Keyanna Ford is an author, blogger and advocate for ending domestic violence. Known for her numerous works of romantic urban fiction, including the highly-acclaimed novel Living In Fear, Keyanna has built her writing career from exploring and documenting her own life experiences, and she enjoys engaging in conversation with others who have walked similar paths. Her latest sequel, I Hate That I Love You solidifies her passion to contribute to literary world.
Her inspiration to become a writer began when she was still in school, in her home town of Kalamazoo, MI. After experiencing the horror of a relationship-gone-wrong, Keyanna dealt with the pain through writing. Without a safety network to turn to for help, and at a loss as to how else to constructively deal with the pain she was feeling, Keyanna began adding fictional elements and characters to her work in order to distance herself from the reality of what had happened to her. Eventually, she had a novel worth of text and from there, her career was born.
