My name is Jimel Beckett, and I’m an author of various media who was born and raised in the foothills of Appalachia. I currently live in the Chicago metropolitan area with my daughter. I’m eclectic, having diverse interests that show in my writing. I have a degree in Sociology in which my studies focused on crime/deviant behavior for undergrad and race/gender relations in post-grad. I love to travel, and my varied experiences around the world are woven into my stories.
Aside from writing, I love to read, listen to music, watch good TV/movies, crochet, and above all else, spend time with family and friends.
