About the Author Latiera Ford

Latiera Ford is a career HR Professional turned Author and Entrepreneur. Born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago, IL., she has always taken pride in hard work and dedication.

Through news outlets, social media, family, and friends she noticed a lack of sensitivity that children have today. This has led to an increase in bullying, lack of positive self-image and acceptance, as well as family issues. Upon discovering this powerful message that needed to be addressed she decided to self-publish her first book entitled Baby Love.

This book provides children from ages 13 and up with a straight forward approach to some of today’s most pressing issues. While tackling the aforementioned issues plaguing some of our youth, it also provides a direct approach on how they can be handled, while also teaching lessons of love and kindness.

Unlike the normal cookie cutter children’s stories, this book is also honest to the core with some of the real issues that exist within families across America.

Baby Love has proven to be a strong book for this Chicago native, and is destined to continue making waves throughout the literary scene. While promoting this project, Latiera is currently in Atlanta looking to further expand her brand through speaking engagements, press, school, vendor events and more!

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

If I asked you what Death would look like, you’d probably go for something along the lines of an angry skeleton wearing a monk’s robe and carrying a very sharp farm implement with which to rip your soul from your body—am I right? Maybe he’d even have glowing yellow orbs where his eyes should be and speak with a voice that comes from his toes and goes right through you, despite the fact he doesn’t actually have a larynx or any vocal chords to speak of. And he’d have a strange obsession with egg-timers.

In fact, apart from the angry bit, he was nothing like that.

Life was a bitch, but if Tabitha Brownlee was to be believed, Death was an alcoholic megalomaniac with a penchant for single malt and eyebrows that met in the middle.  The problem was, that he alone had the power to put her soul back into her body and evict the son of a bitch who’d taken her place.

Eden Summers has an unhealthy obsession with chocolate, a hate-hate relationship with the IRS, and a failing bakery. Her love life is…well, not dying, to be dying it would first have to exist, right? And the only person filling up her inbox is her overprotective mother.

To top things off her next-door neighbor is a rude, obnoxious sex maniac. When he’s not keeping her up half the night with all his banging and moaning, he’s turning her into a babbling idiot.

Infuriating.

Marcun Clacka has come to Earth to locate a precious jewel for his client. He doesn’t like Earth; the people are inferior and, unlike his pack mates, he does not wish to find a human female to mate.

Humans are trouble. Fragile. And loud.

Except the tiny female who lives next to him isn’t too annoying. And she is quite attractive. Foolishly courageous. Yes, perhaps he could mate with her.
There is just one problem. Sky Warriors mate in packs. One female. Six males.
And Marcun does not intend to share the little female.

Mine.
