Life should not measured by the number of breaths we take – but by those moments that take our breath away.


Background Information

Life, Love, (or lack thereof) Music, and people, as well as imagination and dreams is what inspires me to write.

I had a very difficult life growing up. I'm sure that's a song a lot of people sing these days. But my life has been one tragedy after another. Starting at age 14 I've been a victim of rape, which led to my becoming an unwed mother, and then getting into one violet relationship after another. I've been a battered girlfriend, and a battered wife but I realized that I had two choices in life, to give up or to keep going. I chose the latter and by doing so, my writing was unleashed.

I've always enjoyed telling stories. My first book was written when I was in first grade as a class assignment when the teacher gave the class each an empty book cover. We were to write a story to go with the cover. I found that book after my mother passed away. That was when I realized that my imagination had started at a young age. Also, my father used to tell me stories that he would make up and they were fasinating. So, I decided to use the tragedies of my life as a backdrop in writing my stories. Some instances are true, some are not, but I think that's what makes it so interesting, the audience can't tell which is which. My second book, Shades in Love II-The Secret Within Her is also available. It is a spin off of my first book entitled, Shades in Love-Incriminating Evidence. My first book was written basically for myself until a friend read the manuscript and prompted me to get it published. So I did. I couldn't believe the support and reviews that I have received from the many readers, which in itself has inspired me to continue writing. I love to entertain people by giving them a release from a stressful day.

I think that life should not measured by the number of breaths we take – but by those moments that take our breath away. I'd like to be remembered as someone who can invoke unforgetable and passionate feelings in people. And if I can do that with my writing, then I have accomplished what I set out to do.

Maya Angelo said, "In life, people may forget what you said, and people may forget what you did, but people will never forget how you make them feel."  Words to live by.

Accomplishments

I've received an outstanding literary accomplishment of Merit award for a poetry piece entitled “My Friend” from the Creative Arts & Science Enterprises.

I have also received awards from the IMTA (International Modeling & Talent Association)for TV Beauty, Real People, and Runway Modeling just to name a few.

So far I have had the opportunity to be asked to appear on a local talk show in Bronx, NY to discuss my book, in which the talk show also filmed my first booksigning at Barnes and Nobles and aired part of that on the show. The interview can be read on my website at www.shades.webalias.com.

Additional Information

I have had the opportunity to work in the film industry with Jim Carrey, Danny Devito, Courtney Love, Lee Meriwether, Billy Cobb, Abigail Breslin, Drew Fuller, Director Stephen Hays, Radio & TV personality Steve Harris as well as many many others, and have my first attempt at writing a screenplay to catch the attention of award winning Producer/Actor/Director Kevin Hooks. I'd also like to thank those who have taken the time to send your comments to me about what you thought of the books. Authors are nothing without their fans. Here are just a few of the commments from readers about my first book:

It takes you just like a movie.
I could hardly put it down. I could see everything as I read just as if I was watching it on the screen. I went to sleep with the book by the bed so when I wake up I could read. I've never done that before with any book.

3 Bowls of Grits
Shades In Love: Incriminating Evidence is a roller coaster ride that will have readers guessing until the very last word. The author introduces a lot of different plot twists that hold readers' interest. Ms. Gregory pulls this story together in such a way that I finished the book wanting more. I give this story 3 hot bowls of grits, and I anticipate reading the continuing saga of Ebonee "Coco" Shades.

Anticipation
I found the book good entertainment - suspenseful, creative, and gripping. Tastefully done.
J. Sinninger - General Book Manager – IPFW Bookstore, Fort Wayne, IN

Like a Tornado
The suspense is great! It kept me on the edge of my seat. When you thought it was headed in one direction it sends you spinning off into another. It was like a Tornado - it sucks you up and you don't know where you're going to land. Albert – CA
