I was born 6.24.1982 on the Southside of Chicago to a beautiful mother. I should have known that God has something for me to do here on this earth because I shouldn't be here today - when I was an infant I almost died. If it wasn't for the quick thinking of a visiting relative I would have died before I was one year old.


I love to create. I love to write. I love graphic design. I have published eight books - currently working on much more. 

I have helped many authors self-publish their projects and enjoy the creative process that goes into book publishing! 

I'm also a certified life coach. It is my desire to help women transform their lives. I like to say I'm an advocate for their potential transformation. 


Who is Ty You, personally? For me, I sum myself up into three words: Faith. Soul. & My Opinion.


Faith has become my first love. I discovered the Lord in 2005 and I have been with him ever since. Most of my decisions are based around faith. Faith is who I am. So if I speak in the flesh, don't be surprised if, later on, I correct myself and have a different opinion or decision centered around faith.


Soul to me is love or anything that you're sincerely, unapologetically passionate about. I'm a hopeless romantic. I love everything vintage. I'm in love with the eras of the 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s. Anything that brings nostalgia makes me smile. Soul comes from the deepness of the heart and I just want to bare my soul.


My Opinion... everybody has one. Everybody gives theirs. You see it on social media, you see it on the blogs, you see it in magazines, you see it in the newspaper, and you see it on television. I'm just joining the bandwagon.
