Hi everyone!! The 30 Days, 30 Authors event is winding down, but there are still some amazing authors that will be getting their chance to shine, including this wonderful author who hasn’t even released a book yet. Laurencia Smith, aka Alithea-Jae, is definitely new to the writing game, but she has brought her A-game and is ready to set her mark as the premier romance author. She has even left an impression on me as she has become my first author to be signed under my new publishing company, SBinkley Publishing (which I will give more details on later).
Now, here’s Laurencia! 🙂
I’m Alithea-Jae a DIVA with a Pen! I live in the beautiful islands of the Bahamas. I’m currently a sophomore at the College of Bahamas studying a degree in Media Journalism. I’m actively involved in my community as well as an Advisor for Junior Achievement Bahamas. Writing has always been my first love.

My first novel “Love on Track” will be published in the near feature.
