Y. M. Sheree is an Army veteran who currently resides in Portsmouth, Virginia. She is a proud mother of two daughters, one a CNA and currently in College and the other is serving in the U.S. Army. A graduate of Colorado Technical University she has received two MBAs, one in Business Administration and the other in Project Management. While in High School a short story written about, King Author gained attention of the librarians. She switched her knight to a female and the damsel had been a male. Her best friend co-authored a book when they attended High School together.
While stationed in Germany, she tried her hand at poetry that she sent to a publishing company that turned her down stating her writing was journal entries and not poetry in 2009. Her spirit crushed she put her pen down and stopped writing until 2015. Mary B. Morrison challenged aspiring writers to write a book in ninety days on Facebook. Y.M. Sheree took the challenge as a hobby to pass her time not knowing that later on that year her first published work Purple Haze would release in October 2015. She now has three published books on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.com, Purple Haze, Purple Haze 2, The Switch Up, and Fantasy Island.

1. Besides writing, what else do you like to do?
Besides writing, I enjoy doing numerous things. I love to watch movies, television shows, basketball, MMA, and football. I also enjoy reading books along with playing video games.
2. What inspired you to become an author?
I never thought about becoming an author. I joined Mary B Morrison’s Write a book in 90-day challenge just to pass my time. After I completed my first book, I decided to publish after receiving nice feedback from a few friends. After that I wrote three more books and I am still going.
3. What was your first reaction when your debut novel was published?
To be honest, I felt all type of emotions. I was scared, excited, nervous, and very proud. I feel all this when I release each of my books.
4. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
I see myself as a published author of at least 15-20 books with a huge following. A girl can dream can’t she.
5. What advice can you give to anyone who wants to become an author?
My advice to a new author is not to put a lot of pressure on yourself. The main thing to do is get your story out of your head. You can tweak as many times as necessary when you do your revisions. Make sure to have a good team in your corner that truly supports you and you can learn from. You still want to do your own research so you don’t always receive it second hand. Also before signing to smaller publishing companies make sure, you have someone look over your contract for you.
