Winter Giovanni is a native of Norfolk, Virginia. She is a single mother of five and currently seeking her bachelor's degree in Social Work at Norfolk State University.
Ms. Giovanni started writing her first of three urban novels four years ago. She was inspired by rap artist/actor/author LL Cool J aka Todd James to write, The Rise and Fall of a Hustler. Knowing that she had a story to tell of living the life of a hustler's wifey including ducking bullets, getting robbed to doing a state and federal bid, Ms. Giovanni knew she had a story to tell.
Thus, as she began breathing life into her ink pen, she soon thereafter completed her first manuscript. It laid dormant for two years due to her enduring many trials and tribulations. Soon after getting her feet planted back onto planet rock, Ms. Giovanni became a hurricane and nothing would stop her from getting her book to her future readers. She not only had to prove that dreams can come true, she had five reasons and tiny eyes watching her so she had to keep on keeping on.
"if you can dream it, you can believe it, you can achieve it!"
So, just sit back, relax and enjoy as you are put on an emotional roller coaster as you take a ride on the wild side of Winter Giovanni's lane.
"The Rise and Fall of a Hustler" will be on amazon.com Monday January 5, 2009 or you can check her out at www.myspace.com/wintergiovanni
