Who is Jerra Latrice?

Editor. writer. consultant. author.

For Jerra Latrice, writing has always been a natural gift. Matter of fact, her sixth-grade English teacher once proclaimed, "If you keep this writing up, one day, I'll be reading one of your books!" Eventually, her teacher's words came into fruition. Through purchasing a 'Birth Your Book' course with Tony Gaskins, she wrote and self-published her first book, and has been featured on several podcasts, radio interviews, spoken on panels, and was featured at The Essence Festival in New Orleans and Black Women's Expo in Atlanta. 

Jerra then established Gifted With a Pen, where she and her team provide expert editing services for non-fiction authors, ghostwrite articles for major magazine publications, and consult aspiring authors and provide them with the blueprint to self-publishing their books. 

As Proverbs 18:16 states, "A man's gift makes room for him and brings him before great men." Through happenstance, Jerra Latrice started working with Tony Gaskins as an independent contractor/editor for his Birth Your Book students. What a full-circle moment!

In her spare time, Jerra enjoys traveling, decorating, reading, writing, and spending time with family and friends. Her next book will be released late 2021.

One thing I can say about this up and coming Author is her ability to hold up a double mirror. While she's looking in the mirror bettering herself she's challenging you to do the same. It's no easy thing to do but she's done it! Women around the world can now be confident in doing the same!
