Meet Jerra

AUTHOR consultant. editor. ghostwriter. singles coach.

For Jerra Latrice, writing has always been a gift and a passion. 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.

She self-published her first book, 'I Was Bitter, Now I'm Better' in 2017. Since the release of her empowering and candid relationship memoir, she has been featured on several podcasts, radio interviews, spoken on panels, in addition to being featured at The Essence Festival in New Orleans and Black Women's Expo in Atlanta. Her second book has an anticipated release date in 4th Quarter 2020.

In November 2019, Jerra founded Gifted With a Pen, LLC, and her team provides author consulting, editing/proofreading, and ghostwriting services for aspiring and established authors. As Proverbs 18:16 states, "A man's gift makes room for him and brings him before great men." Your gift can make room for you, too. Allow the team at Gifted With a Pen to enhance your gift. 

In her spare time, Jerra Latrice enjoys traveling, decorating, reading, writing, and preparing a delicious vegan dish. She is also a proud member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. EE-YIP!

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!
