About the Author: M’Hogany reins from Dallas, Tx where she her literal career. Shy and soft spoken when you first meet, but a warm and welcoming spirit embraces you with unconditional love and endless support. In addition to being an author, she’s dabbling her skills into film-maker as well as playwright with projects bound for exposure in 2016. First and foremost, her skills start as all things do in the church where, for her, her musical background is deeply rooted. By day she’s a Nationally Certified Pharmacy and IV Technician for over and growing, with strong ties in the medical field. She started her literal venture around 12 as a poet, but placed it on the back burner to enjoy her youth. As life took it’s turns, writing beckoned her attention once more, but again she declined it’s offer. After 10 years of procrastination, she took on the challenge of the pen. Not ready to indulge deeply, she veered elsewhere. When tragedy, pain, and shattering events took place years down the road, M’Hogany sought refuge in what was once her biggest fear. Through that pain and fear, M’Hogany self-published and penned her debut novel “Sinful Secrets” the first book of her Sinful series under her company Melodic Publications, LLC.
“I write Relatable Fiction. Join me on this emotional roller-coaster that I promise you’ll want more” – M’Hogany
