and her home. We all can relate to the pressures of not being

positive change in the lives of all children.

Latiera
Ford is a career HR Professional turned Author and Entrepreneur. Born
and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago, IL., she has always taken
pride in hard work and dedication.
Through
news outlets, social media, family, and friends she noticed a lack of
sensitivity that children have today. This has led to an increase in
bullying, lack of positive self-image and acceptance, as well as
family issues. Upon discovering this powerful message that needed to
be addressed she decided to self-publish her first book entitled Baby
Love. This book provides children from ages 13 and up with a straight
forward approach to some of today’s most pressing issues. While
tackling the aforementioned issues plaguing some of our youth, it
also provides a direct approach on how they can be handled, while
also teaching lessons of love and kindness. Unlike the normal cookie
cutter children’s stories, this book is also honest to the core
with some of the real issues that exist within families across
America.
Baby
Love has proven to be a strong book for this Chicago Native, and is
destined to continue making waves throughout the literary scene.
While promoting this project, Latiera is currently in Atlanta looking
to further expand her brand through speaking engagements, press,
school, vendor events and more!

I  like Florida. If you could travel to any time in history, when would you visit?

If I could time travel, I’d go to Jerusalem in Jesus’ time to meet him.

If you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would it be? What food would you serve?

If I could have dinner with any of my characters, it’d be Victoria Scarlett Jones and Jimbo Bean. I’d serve chicken and dumplings.

If you could travel anywhere on earth or off, where would you go?

I’d visit the Great Wall of China. (I’ve already visited the pyramids of Egypt.)

5 stars.

This is a well-written tale of four very intelligent classmates that by chance get a “right day” for themselves and those who come in contact with them.

The story begins with Destiny, a girl in her sixteenth year, living in a boarding school—the last of many. She has been surrounded by monotonous schedules day after day since she was sent to the boarding schools when she was seven years old. But this day was to be a different day; this day she was going to break the rules and take whatever came. She would have done it by herself but the beautiful car idling (more…)
