Aviyah A. Forrest is a lifelong resident of the beautiful state of Maryland. She lived in Prince George’s County for more than 30 years. She currently lives in Baltimore with her two beautiful children. She has been a public school teacher for 17 years and is a National Board Certified Teacher. She was an avid horseback rider in her younger years and even competed on her college team. Summer is her favorite time as it brings a much-needed break from the school year and lots of time with friends eating Maryland blue crabs. Aviyah began writing after a very difficult period in her life. Athough this is her first book, it is her sincere hope that it won’t be her last!
