Fatima comes from the water. After much travel, Texas claimed her against her will. She is the eldest of five. Her mother and her Nana raised her. They showed her the strength in women goes beyond anything one can read on feminism, and that the best way to greet darkness is by standing tall and smiling. Her mother gave her words. She read to her every night when she was a child. When she had to work she left her voice in a tape-recorder, picking up the story from where we left off the night before so she could still fall asleep enveloped in her presence. This love of stories and reading shaped her into a writer. Days she does not spend in a bookstore are spent as an educator for The Writer’s Garret, where she gives poetry to children and families in schools and community centers. It would make her unbearably happy to see her name on the spine of a book of poetry and to write stories treasured by children.
