Stumbling across the “Negro” section in her high school library to find the works of Langston Hughes, James Weldon Johnson, Claude McKay and her most beloved James Baldwin, to name a few, Margie Rose Walker believed writing was what she wanted to do the rest of her life. She also realized that the life of a fiction writer demanded a non-fiction career.
Margie is a graduate of Texas Southern University, where she earned a Bachelors and Masters of Arts in Speech Communication. Following a short stint at Colorado State University, with an interest in radio/television, she most recently studied anthropology at the University of Houston in order to ghost write a book for a physical anthropologist.
Margie has held a number of positions in the communications field: Program Director at KTSU, editor with the Houston Defender and Style magazine, and adjunct professor in the TSU School of Communications.
Margie wrote eight novels and four novellas for Kensington and the now-defunct Marron Publishers, in the genres of romance, romantic suspense, and mystery, and then she decided to self publish. The fruits of her labor are her most recent release, Stolen Moments, which was published in 2013, A Slice of Reparations, published in 2011 and In Blood Only, published in 2012.
