1472817_10202347569188102_1462483328_nBorn, Shanna Marie Teasley in December of 1980 to Deacon James (deceased) and Deaconess Priscilla Teasley; Shan Marie is a native of Atlanta, Georgia. Raised in near by Decatur, Georgia (east of Atlanta), she is the middle child with an older brother and younger sister. Searching for a place to belong and how she could fit into the equation of life, at the tender age of nine she wrote her first short story. Always hav- ing a vivid imagination – in addition to real life situa- tions and circumstances – she began to put her thoughts and feelings on paper..Overwhelmed with a need to express herself – also to simply entertain others – Shan Marie continued to explore the newly found love for literature. She fell head-over-heels in love with Urban Fiction, Thrillers, Suspense and Mystery novels. By the age of seventeen, she’d completed her very first novel; needless to say, she’s grown emotionally and mentally since then, bring- ing her writing full circle.Shan Marie diligently writes with a heart-filled desire to provide heart-wrenching and warming fiction for her readers. Writing novels that specialize in heroin based plots with the twists and turns of street life is her passion. Full of love for a plethora of genres, she’s completed eight novels; including an Urban Christian novel and the first of an Urban Murder Mystery series.

Shan Marie is fully aware of the gift and talent that her heavenly Father has bestowed upon her, there- fore, she has also began a Spiritual Guidance book that focuses on new and returning Believers of Christ. It may sound strange and to some, maybe even hypocriti- cal to write Urban Fiction and anything Chris-
tian. However, isn’t that life? Don’t we all have a past? Yes we do and Shan Marie chooses to tell both sides of the story; the before and the after.

The joy that the art of writing brings her seems to have no end and pushes her to work hard, network and stay true to who she is as an author. This is the only way that Shan Marie feels that she can honestly make a name for herself in the literary world. That being said; she refuse to limit herself to one genre or any particular audience – outside of children, of course. The stories that she brings to the world are from her personal point of view and are as honest as they come. Life has truly taught Shan Marie that things don’t always go as you would like or even hope for them
to. This knowledge forces reality with a smidge of fantasy together and make them work as one.

Shan Marie is determined to provide, for her readers, Urban Fiction and Street Fiction at Its Best! There is abso- lute pleasure that comes from within her, to bring characters to life that have the power to grab readers and pull them into their world. She is confident that this is a uniqueness that separates her from others and places her on the road to becoming one of the next big things to hit paper.


Thou shall kill: in order to live! Being a drug lords’ woman proves to be no easy task; especially when you’re obli- gated to take over the business that has been nurtured by your man for countless years.

After the arrest of her lover, Carlos, Kamille ‘Kami’ Lathan, holds down the business until his long awaited return. Kamille quickly learns that nothing last forever as she witnesses Carlos’ murder in their own home.

Abandoned, now for the second time in her life and feel- ing indebted to him; she immediately picks up where he left off. With Carlos’ best friend Joe, by her side, Kamille can’t go wrong. Always a lover of

While plotting her revenge on the king pin believed to be responsible for Carlos’ death, Kamille’s life begins to spiral out of control. Her once desirable life quickly becomes an erupted volcano with never ending duplicity. Greed sheds light on so-called friends and jealousy of Kamille’s success rears its ugly head; life as she knows it, falls apart. Who can she trust? Where can she turn? Giving up and bailing out is not an op- tion.

For reasons unknown, Kamille finds herself wanted dead by those she once shared close bonds with. Stemming from an entourage that catered to her every need; she finds herself nearly alone with only a few people in the world that she can completely depend on. Creating new plans, moving fast, meeting new hustlers and murdering her enemies is the only way for her to maintain her rightfully earned title as the Candy Lady.
