There was never a time when I wasn’t about to start a book, wasn’t already deep in a book—or had just finished one. I grew up believing in the importance of reading, and became a lover of all things romance when my mother gave her my first romance novel. I write edgy contemporary romance with kick-ass heroines and the swoon-worthy heroes who love them.
I was born in Nashville, Tennessee and was raised by my loving grandparents Hattie and Ernest Fletcher. I discovered my love for writing in the 5th Grade thanks to a wonderful teacher named Ms. Middlebrooks. I have written stage plays, television scripts, short stories, and now novels. I have been married to the love of my life Ron for over 20 years and we share a handsome five-year-old son named Nathaniel. We live overseas and I love to read, travel, and dance.I am currently signed with Major Key Publishing.
Britt Joni is a Midwestern girl with Southern roots. She’s a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s a strong representation of black love. If asked to describe herself she’d probably tell you she is a modern day hippie with a dope soul. In short Britt Joni is a book hoarding, journal writing, Neo Soul & 90’s R & B grooving, natural hair wearing, Chadwick Boseman loving, wine and whiskey consuming, kismet believing, lipstick junkie, who just wants to spread her love and gift of writing with someone other than herself. When Britt Joni is not chasing down her dreams with a pen, she is being a mommy to an AMAZING little boy.
Britt Joni has always used writing as a form of therapy. From a very early age she has always carried multiple journals around to jot down her thoughts, scribble down a quick poem, or to write out a story. After losing her biological father she decided life was too short to live in fear or with regrets so she took a leap of faith and started following her dream of writing. Britt Joni’s ultimate literary goal is to write from the heart and to let her fascination with black love soar into the world.
