Contemporary Urban Storyteller
DeAnn Lain was born November eighth in Queens, New York. Achieving a Bachelor’s Degree in English from Paine College in Augusta, Georgia and a Master’s of Science in Secondary Education from Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, New York. An educator for many years in the classroom, Ms. Lain walked away from it all to pursue her writing career with the support of her family and friends after the crossroads in life presented her with a life altering career change.
Being a woman of a certain age who writes for the drama and the passion, which lives in all of us, her philosophy as an educator is to have her readers’ wonder, to explore and to enjoy. Her style of writing can be best described as an “entertaining expedition” layered with fun, laughing, thinking, and learning from life lessons that are taught through the lives of others. Ms. Lain’s only message is that her readers simply understand that life is a “university” if you just stop and watch for the: who; what; when; where; why and how.
DeAnn Lain bundles up a cast of characters that are identifiable to the reader as real people; who are real woman; who deal with real life situations; who find real solutions to their issues.
