Rekaya Gibson is a consultant and freelance writer. Sheis not committed to any one genre, so she is an eclectic writer. Her love for food is evident throughout her fiction work, The Food Temptress, and her children’s book, “Are There French Fries in Heaven?” Her nonfiction articles have appeared in the Lake of the Ozarks Second Home Living Magazine, Relocating in Saint Louis Magazine, and Times Picayune Newspaper. In 2006, she self-published an e-Book, “Wow Them With Your Grant Proposal” and other grant-related e-Special Reports under her own e-publishing company, Gibson Girl Publishing Company.
Recently, the federal government selected her to review and score grant applications on preventing underage drinking. Rekaya has spent ten years working in the violence/drug prevention fields and several semesters teaching a communication course at a community college. In addition, she has taught employees at a local casino how to write in English. This encouraged her to start her own nonprofit agency that focuses on language skills and literacy.
In the near future, she plans to dabble in politics - or at least write about it - as she completes her doctoral degree in political science. She holds a Master's degree in Public Administration from the University of New Orleans and a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Affairs with a concentration in Criminal Justice from Indiana University. Although a transplant to Nevada because of Hurricane Katrina, she now calls Las Vegas her home. She was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
