LaKeshia Whitehurst

LaKeshia enjoyed writing while in high school and was also a fervent reader. Sometime along the journey to adulthood she misplaced the passion. Almost 30 years later the desire to read and write returned. She signed up for some courses at the Muse Writer’s Center in Norfolk. After taking the Writing Children’s Picture Book course she knew she had found a fit. Her desire is to share valuable lessons with children while entertaining them. Her first book Wally’s Dream also gives her an opportunity to talk about another one of her loves, baking.

LaKeshia is a military veteran who loves to be crafty. She lives in Newport News with her husband of 15 years. Together they have 3 children and 7 grandchildren, so there is no shortage of little people to test story material on.
