Sumayah is an African American Muslim woman who was always considered the "black sheep" of her prestigious family. Born and raised in Philadelphia and HBCU educated she was determined to embark on a path of self-discovery. She struggled with her identity and where she fit within society. Until she met Jerome Whittington, who introduced her to his BDSM/Kink lifestyle. The intense pleasure she experienced with him caused her to question her sexuality and core beliefs. And if that's not enough, heavy family secrets are revealed that will change the course of her life.
How It Got Started
While working for a telecommunications company taking catalog orders over the phone, Nazia had an overwhelming feeling of being unfulfilled. After about two months, she decided one day to quiet. That's right, she walked right down to HR and informed them that she would not be returning. She felt a pull towards something greater. When Nazia returned home, she enrolled in an Author's Masterclass. After six weeks, she knew that she was ready to tell her story she began writing a book about her life, how she overcame generational trauma, and its effects on generations to come. However, she didn't expect that talking about her childhood would kick up emotions that she thought were healed. She then began writing "Sumayah's Secret" as a distraction while working on those unhealed areas. The story quickly took a life of its own and became one of the best stories she'd written so far.
