Toya Raylonn Vickers was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio and currently lives in Columbus, Ohio as a married African American woman. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the Ohio State University and attended Howard University to obtain a Masters degree in Social Work. In 2003, she was involved in a life threatening car accident that turned her life upside down. She found herself trying to re-invent the wheel after healing from her wounds years later. Through much prayer and fasting, she returned to her first love of writing. Dimes, Profiles and Wives was the first book of many to come from this author. By giving you the real in Christian fiction, she dares to walk in the newness of life and humbly writes to glorify God by creating something new every day.
