About the Authors:

Chyrel J. Jackson and Lyris D. Wallace are avid lovers, readers and writers of African American Literature. They grew up in  a Southern Suburb of Chicago, IL. Country Club Hills. As young girls they read Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, and Judy Blume  novels. College was the real scholastic awakening introducing these two Literary Enthusiasts to the Literary works of their  great ancestors: James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou and others. These writers influenced Chyrel and Lyris so  much. It only makes sense that they would now be writing in the Spirit of these ancestors. Giving a voice to social issues  that plague our modern time.  
Their latest self-published works are books of poetry: Mirrored Images and Different Sides of the Same Coin. Both Books  mirror messaging “no pun intended.” Ranging from a host of life topics: relationships, frayed familial dynamics, juggling  life, single parenting, racism, etc. Some have said, our books are reminiscent of Harlem Renaissance revisited. Our  anthologies of poems pair current social and living conditions with poetic verse. In this volume the sometimes darker sides and motives of human nature are also addressed.

Writing allowed Chyrel and Lyris to find their voice. Surviving a deadly pandemic, navigating life’s rough waters, and  continuing to stay true to themselves birthed their latest book Mirrored Images. 
Can magic be recreated for a second time? The sisters believe that it can. We write about what we know. Our experiences  as black women are what we know well. Our writing is lensed from that intrinsically authentic experience.

Live. Love. Laugh.
