Ashley and JaQuavis were 17 years old when they caught the attention of Carl Webber. With his assistance, they landed publishing deals during their freshman year in college, a feat that few other authors can boast about.

They starting releasing smash hit after smash hit, quickly making a name for themselves within the North American publishing market. Besides their ghostwriting achievements, the pair was also fortunate enough to make appearances in Vibe, Don Diva, Essence, and other notable publications. They even secured a lucrative publishing deal with Cash Money Records.

However, Ashley Antoinette’s solo career was just as successful. Some of the books she wrote appeared in New York Times bestseller lists. Antoinette, who was born in Flint, MI, eventually turned her attention to Hollywood, using her talent for telling intriguing crime-filled stories to write television pilots.

Finding the time to write was not always easy for the author. The fact that she was still in college when she got her publishing deal meant that the author had to balance her writing schedule with the demands of her classes.

But Antoinette’s time on the streets had instilled in her a desire to succeed despite the odds. She used that drive to persevere in the face of the many obstacles that threatened to block her path.

Some of the author’s heroines share this trait. Characters like Bleu from the ‘Luxe’ series are innocent and naive but they are also strong and determined. And even though they keep stumbling on their path to womanhood, like Antoinette, they are resilient enough to take the punishment that life throws there away.

Antoinette does not hesitate to take inspiration from real life. As far as she’s concerned, real life is no different from a novel. Every new person that enters an individual’s life adds a new page to their book, changing the trajectory of their life story.

This is the reason why Antoinette is drawn to people that have interesting human experiences. It is also the reason why the author’s stories are always so fresh even though she has written dozens of novels.

The world never stays the same, not for Antoinette. Each new day allows the author to perceive things through a new lens. The experiences she encounters regularly are always changing the way she thinks. They force her to grow.

Because her perception is always changing, her stories cannot stay the same. She has a new well of emotions and circumstances to draw from whenever she sits down to write. In most cases, Antoinette makes an effort to plan her novels. She wants to know the direction a story will take before she sits down to write it.

Though, there are cases where she will take a more spontaneous approach to the writing process by ignoring the planning stage and allowing the story to surprise her with unexpected twists and turns.

Ashley Antoinette Awards

Antoinette received an honorable mention from the Street Literature Book Award Medal (2014).

Best Ashley Antoinette Books

The author reads both fiction and non-fiction. Her relationship with Warner Horizon and Universal began in 2015. Antoinette’s best books include:

The Cartel: The Diamond family was powerful. But their success relied heavily on the leadership of Carter Diamond, Miami’s most ruthless gangster. When Carter died, all eyes turned to Carter Jones, his illegitimate son.

The young man had quite the arduous task ahead of him; a task that was made all the more difficult when Miamor was hired to kill him. Miamor was as notorious for her beauty as she was for her skill as a contract killer. She never expected Carter Jones to steal her heart.

The Last Chapter: Carter and Miamor were once thick as thieves. But their relationship deteriorated once Carter learned the truth. Now, the only thing he wants is revenge. Carter knows that Miamor was responsible for the destruction of the Diamond family. He won’t stop until she dies.
