Jamila Avalon is a Christian author of fiction novels, poetry, and children’s books. She was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY with Afro-Latina roots from Panama and Costa Rica. She is happily married to her high school sweetheart (and father to her beautiful daughter Ava), Devon Charles. She earned her Bachelor’s in English from Queens College, CUNY and Master’s in Higher Education Leadership & Research Methodology from Florida Atlantic University. Over time, writing for Jamila has evolved from an outlet to express her thoughts to a way to encourage, inspire and entertain others. Her passion has led her to publish her first 2 books in 2022, a fiction novel (A Good Life) designed to inspire people to live their best lives and a children’s book (Who’s the Prettiest Girl in the World?) intended to uplift young girls to know their value. As she continues to live her purpose, Jamila is looking forward to publishing more books for readers to remain encouraged and inspired to be the best version of themselves.
