Author Latosha Faulkner is from a small town known as Lambert, MS. She worked as a caregiver for over 10 years and has sincere interest in people and their everyday challenges surrounded by life. She experienced her own share of life problems that personally uncovered a different outlook on life. Therefore, it is no surprise that she wrote “Silently Betrayed,” aiming at exposing the menace of stigma against people living with HIV. It is her desire to help those suffering in silence live their best lives, with or without their status known to the public. Latosha has made steps to further her studies so as to obtain her Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling. This would enable her to educate, counsel, and support people living with Mental Health Disorders, HIV/AIDS, and unexpected life situations.
Latosha started writing at the age of 10. Writing became her go to as a way to cope during her hard times.
She encourages others to walk in a light that can never be dark again, a walk in FAITH that is. Her favorite quote to others remains, “Just because the bullet didn’t hit you, doesn’t mean you forget how close you were to that bullet.”
