Connie Briscoe has been a full-time published author for more than twenty-five years. Over that time, she has written nine books, plus YOU NEVER KNOW (HarperCollins, Amistad, 2023), her first domestic suspense novel, and a photo-essay book on stylish Black seniors (STEPPING OUT, Penguin Random House, Potter, 2023).
Her work has been published globally, hitting the bestseller lists of the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, and Baltimore Sun amongst many other publications. She has been featured in numerous articles and profiles, as well as on television programs such as Good Morning America.
She was born with a mild hearing impairment but has never let that hold her back. After progressively losing more of her hearing, several years ago she had a cochlear implant and it restored much of what she had lost. She believes that the challenges of dealing with a hearing loss helped make her stronger, more resilient, and more determined to reach her goals.
In her spare time, she enjoys reading, crafting jewelry, and traveling.
