Cryssy Dee is a contemporary writer that loves God but not the religion. Through her own trauma, she is therapeutically able to write her perspective of reality. She is a self-proclaimed native of Dallas, Texas but experienced the joys of living in Houston, New Orleans, and also in Rock Springs, Wyoming. At Prairie View A&M University, she graduated as Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in 2008. When she isn't working to ensure the betterment of the elderly and disabled adults/children, she's enjoying her passion of dance. She's a supporter for the awareness of Endometriosis and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). She's also an advocate for No Stigma against mental illness within the Black community.
Cryssy Dee hopes that her six book collection "For Her About Her" will inspire and encourage unsilencing the silenced.
