Meet The Author

Taja Gatson was born and raised on the Northside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Growing up, Taja read countless urban fiction books, with Sista Souljah being her favorite author. She always had a passion for writing, but as she got older, it slowly faded, and cooking became her newfound passion.

It wasn’t until 2016, Taja participated in a challenge called the #shortstorychallenge on Facebook, and after receiving a lot of positive feedback, that’s when she decided to finish the book called "I Hope He's Everything U Wished For,” which released on June 15th, 2021. 

Taja enjoys spending time with her family & friends as well as cooking. Her days are spent working full-time in the custodian field, but she plans to continue incorporating writing as a second job to serve her readers with must-read books.


Taja wrote and published another Urban Fiction book called "Revenge Served Cold" in late 2021, and while she plans to start and publish Part Two soon, Taja knew she needed a mental break from the world. So, by discovering herself and healing her inner child traumas, Taja published a self-help workbook/journal for women and men who require healing their inner child traumas.

Hangin' It Up: Finally, Healing and Mental Health for Men are Self-help workbook/journal to help you receive clarity by looking in the mirror and starting your healing process. Stop covering your problems up with a band-aid, instead rip it off, and assist the situation so that you won't be in pain anymore.
