Crystal Lacey Winslow

Brooklyn-born author Crystal Lacey Winslow began to write creatively at an early age drawing inspiration from her travels and the many colorful people she encountered. The result is a unique and melodramatic storytelling technique evident in both her deeply personal spoken word/poetry book Melodrama, and in her recently released character-driven and remarkably visual novel Life, Love & Loneliness.

@TEAM_MELODRAMAFollowing the novel’s introduction in which Crystal offers her personal take on life, love and loneliness, readers are quickly hooked by the realism of her writing. Her page-turning story of Urban America is peopled with young, sexy, strong-willed characters. Equal parts political intrigue and spicy interracial relations only add to the mix.

Crystal earned her baccalaureate degree in Legal Assistant Studies and currently works for one of the largest law firms in the country. She published Melodrama in 2000, and started her own publishing company, Melodrama Publishing, in 2001. She is intent on publishing the work of other African-American authors as well as her own future work.
