Essence Bestselling author D.T. Pollard was born in Henderson, Texas, and currently lives in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. He is married and has one son.
Drawn to writing at an early age D T wrote short stories and attempted his first novel while attending West Rusk High School in New London, Texas. Going as far as to purchase a portable electric typewriter he wrote stories but didn’t understand the world of publishing and never sought that avenue. D.T. earned an academic scholarship to the School of Business and Industry at Florida A & M University in Tallahassee, Florida. He stopped writing during his second year in college.
After working in sales for some of the giants of the technology world for over twenty-five years D.T.’s desire to write returned after losing several siblings from various causes. His first novel The Trophy Wife Network was published in April 2006 followed by Rooftop Diva-A Novel of Triumph After Katrina in September 2006. Fools’ Heaven is his third novel. Rooftop Diva made the Essence bestselling hardcover extended list in October 2007. Fools’ Heaven was rated 4.5 out of five stars by the Rawsistaz Reviewers and rated as one of their favorites.
