Dr. Jobyna Terry is a law school graduate from the Charlotte School of Law. Before coming to law school, Dr. Terry attended the Norfolk State University in Norfolk, Virginia. Dr. Terry discovered she had a knack for writing. As an elementary student, she wrote short stories for an in-class competition, which was started by her teacher Mrs. Royster. In her teenage years, she wrote songs and poetry.
During law school, Dr. Terry's writing style changed a bit to become more concise, but it did not change the passion she had for writing. She always had a passion for story telling which is why it came easy in certain classes.
Dr. Terry decided to write Perfectly Brown after taking her Goddaughter, Tynizha, to the library and noticing there were no brown children in the books. She started on her quest to encourage black children to read about themselves, but show them that black families exist. Her next project called "Just Justice" will reflect blended families.
