Alethea Gibbs was born on June 29th in Newark, New Jersey. However, she was raised in Irvington, New Jersey. She grew up without her father actively being in here life, but credits his absence into teaching her many lessons that created the strong woman she is today. "I realized that creative writing was my outlet as it was the only area that allowed me to feel completely free" is what Gibbs says about channeling her experiences growing up into something positive. She graduated from New Jersey University in 2009. She says that life didn't get easier for her after graduation and in fact became harder! She tried to find career opportunities that would fit her lifestyle, but often felt judged instead of accepted for her authenticity. She needed to find a place to escape and was reminded of her passion for writing through those transitory experiences. She put all of her passion and creative thinking into her book, "They Don't Hear Her Cries" which was released on Amazon.
