About the Author

My name is Yuwanda Black and I'm a freelance writer, author and web entrepreneur.

I've been a freelance writer since 1993, a self-published ebook writer/author since 2002 and an internet marketer since 2008.

TRAVELING FREELANCE WRITER

My primary residence is in the U.S., but I travel frequently to Jamaica (Negril). I visited for the first time in 2009 and started going back on a regular basis. After so many trips (and so many expensive hotels) I thought, "It's cheaper to rent!"

So I did.

Since 2010, I've rented four places in Negril -- from studios with ocean views to a two-bedroom/two-bath house with a yard and access to an infinity pool (which overlooked the ocean; it was beyond gorgeous!).

Now, I have a one-bedroom apartment that is about a 20-minute walk to the beach and 3 minutes to bars and restaurants.

Note: See the videos attached to my profile here to get an idea of some of the fun stuff there is to do in Jamaica -- and to see how beautiful it is. They detail one of the many trips I've taken to the mineral springs in the Blue Mountains.

I have the most amazing massages when I go here ... and talk about natural beauty -- this country is absolutely gorgeous!

THE THING I LOVE THE MOST ABOUT MY CAREER

The thing I love the most about being a writer is that it allows me to live and work where I please. As long as I have an internet connection, I'm good to go.

I've worked everywhere from a hotel room in Barcelona, Spain; to a cafe in Stockholm, Sweden; to a farm house in Cordoba, Argentina. As far as work, I feel like the luckiest girl alive most days.

THE THING I LOVE THE MOST ABOUT BEING AN EBOOK WRITER/SELF PUBLISHER

In a phrase, "income stability." As long as I can write (ie, produce new products), I can make a living. How much I earn is entirely up to me. Thanks to places like Amazon, you don't have to be famous to make a living as a writer.

RUNNING, RUNNING, RUNNING!

I'm also a marathon runner. I've completed two full and 8 half marathons as of December 2014. I'm always training for the next one!

LIFE PHILOSOPHY

Just do it! (As a runner, of course Nike's philosophy fits who I am :-)).
