About Amaleka Mccall:

Amaleka McCall  grew up fast watching the harsh streets of Brooklyn destroy many of her family members and friends.  After graduating high school with honors, Amaleka attended St. John’s University.  She went on to earn her baccalaureate degree in Criminal Justice and later earned her Masters in Public Administration from John Jay College of Criminal Justice.  Aptly dubbed the “intelligent hoodlum” by family and friends, Amaleka was always able to use her imagination and her education to create wonderful stories. The result was the birth of her first novel, A Twisted Tale of Karma (re-released as Myra in 2009).  She then went on to complete her urban mystery/crime thrillers: Hush, Price of Fame, Hard Candy, and Hard Candy Part 2.  Amaleka currently resides in Northern Virginia with her husband and three children. She is hard at work on her next novel, Cold Summer.
