A wife and mother of two, Dallas, Texas native Shawanda Williams, professionally known as "N'Tyse," juggles her creative endeavors as a novelist-screenwriter-documentarian-film producer, and self-expressive artist. A former personal banker and portfolio officer for over 12 years, the multihyphenate enlaces her visceral storytelling between American female-centric dramas and psychological-suspense/crime thrillers. Her literary works have been highlighted in Library Journal, Black Expressions, USA Today, Don Diva Magazine, and Dallas Morning News. N'Tyse received her B.A. from Arizona State University with a multicultural, interdisciplinary concentration in Creative Writing and Film/Media Studies. She holds a certification from CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative) in Social & Behavioral Research in Human Subjects, with a current pursuit in her Master of Legal Studies at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law (ASU), with an emphasis in Intellectual Property Law. Her independent film efforts include the culturally sensitive documentary Beneath My Skin and Gutta Mamis: MBT, an urban-neo-noir women's-crime-drama—N'Tyse's first mass-distributed movie with Maverick Entertainment. Her proudest entrepreneurial undertaking and labor of love is C-Suite Literary Studio. Under her tutelage, over 100 books have been nurtured and ushered into both the indie and traditional marketplace. She is determined to blaze a trail for more book-to-film opportunities that include diversity on the screen and behind the scenes.
