About The Writer

I love all forms of art

but writing is my passion!

Wanna know a secret? Before I started Nia’s Piece I never shared anything I wrote. I was shy and afraid of how my work would be received. My fear blocked my creativity and eventually I stopped writing. Boy, was I miserable. My lowest point had to be early 2008 when while moving into my new apartment I threw away my old journals. I know, terrible right? I was so angry with myself. I had allowed my fear to control something I loved to do. Writing was a part of me. By the end of 2008 I picked up my pen.

I thought starting a blog would be an excellent way to keep in touch with my family and friends. A blog would compell me to share my work. And I couldn’t help but notice how few personal blogs there were in the blogosphere, especially those about life & relationships from the perspective of a woman in her thirties.

I wanted my blog to be a positive space, a blog of substance…strictly a “no fluff zone” with vivid, feel good, thought-provoking words. And with my first post in January 2009, I christened my baby “Nia’s Piece.”

People ask me whether “Nia” is my nickname. It’s isn’t. The word “Nia” in Swahili means “Purpose.” And “Piece”, can either be a literary composition or the expression of one’s opinion. For me, Nia’s Piece isn’t just a blog, it’s about finding your voice, realizing your purpose & pursuing your passion…fearlessly!

I would love to hear from you! Has a Piece I’ve written inspired you, provoked-thought or brightened your day? Tell me about it! Are there any topics you’d like to see me cover? LET ME KNOW! Send me an email at or leave me a comment! xoxo/Nay
