Kenya D. Williamson is a verse novel and short fiction author, screenwriter (TV, film and the web), actress and poet from Levittown, Pennsylvania. After several years of acting -- and performing in dozens of TV shows, films and commercials -- she returned to her writing roots, studying screenwriting and more firmly embracing her loves of fiction and poetry.

Kenya wrote "Depth of Focus: A Novel" and "Depth of Focus: The Stanzas." Verse novels, both books tell the same story of a young woman's quest for independence, love, career success and the healing of her broken family. But, one version of the book ("The Stanzas") is broken into the poetry/rhythm she heard when she wrote the original manuscript. Currently living in Los Angeles, she's writ

I've been spending a lot of time wondering exactly what I have to offer visitors to this blog. I'd love for this space to always be creative and informative – for readers to leave with knowledge or inspiration that spurs them on to further success, wealth, happiness or self-discovery. Alas, for better or worse, I've embraced this place is mostly my playground and a source of entertainment. -- Read more of this blog post »

Description: Danni's hiding a complicated past and keeping people at arm's length for her mental, emotional and material survival — a typical day for the aspiring photographer who trusts her world would fall apart if she were to ever lose what appeared like control. While her mother, sister, lover and friends demand more of her time and allegiance, Danni’s father is too busy with his new family to really pay any attention. And Danni’s trying not to hold a grudge. Waiting tables at the restaurant stinks — with the exception of seeing her best friend. She's not in school because she can’t afford tuition. Danni rarely takes pictures — one of the few habits which brings her peace. And her mother's intermittently suicidal. If that's not enough, Danni fears she must be falling in love — something she swore she'd never do. And as another dreaded birthday approaches, facing the loved ones she's abandoned — or watched run from her — seems unavoidable. Depth of Focus tells the story of a young woman’s quest for independence and career success while balancing relationships with her family, friends and lover. Struggling to understand, obscure or articulate their hopes, fears, love, pain and regrets, some turn to deception to attain their desires while others reveal the truth.
Siblings & Other Torture Devices (Excerpt) (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 15, 2011 09:29PM
Description: After her fiancé dumps her, carefree Kelly Hicks decides she'll be a lot more like her sister – cool, calculating and a lot more discerning as to whom she gives her heart. But, the best friend who already loves her isn't crazy about the new makeover. Kelly always knew her older sister connived to get most everything she had. But, on paper, Allison's life was perfect. She had the career, a house and a family. So, when Kelly's long-devoted boyfriend dumps her via voicemail, she starts wondering if her sister isn’t onto something. Chasing a too-suave playboy, Kelly battles frizzy hair, her sister's insults, an inconsiderate roommate, an insatiable craving for carbs, a co-worker she's sure is after her job and mixed feelings for the best friend who suddenly wants to be holding her instead of one of his typically wafer-thin, model clients. So, with her love life, mortgage payment, friendships, career and dress size on the line, Kelly faces off with all her foes -- related and not -- and discovers the freedom of following her heart. Now, if she could only find the right conditioner…
Windmills (Excerpt) (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 15, 2011 09:28PM
Description: All Kate Morrow thinks she wants is to play music and get married. But, not wanting to be alone is keeping Kate in a dead-end relationship that might only end with her death. Kate’s memories of her father are fuzzy, at best. Her parents argued. He left. And she’s been waiting for his return ever since. But, while Kate's chances for a reunion grow slimmer with every passing year, she decides if he won’t come to her, she’ll go to him. Tracking down a little-known traveling musician isn't easy, but neither is walking down the aisle alone. Alex might not be perfect. But, he's the man Kate wants to marry. Even when he's jealous and angry, Kate knows he still loves her. And even when she hears the rumors, she knows he's still faithful...or at least, she used to. The safe haven her mother created can't protect Kate as her memories return and her lover betrays her. And while Kate chooses reality over long-held fantasies, she must not only survive the violent consequences, but defend the people who stood beside her, all along.
