Who is Billie M/ Cook?

I am a Writer, Author, Workshop Facilitator, Lecturer, Local Public Historian/Researcher and Consultant – a woman with a lot of interests, passions and pursuits! A native and resident of Portsmouth, VA; proud graduate of Spelman College (BA,History) with a Master’s degree in College Student Personnel (BGSU, OH), I am a retired University Administrator (25+ years) with a commitment to encourage, uplift and motivate young women (‘tween, teens and young adults) to seek God in all that they do and strive to become.


Like so many, my writing career began while a “stay-at-home- Mom/ domestic engineer”, writing plays for a developing church drama ministry during the course of my husband, Keith’s first pastorate. Writing newspaper and magazine articles and attending and presenting at national writer’s and drama ministry conferences gave me a wealth of experiences and opportunities to further develop, broaden and fine tune my craft.
