Her debut novel, Coffee & Cream, is publishing in 2016. LaKesa Cox lives in a suburb of Richmond, VA with her husband and three children. Dubbed the "Countess of Urban Drama" by none other than the Queen of Hip Hop Lit, Ms. Nikki Turner, LaKesa is truly a drama queen who enjoys stirring up trouble on paper.
