TAMIKA NEWHOUSE

I'm a Texas girl hailing from Fort Worth and a national best selling author. I have a podcast series called Traces of Mika and nearly twenty fiction novels. I'm obsessed with pop-corn, starburst and coffee. I greet everyone with a country "howdy" and have been keepin' it real since 1986. Read on for the rest!

From teen mom to CEO by the age of twenty, Tamika Newhouse, the author of 17 novels, has landed on numerous best sellers’ lists and is the winner of 7 African American Literary Awards.

From teen mom to CEO by the age of twenty, Tamika Newhouse, the author of 17 novels, has landed on numerous best sellers’ lists and is the winner of 7 African American Literary Awards.

Only nine months after debuting her first novel in 2009, she landed a major publishing contract without an agent and went on to become the CEO of Delphine Publications. To date, she has published nearly 200 books, launched the careers of hundreds of writers, and produces the only entertainment award show for African American writers, called the AAMBC Literary Awards.

In 2010, she was inducted into Who’s Who in Black San Antonio. In 2011, her company Delphine Publications won an African American Literary Award for Best Anthology, and for the second time, Tamika won Self Published Author of the Year. The National Women in Business Association also nominated her for the 2011 Entrepreneurial Spirit Award. In 2013, she was honored with the Author of Distinction E. Lynn Harris Award.

She has quickly become the Shonda Rhimes in Black Publishing, due to her creative skills in discovering talent, her unique events that feature celebrities from across the nation, and being the creator of AAMBC, one of the most influential brands in the publishing industry. She has even served as associate producer and screenwriter to the 8 Ball and MJG bio-pic Comin Out Hard; with the goal of becoming a literary Rockstar still in her sights. Tamika presently tours the country speaking about her battle with mental illness and depression to fulfill her dreams, as well as teaching aspiring writers the publishing ropes. She resides in Atlanta with her children.

 

“I dare you to believe, in your gifts, talents, and passion, because if you do…I promise you at that point, there is nothing stopping you besides time, and work ethic.”
