About JJ Staples:
JJ began her writing career long before she realized she would become an author. At the time, writing poetry became a necessity, which was dictated by her emotions. She kept her writings secret and only shared them with a very few close friends and family. Many of the poems listed in her book were written twenty plus years ago. Although ‘Deflowered Lyric’ is her first published book, she is far from a novice.
She has written numerous reports, articles, business plans and the like for a 35-year career corporate job. She recalls a manager expressing to her that her writings were like reading a book. This was preparing her for this moment in time. She credits God for revealing her purpose. She believes everything that happened in her life was designed and orchestrated to manifest itself at this particular time. Stepping out on faith, she retired from her job to walk in her purpose as ordered by her heavenly father.
When asked, why she would give up the security of permanent employment for the uncertainty of self-employment. She smiles and replies, “God said so.” She further explains her purpose is more than writing. “This is a movement to save our children from sexual abuse.
I want to educate children and adults about this once forbidden subject that seems to be continually swept under the rug
Along with her corporate career, she was also featured in several national television and radio commercials. Her sultry voice afforded her an opportunity to land a few voice over jobs in the Washington, DC area as well as National spots.
J. J. is a northern woman at heart but has fallen in love with the South. She was born in Buffalo, New York and raised in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania. She attended Frostburg State College in Frostburg, Maryland studying nursing. After changing her major to social work, she transferred to George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
After this, she married, birthed and raised two children and began her career until being offered a job promotion in Dallas, Texas. The warmer climate was her motivation to accept the transfer to the Great State of Texas. However, she remains a devoted Pittsburgh Steeler and Washington Redskins fan.
She is the proud mother of four adults, three boys and one girl of which two sons are from her blended family. She also shares her journey with as she describes, “Six perfect grandchildren.” Her prayer is that God will bless and protect them while she educates and helps to prepare them for life by passing on her faith and her own life experiences.
Walk on J. J. according to your purpose into your destiny. Those who have the pleasure of knowing you are positive that whatever you set your sights on, you will achieve. Having devoted almost 36 years to one company to help them fulfill their goals, it is about time you put the energy, compassion and knowledge into you own dreams and your PURPOSE!
Please feel free to contact J. J. for speaking engagements, book signings, child sexual abuse insight, the many different ways you can assist her with ‘saving our children’ or just to share your thoughts about ‘Deflowered Lyric’. She would love for you to be an integral part of her life’s journey to fulfilling her purpose and also perhaps yours. God bless you.

You’re Invited To Our Chapter Party…
Will someone save our children from the abuse that lies within?
Within the debts of darkness
That’s covenant and sin.
Our children are being raped, molested, and killed
Sometimes by folks they call kin >
23% of sexual assaults occur under the age of 18
Adults were the offenders in 60% of the sexual assaults
Adults were the offenders of children under the age of 12 years old
89% of children being sexually assaulted involved persons known to that child
I taught my child to be accountable
No sex before marriage;
Use a condom
And how it’s better to practice abstinence
