About Me

Greetings! I am Yolanda M. Johnson-Bryant. Many know me as “That Literary Lady.” I have been asked how I got the name, so I will share the reason here. I have been an entrepreneur for over two decades and have been in the literary industry for nearly as long. For some reason, many found it hard to remember my name, but they knew my face. One day as I was going through the airport in Dallas, Texas, when someone shouted, “Hey, aren’t you that literary lady?” That name stuck with me and I claimed it.

Like a lot of you, I wear many hats. I am an author of women’s fiction and non-fiction, professional, self-help and children’s titles. I am also a freelance writer, columnist, publisher, editor, ghostwriter and radio host. In addition, I am a literary, social media, marketing and branding consultant. I am a literacy and community advocate, a volunteer, Toastmaster and professional speaker. In addition to community volunteer work, I conduct classes and workshops on writing, self-publishing, social media, marketing, branding relationship and health issues.

I have over twenty-five years experience in the entrepreneurial, literary, publishing, marketing and speaking industries. I received my Information Technology education from Denver Technical College, The University of Phoenix and Guildford Technical Community College.

Before diving full-time into business ownership, I worked in Corporate America for companies like Charles Schwab, Equifax Inc., RealAge Inc., JP Morgan Chase, HSBC Financial, Midland Credit Management and Triad Internal Medicine and Associates. I have experience in securities trading, credit reporting, insurance claims, medical terminology, business administration, collections, call centers, mortgage and auto loan delinquency, publishing, graphic design, marketing, branding, customer service, information technology and leadership.

Currently, I am semi-retired and the President and CEO of Bryant Consulting, Literary Wonders! and LW Media Group. In 2010, I founded, Sweethearts of the Triad, a community group that recognized and rewarded women entrepreneurs in the Piedmont-Triad area of North Carolina. Each year, we held a luncheon and awards banquet.

I am a freelance writer and a regular contributor Examiner.com and ChristianFictionOnlineMagazine.com. I am a former columnist for Ezine Articles, Women Entrepreneurs Leadership and Learning, RAWSISTAZ Literary and the Gatekeepers Post, a former division of the Huffington Post.

To date, I have published four novels, 27 Flagship Cove, Revelations, Circumstances and My Daughters Keeper. My literary division, Literary Wonders! presented and participated in Crimes of Passion: The Anthology and my touching story about health challenges and determination appeared in Jean Bailey Robor’s, She’s Got A Big But!: Get Past Your Excuses & Realize Your Dreams.

I am preparing for a very busy 2016. To kick off the year, 3737 Grim Avenue will release in January, and will be
