Her given name was Colleen Thompson but was dubbed the nickname Truth by her teachers and schoolmates after being the lead in a play entitled, A Woman Called Truth; depicting the life of the former slave and abolitionist, Sojourner Truth.
Jamaican born, T.R.U.T.H. immigrated to the United States at the age of ten and has since resided in Florida.
Though writing had always been her passion, she had never sought to publish. Still, she continued to create a myriad of poems, musical lyrics, monologues, and narratives. It was not until the day she came across a woman she now calls her guardian angel, that she was inspired to write her memoirs and pursue her life-long dream of being a published author.
She has since changed her name to reflect her rebirth of spirit, gratitude for her guardian angel, and her new path to self-purpose.
Her upcoming work include
Quoetry: Words of Truth
Ballad of a Slave: The Ugly Truth
In every person’s life lives a story, every story,
a lesson—and every lesson—a journey.
