I am working so hard to get the name Sapphire Spotlight on Talent out there and I can see it starting to pay off. Combining My writing with My love of promoting talent is bringing more people to the site daily. More people to the site mean more opportunities for people to see you and your talent when it’s YOUR turn to be here.
Our current Model of the Month Hannah Moore is not ONLY currently in New York to walk for New York Fashion week but she is also featured in the February issue of London LeBlanc Magazine that was released yesterday.
I also met a great photographer from Atlanta who’s work I just immediately fell in love with. I interviewed him for the magazine as well and it came out great.

My love of reading and writing goes back further than I can remember. There’s nothing I enjoy more than curling up in a corner and getting lost in someone’s story. Now I have the opportunity to actually interview and talk to writers who impress Me and I’m so excited. From city to city, coast to coast I want to shine the spotlight on those who impress me most. I will be bringing you interviews with some of the hottest established and up and coming writer that I run across as I blaze my own path of fame across the net. Let’s get it on!! Time to meet one of the greats………..
I read a book by this talented author, Tia L. Lincoln about a year and a half ago and was so touched by the story I reached out to her to tell her how it had affected me. She actually responded and was so humble and graceful. She told Me however that the story I read, “Junkie: A True Baltimore Story” was her sisters life story and suggested I read ” Child of Baltimore” which represented her life. I did and became even more enraptured with her writing. I then discovered that besides a rough Baltimore upbringing we had another thing in common, a fascination with true crime. I’m so excited to be able to introduce you to or give you a more in depth view of the talented author Tia L. Lincoln.
1. For those who aren’t familiar with you and your work can you tell us a little about yourself?
I am an author/writer who writes and publishes strictly true stories. With my publishing company Real Life Productions, I have 5 books out right now entitled: “Child of Baltimore”, “Junkie-A True
Baltimore Story, “The Lady Who Chained Her Baby To The Bed”, “Maryland’s Most Notorious Murders 1990-2008″, and “Until I Get Caught – The True Story of A Serial Rapist in Baltimore”.
2. You seemed to hit your mark with the true crime niche. What was it that encouraged you to start researching and documenting murders?
I’ve been fascinated by the crime of murder ever since I was a child and I’ve been keeping a mental database on murders for years. Growing up in west Baltimore in the early 80’s, I can remember as a child fantasizing about becoming a homicide detective or even a criminal psychologist. It’s the why aspect of a murder that interests me. What drives a person to kill? When my father was murdered in 1995, the only absolute way I could cope with his brutal murder was to get my thoughts out on paper. Who knew that writing about my life and his murder would turn into a career.
3. I hear You have a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice, where do you see yourself career wise in 5 years?
So far I just have an Associates Degree in the Science of Criminal Justice but I’m about 55 credits short of my Bachelors. Career wise in 5 years, I will have obtained my Bachelors, mastered Spanish, released at least 3 more books, released the film version of my 5th book, “Until I Get Caught- The True Story Of A Serial Rapist In Baltimore”, and completed courses in victim assistance training as well as an internship with the Innocence Project in Washington D.C.
