China Ball’s first book, “Eleven Months of Hell” debuted in January 2008. She was invited by the NAACP to submit her novel for nomination for the 2008 NAACP Image Awards shortly after. Although she did not get selected to be a nominee, this invitation was a tremendous honor to her and gave her the courage to continue writing. Following her first novel, she wrote four additional novels. After the fifth novel, she was forced to take a hiatus due to life and health issues.
During China’s hiatus, she realizes that writing was her passion and decided it would be what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. Pursuing her passion she began writing her lifelong dream novel Sweet Angel Road” in 2016.
China was born in Richmond, Virginia and is a veteran of the U.S. Navy. She graduated from Norfolk State University with a Bachelors of Arts in Journalism and received a Master’s of Science in Public Administration. She is a proud lady of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and lives in the Washington, D.C. Metro area.
