The Author

B orn in Post-Prohibition rural Louisiana Bernadene High Coleman grew up in Los Angeles where she continued her education at Loyola Marymount and California State LA.

Bernadene High Coleman  Ever with a passion for books and reading, she set out to chronicle the events she first heard about in her youth; her first published work in the form of a novel, "Mama Rose", which through word of mouth, sold thousands of copies.

With a first collection of poems entitled, "Listen My Children", along with a follow-up second novel, "I Leave You My Dreams" this writer has counted "Beyond Color" as the fourth of her titles authored.

Ms. Coleman, widow, mother, and grandmother of eight, currently resides in California where she continues to write and speak.

I was made to realize that I am responsible for letting the world know about my work. It is up to them to interact with it; if I do not share it, if I don’t put it out there, then no one even has a choice of whether or not they want to read it.
