Author M. LaVora Perry makes her home in East Cleveland, Ohio. She grew up in the city of Cleveland and graduated from Cleveland State University's College of Education. In 1995 LaVora became American Greetings'(r) (AG's) first African- American greeting card writer. Since then, her words have appeared on gift items in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia, New Zealand and in Spanish translation in Mexico. While at AG, LaVora received Creative Excellence awards 2 years in a row (1999 and 2000).

In 2003 LaVora published her first the children's book, "Taneesha's Treasures of the Heart." She wrote the story of two East Cleveland girls facing a bullying child, while remembering the time she and her classmate were bullied in elementary school. Today she tries to be courageous and caring like the main character, Taneesha Bey Ross. A review of "Taneesha's Treasures of the Heart" in the "Midwest Book Review" states, "The power of a core theme of this inspirational and highly recommended story." "Taneesha's Treasures of the Heart" was the only children's story selected to have an excerpt performed onstage in the Poets' & Writers' League of Greater Cleveland's Writers & Their Friends literary showcase at the Cleveland Playhouse in May, 2004.

LaVora enjoys spending time with her husband, Cedric Richardson, and their three children. She also likes keeping in touch with her stepchildren, parents, sister, brothers, nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
