Gabrielle Sessoms was born in the city of Durham, North Carolina.  She’s one of four children and currently still resides in North Carolina with her husband, three loving dogs, and her mischievous yet also loving cat.  Gabrielle is a full-time bartender and freelance makeup artist.  She is the daughter of Michael Sessoms and fellow author Merrylyn Candelario.  While Gabrielle and her mother have two very different styles of writing, Gabrielle was inspired by her mother to complete the novel, You. Me. Three.  Majoring in English and Journalism throughout high school and college, she has always had an interest in writing.  It wasn't until a few years ago she found her influence for You. Me. Three.  Encouraged by her friends and family, Gabrielle felt the determination to be brave and unafraid to creatively express herself through writing and finish the novel.  Upon completion of the novel, Gabrielle has decided to take her long-time hobby of writing and turn it into a long time history of writing.  When she’s not writing steamy novels, Gabrielle enjoys rocking out to 70’s classic rock, laying out on the beach, and spending quality time with family, friends, and her fur children.
