Lakeisha “Kei Land” Penland was born in 1987
in Illinois. In spite of all the difficulties in her life
she has managed to persevere and press towards her destiny. She is a Christian

teaching, motivating and encouraging others. A divorced mother of two amazing children, she acquired a degree in human and social services with focuses on children, mature adults, and people with developmental disabili- ties. She is also an entrepreneur of several businesses that make “basic into beautiful.”
Her first published work appeared in From Survivor to Stilettos. As a contributing author, she shared a personal event in her life to uplift women that are going through or coming out of similar circumstances. As an author, Kei wants to continue her concept of making basic, boring, or even bad into something beautiful in the lives of her readers. Her aim is to inspire, motivate, and encourage you to overcome all that life throws at you while helping you to view the negatives in life as a beautiful passing right. With Romans 8:28 in mind, Kei desires that her readers see everything–good or bad–as working for their good!
