Tenesha L. Curtis: CEO, Indie Author, Book Nerd

Tenesha L. Curtis is the owner and operator of Volo Press Books, Writerwerx, and Pleascentries. She has been reading since before entering the public school system and writing fiction and nonfiction since elementary school. Her passion for helping people guided her to a career in psychotherapy for most of her adult life. After moving from her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky to Atlanta, Georgia in 2014, she started looking at writing as more than just a craft that she loved and took steps to turn that into her career as well. Volo Press has helped her blend her helpful nature with her love of writing by supporting people as they begin their writing projects and literary careers. Tenesha's latest personal projects are:

  • Manifest Agony: A murder mystery with fantastical elements scheduled for release in the early 2021.
  • The 12-Month Manuscript: A no-nonsense, realistic guide to getting your manuscript completed in a year or less—no matter how busy you are. Release in January of 2020.
