ABOUT DEMI D
DEMI BRANDONInspiring Award-Winning Novelist
Here’s a bit about me. I was born in New Orleans and grew up in the suburbs west of the city. Prior to publishing my first book in 2001, I worked as a Case Manager at a children and family services corporation in Los Angeles, and in marketing and management at a Beverly Hills talent agency.
From 2005 to 2013, I was editor-in-chief of an Atlanta-based magazines, and another under my boutique publishing company. As editor of RawImage, an entertainment magazine that featured new stars and old legends, I interviewed a host of wonderful people. Among them Darrin Henson, Bern Nadette Stanis (Thelma-Good Times), June Rochelle (Gospel artist), Christian Keyes (The Preacher’s Son), KAS, Shirley Murdock, Etterlene DeBarge, Tommy Ford, Kevin Hall, Rodney Perry (Coming 2 America), Anthony Johnson (Friday), Kenya Moore (RHOA), TJ Hemphill (Perilous Times), Trenyce (American Idol), Shan Sparks (So You Think You Can Dance, You Got Served), Kamikaze (Crooked Lettaz), and many more.
I’ve produced several books ranging from original children’s stories to thriller novels such as Dark Echoes. Also ghostwrote everything from cookbooks to self-help books, press releases, speeches, film treatments, memoirs, and articles on various subjects. I’ve appeared on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, was featured in a variety of newspapers (Miami Herald, Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Sentinel, Greensboro News, etc.), emceed a popular hair show in Atlanta, produced two fashion shows in Washington D.C., and hosted segments of local TV shows.
In the mean and between time, I held positions as an Administrator for a children services, and front office manager and marketing director for a law firm.
Currently, I serve as co-founder and president of a historic preservation nonprofit organization, and operate a cookery blog, in which I share recipes, tips and advice.
I just completed book six to be released any day now fittingly titled Deep South Done: Beyond Gumbo.
I’m still that simple Southern Belle from the sea-marshes of Louisiana. Lucky too. I’ve been married to my best friend for 28 years, and we are proud parents of two incredible college grads on their own career paths. For now, we reside somewhere in our beloved
