About the author (2010)

Get a Man, Keep a Man" could not have been a more appropriate title for the first book written by this phenomenal author, singer, songwriter and fitness trainer. The inspiration behind this incredible work, no doubt, was birthed from extensive experience. A native of Houston, TX, Shei Atkins married her childhood sweetheart, Drathoven, (who is also her musical producer) at the tender age of nineteen. These two soul mates are the "apples of each other's eyes" and are currently enjoying an almost nine-year run of marriage going forward. After releasing three independent albums on a national scale, and having been a featured vocalist on the Grammy-nominated compilation released a few years ago, the twinkle behind Shei Atkins' star certainly shows no signs of fading. Shei has worked in the recording studio with industry giant, Beyonce' Knowles, and the likes of platinum-selling rap artists, Lil Flip, Paul Wall and Chamillionaire. She has also traveled the United States and abroad while sharing the spotlight with such notables as Mary J. Blige, Mary Mary, J. Moss, Kirk Franklin, Avant, Tonex, Fred Hammond, Tank, Mario, Lil Mama, B5, Trey Songs and even an international European tour with the Grammy Award-winning Kelly Rowland. While it soon became obvious that National Recording Artist, Shei Atkins, was a worthwhile asset to all of these endeavors, the demand for her electrifying, yet warm presentation, became more and more in-demand and Shei even went on to be featured in one of America's largest publications, VIBE Magazine. The social networking sites quickly climbed from buzz to ring regarding Shei's honesty and transparency about love, life experiences and relationships mixed with healing and faith, all themes in her music which have led to her current fame. In response, young women from all over began to reach out to her in pursuit of answers and solutions to the everyday issues of life. Using her heartfelt earnestness, Shei began speaking outside of her musical elements and has since traveled as a motivational speaker and formed an inner-city youth group named "Shei's Girlz." "A Heart for the People" definitely describes her in more ways than one. While balancing an already busy recording and touring schedule, Shei, the young woman of "many hats," yet managed to add "fitness trainer" to her growing list of titles. She works well with training clients for a healthier lifestyle, physically, mentally and spiritually. Shei is an all-around, down-to-earth individual whose light has touched masses around the world. Many of the quotes from this book have already helped many in passing, and the power of fusing them all together for this composition is bound to create a dynamite explosion.
