Yvette Phillips was born and raised in Colleyville, a small rural town in the Island of Jamaica, West Indies. She is the oldest of eight children, including four boys and four girls, born to Edna and Dennis Duncan. Yvette is the wife of Ivan Phillips and the mother of Matthew Phillips.
As a child, Yvette had an exceptional love for reading and has always dreamed of writing a book. She attended Christian High School in Manchester. After graduation, she decided to relocate to Kingston for better opportunities. While in Kingston, she attended Rapid College of Commerce where she achieved certificates in Business Studies.
Yvette immigrated to the United States in 2000. She attended Monroe College and achieved her Associate degree in Business Management. In 2009, she drafted her first story, while working in the Communications field. After getting laid off from her job in October 2016, she used that opportunity to embrace her passion for writing and completed her story.
Yvette’s goal is to write children’s book that are whimsical, innocent, brave, and captures the beautiful mind of a child and their imagination. She published her first book entitled, The Tale of Princess Alicia, with Lauren Simone Publishing House. Her book launch was December 2018 at her home church in Bronx, NY.
Tale of Princess Alicia features a friendly, adventurous, and loving teen princess. When she faces danger, will she need to be rescued or is her determination enough to rescue herself? Only one way to find out, get a copy!
