USA Today best-selling author Shelique Lize is now writing her books as Mikayla Symonett. Why the change? Over the last few years, I’ve been going through rough situations with my husband and it simply never got better. It only worsened to the point, I kind of stopped focusing on writing and withdrew from everyone and everything.

Now, we’ve split for the better and I feel like I can actually breathe. I needed a fresh start, especially since my author name: Shelique Lize, was his last name and I wanted to amend that. I have a new author name and exciting things planned for my new path heading into 2020.

I switched over my social media accounts to match my new author name, and my cover designer was so wonderful to go ahead and switch over all my covers as well. Now, my goal for 2020 is to reinstate my USA Today Bestselling title to Mikayla Symonett.

I can’t wait to see what will unfold and hopefully, you’ll follow me on my journey.
