The Brain Behind It All...
"I began Cauzing Elevation in March 2007 with one goal. To provide multi-genre, thought provoking reads to everyone, but especially those who didn't already have a love or desire to read. My aim was to pen works that built up a love for reading, unlike the forced required reading that turned many of us away from wanting to read or dislike reading overall." 

That aim grew into a Mindset. To not just provide readers with works of my own, but to assist other writers in providing potential readers with the same. I give each client the same dedication to their work as I do my own. Cauzing Elevation is a "Mindset." If I'm not Cauzing Elevation I won't even bother."

    "I'm Amazing..." That pretty much sums it up and that's not being cocky. Everyone should feel they are amazing. You're amazing too and should remind yourself of it daily. Now, if you want to know more about me than what's already public, then you'll have to get my first book titled, "A Girl Named Job." After all, I'm not just beauty, I'm also brains and business minded.

"I write so what's in me won't one day die with me. I write so I can continue to live..." ~Marie Antionette
"It's a Mindset..."
 "I write the content I do because I want readers of all likes to know, those coming from an urban upbringing aren't limited to glorified street stories or tales of brokenness and one doesn't have to be a scholar to be great...

Marie Antionette & Dr. West, February 2011
 "Back in 2007, no one could have told me, and I couldn't have even told myself that one day, I'd write a collection of titles as a part of my life's journey and legacy. The only limits we have in life are those we impose on ourselves and the dreams we refuse to believe in."
   ~Marie Antionette
    "It all started with a name (Cauzing Elevation) and one book (A Girl Named Job) back in 2007. That one book grew into a catalogue of 10 plus one if you count the e-book, and that name grew into a brand.

A Girl Named Job 
A Girl Named Job is a “I can show you better than I an tell you,” but first let me “grow” thru the experiences I need to learn, so I can become who I need to become, candid memoir. entertaining piece of a naïve teen making all of the wrong decisions, a young woman trapped by her fears, mislead by blind love, betrayed by false loyalty, then rebirthed from the ash left by the flames which polished her in the process. What most think will ruin them, usually turns out to be a blessing in disguise. No matter what you’ve been thru, no matter what you’re going thru, your circumstances don’t define you. How you rise above them will.  
If you ever thought you couldn't bounce back from a hard fall or multiple ones. Think again. A Girl Named Job is a testimony of strength and making it to better days. Candid with no holds. Inspiring for all! ~Memoir

Baby I Don't Have It
Many parents, particularly ones in single parent homes, often feel they never do enough. Many children, raised in one parent homes, don't appreciate enough either. “Baby I Don't Have It” is an ode to parenting, be it single or dual. Ensuring our youth go further in life than ourselves isn't always easy but it is a must and it's doable. When we don't have a way we simply make one and by doing so, we add a little but more security to the success of our youth's future and as well as our own. - (True to Life)

VS. Sometimes a few words can hit someone with the same or greater impact as an entire book. Sometimes a few words can reshape someone’s outlook from despair to determined and from deprived to driven. Sometimes, most do not need the entire sermon. They just need the gentle or firm reminder of who they are, what they stand for, what is, and what isn’t a matter of their reality and progression.

The Big Pay Black
​I grew up Red & Black Attack. That's what I knew and I couldn't wait to get to "The High" so I could represent "The Town's" colors, that iconic T and that Tornado. It was a milestone for anyone growing up in Trenton. My oldest two sons grew up Red & Black too. The three of us represent the class of 1988, 2011 & 2019. My youngest in charge on the other hand represents Orange& Black, since our move to Hamilton in 2019 and so do many of my nieces and nephews. Hence, as I thought of ways to give back to the community and school that grew me and my oldest two, I couldn't leave out the community we are now becoming a part of. 

So, as my way of giving back to both communities and the futures of them, I will gift the 1st 50 high school students from either school, who meet the requirements on the flyer with their t-shirt, book or hoodie of choice, from the Cauzing Elevation website. You can represent Red and Black or Orange and Black, just keep your mindset on constantly Cauzing Elevation. 

Valid now thru the class of 2028!

I expect to gift 50 shirts and or books at the end of each semester. By the end of the semester year, I expect to gift 50 hoodies. Don't let me down. I'm counting on you! 
If you would like to sponsor t-shirts, books or hoodies for the qualifying students, send me a message and I'll let you know how.
