ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Keisha Molby-Baez, also known as “Coco,” is a District Resource Personnel, poet, author, illustrator, motivational speaker, workshop facilitator, community activist, Passion Filled Writer, mother, wife, chef and veteran. Keisha worked within many different fields, which help mold her into the helpful, caring, loving and resourceful individual she is today.

Keisha found her purpose through creative writing and uses her poetry and workshops as a platform for community building and self-expressions. She is determined to share her life’s journey through her books and performances.
Keisha’s work has extended into her self-care journey, since the day she was diagnosed with multiple diseases. Being allergic to many medicines that can save or help her life and ease her pain, has made her realize how brave and strong she is and how far she has come. This encourages her to rise up each time she feels weighed down by all the negatives and daily setbacks. Keisha learned to register her pain as a pleasure, when she mastered mind over matter. This encouraged her to create the Passion Filled Writers: Mind Over Matter Edition.
This edition consists of workshop’s that teaches you how to build your own mental safe and how to turn your daily negatives into a life time of positives. Her workshops help different communities to communicate through writing, drawing and sharing their cultures. Keisha’s workshops also help others to express and collaborate their values, views, inner-feelings and perspectives with one another. Her workshops are intended to spark deep thoughts, ignite passion and spread Love.
Keisha’s most recent publication is her poetry book, Tears Laced with Fire, which is a collection of poems that are filled with the pain she has overcome, her inner most deep thoughts, feelings, perceptions and struggles. Uniquely each of her poems illustrate a true story, that will draw you into her emotions. She is currently working on her second poetry book, A Little Bit of Sugar, which is a collection of poems, that tells how she copes with all her trials, tribulations, health, the bits of sugar in her life and the love she sprinkles everywhere.
