Writer Accountability Program Partner
"I launched H.E.R. Legacy as the accumulation of my years in the marketing and communications industry layered with my experience and love of published creative writings. In both worlds, I understand the need for a strong internal drive towards excellence and authenticity, and the value of a community that is unwavering in encouragement and accountability.
This is the community that I built within the H.E.R. Legacy team. I've been honored and blessed to form a network of writers, editors, and creatives who share my passion for elevating new voices and words to a world that is yearning to look and listen.
For me and my team, this is not a job. It's a journey. We are passionate about what we do. Passion was once viewed as a mediocre trait, even at times as a weakness, but passion has always powered progress.
Our legacy is bound to yours and together we will live our purpose."
Niccole Coleman is known for many things, like her pen name DNC or her love of all things hip hop, seafood, and beach related, but what she’s known most for is living her purpose—engaging, empowering, and testifying through words.
The St. Louis native has over 15 years in the ever-evolving marketing and communication industry delivering messages about products, services, and programs across research and education realms. Her work was awarded the UPCEA Strategic Marketing Plan Award and was the Gold winner at the International MarCom Awards for her work at Georgia Tech. Her love for storytelling is visible across projects.
And that love continues as a passion pusher; creating empowering and sensual stories that speak to women’s various pivotal moments in life. Under her pen name DNC, she has published four books including Untraditional: A Collection of Passion-Fy Short Stories which reached Amazon's African American Erotica Best Seller's list. Two of her Young Adult shorts have been picked up by anthologies. Creativity and testimonies continue to flow through her keyboard as the creator and a contributor of H.E.R. Crisis—a women empowerment blog where other women come to share their journey through life’s obstacles.
A believer, a mom, a wife, a professional, and a creative are the hats she wears proudly.
