My Story

Latrina R. Graves McCarty, M.Ed., a published author and playwright, formerly taught English (creative writing, drama, journalism, and speech and debate); she received her undergraduate degree in broadcast journalism and speech communication from The University of Southern Mississippi and a Master of Education with the concentration in English from William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. She and her two children, Ana and Joshua, reside in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.


McCarty’s recent work, Olivia’s Journey (published by WestBow Press), tells a story of love, loss and finding a way to love again. The novel provides examples of strong female empowerment. It is McCarty’s hope that readers will relate to Olivia, and through that “grab their self-value, and they will embrace Olivia’s journey as their own personal journey.” Olivia’s Journey is available online at WestBow Press, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon. She also wrote the stage plays: Just a Little Sunshine, Only a Shadow, After the Rain, and Off the Court, which are also available on Amazon.


Off the Court debuts on stage Saturday, June 22 in Ocean Springs, Mississippi!
