An authority figure, Mrs. Dinah Bradley is a tell-it-like-it-is therapist turned self-help author. Her provocative book teaches women how to rediscover the love within. But what lies within Dinah are nightmares and faulty memories. Dinah chooses to focus on her promising career instead of listening to the little voice telling her something is wrong.

Afraid of the unknown and afraid of the truth, Dinah must choose between who she was and who she wants to be.

As a licensed social worker, she aims to educate, advocate, and push for individuals to look within because, according to her, “It’s one thing to logically know something, it’s another to feel connected. I believe when we feel connected to self and others, only then can we consistently do better.” Out of her background in social work, and her passion for writing, Brandi Janai wrote Felonopoly
- a screenplay sharing the struggle and hope of a married couple impacted by the criminal justice system.

As a novelist, she recently released Hidden
and has a slate of books pending: I Am Sin, Sometimes It’s Love
