About F. Renee Hamilton
F. (Fallon) Renee Hamilton, is an attorney, author and speaker living in Houston, Texas. Her interests include promoting literacy amongst people of color, the power of word usage/affirmation/manifestation and financial empowerment. She is a graduate of Southern University and A&M College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and obtained her juris doctorate degree from the Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University. When she is not helping clients clear their criminal records, she is volunteering in the community, spending time with friends and family and reading books from her ever growing “to be read” list. Her passions include using words as a catalyst for healing and show-casing vulnerability through poetry and storytelling as a means of empowerment.
She is the author of “An Ode” and co-author of Superwoman Survival Stories. Her first book (entitled An Ode…) is a heartfelt collection of poetry that speaks to the ebbs and flows of relationships past and present. This collection of poetry illustrates her use of words as a powerful means of self-care and healing. Her writing in this collection has been described as “authentic, raw and real” and resonates with audiences of all ages & walks of life. It was not until after her book debuted as a number one best-selling book in African American poetry on Amazon that she realized the healing power of her words. She hopes that her book not only creates a new generation of poetry lovers, but also serves as proof that there is truly power in the use of words
