PUTTIN’ IN WORK: Memphis author Genisha Morton relishes her rise as a writer as she prepares for relaunch of Bleu Olive April 15
As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations, before him whom he believed, even God, Who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. (Romans 4:17 KJV)
AND IT CAME TO PASS
Genisha Morton crossed paths with Tammie Polk approximately four years ago.
Undoubtedly, she truly thank God for her, particularly how Polk has helped enrich and shape her life.
“It wasn’t until 2018 when I met Tammie Polk that things began to shift into being what I said I was going to be,” Morton told Making Headline News this week.
A Mid-South-area businesswoman, Morton is alluding specifically to how Polk strategically aided her in discovering her purpose as an accomplished author.
“I have always felt that I was supposed to be an author and would always go into bookstores, declaring my books would be sold in them,” Morton recalls. “The only problem was I wasn’t writing anything. I made an attempt in 2011.”

Still, after witnessing her rise as an author endure occasional standstills, Morton was destined to make her long-awaited dream a reality.
Mission accomplished for the brilliantly gifted author.
For Morton, a native of Manhattan, New York who resides in Memphis, her quest for becoming a resourceful author began a little more than a decade ago. According to the writer, she has composed somewhere in the neighborhood of 150 books, including the following notable written works:
- The Commons
- Pete And Repeat
- The Community
- She Never Saw It Coming
- She Broke His Heart
- Always Open: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
- My Journey Through the Slayers
- The Other Side of Munchausens: My Addiction To Depression
- The Man Who Loved Yellow
- What Happened To Me
- Count It All Joy: Shift Your Focus
- Count It All Joy: Be Consistent
- Count It All Joy: Choose Your Words Wisely and,
- Crime Lot
Said Morton of her assortment of books that, by all accounts, are as good as advertised: “If I don’t tell my story, who will? I also began to wonder about the people who needed to hear my story…and what if I missed them? I don’t want to know that I could’ve been the story that saved someone’s life and missed them because I was silent. Writing has also helped me heal from the things that were holding me back and tormenting me from my past.”
Much to her delight, Gordon certainly seems well on her way to making more immeasurable strides as an author. Gordon has announced the highly-anticipated relaunch of Bleu Olive, her featured business endeavor, will take place at Polk’s Professionally Sassy, LLC.

Also, Morton announced forthcoming book signings in New Jersey the first week in May at Source of Knowledge Bookstore. Plans for other book signings are currently in the works and “are soon to be announced,” she said.
“One message is about family secrets or hiding behind lies,” Morton said of her assortment of books. “They only lay dormant for so long before they expose the truth and create chaos that makes it hard for any advancement. I also have a message of forgiveness and how important it is to create an atmosphere of healing. One of the other main messages is you reap what you sow, and it’s important to do the best you can and not to have to say you’re sorry because, being sorry without changed behavior, changes nothing.”
