About the author

Gentamu (Jen) McKinney was born into politics, philanthropy and volunteerism. Being the daughter of the late Gene Allen
McKinney, a Black Panther member and civil rights activist, she began to follow in her father's footsteps by letting her voice be
heard to make changes in her community and abroad. In addition, Jen became a mental health advocate following her
mother's own battle with mental illness. In 2015 she founded AWARENESS AFTER DARK, a nonprofit organization that focuses
on erasing the stigma associated with mental health in the African-American community. Each July she hosts a mental health

event called LET'S GET MENTAL in recognition of minority mental health month. Jen also directed and produced an award-
winning documentary (LET'S GET MENTAL) that was featured at the Pan African Film Festival in Cannes, France. She recently
began designing trendy, fashion-forward apparel designed to put a positive image on the face of the stigma of mental health.
Jen, combining her love for travel and giving back, created Work-n-Play Co - a social responsibility company that combines
adventure and volunteerism. The company's motto is "Don't just see the world, Give Back to it". And in 2019, she released her
first co-authored E-book, Glambitious Guide to Win in 2019, that helps readers embrace the unknown channeling her personal
motto "Just Do It & Do It Scared".

Atmosphere Press logo Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
