She has had stories/articles published in Merced Sun Star, VoyageLA Magazine, IBPA’s Independent Magazine, and in other media. Her book Broccoli Chronicles has won three literary awards (National Indie Excellence Award, IndieFab Book of the Year Award, Moonbeam Children’s Book Award).

Of her time in the Writers’ Program, Taneeka says, “There were a few courses that helped me find my writing voice, but the mentorship with Lynn Hightower gave me the confidence I needed.”
