Meet the CEO/Editor-in-Chief: Vishnue M.
Vishnue was born and raised in Memphis, TN. She graduated from the University of Memphis with a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations, and later received a master’s degree in English Education from Union University in Jackson, TN.
Pen Name: China
A self-proclaimed “penhandler,” China has used her writing skills to create captivating lyrics for underground mixtapes, design brochures to promote musical groups, construct executive level bios for major companies and published authors, compose articles for company newsletters and digital magazines as well as script dialogue for small business commercials. Simply put, she has always had a way with words.
As a high school English teacher, China taught for many years before she realized she had a knack for pulling stories out of her students and colleagues and bringing them to life. With this talent in mind, she decided to take her writing and editing skills to another level, and Penhandler’s Ink Self-Publishing Consulting Firm (P.I.S.P.C.F.) was born. Through P.I.S.P.C.F., she motivates and shares her knowledge of content editing, character development, and plot execution, with burgeoning writers.
Under the Penhandler’s Ink umbrella, she has co-written three Best-Selling Urban Fiction Romance novels (Tangled in a Lover’s Web 1, 2, and 3... co-authored with B’Shone), two Urban Erotica stories (Room 69: Freaky Tales and Sex in the Dark... co-authored with B'Shone and a host of other amazing writers), and four solo Paranormal/Mystery and Women's Coming of Age novels (Piano Keys: It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, Mammie Dearest 1 and 2 (Released in eBook format ONLY on Amazon.com), and Lacy: Caviar to Collard Greens).
In addition to claiming the #1 spot nationally and internationally, several times on the Amazon top 100 eBook list, China never hesitates to use her company’s resources to help in her community. In the fall of 2020, she enlisted the help of five other independent authors to participate in a collaborative writing project; SISTA WORLD: Twisted Tales. The proceeds from this book were donated to a charity that worked to bring awareness and eradicate the existence of inequality in justice between men of color and women of color, in regard to police brutality.
Shortly after the release of all five books in the Tangled in a Lover's Web Series, her social media exploded with positive feedback. The consensus was that the book series would make an extraordinary TV series. With that in mind, China and B' Shone took the first book in the series and began writing the Tangled in a Lover's Web movie. The extraordinary tale of an interracial marriage that has entered the "for worse" season is set to be released in late fall 2023.
When China is not writing books or screenplays, she is training future authors and developing young minds in her role as a high school English teacher in Atlanta, GA. On the weekends, and during the summer, she enjoys spending time with her daughter and granddaughter in Nashville, TN.
