Jewel Tyler always knew she would become an author and the love of reading inevitably directed her path.  A native of Washington, D.C., Jewel spent her younger years giving back to the community through a youth Arts organization she founded.  She left D.C. in 1989 to pursue a fashion design career in Los Angeles, California.

Jewel spent the last twenty years in several successful fields. In the corporate world, she used her technical expertise as a Computer Application Specialist. Her entrepreneurial spirit led her into several successful business ventures. She opened a chain of Exclusively Yours stores on the east and west coast – featuring handmade aromatherapy products, clothing and jewelry.  She continued her fashion design career in the entertainment world as an image consultant to new and existing recording artists which ultimately  opened doors for her to become the President of WOG (Word Of God) Records, Vice President to KNTD Publishing and a manager of several recording artists. Jewel is also interested in Naturopathic healing and obtained her Doctor of Naturopathy degree in 2015.

Through everything, Jewel never lost the dream to write and when the Lord called her in 2005 to put “pen to paper” regarding her walk with him, she answered  by penning  her intimate journey with God in the form of a book. The Skin I’m In – An Intimate Journey With God is the first in a series Jewel has published.

Jewel has received numerous certificates over the years as a guest lecturer for colleges and universities.  Her awards include nods from the late Mayor Tom Bradley, Michael Woo as well as Maxine Waters in Los Angeles, for her successful fashion design business and youth outreach programs.

Jewel currently resides in Dallas, Texas.  She attends Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship under the spiritual tutelage of Dr. Tony Evans.  In Los Angeles, California, she was a member of Faithful Central Bible Church under Dr. Kenneth Ulmer.
