My was inspired by a speech delivered on campus by author Alex Haley, and sought to work with him. Impressed by My's drive and talent, Alex Haley gave her a major assignment--to assist him in writing the remaining two-thirds of a book that was long overdue to his publisher. Within a matter of months together they completed the work and that book, Roots: The Saga of An American Family, catapulted Alex Haley to international fame. My and Alex married in 1977, and over the years collaborated on many projects, including the miniseries Roots: The Next Generation. After Alex's death, My Haley immersed herself in writing pieces based upon her growing up with her grandmother, other novels, and many screenplays for feature film and TV. My lives with her partner in Las Vegas where she writes, explores natural health solutions, enjoys cooking and searching out organic foods. She has fun with her extended family in Arizona whenever possible. She also devotes time to developing future projects including an online magazine, a video game, a line of fashionable kufis, children's books, and cookbooks-all while writing new novels.
