Author, and Diabetes Advocate Mutima K. Jackson-Anderson stands modest in confidence yet, courageous in character.
Atlanta, Georgia born and raised, Mutima begun expressing her thoughts through writing at an early age. Wanting to follow in the footsteps of her mother; who was a freelance writer for the Atlanta Inquirer, Mutima begun to write poems and short stories- which led her to journey into the literary world by writing her debut novel, the must-read, successful selling, "Painting the Perfect Picture", a thought-provoking story about a woman’s struggle to endure unexpected detours in life.

Mutima is also the Founder, President and Executive Officer at Ruby A. Neeson Diabetes Awareness Foundation, Inc., a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization.
The mission of Ruby A. Neeson Diabetes Awareness, Foundation, Inc. is to aid families affected by diabetes. The Georgia-based community outreach organization is named in honor of her late mother who passed away from diabetes complications.
As a diabetes and healthcare advocate, Mutima promotes awareness of diabetes health and wellness in many aspects of her life, including all of her written works.
The sensitive, stimulating story-line of her novel, "Bad Blood", deals with issues of healthcare disparities, as well as medical corruption, aging adult abuse, and obesity to name a few.
Mutima is the creator, executive producer, and the head writer of, "The Many Faces of One Vision", a health documentary, focusing on diabetes and heart disease. The documentary will feature an ensemble of individuals disproportionately affected by diabetes.
"The Many Faces of One Vision" is scheduled to debut in the winter of 2016.
When she is not writing, or raising awareness of chronic diseases, Mutima enjoys reading, visiting art galleries, special moments with her friends, traveling and spending time with her husband, George.
Mutima’s favorite philosophy quote is - “I think therefore I am”.
