Carmen grew up attending New Garfield Baptist Church on the Southside of Indy and has always had a textual retention connection to the word, even though it was difficult to get.  She was not allowed to question the word, so her thoughts, feelings and questions left an unfulfilled, leaving her spiritually disconnected, so she came up with Nosey Nia to encourage children to explore their curiosity as it pertains to God and the word, and to leave a legacy for her daughter Ania.​​

Nosey Nia gives a brief exploration of a child’s view of the bible and answers many questions children may have. Carmen currently has three of the 5-book series released, to include “Nosey Nia and the Big Book” , “Nosey Nia – 7 Days”, "Nosey Nia - Man Oh Man" and her next book titled "Nate Counts To 10" is scheduled to be released fall 2022 which will be followed by 2 other kids book entitled “Tricky Colors” and "Pretty in Politics".
