Constance R. Davis, affectionately known as “Ma Spice,” grew up in Detroit, Michigan. After high school, she attended Eastern Michigan University before graduating from the Michigan Paralegal Institute. In 1980, Anthony “Spice” Adams was born. In addition to being a single mother to her own son, Connie was also “Ma Spice” to several other young boys in the neighborhood. The stories of Anthony and his friends growing up together are the inspiration for this book and the many stories to follow. In 2003, Anthony was drafted by the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers and Connie continued to support her son as an NFL Mom. She is a veteran member of the Professional Football Players’ Mothers Association (PFPMA) and an active member of The Second Ebenezer Church, where she currently teaches in the New Membership Ministry. When she is not at church or in the kitchen cooking, you can find Connie being an awesome grandma to her grandchildren, great nieces, and nephews. And, of course, Ma Spice continues to dedicate herself to supporting and encouraging the local youth.
