Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why do you write/publish books?

I write for quirky black girls and those who need a little bit (or a lot) of a push to feel confident in themselves and to see themselves as the main characters of their own stories. The first novel I read written by a Black woman was Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison in 11th grade. Before then, I had never understood the depth and layers writing could contain and the endless meanings it could convey. As someone who didn't see themselves in the books they read growing up it is an honor to be a part of this generation of authors who are expanding this genre of black women's joy, black women's representations, and black women's realities. Although, everyone and anyone can enjoy my books, I have a special place in my heart for little girls who look like me, and who will meet similar obstacles along their life journeys.

2. Are children's books your favorite? Do you do any other types of writing?

Although I don't consider myself to fit inside of any particular genre, children's books are definitely the most fun. But, I specifically write what I need to hear and what I would have loved as a little girl. I believe that if you write the book you want to read, or need, you'll never be short of ideas and your words will touch those that need it the most. 

I am currently working on a graphic novel, a reiteration of The Fluffy Adventures of Fromo and a romance novel. I can't wait to share my work with you all!
