I am so proud to announce that my YA Contemporary Fantasy debut series has been bought by Simon Pulse/Simon Schuster and will be published! The first two books in the series are scheduled for Summer 2020 and Summer 2021, respectively. See the announcement below and you can add DESCENDANTS to your Goodreads list today!



    I’m so excited to announce that myΒ essay about growing up Black, female, and geeky will be featured in OUR STORIES, OUR VOICES: 21 YA Authors Get Real About Injustice, Empowerment, and Growing Up Female in America, an anthology edited by Amy Reed and published by Simon Pulse/Simon & Schuster for Fall 2018 release.

    Y’all, Amy Reed praised my essay, saying:


    I’ve continued to beΒ hauntedΒ by your words and your story…I loved your essay for so many reasons–the interplay of humor and seriousness, the vulnerability, the great writing. What I especially loved was the liberating power of art, how you found your voice and a sense of belonging in a creative community. That’s a theme that’s coming up a lot in this anthology, and such a powerful message for readers who are feeling lost or marginalized. There is room for everyone in art. There is so much hope in that.”

    — Amy Reed, author of THE NOWHERE GIRLS
