100 words or less how would you describe your work?
I try to write with heart and honesty, to tell stories of the rich and varied lives of young people of colour.
100 words on less please share your thoughts on writers:
I cherish the writers in my life whose words and ideas encouraged critical thinking and meaningful action. Now more than ever, as some of us have access to a dizzying array of media resources (and very many of us don't), I think that writers who are not afraid to be thoughtful, to have a point of view, and to be human, are essential activists.
Thank you for allowing us to promote and support your work.
