#LikeVanessa heads to the United Arab Emirates! Three presentations, lots of enthusiastic young readers!
I was honored to be the Keynote Speaker for NJSCBWI, where I also presented my workshop: Channel Your Inner Nonfiction Nerd.
Cool feature on this podcast, chatting up books and authenticity. Check it out here.
I'm happy to share that I've been asked to write a middle grade biography of Serena Williams, the G.O.A.T., publishing with Sterling in spring, 2019!
Honored to have received this award, which will aid in promo efforts for "Like Vanessa."
Super thrilled that my friend, Karyn Parsons, star of the iconic TV show, "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" and Founder of Sweet Blackberry, hosted my book launch!
