On my twitter feed, I’m getting a lot of #weneeddiversebooks tweets and I can’t tell you how excited I am about them. My hubby is mixed and so are my children and while they look like they are Caucasian, they are a mixture of African-American, Creole, Norwegian, Swedish, and English. I love my hubby’s family and when I met them, they dispelled most of the stereotypes I’d ever read or saw on television. That is why my current WIP is about an African American college student in Detroit. I want my in-laws, children, and eventually, grandchildren to have books they can relate to and be able to enjoy the story, just like white people. My hope is that one day, there will be more authors out there like me.
