The author of this book was born a little brown girl in West Palm Beach, Florida in the intense year of 1981. Anjinette Hudson was an awkward yet intelligent child who found comfort in books and words. Through books and poetry as early as elementary school she received confidence through the worlds and words of Langston Hughes, Sonia Sanchez, Judy Blume, Maya Angelou, June Jordan, Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, and so many more. Although, the author is no longer a child at the age of 38 currently she resides in Queens, NY.  She wants to share characters, friends, and stories that will engage and comfort a new generation of creatives, readers, friends, and leaders.
