I was finally able to announce my debut Young Adult book, There's No Way I'd Die First, and it's a Horror-Comedy!
This was such a fun story to write. It toggles between funny and spooky with a bit of social satire and a smidge of romance thrown in for good measure. It's everything I love!
Specifically it's about a teen horror movie fan who's used to used to seeing Black people in stereotypical roles in horror movies where the survival odds are usually low. She's knows exactly what she'd do if she ever found herself in a horror movie situation, but when a killer clown hijacks her Fright Night party for a night of revenge, things don't go exactly as she imagined...
I'm super excited to be working with Delacorte Press on this story. The book isn't out until Fall 2023 but I'll be sharing exciting updates until then!
