Short Stories and Essays

I have a short story in A Tyranny of Petticoats, edited by Jessica Spotswood, along with fellow contributors J. Anderson Coats, Andrea Cremer, Y. S. Lee, Katherine Longshore, Marie Lu, Kekla Magoon, Marissa Meyer, Saundra Mitchell, Beth Revis, Caroline Richmond, Lindsay Smith, Jessica Spotswood, Robin Talley, and Leslye Walton. This is a fantastic representation of American girls doing amazing things throughout history. My story is about Bessie Coleman, the first black woman to earn an International Pilot’s License, and a young girl who finds inspiration in Bessie’s final flight (she’s the one dated 1926 in the beautiful artwork by Simini Blocker at left). Published by Candlewick Press in March 2016!
