My work focuses on the intersections of language, myth and music.


As a novelist, I explore how race is constructed, deconstructed and policed around the world. After writing for Issa Rae Productions and being shortlisted for Chimamanda Adichie’s Farafina Trust, I co-authored a project on James Baldwin with Duke professor Dr. Adam Hollowell. My first book, a biography of Venus and Serena Williams, is forthcoming with Macmillan. I'm currently signed by Janklow & Nesbit to write a novel about the dispossession of the Cherokee Freedmen.
