My colleague and friend Bernetta Parson interviewed me for the December 6, 2021 Rise for Racial Justice Podcast, and I cannot be more thrilled. I got a chance to talk about the importance of YA lit for Black children, how I began writing YA, and what I’m reading currently. Please check it out!

Originally from the south side of Chicago, Gail currently lives in Maryland with three kiddos and a hubs. She writes young adult and adult fiction and has been known to go overboard with the cheesy snacks. She's got a lot of pet peeves, but the biggest one of all are jeans that cut off her circulation. Not a fun situation. When she's not writing stories and talking to the characters that live in her head, Gail teaches composition, literature, and creative writing at the University of Maryland, College Park.
