About the Author

Best friends Melissa Cummings-Quarry and Natalie A. Carter met at secondary school in North-East London and bonded over their shared love of books.

Years later, Melissa, now a business development manager, and Natalie, a real estate lawyer, decided to channel that passion for reading and form the Black Girls' Book Club, a literature and social events platform that celebrates literature by Black female writers.

Black Girls' Book Club has been featured in media such as: Vogue, Stylist, BBC Radio, Buzzfeed, The Metro, gal-dem, Pride and more.

Melissa and Natalie were named as two of The Bookseller's Rising Stars of 2019.
