I HAVE A BOOK DEAL WITH SCHOLASTIC! 🤯 After 8 months of waiting I can finally scream it out loud! Reading Scholastic books inspired me to become a writer–from The Babysitters' Club, Goosebumps and Animorphs when I was younger, to some of my favourite series like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games. Now my story, set in Barbados, starring a Bajan girl and full of Caribbean folklore will be a part of this same fantastic publishing family! I couldn't be more thrilled. #caribbeanwriters #writersofinstagram
