S3 E5: Alechia Dow & Don’t Ever Lick Your Checks

Episode Description: 

This week, Claribel and Kat talk about who to follow on social media to learn more about the industry and writing as well as how to discuss authentic representation with your writer friends or as a sensitivity reader. Then they interview debut sci-fi author Alechia Dow on what it was like writing her amazing novel The Sound of Stars, Debuting while living abroad, and her amazing booky cookies!

Bio: 

Alechia Dow is a former pastry chef, food critic, culinary teacher, and Youth Services librarian. When not writing YA sci-fi featuring determined black girls (like herself), you can find her having epic dance parties with her daughter, baking, mentoring, or taking teeny adventures around Europe.
