Meet the amazing Ndengo Gladys Mwilelo

Gladys and me…working through edits.

In my next middle grade novel, EACH OF US A UNIVERSE, readers will meet Calliope Scott and Rosine Kanambe. The character Rosine is a refugee from Democratic Republic of Congo.   For close to two years Ndengo Gladys Mwilelo gave me advice, read multiple manuscripts, and helped ensure that Rosine spoke her truth! I also had the honor of a lifetime in interviewing Gladys through StoryCorps. If you’d like to hear more about Gladys, and be truly inspired by her courage, persistence, and incredible optimism, check out our recording here:  STORYCORPS INTERVIEW OF NDENGO GLADYS MWILELO
