[This episode was heavily edited and conducted over Skype, so please not audio variation.]

Jenn speaks with Imani Josey (The Blazing Star) about creating a realistic and mindful historical YA novel with Black protagonists, the inspiration from her pageant background for her short story "Crown," and her trajectory as a self-published and traditional published author with a mind for business.
