Wondering about diversity and what it really means.
What means for us authors.
Explore. Build our own community. Find alternatives. Because publishing isn’t going to change overnight.

I am not what anyone would consider a poster child for diversity. Why, because I’m an white non-hispanic. But my stories do not center around a monoculture of blonde-blue eyed-Barbie types. My characters run the full gamut of class, culture, religion, and ethnicity. I want my stories to represent the world around me. A world full of vibrant people who cannot be pegged down to stereotypes. However, I feel that as soon as people see a picture of me or know I am white American that my voice is lost. I want diverse books too.
