My Colorblind Rainbow

About the Author

27 years old, born and raised in the Washington D.C. area, writing has been a passion of mine since I was young, and I have loved reading for as long as I can remember. I started writing my first book, My Colorblind Rainbow at the age of 22 as a hobby, not actually pursuing a career in writing at the time. At 26, I decided to continue writing My Colorblind Rainbow, taking a leap of faith and following my dreams of self-publishing my first book. Fantasy, sci-fi, and teen dramas are my preference & I love writing for and about marginalized groups, races and genders, but my main goal though, is to reach out to young black women and be a part of that representation in literature that we love to see, but often don't.

About the Book

My Colorblind Rainbow

Darlene Jones is a fifteen-year-old African-American teenage girl living in Durham, North Carolina in 1940. She has an ordinary life, but things quickly become complicated as her sexual identity comes into question when she meets a White girl, nineteen-year-old Rose who isn't like any girl she's ever met before. My Colorblind Rainbow explores adolescent love and nonconformity, as these girls struggle with racial tension in the south. Their bond not only threatens their own lives, but friendships, and the relationships with their families as well.
