Vanessa Riley, here.
You are powerful, even when you don't feel like a super hero. My goal is to embolden and encourage you through my novels which reclaim and reimagine the true lives of women who dared to dream, explore, and build.
I'm the author of Island Queen, A Good Morning America Buzz Pick, and the forthcoming Queen of Exiles and was recently named the 2023 Georgia Author of the Year Awards Literary Fiction Winner for Sister Mother Warrior. My works have been featured in the AJC, Washington Post, Entertainment Weekly, NPR, Publisher Weekly, and the New York Times.
