Check out my recent interview in the Dallas Morning News. Here’s a brief snippet:
After 15 years, dozens of novels and numerous awards, author Niobia Bryant is trying something new.

“What I love about her is that she’s not perfect,” she stated during a recent phone interview from her South Carolina home. “Queen is strong, but still growing to better herself, so while she’s out there being a vigilante and trying to save a little piece of the world, there’s a part of her that also needs saving.
Cole adopts the “Queen” identity in order to infiltrate the vicious gang she holds responsible for the death of her teenage son.
