Waka T. Brown is a middle grade novelist and screenwriter. Her debut memoir While I Was Away (2021) and her second novel Dream, Annie, Dream (2022) are through HarperCollins / Quill Tree Books.
When you write something and present it to the world, it’s exciting. It might feel like a dream come true. But what they don’t tell you is that it’s also terrifying.
As a debut author, I didn’t know what to expect. Hopefully my road leading to publication will help readers who are on a similar journey, or who will be soon.
I knew about 12 pt. Courier font, hiding exposition, keeping descriptions short ... but I had no idea how to write a middle grade memoir.
