About the Author

Shannon Luders-Manuel is a mixed race scholar and writer with a background in such diverse areas as rhetoric, linguistics and creative writing. She received her Bachelor's Degree in English from Southern Oregon University and her Masters in English from University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Her thesis was titled: "'I am on the Coloured Side': The Roles of the White Suitor and the Black Mother in the Tragic Mulatta Narrative."

Bryony Sutherland's writing career began as the co-author of a number of biographies with Lucy

Together they have been called "professional storytellers" by The Guardian, "very professional" by Film Review, "immensely readable" by The Beat Goes On, "detailed" by Sunday Express and "insightful" by OK! Magazine. She has written extensively for web and print, for clients ranging from international celebrities to Fortune 100 companies.

Following twenty years in corporate America, in 2008 Sarah and her husband gave up their jobs to relocate from California to Puerto Rico to be self- sustaining organic farmers. Within a year, it was evident one of them needed to return to work. Dreading the notion of commuting and the o ce politics so common in the corporate world, Sarah opted to live out her life-long dream of becoming a writer. A week after hanging her "Writer for hire" sign out, Sarah landed multiple jobs. Within three months, she had to hire more writers.

Six years later Sarah is the CEO of a content marketing agency. In December 2015 Sarah founded Coquí Press, a publishing company whose mission is to give a voice to those whose views run counter to the mainstream or whose voices have been silenced because of race, gender and/or sexual orientation. In May 2016 she co-launched Multiracial Media, a platform of artistic expression for those in the multiracial community.
