Ebony Lynn Mudd writes picture books and novels for underrepresented kids who don’t see themselves in the media.
She is intentional about the diversity on her son’s bookshelf, and now she writes to contribute to the diversity in children’s literature. Ebony spends her time fighting fiercely against inequalities, toxic masculinity, and gender stereotypes.
As a former professional dancer and current owner of a tuition-free dance company, she is a bridge for underprivileged kids that hope to work in the arts. She appreciates the creative freedom that choreographing to a song gives her and often compares it to creating a story from a blank page.
Her other interests include restaurants with all-you-can-eat sushi, quoting Phoebe from FRIENDS, and eating anything edible that she didn’t have to cook.
She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and active in many parts of the kidlit community.
