Dominique Richardson is a Lebanese-Jamaican author and CPA who now uses her number-crunching excel skills to plot her stories. She is the Executive Director of YA by the Bay, a nonprofit young adult reading and leadership festival she cofounded, dedicated to inspiring teens to “be the author of your own life.” She is also the Young Adult columnist for DIY MFA, a writing website teaching authors how to write more, write better, and write smarter. She spends her free time passing on her love of unicorns to her twin boys, running in the Florida heat, and drinking all the coffee. Raised between Jamaica and the United States, her biracial heritage finds a home in her books. She now lives in Tampa, Florida with her family.
