about the editor

Hi! I’m the creator behind she lit. My name is Kibby. That’s my Americanized nickname that happened to be a character’s name in Star Jones’ TV adaptation of her novel Satan’s Sisters loosely based on The View that became Daytime Divas on VH1 in 2017.

So you must’ve picked up, I love the intersection of literary entertainment. I started she lit to share my adventures in Los Angeles trying to become a published novelist. With that blog name, I converted this space to one that recognizes female authors and their works.

I’m on the journey of writing the book reports I never wrote as a Black girl educated in predominantly White schools where the language arts syllabi rarely reflected relatable authors for me. During the day, I’m a business journalist with reporting and editing experience examining diversity and inclusion.

As I build the personal library of my dreams, I’m writing posts focused on the hottest books on the market, the hottest book-to-screen projects, and the literary industry as I try to break through myself as a novelist.

After establishing she lit in Los Angeles, I have a new home base in the Washington, D.C. metro area, so please invite me to your virtual and physical literary spaces and events 😊
