Introducing 6 Women Writing Blackness in All of its Glory

Introducing 6 Women Writing Blackness in All of its Glory

In this group there are two sisters, two law school graduates, two PhD students, and three journalists. Geographically, they live at different points east, west, north and south in the United States and abroad.  In addition to authoring books featuring diverse Black characters and stories, they also share the belief that representation matters. Each has authored a critically acclaimed novel that has been well-received by multiple communities: young adult/teen, romance, LGBTQ+ and crime. In short, they are smart women writing smart books that entertain. 

Maika and Maritza Moulite are sisters and co-authors. 

Maika Moulite is a Miami native and the daughter of Haitian immigrants. She is a Howard University PhD student. Her research focuses on representation in media and its impact on marginalized groups. She’s the eldest of four sisters and loves audiobooks, fierce female leads, and laughing.

Maritza Moulite graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s in women’s studies and the University of Southern California with a master’s in journalism. She’s worked in various capacities for NBC News, CNN, and USA TODAY but her favorite roles were Head Start literacy tutor and pre-k teacher assistant. She is now a PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania exploring ways to improve literacy through children’s media.

Oakland native and law grad, Taj McCoy, is committed to writing stories championing Black and multiracial women of color, plus-sized protagonists, Black love, and characters with a strong sense of sisterhood and familial bonds. Her debut novel–a romcom featuring a plus-size heroine–SAVVY SHELDON’S FEELING GOOD AS HELL will be published by MIRA Books (Harlequin HarperCollins). When she’s not writing, she may be on Twitter boosting other marginalized writers, trying to Zen out in yoga, sharing recipes on her website, or cooking private supper club meals for close friends.
