Leslie-Ann Murray

My name is Leslie Ann Murray and I’m a fiction writer and book lover from Trinidad and Tobago. I grew up in East Flatbush, Brookly, and I’m currently living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

At Brown Girl Book Lover we: review diverse books and interview diverse writers. We unearth published books that did not receive the limelight. Most importantly, we talk about books that should be at the forefront of our imagination.

What makes us different? I have spent over ten years teaching and preaching about the importance of diversity in literature. I have taught writing workshops and presented on literary panels in South Africa, China, New York City, Trinidad, Bangladesh, and France.

We believe that books are magic and we are creating a space for everyone to find their super power.
