Tatiana is eager to conjure stories which cast black girls as the focal points—sculpting their likeness as they see themselves: divine, soft, intelligent, vulnerable, dynamic, caring, sweet, valuable, multi-faceted, and resilient.
In her books, they will lead stories with their voices and peregrinations towards self-identity, relationship maintenance, and the many adventures their imagined worlds can bring.
Tatiana White grew up on a creative diet of comics, poetry, film, essays, and books.
An advocate for diversity, Tatiana studied the mechanics of film, creative writing, and journalism with the overall goal of altering narratives and imagery imposed on black youths and adults. She achieved a bachelor’s degree in Mass Media Communications and went on to work for various Bay Area media staples before returning to her first love: storytelling.
When Tatiana’s not toiling over her computer, she’s occupied with her life as wife to her college sweetheart and full-time role as mother of two girls (or mutants, as she likes to call them) and a cantankerous schnauzer.
