More About the Author
Determined to write edgy yet intelligent novels for women who love hip hop even when hip-hop fails to love them in return, Sofía wrote her debut novel EXPLICIT CONTENT under the pen name Black Artemis. Booklist said of her debut, "Fans of Sister Souljah's The Coldest Winter Ever will find this debut novel just as tantalizing. . ." Since then Sofia has authored four more novels and almost twice as many short stories and novellas including her award-winning young adult debut EFRAIN'S SECRET (Knopf 2010.)
She recently earned an MFA in writing and producing TV at the TV Writers Studio of Long Island University and contributed the children's anthology WHAT YOU WISH FOR, the proceeds of which go to build libraries for Darfuri children in Chad. Her journalistic writings have been published in Urban Latino, New York Post, Ms., Cosmopolitan for Latinas and El Diario/La Prensa.
As an educator, she is a writing mentor at Urban Word NYC, a teaching artist at the National Book Foundation's reading program BookUpNYC and the co-publisher of the hip-hop feminist curriculum Conscious Women Rock the Page. Sofia was nominated for the Women's Media Center Social Media Award in 2010 and is completing her next young adult novel SHOW AND PROVE.
