Towanda Mckie is a native of Baltimore, Maryland but currently resides in York, Pennsylvania. She is a certified teacher, literacy advocate, and writer. Towanda's goal is to not only bring attention to the illiteracy rate across the globe but to advocate for literacy services for those who need it.
Towanda loves to write, laugh, and spend time with her family which includes her husband, Andrew and their two children, Tyler and Kayla.
Kayla Mckie is a ninth grade student who enjoys writing with her mom. They have written two books together, Addy Goes to Grandma's House, and Cassie's Birthday Wish. Towanda and Kayla have plans to collaborate on additional children's books.
Towanda and her family promotes reading by writing stories that are interesting and funny, they also promote events that celebrate reading and show the importance of literacy at home, and they do book reviews with the hope that someone is inspired to visit their library or bookstore for books to read.
