Dhonielle Clayton

Clayton is the coauthor of the "Tiny Pretty Things" series. She grew up in the Washington, DC, suburbs on the
Maryland side and spent most of her time under her grandmother's table with a stack of books. A former
teacher and middle school librarian, Dhonielle is cofounder of CAKE Literary, a creative development
company whipping up decidedly diverse books for a wide array of readers, and COO of the non-profit, We
Need Diverse Books. She's got a serious travel bug and loves spending time outside of the USA but makes her
home in New York City, where she can most likely be found hunting for the best slice of pizza. Her most
recent book is "The Belles." You can also find her online at www.dhonielleclayton.com.
