“Abena Sankofa was born into a family with a love of books.
Growing up, most Saturday afternoons she, along with her mother, father and elder sister could often be found exiting the local library with a crate-full of books so heavy her father had to carry it.
Since then, her passions have moved on to vintage black-and-white detective shows, and British costume dramas – and dreams of writing some herself one day!
As a dedicated Retro Fashionista, she is currently plotting how to fill her closet with 1930s-era hats and dresses.
She lives in North Carolina with her parents, older sister, and a large, handed-down compendium of Jamaican recipes.
