Liselle Sambury is a Trinidadian-Canadian author who grew up in Toronto. Her brand of writing can be described as “messy Black girls in fantasy situations.” She is a social media professional and spends her free time embroiled in reality TV because when you write messy characters you tend to enjoy that sort of drama. She also shares helpful tips for upcoming writers and details of her publishing journey through a YouTube channel dedicated to helping demystify the sometimes complicated business of being an author. She is represented by Kristy Hunter at The Knight Agency.
