This week on Black and Published, Nikesha speaks with Laura Warrell, author of the novel, Sweet, Soft, Plenty Rhythm, which was named a ‘best’ or ‘must-read’ book by Vanity Fair, People, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, and more. The novel was chosen as a Good Morning America Buzz Pick and Laura was named
a “Writer to Watch” by Publishers Weekly. She grew up in Kent and Columbus, Ohio.
In our conversation, Laura discusses her 25 year journey to publishing her debut novel. What it means now that her big dream has come true. And why she's not committed to giving her characters happy endings.
