About Tomi Adeyemi

Entertainment Weekly is wondering, “is Tomi Adeyemi the new J.K. Rowling?” Launching to literary fame via a manuscript contest, the young Nigerian-American became the biggest author on the market with her 2018 debut Children of Blood and Bone, becoming a New York Times Bestseller and securing movie and publishing deals. Raised on a literary diet of white-protagonist fantasies, Tomi set out to “write a story that’s so good and so black that everyone’s going to have to read it — even if they’re racist.” Celebrating her pinch-me success with 100K+ #Tominators, Tomi aspires to inspire fans to embark upon their own writing quests, always sharing tricks of the trade.
