I'm Khadijah VanBrakle and I am a writer for children of all ages. I've written MG and PB before finding my Contemporary YA Voice. As a Muslim WOC, I love to give my teenage MC's impossible choices. Outside of writing, I practice martial arts and love to bake! Being born and raised in Canada, I love watching hockey and getting into the occasional snowball fight!
One more small, note about me.
I was fortunate to be selected as a mentee for the first WriteMentor revision program in 2018. I worked on an earlier manuscript for the entire summer and learned a ton. During that time I found out that
REVISING IS MY JAM!!!
Drafting from scratch is like pulling teeth with a plastic spoon for me but the need to get the stories inside my head out, pushes me to keep writing.
I welcome more writing friends. I'm slightly addicted to Twitter, click below to check out my feed.
