My guest today is a new up and coming author of science fiction. She has published several short stories and is working on a novel. I sit down with Jendayi to talk about how she became a writer, the impact of reading diversely, and why taking a chance on herself turned out to be one of the best choices she's made. We also share some book recommendations! I've read Jendayi's short stories and I believe that we are seeing the beginning of a great writing career!
Check out her works at https://jendayibrooksflemister.com/ and let me know what you think.
