Picture Perfect Reads, based in Atlanta, is the business through which my passion for diverse children's literature comes to life. In my books, you'll find children of color as the central characters, filling a vital gap in today's children's literary world. When you explore my website, expect to be immersed in a world of vivid and vibrant art that takes a maximalist approach to illustrations, making the reading experience truly unforgettable.

But Picture Perfect Reads is more than just representation; it's about education and empowerment. I believe children's books should not only entertain but also impart valuable life lessons. That's why I'm dedicated to introducing scientific concepts in a fun and engaging manner, igniting children's curiosity and love for science. I understand the need for alternatives to screen time, and my books offer parents a valuable tool to engage and entertain their children while fostering their knowledge.

My journey began in 2019 when I recognized the critical need for diversity in children's literature. This realization led me to establish Picture Perfect Reads with a mission to empower children of color by ensuring they see themselves as the protagonists of their own stories. My debut children's book, "Penelope and the Power of Positivity," tells the inspiring story of an 8-year-old girl from the Bronx with dreams of becoming a doctor. She faces challenges from her two best friends, Fear and Self-Doubt, who doubt the enormity of her dreams. Through Penelope's journey, children will learn the power of transforming negative thoughts into positive ones, fostering a growth mindset that believes in the potential for skill development over time.

As a board-certified Obstetrician-Gynecologist, I've faced my share of challenges and self-doubt during my medical training. It was through this journey that I discovered the transformative power of a growth mindset, a lesson I am passionate about sharing with my own children and yours. As a parent, I understand the unique challenges of raising children, and I am committed to creating books that not only entertain but also make parenting a little bit easier.
