    Author Talia Hibbert identifies across multiple spectrums of marginalization: she's a Black woman, queer, disabled, and on the autism spectrum, so her books and characters are filled with representation and inclusion. As she said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly when Get a Life, Chloe Brown was coming out:

    "Who you choose to star in your romance novels and the happy ending that you give them and the love that you show them being worthy of can be very political. Especially because I write about Black women. Black women are often dehumanized and shown as unworthy of love, unworthy of care and delicacy – we’re presented as the ones who care for everyone else, so I do think it’s very political and an act of resistance to center black women and femininity in romance novels."

    Hibbert works hard to create worlds in which deeply real characters, fully formed and realized, get their Happily Ever Afters with fully formed and realized partners that love and respect them, not in spite of these things, but because, added up, they create an amazing person.

    Our colorway honoring Talia Hibbert is called Take a Hint based on her book Take a Hint, Dani Brown, which is book 2 in the Brown Sisters series (Lorajean's favorite for sure!). We hope you'll take a hint from us and deep-dive into Hibbert's wonderful writing.
