About the Author

Maggy Williams started writing at five years old and hasn't stopped since. She loves creating stories for young readers because they have the best imaginations and because she never wants to grow up. When she's not writing, she enjoys acting and comedy improv, which is basically just make-believe for grown-ups.
Originally from Vancouver, Elizabeth is a third-generation artist who moved to Connecticut in 1989. Elizabeth studied at the Silvermine School of Art, and today is best known for her urban and landscape paintings. With three mixed children of their own, she and her husband, Thomas, especially appreciate the timeliness and optimism of Maggy's work.

Reviews

"I'm Mixed is a simple story which approaches how we describe ourselves from an early age, from the perspective of a young girl who has a black father and a white mother. It encourages children to embrace their appearance without labeling themselves as one race or another. In an increasingly diverse world, acceptance, inclusion and self-awareness are imperative, and Maggy Williams gives us a great starting point for conversation."
--Lori Siesto, MME-MT, MT-BC, author, educator and music therapist

"Maggy Williams' text comes straight from the heart, helping us all say goodbye to the days when a child had to own only one identity. This book is a loving message to all children, regardless of ethnicity. Love who you are, be who you are meant to be and find the joy in being you!"
--Ellen E. Sadler, children's book author and award-winning educator

"At a time when so many feel excluded and less-than, I'm Mixed, by Maggy Williams, reminds us that everyone is to be appreciated and celebrated for who and what they are."
--Cyrus Webb, media personality, author, and speaker

"Talk about an empowering storybook! If ever this book was needed, it is now! Maggy Williams inspires courage, self-respect and strength in children who are 'mixed' and children of all colors."
--DeeDee Ginns-Gruenberg, The Self-Esteem Shop
