About the Author

ANTHONY RAY HINTON spent nearly thirty years on death row for crimes he didn't commit. Released in April 2015, Hinton now speaks widely on prison reform and the power of faith and forgiveness. He lives in Alabama.
Lara Love Hardin is a literary agent, author, and president of True Literary. Prior to founding True Literary, she was the co-Ceo of Idea Architects. She has an MFA in creative writing and is a four-time New York Times bestselling collaborative writer, including the #1 New York Times bestseller Designing Your Life, and 2018 Oprah Book Club pick, The Sun Does Shine, which she coauthored with Anthony Ray Hinton. In 2019 she won a Christopher Award for her work "affirming the highest values of the human spirit." In 2019 she was also nominated for an NAACP Image Award and short-listed for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize. Love Hardin lives in La Selva Beach, California, with her husband, Sam. She has four children, two step-children, five dogs, three cats, twenty-one chickens, and four ducks.
Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich made up stories for her little sister when she was young, including one "true story" that she'd starred on Sesame Street, but had turned herself invisible to viewers. Today, she writes fiction and nonfiction, including the NAACP Image Award nominee Two Naomis, with Audrey Vernick, and its sequel, Nerdy Book Club winner Naomis Too. She's the author of 8th Grade Superzero, a Notable Book for a Global Society, Someday is Now: Clara Luper and the 1958 Oklahoma City Sit-ins, a Notable Social Studies Trade Book, Above and Beyond: NASA's Journey to Tomorrow, and the editor of The Hero Next Door, a middle grade anthology from We Need Diverse Books. She lives with her family in NYC where she writes, makes things, and needs to get more sleep.
