Uzuri Wilkerson's very first "publication" was a story about a man and his unicorns. It was a chapter book, about seven pages long. Her teacher laminated the story and displayed it in the elementary school's library.
Later, Uzuri would go on to write poems, short stories, and, eventually, novels. She started her vampire series in 2009, the first volume about a turf war in Boston between vampires and hunters. She signed on with Aziza Publishing, who released the first two volumes. She loves movies, reading, and discovering new cheeses.
