Kristen Simmons: “I recently received a review that accused me of writing mixed-race characters, like myself, for “diversity brownie points.” It’s taken a while to get my feelings in order about this, but here is my response, and what it means to me to be a mixed-race author.”
I’ve thought about adding Think About It Tuesday for a while. There’s a risk, though, that by doing this, my little slice of heaven (a positive place on the internet) would change CRB into a negative environment.
