Hello, friends! I'm Brandi Sumey. I am a Pennsylvania-based author of YA Contemporary novels. Currently, I'm working on drafting a new novel, while polishing my upcoming debut. Because of India is set for release on May 1, 2020.
I am a junior in college in Southwestern PA, where I'm studying elementary education. I'm passionate about the art of writing and hope to educate others, as well as inspire younger generations to love and appreciate the craft.
I've been writing since the third grade, where I drafted several short stories before writing my first novella at the age of twelve. I went on to write a trilogy and published the first two books in the series with KidPub Press.
Following my junior year of high school, I experienced the absence of writing in my life for nearly three years. In December of 2018, I rediscovered my old manuscripts and realized that this creative side of me had been dormant. Shortly after New Year's, I began writing the first draft of what is now my debut novel.
When I'm not writing, I enjoy reading, kayaking, and binge-watching Jane the Virgin or The Office.
