Verdell is a corporate warrior but writing is her first love. She published her first novel, The Coven: Fire and Ice, in 2013. Passionate about social justice issues, she runs the “Black Ally Resource List”, a curated collection of resources geared toward educating potential allies as well as the “Forever February” platform which celebrates lesser known African American greats. If Verdell's not writing, she's reading. Find her on Twitter with @verdellwalker or on Instagram at @forever_february17.
