Hey! My name is Taylor! I am 4th year Sociology major at THE Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. As an activist, and author I strive to make my work mean something and leave a mark on those who read it. With my first book, Caged: A Poetic Collection of the African American Experience, already being used in college and high school level classrooms, my dream of making that impact is becoming a reality. 

But, I want to do something bigger and create a black self-loving universe of it's very own: The Fluffy Adventures of FroMo! This project has come from my own experience of learning to love myself, my hair and is a story all children will enjoy. Join FroMo as she battles villains, and sneaky classmates with her sidekick Coil and the rest of her super gang!

What every child needs is the love for themselves. Maybe not levitation, fire shooting from their eyes or lighting, but understanding  that they are super all on their own. That is exactly who Monique (FroMo) is, a self invented superhero who proves that you don't need anything more than a dream (and a few hair products) to get things going. Children will love this self-love superhero novel and enjoy a journey all too similar to their own.

I am raising funds to make this dream possible and the best it can be with professional editing, illustrations and marketing. But, I need your help to make it all happen. 

The goal is to publish this book in time for the new school year (Fall 2019).

Risks and challenges

The potential risk will be the editing and illustration time. Based on what the editor sees with the book and the illustrations the timeline may be extended. However the predicted date of completion is July 2019.
