African American Literature Book ClubCelebrating Our Literary Legacy Since 1997 — Black Literature is for EveryoneAfrican American Literature Book Club
Kai Leakes is from Iowa, but later relocated to Alton, IL and St. Louis, MO. Kais was a multifaceted Midwestern child, who gained an addiction to books at an early age. Sharing stories with her cousins as a teen, writing books didn’t seem like something she would pursue until one day in college.
Storytelling continues to be a major part of her very DNA, with the goal of sharing tales that entertain and add color to a gray literary world. Currently, she resides in Chicago, IL as part of a doctorate program. In her spare time she likes to cook, dabble in photography, and assists with an internet/social networking group online. Loving to feed her Barnes and Noble addiction, romance, fantasy and fiction novels are her world. Reading those particular genres help guide her as she finds the time to write and study for school.
