Isabelle Hardesty is a Miami native who
uses her creative work to share her experiences growing up in South
Florida. She is committed to creating rich and strong female
characters in her books. Hardesty wants young people and women of
color to see themselves in her novels and know they are a
meaningful part of the world they’re in.
Hardesty received her BFA from Pratt Institute and has worked in
NYC as an assistant fashion designer. Her rich and textured life
experiences allow her to create characters and plots that engage
readers. One common thread in all of her professional experiences
is that storytelling is always king.

things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept."
