A native New Yorker, Kwana spent her formative years on the ‘A’ train going from her home in Washington Heights to The Village where she attended Stuyvesant High School. On that long ride to study math and science, Kwana had two dreams: 1. to be a fashion designer and 2. to be a writer.
After graduating from Stuyvesant, Kwana studied fashion design at FIT. She then spent ten years designing for various fashion houses. But after having twins and juggling that and fashion, Kwana took the leap of faith and decided to pursue her other dream of being a writer.
She currently lives in a suburb of New York with her husband, twins, and a precocious terrier named Jack that keeps her on her toes.
