Dolores Andral was born in Brooklyn, NY to Haitian parents. She loves reading, writing and creating. She has a book in every room, so she’s never without a story on hand. Her hobbies include making clay dolls, teaching herself animation, and writing screenplays (for her clay dolls and cartoon characters, of course!).
She earned an MFA from Queens University in Charlotte, NC. After working on three adult novels, she never thought she’d write for children until she realized the need for her children to see themselves represented in books. The countless books she read during her 10 years as a preschool teacher contributed as well. Dolores is repped by Kelly Dyksterhouse.
Fun Fact: Dolores was a radio DJ and rapper in college. She sometimes rapped with her twin brother.
