Ayesha Victoria Dwyer, a Waukegan, IL native, is a creative author with a distinct impact on young readers via her expressive disposition and affinity of story-telling in all forms. As a reformed class clown, her vivid imagination enhances her passion for writing. Ayesha has published two multicultural children’s books – Sista Me: Every Mikkel Make a Mukkel and Sista Me and Friends: A Rock and a Hard Place. She has a catalogue of unpublished writings to include a delightful story about the anticipation for The Most Wonderful, Spectacular, Magnificent Day! The story of Sista Me closely resembles the life of Ayesha. Just like the character, she too found herself in sticky situations; however the wisdom of her endearing grandfather was often her saving grace. Through her writings, Ayesha is impassioned to inspire marginalized readers to appreciate literature wherein they are able to identify their likeness within each story. Ayesha’s aspirations are to develop her current books into an animation series and to continue to write stories that will foster lasting memories for generations.
