Nice to e-Meet You!
Jesse Byrd is a 30-year-old African-American storyteller and dual-native of California and Louisiana.
At 6 feet 8 inches tall, Jesse paid for his college education playing basketball at one of the top 10 Public Academic Universities in the country (UC Santa Barbara).
After 3 years working on a secret project for Google at their headquarters in
California, Jesse decided to pursue his true love of creating stories for readers young and old.
Jesse’s debut novel, King Penguin, was highly praised and won awards at both the Los Angeles and Paris Annual Book Festivals, placing top 10 for the year in its category.
His next storytelling adventures include: Monsters Are Real (a spooky illustrated mini-series for kids), a "baby's first" basketball ABC book - in collaboration with basketball instructor Ashley Craver, and a heartwarming picture book about a little girl in the south putting the pieces back together in her neighborhood after a natural disaster.
Jesse loves french toast...with sliced strawberries, reading, writing, film, video games, and freshly popped popcorn.
