My pick for underrated author would have to be Karen E. Quinones-Miller. I’ve read the majority of her books and loved them all. While I wanted more of a resolution to Passin‘, I had absolutely no qualms with all of the other books and thoroughly enjoyed each of them. Her work includes:
Ida B. (retitled to Uptown Dreams)
Harlem Godfather: The Rap on My Husband, Ellsworth “Bumpy” Johnson
Using What You Got
I’ve read them all except Harlem Godfather and they were all great stories. But my abosolute favorites would have to be:
So if you plan on giving her books a go, I’d start with any one of these.
Marcus Major, and Shaneska Jackson. I actually haven’t seen or read anything new from these two in a long time. But I loved and read their existing work over and over again. I hope they both decide to come back to the writing scene soon.
