Mintie Das - Storyteller


I was born in Assam, India, grew up in Macomb, Illinois and live in Helsinki, Finland. I spent my childhood living all over the world which led to a lifelong case of wanderlust. The discovery of the unknown is my greatest inspiration which is why Iā€™m usually in a new country every month. My global adventures and my addiction to John Hughes, Judy Blume and Shonda Rhimes are the reason I write stories about kickass heroines of color.


Brown Girl Ghosted (Versify/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) drops on March 24, 2020.
