Andi Cumbo-Floyd


I’m a writer, editor, and writing coach who lives and works from her own little 15 acres at the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia – God’s Whisper Farm. We have 6 goats, 35 chickens, 4 dogs, and 3 cats. We’re building a retreat here on our piece of paradise.

I write novels that fold back the corners to show the wild, maybe not entirely natural things that work in our lives. Most of my novels are for young adults, and they often deal with themes of justice, especially around race and ethnicity.

I also write books about writing. In these titles, I including writing tips, writing advice, and writing support.

I’m the author of The Slaves Have Names, Steele Secrets, Charlotte and the Twelve, God’s Whisper Manifesto, Writing Day In and Day Out, Discover your Writing Self, and the forthcoming titles Love Letters to Writers, and Plantation Jesus.
