SHEENA BOEKWEG grew up reading books with tree branches peeking over her shoulder. Her novels Glitch Kingdom and A Sisterhood of Secret Ambitions, both with Feiwel and Friends/Macmillan, feature fat positive girls with ambitions, love stories, and sometimes battle axes. She’s a contributor to Every Body Shines, a fat-positive anthology from Bloomsbury, and is an alumni of the 2015 Pitch Wars Program and a Pitch Wars mentor in 2017, 2018, and 2020. Sheena believes that beauty is intrinsic and worth is unquestionable, and thinks you can’t solve all problems with food, but it will always help. She is well loved by a tall man with a great beard, her three kids, a demon kitten, and the world’s most spoiled puppy. She’s represented by Jessica Sinsheimer at Context Literary.
