Jayne Allen is a black girl from Detroit who smiles widely, laughs loudly and loves to tell stories that stick to your bones. Her debut novel, “Black Girls Must Die Exhausted,” which Kirkus Reviews called “both timely and enjoyable,” touches upon contemporary women’s issues such as workplace womanhood, race, fertility, modern relationships and mental health awareness, echoing her desire to bring both multiculturalism and multidimensionality to contemporary women’s fiction with dynamic female protagonists who also happen to be black. When she’s not writing “chocolate chick lit with a conscience,” she’s spending time with her girlfriends, keeping one ear open for her next saucy tale.
