Storm: Dawn Of A Goddess

Tiffany D. Jackson is the New York Times bestselling author of Grown, Monday’s Not Coming, Allegedly, White Smoke, The Weight of Blood, and more. A Coretta Scott King–John Steptoe New Talent Award winner and an NAACP Image Award-nominee, Jackson has over a decade of experience in TV and film. In her first foray into speculative fiction, Tiffany D. Jackson provides a breathtaking spin on the beloved icon, telling her story in an authentic, joyful, and powerful way.

“It’s no secret that I grew up loving X-Men, specifically Storm, a Black woman Super Hero!” said Jackson. “So when this opportunity came about, I jumped, cried, and begged. Research for this book took me into the depths of the Marvel archives to the streets of Cairo, Egypt. Tackling Ororo’s journey, especially for my first fantasy novel, wasn’t easy but was so very worth it.”

To kick off book, Jackson will be featured on the Women of Marvel Podcast on October 18, in an episode devoted to Storm. 

Storm: Dawn Of A Goddess is available for preorder now and will also be available as an audiobook from Listening Library.
