Alex Wheatle is an award-winning, best-selling author in the UK, published by Hachette/Little, Brown imprint, Atom.

Wheatle is a British author of Jamaican descent who spent most of his youth in foster care in the UK.

As a teenager he was involved in the 1981 Brixton uprising and spent 3 months in prison. His fiction is greatly influenced by his teenage experiences so carries a level of authenticity and honesty.

Home Girl will definitely appeal to fans of Angie Thomas's best-selling novel, The Hate U Give—which Wheatle reviewed for the Guardian.

We are working on securing a blurb from Angie Thomas.

Wheatle regularly contributes to the Guardian, the Independent, and other high profile UK publications.

Akashic is well-connected to Jamaican/Caribbean community in the US.
