NBCBLK Book Club: Meet Sadeqa Johnson

Sadeqa Johnson didn’t always dream of being an author. She had a focus on making her name in the theater — which provided a natural transition into storytelling.

Johnson, who is currently working on her fourth novel, is attracting many new readers with each book.

NBCBLK caught up with the author to talk about how she got her start, drawing from her own life in her storytelling, and how to write a page-turner. The interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.
