About the Author.
Kenyatta Ardrey is a native of Charlotte, North Carolina. After a decade in the Finance industry, Kenyatta switched gears to follow her passion of writing children’s books. She began navigating this new world of wonder by pursuing opportunities that tap into the imaginative minds of children. This pursuit soon landed her a role as a full-time nanny for two young boys, Jackson and Ethan. It is through these relationships and experiences that the world of Yaya was forged.
With stories like Jack and Yaya’s Snow day, and The Secret Adventures of Ethan and Chance, Kenyatta combines real life experiences with creative and compelling storytelling that not only entertains kids and parents alike, but also teaches practical life lessons. When she isn’t writing, you might find Kenyatta spending time with her family or traveling with friends.
