Hailing from Northern Virginia, Yasmin Angoe is a first-generation Ghanaian American who grew up in two cultural worlds. She taught English in middle and high schools for years, served as an instructional coach for virtual teachers, and works as a freelance developmental and copy editor.
Yasmin received the 2020 Eleanor Taylor Bland Award for Emerging Writers of Color from Sisters in Crime, of which she’s a proud member.
Her Name Is Knight is Yasmin’s smash debut novel featuring an elite assassin heroine on a mission to topple a human trafficking ring and avenge her family.
We talked about Yasmin’s book, the long hard road to getting published, about almost giving up, writing a high-octane thriller that embraces her Ghanaian roots, and a lot more.
