About the Author

Tinee Furbert is a Bermudian author and occupational therapist. She has a passion for children’s literature. Tinee remembers as a child calling into Bermuda Youth Library’s “Dial-A-Story” to listen to bedtime stories every night. It was only fitting that she would set out on a journey of writing a children’s book. She recognizes the power of storytelling to empower black and brown girls and women to be their best whole selves. When Tinee is not advocating for young exceptional people and seniors, she enjoys traveling, food tasting, and spending time with loved ones. She lives and works in Bermuda with her family and her fur baby, Remy Ma.
