About the Author

Shalah Collins was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She grew up in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn which she considers one of the coolest neighborhoods in New York City. For her, Williamsburg holds the blueprint of many childhood memories, and contributes to her depiction of Urban living in New York City. Shalah comes from a large family where laughter, comedy, and big adventures were a staple in her home. It is through these lenses and rich neighborhood history, where her stories begin. Her love of children and great sense of humor, have been the driving force and inspiration for writing children’s books. She pays tribute in her initial installment “Rascalville”, to her late mother Margaret, whose dream was to write children’s books when she retired.
