books aren’t just what we do, they’re who we are

Welcome to Mayonn Paasewe-Valchev!

Welcome aboard to our newest KT Literary client, Mayonn Paasewe-Valchev!

I met Mayonn at the recent Atlanta Writers Conference and she blew me away with her pitch for a middle grade magical realism about grief told in the West African oral tradition. I’m so excited to be working with her!

Mayonn is working on her author website – check it out here:

And, a short bio to share:
Mayonn Paasewe-Valchev is a writer and a reader. Born in Liberia, she was exposed to a culture of oral storytelling at a young age. She lived several years in the Netherlands where she learned to stuff her klompen (wooden shoes) with carrots and developed a love for reading stories—especially tales written by Roald Dahl and Astrid Lindgren. Her hobbies include running, riding her red bicycle, and daydreaming. She lives in Georgia with her family.
