FOYINSI ADEGBONMIRE

A smiling brown skin Black woman in her mid-twenties wearing a blue blouse and white pants. Her box braids are packed into a bun with gold thread and beads incorporated.

Foyinsi Adegbonmire is an Associate Editor at Feiwel & Friends, an imprint of Macmillan Children's Publishing Group. She acquires Middle Grade and Young Adult fiction, from contemporary to mystery to grounded science fiction, and enjoys lighthearted stories with conversational narrative voices. She was named a 2021 PW Star Watch Honoree and her acquisitions include New York Times-bestseller Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé. When not reading or thinking about her very large TBR pile, she can be found watching Black sitcoms from the 90s/early 2000s and fictional crime shows, or obsessing over bullet journaling.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR

I'm currently mainly looking for YA fantasy that is NOT dark fantasy and does NOT have systemic oppression/racism as the villain or a main plot point, just intriguing worldbuilding and magic system.
