Publishers are missing out on a marketplace that is ripe for profit. The problem is, they don't recognize it. Best selling author Dhonielle Clayton, however, realized the gap in the marketplace and is making it her mission to convince publishers that have more diversity in books is good for the readers and the companies.

Adam Schroeder and Naresh Vissa talk with Dhonielle about what the numbers say, how her organization helps authors, and the Netflix original series based on her book Tiny Pretty Things.

Dhonielle Clayton is the New York Times Bestselling author of The Belles series, the co-author of Blackout, and the co-author of the Tiny Pretty Things duology (now a Netflix original series). She is Co-Founder of Cake Creative and COO of We Need Diverse Books, which seeks to increase representations of marginalized groups in children and young adult literature, and also the host of the podcast Deadline City.
