How to Write, Market, and Live from the Heart with Khadija Grant

Category : Idea Accelerator with Lauren Collier

Khadija Grant is an author with a passion for transforming social issues into raw, inspirational stories, and she enjoys giving back to the youth who live her stories every single day.

At age 29, writing became a passion that woke her up early in the morning and kept her up all night. She allows her heart to guide her writing. This has led her to writing children’s entrepreneurial books, middle grade horror,  and comedic poetry.

Her dream is to touch as many lives as possible, especially those who come from unfortunate circumstances, and help to build them up to become bold enough to fight for their dreams. Her books include The Influenced, The Itch and You Can Do It Too.

Topics Discussed:

  • How Khadija started writing stories

    First time I’ve heard Idea Accelerator Podcast! It’s wonderful. I was attracted to it because of speaker, Khadija Grant, an author of three books I’ve eagerly read! Matter of fact, I first met her at a book signing! She is energetic, self-motivating, and full of the motivating characteristics I wish everyone possessed. A fantastic mentor for young people...may the universe have more like her! By the way, I love the format of this page as a guide to the topics of the speaker. Great interview
