Introducing 2013 MCBF Author, Anita Bunkley

Anita Bunkley is the author of more than twenty successful mainstream novels and novellas. A member of the Texas Institute of Letters, and an NAACP image award nominee, she enjoys researching the lives of interesting African Americans whose stories have not been told. Her book Emily, the Yellow Rose creates the legend of a woman whose place in Texas history and connection to the folksong, The Yellow Rose of Texas, had been lost. Twenty three years later she is still uncovering interesting stories and is currently at work on a new novel set in Pre-Civil War Oklahoma that delves into the intertwined lives of Blacks and Native Americans.
