Kailey Bright is a contemporary YA fiction author and computer scientist, which means she writes code during daylight and writes about fantastical worlds under starlight.
Tired of YA stories where protagonists suddenly get secret, plot-helpful powers, Bright seeks to write powerful and ambitious stories about characters who persevere with and through disadvantages. Her books are meant to positively impact readers who struggle with challenging societal norms and cultivating inner growth.
When she’s not tanning under her computer screen’s glow, Kailey enjoys winning at mediocre bowling and drinking tea on cool mornings.
Ambitious in Pink
If there is ever a newspaper article about me, I hope the headline reads, "Ambitious in Pink".
Ambition pulls me out of the depths of my depression. Ambition keeps me moving forward towards success--towards a life I can live to the fullest despite anxiety and self-doubt. Ambition reminds me I can be stronger than fear. Ambition means each day has meaning.
I used to actively ostracize the color pink too, before I realized I actually liked the color regardless of its "girlie" connotations. Now, I want to prove that you can be who you are despite societal expectations and norms.
Hence, UNFORTUNATE was born.
