Background Information

Born in New Orleans and raised in San Antonio, TX, Vance attended private school from elementary to middle school where her mother was its first and only black teacher. She transferred to public school after begging her mother and soon faced her first experiences with negative racial comments from black peers who did not consider her “black enough”. She began writing about her experiences in an effort to overcome the pain. In high school, she received an award for her poem, "The Girl In My Mirror” about the pain of rejection by her “own race.” In spite of becoming a mother at 19, she attended college and earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a minor in theology. Married, divorced and widowed, and now happily remarried, she continues to raise her children to love and appreciate others. She plans to write a series of children’s books based on multicultural family life to raise awareness.

Additional Information

“Some interracial families struggle with negative racial comments, harassment and even the loss of economic and emotional support from disapproving family members. “The children of these interracial marriages need a voice for affirming their identities, the right words to defend and protect themselves from others who do not appreciate differences and to help them feel proud of their mixed heritage. This book gives them that. It shows a unique and loving family situation that is a total reflection of today’s society.” -K. R. Vance
