About the Author

Letitia deGraft Okyere was inspired in 2016 to research the Third Republic of Ghana, a forgotten period in the history of the nation. The outcome was the novel, The First Vice President: A Biography J.W.S. de Graft-Johnson, published by MacSwain in 2022. Letitia extended her appreciation of historical personalities and the contributions each made to his (or her) world by writing children’s historical biographies of people of African descent. She published Eléni of Ethiopia: The Wise Empress, King Ghartey IV: Innovative 19th Century Merchant, and Phillis Wheatley: Pioneer African American Poet in 2021 through Lion’s Historian Press. Letitia, a proud alumna of the University of Leeds, U.K., continues to search the annals of life for stirring stories of men and women of the past. Letitia lives with her family in Arkansas, the Natural State of the U.S.A., where she works as a public health administrator in state government.
