Brittney Morris is the author of SLAY, THE COST OF KNOWING, and MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN: MILES MORALES - WINGS OF FURY. She holds a BA in economics from Boston University and has written for video games including The Lost Legends of Redwall, and Subnautica: Below Zero. She spends her spare time reading, playing indie video games, and enjoying the rain from her home in Philadelphia. She lives with her husband Steven who would rather enjoy the rain from a campsite in the woods because he hasn't played enough horror games, and her darling (and especially wiggly) son. Brittney is the founder and former president of the Boston University Creative Writing Club and looks forward to NaNoWriMo every year. ...more

I thought, 'Hey, if I don't know how to code it, I'll write a book about someone who does!' And thus, Kiera's story was born. Being Black is so multifaceted and kaleidoscopic, and I'm just happy to be able to tell our stories. (I don't think I could quit writing if I tried!)(less)

My favorite part of being a writer is talking to people about what I've written, or what they've written. It's like playing pretend in grade school all over again.(less)

Quotes by Brittney Morris  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“As we duel, as we chat, there's an understanding that "your black is not my black" and "your weird is not my weird" and "your beautiful is not my beautiful," and that's okay. It' brings tears to my eyes if I think about it too long.”
Brittney Morris, Slay

“I want you to imagine for a minute,” she begins. “I know it’s going to be hard for both of you, but just imagine—that literally nothing was made for you. Your parents were denied a house because of their skin color, your grandparents were sprayed with fire hoses and ripped apart by dogs in the streets, your great-grandparents were housemaids and mammies and barely paid entertainers, and your great-great-grandparents were slaves. Every movie in your life is majority Black, all the characters in your favorite books have been cast darker in the movie adaptation for no reason, and every mistake you make is because of your skin color and because of “your background” and because of the music you listen to. You are the only white kids at a school of five hundred Blacks, and every Black person at that school asks you to weigh in on what it’s like to be white, or what white people think about this or that. It’s not fun.”
Brittney Morris, Slay

“Joy in the midst of oppression is its own kind of bravery.”
Brittney Morris, The Cost of Knowing
