Jenny Delacruz is a Haitian-American writer, a licensed counselor and the founder of Cobbs Creek Publishing. She is a wife and mom of 2 boys. Born and raised in New York, she has always been aware of the importance of diversity and how each person has a story that weaves back to generations.

Jenny’s passion for teaching her children about world history and current events led her to pursue writing and launch her own educational children’s book series. She has written 2 picture books, "Fridays With Ms. Mélange: Haiti" and "Momma, Can I Sleep with You Tonight?" which helps children cope with the impact of COVID-19. She recently released her first nonfiction book for adults called "How Was Your Summer? Fostering Critical Conversations with Students." It’s a guide for parents and teachers to nurture mental health in kids from grades K-12.

During this episode, you will hear Jenny talk about:

  • How she wrote her first book for her son who wanted to learn more about Haiti, which led her to start Cobbs Creek Publishing
  • Her advice on how to talk to kids about tough topics in an age-appropriate way
  • How her youngest son inspired her to write “Momma, Can I Sleep with You Tonight?”
  • How she uses social media to increase her books’ reach and accessibility
  • Her future plans for writing and publishing
