About the Author

Dionne Bowen is on a mission to celebrate black beauty and brilliance, by instilling inspiration and pride in children of colour.

 

As an Educational Specialist from North West London, Dionne uses children’s literature to channel her message which has self-love at its core. Nia’s Story is her debut book inspired by her own daughter, Nia who passed away suddenly aged just two years old. It tells the heart-warming tale of a mother expressing her love for her bright and brilliant daughter, while celebrating her magnificent black beauty. The book encourages black and brown children to love all of their unique features and differences, as these are the things that make them ‘simply beautiful’.  

 

“I had written Nia’s story: Simply Beautiful Me’ in 2015 when I was 7 months pregnant with my first-born Nia. It was supposed to be my first gift to her. I wanted to offer words of love and encouragement and celebrate her magnificence! I was all too aware of the insecurities that many little black and brown children face through the lack of positive representations and praise in the mainstream media. I wanted my daughter to grow up knowing that she was special and absolutely beautiful. The publication of Nia’s story is my way of honouring my little princess.”  Dionne S. Bowen
