MAIKA MOULITE AND MARITZA MOULITE are sisters and co-authors of the young adult novel DEAR HAITI, LOVE ALAINE (Inkyard Press/HarperCollins) and their latest book ONE OF THE GOOD ONES.
MAIKA MOULITE is a Miami native and the daughter of Haitian immigrants. She earned a bachelor’s in marketing from Florida State University and an MBA from the University of Miami. When she’s not using her digital prowess to help nonprofits and major organizations tell their stories online, she’s sharpening her skills as a PhD student at Howard University’s Communication, Culture and Media Studies program. Her research focuses on representation in media and its impact on marginalized groups. She’s the eldest of four sisters and loves young adult novels, fierce female leads, and laughing.
