About Isi

Isi Hendrix is an NAACP Image Award-nominated children’s book author who has been lucky enough to live and work all over the world, from the Himalayas to the Amazon rainforest, during her past life as an anthropologist. Now she’s based in her hometown of Brooklyn, NY, where she lives with a rotating roster of foster kittens and a stubborn refusal to accept that she is highly allergic to cats.

Her middle grade debut, ADIA KELBARA AND THE CIRCLE OF SHAMANS is out now!

Book two in the series, ADIA KELBARA AND THE HIGH QUEEN’S TOMB, coming soon!
