R.B. Woodstone is a writer, educator, and musician from Brooklyn, NY.
R.B. is fascinated by stories that blend fantasy and history. With Chains of Time, one of his primary goals was to create Black heroes whose unusual abilities allow them to establish a connection between past and present. He respects that some people are uncomfortable with white authors writing Black characters, but he believes that white Americans must explore and address the ramifications of slavery, one of America’s original sins. And such stories are often seen best through the eyes of Black characters. To that end, R.B. strives to create Black protagonists who exist for their own sake and not as machinery to facilitate the emergence of white protagonists.
