Kent Marrero (They/Them) is a Latinx, Queer/Non-Binary writer and intersectional advocate born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Kent now lives and works from Jacksonville, Florida, and has worked in print and self-publishing on and off over the course of last decade. ​The Genderqueer author writes LGBTQ+ intersectional characters for Young Adult audiences as a way to increase authentic representation for the next generation. Their style usually has a hit of well-placed humor which diffuses tension without sacrificing the serious undertones their pieces attempt to explore. If you like the humor style of Dear White People, you will love Kent's writing. Writing work highlights include staff writer for a national LGBTQ+ magazine publication, ghostwriting, one self-published LGBTQ+ Romance novel, a self-published book of spoken word poetry, unpublished one-act play, unpublished short story collection, and an unpublished Young Adult coming of age novel.
