Quianna Canada resides in the city of Austin, works on political campaigns, and has joined the progressive movement. She interns for the Texas Democratic Party in the Communications Department. Her autodidact experience is in criminal and constitutional law. When she's not on the campaign trail, you’ll find her in a snug coffee shop, a bookstore, or devoting time to her family. She enjoys volleyball and keeping up with current events—a huge fan of House of Cards and Shondaland’s: Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder. Her memoir, Running From Empty Shoes, is her first novel.
