Martha Brockenbrough (@mbrockenbrough) is the author of UNPRESIDENTED: A BIOGRAPHY OF DONALD TRUMP, the first biography of our 45th president written for teens. Martha approached her research with a mindset of presenting information fairly and with a lens of looking for patterns in actions and what those patterns tell us about the subject matter. It won’t surprise you that what the patterns pointed to was winning. At all costs. Sometimes by redefining the game in or to resubstant the win. And all too often claiming win to the detriment of already historically marginalized peoples. Some of the information Martha presents may make you or your readers uncomfortable. To that, Martha reminds us that “uncomfortable is different from unfair.” You can access even more information about this book and its author illustrator by visiting
