Album Art: "So Good," by Mica Paris

Novelist and activist Aya de Leon just released the fourth book in her "Justice Hustler" series, which carves out a space for women of color in the crime genre. The latest book, "Side Chick Nation," gives a lens to the plight of Puerto Rico, both before and after the Maria disaster.

Writing feminist heist novels that challenge mainstream fiction while maintaining all the sex-appeal must be tiring, so when Aya needs to relax she listens to this song by Mica Paris. Check it out!

So many dreams have come and gone
Unfulfilled until today
Reach out and touch me like the sun
You know I need your inspiration
