The next J.K. Rowling may be right here from the Chicago area!

24-year-old Tomi Adeyemi just signed a seven-figure book deal, an unprecedented move for a debut author.

Adeyemi promoted her new book, Children of Blood and Bone, recently in downtown Naperville. The book is based in a fictional African nation.
