In 1988 Pinkney was named Senior Editor of Jump at the Sun Books, a division of Hyperion Publishing which creates books that celebrate the black cultural experience.

Andrea Davis Pinkney has said that her 1996 young adult novel, HOLD FAST TO DREAMS is based on her own teenage years.
"Instead of rehashing well-chewed biographical fodder, though, the author dishes up incidents that shaped and tested her subjects' moral and intellectual fiber along with achievements that make her chosen few worth knowing and emulating." (starred review) 09/15/2012
