Author Author A Children's Writers Event

The Coffee Phix Cafe is excited to welcome two new authors to our Author Author Series for February  


Braylan Lamar at age five, one evening proclaimed very matter-of-factly, “Bedtime is the worst time!” That one phrase set him off on a literary discovery and an accomplishment rarely achieved from a five year old, he published his story aptly titled “Bedtime is the Worst Time!”


And then there is Sarai Murdock who at age eight found herself the object of bulling. At age ten she decided to write about her experiences, and to let others know not to be afraid of standing up for themselves. And so she wrote and published her book “Bully Free Zone”.


If you know of a young aspiring writer looking for inspiration, these two extraordinary young people fit the bill! Join us at the Coffee Phix Café on Saturday, February 24 at 1:00 pm. Hear their stories, be inspired by their achievement.


The Coffee Phix Cafe, located at 4485 Mayfield Road, South Euclid, Ohio 44121. We will offer free hot chocolate and treats to all children attending.

Author Braylan Lamar

Braylan Lamar is seven years old. One evening at age five he’d been playing happily with his LEGO’s toys when his mother called out “Its bedtime Braylan”. Upset that he couldn’t continue his play, he pronounced “Bedtime is the Worst Time!” His mother and grandmother thought that would be a great title for a book. Braylan thought so too. So when he returned from school that day, he started writing his book “Bedtime is the Worst Time”.

Author Sarai Murdock

The 3rd grade was the worse for Sarai.  She was 8 years old and the smallest in her class. Other children teased and insulted her because of her size and high voice. As a sensitive child it was hard for her to stand up to the bullies. Bullying continued through the 5th and 6th grades, however the older Sarai got the less sensitive she was and ultimately she did stand up for herself. She began writing her book in the 5th grade and finished her book and published in June 2017. This is her story.
