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”.

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.

Ella Lopez

Ella C. Lopez is a 9 year old Child Author, gifted student & proud Homeschool girl. She has been featured as a highly regarded Child Author by The College of Wooster's International Magazine and was the first child honored to speak about her book at The Northeastern Ohio Author's Round Table. Her book is being featured at local bookstores, including her favorite, The Fireside Bookshop of Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
