I was pleased to learn that I have become a best-selling author based on the number of books sold. Thank you to all who have supported me, making this possible!
Readers Grow Into Leaders Literacy Program Update
The program is still going strong! There are two schools left to visit out of the twelve that were on my list. So far, sponsors have made it possible for me to give away about 500 books valued at $6,500.00. I still have about 200 books to give away to students and I am waiting on word from the Public School Board on which schools to visit. A huge thank you to all the sponsors who have made this program a success!

The Adventures of Connecticut, Connecticut's Journey to Grand Central Station, by Shelley Awad and Kristi Mason will be available in June. Kristi Mason, 17, is an exceptional student with learning disabilities. Everyone always asks Connecticut about his unusual name. He doesn't like being asked, but he explains that his mother was the Governor of Connecticut at the time of his birth, 17 years earlier.
Shortly after his birth, his parents were killed, and Connecticut was raised by his grandmother. Connecticut's grandmother became too old and sick to care for him, and that's when Connecticut was adopted by the Reese family who secretly live in a very special place--Grand Central Station in New York City. Once Connecticut arrives in New York City, he meets his twin brothers, Jordan and Christopher, and the adventures begin! For children aged 9 to 12, or for special education students of any age!
