Lucy is a friend of mine. She just read my book on Selena Gomez and told me she loved it! With her parents’ permission I’ve posted her picture here with a copy of the book. Biographies are great books to read to learn about people who have made a difference in the lives of other people.
I remember the first biography I read as a student:
Frederick Douglass Fights for Freedom.
Hear that alliteration? I think that’s why the title has stayed with me all these years.
Frederick Douglass was a brave, intelligent man who was kept as a slave for many years before earning his freedom. I was thrilled to learn about his exciting life. That’s why I like writing biographies of people like Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Leona Lewis. These young women have set goals and obtained them, then set even higher goals.
They teach me a lot about how I should be living my life.
What books do you like to read? What goals have you set for your life?
