“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” ~Neil Gaiman~
Super Psyched to conduct an author visit!!!
Once upon a time, Miracle Austin worked with youths in her past and enjoyed listening to their stories.
Today, she absolutely enjoys being an author because it continues to allow her to engage with youths/young adults (adults too) and share her knowledge to inspire whatever dreams they may possess.
She enjoys speaking with youths about reading, writing, perseverance, believing in yourself, taking chances, and the power of a colorful imagination. She’s a huge believer in promoting literacy in fun interactions.
Schools, libraries, bookstores, and others may contact her directly through her website in order to receive more information on arranging an in-person author visit or via Skype.
Miracle stills work a regular 9-5 job, at this time; therefore, dates and times for author visits will need to be a fair accommodation with her schedule. She hopes and dreams to one day blossom into a full-time author.
