Today’s episode is a fun one as I interview my son Brady and three other TEEN authors from their new book called “QuaranTEEN—9 Teenagers Share Their Experience of a Worldwide Pandemic.” It just launched on Tuesday (August 25th), and it has already hit #1 on Amazon in 3-different categories.


This collaborative book was created to give teens a positive, proactive project during this incredibly challenging time. In the book, nine teenagers from across the United States share their quarantine experiences. Each of their stories provides their unique perspective of this moment in time and the lessons they have learned along the way. These teens have deeply internalized what is happening, and their deep thoughts and writing will inspire you. In the end, you will discover the hopeful vision they have for our future. 


In this podcast episode, hear about why these kids participated in the book project, what lessons they learned from writing a book, and if they are now excited to go back to school. Tune into the episode now, and please share with any parents who have TEENS.

I would like to give a special shoutout to Scriptor Publishing Group for making this project happen for these teens. Greg Justice and Kelli Watson founded Scriptor Publishing with the desire to help people take their book from dream to published.
