Preview: Adra Young

Welcome everyone to a brand new edition of the Writer's Revolution. I am your host, the author of The Phoenix Blade, Andrew Hess. Today I want to bring you an update on one of our previous guests, Adra Young.

Adra Young, a native of Gary Indiana, is not your typical teacher.  This educator has over eighteen years of experience under her belt with the Detroit Public School system.

In 2005, Young published her book titled, The Everyday Living of Children and Teens Monologues. In 2006, she launched and established Ardannyl…an after school program promoting the arts placing a direct emphasis on appropriate socialization skills. Her second book, The Everyday Living of Children & Teens Monologues Volume II was released in 2008.

On a mission to ensure that youngsters within the Detroit region have a voice, Young partnered up with the Detroit Impact Center in 2010 to serve as a socialization skills provider.   In May of 2013, her third book, The Misfits, a fictional read based upon middle school bullying, was released in e-book version.  Currently, Young blogs about educational concerns that pertain to the youth and recently achieved international book reviewer status due to conducting over 100 book reviews for both traditional and self-published authors.  In the fall of 2013, Young added yet another credential to her list of areas and expertise.  Having a love for great cuisine, she currently conducts culinary critiques for restaurants within the South East region of Michigan.
