ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Alyson Reid-Larade is an award winning high school teacher who has been teaching and coaching teens for 18 years. Her students have appreciated her style of treating them like the adults they are becoming. In fact, they found her lessons so helpful that they suggested that she turn them into a book.
So, after many years of writing late at night, after her own two young children were asleep, she has completed How to Be Your Own Hero, her first book.
She's not stopping there, however, and is currently working on her second book.
Alyson Reid-Larade's hope is that both of her books will help teens and young adults find resilience and, in doing so, guide them toward their best futures.
