As an high school senior, Michellene Barrett published her first juvenile fiction “Englisha and David’s Adventurous Vacation.” The story of Englisha and David is about two teens who embark on a journey of independence and self-discovery where they learn the value of love, forgiveness and living life to the fullest.
In the fourth grade, Michellene began writing stories about the adventures of Englisha and David. Her classmates would gather around and listen. They would say, “Michellene, you need to be a published author.” Right there in her classroom, her desire to be a writer was born. Michellene began her quest to becoming a published author and eight years later, it became a reality.
Michellene Barrett graduated from Columbia University Teachers College with a masters degree in Literacy and a bachelors degree in Childhood Education from City College of New York. Michellene is currently an elementary school teacher in Brooklyn. Her goal has always been to encourage children to read by providing engaging text. She is currently working on the second book in the Englisha and David series which should be released in the late Fall of 2015.
