Buford, GA (PRWEB) February 23, 2014
It’s no secret that many people struggle with growing up. Whether that person can’t make friends or gets bullied by others, a sense of direction at a young age can go a long way. Author Leo Phoenix hopes to give children a sense of direction and assurance, in his new book “Sparkfire: The Star Whose Shine Was Lost” (published by AuthorHouse).
“Sparkfire” takes readers off of Earth and into space, where the Sun watches over the planets and stars like children. One of the stars, Sparkfire, has been feeling rather glum lately, however, and is on the verge of burning out forever. The Sun takes Sparkfire on a journey of self-discovery, teaching him that the fire he wishes to keep burning has been inside him all along.
An excerpt from “Sparkfire”:
“Let the good that is in you bloom like a flower...and no matter how much darkness surrounds you, your shine will give it light.”
Phoenix hopes to teach children that they should be proud of who they are, and fill them with courage and strength.
About the Author
Leo Phoenix was born in Decatur, Ga. At the age of seven, his parents divorced, leaving him to live with his mother. While he describes his social environment at a young age as not conducive to a child’s growth, he attributes much of his spirituality and character to his mother and her spirituality.
