About the Author
Emily V. Bastien was one of the youngest published authors in US history when she released her first book - Aqua Tales - at seven years old. Writing a book at any age is a significant accomplishment, but in an era where one in four American children grows up without learning how to read, Emily, is one of a kind.
Emily is an avid reader who loves to create her own stories. Her passion and persistence made her first book - Aqua Tales - a reality. Emily released her second book, The Fearless Fantabulous Five, in 2018. It is a collection of five original short stories. The stories share a common message of courage, hope, and faith. They empower readers to live a life of fearlessness.
Being a published author and international speaker, Emily proves that age is not an obstacle when kids are determined to achieve their goals. She continues to share her love for books with kids at schools, churches and conferences throughout the United States, Europe and Caribbean Islands. Emily inspires others to read more, write more, and find their voice so they can change the world.
