Between writing projects, Michael Anthony Steele is thrilled to give presentations to schools and libraries across the country!
During his dynamic library presentation, Mr. Steele inspires the children to follow their dreams as he describes his amazing journey to becoming an author!
Children don't always realize that it takes many different writers to create stories for all their favorite characters. Having been fortunate enough to write for so many famous brands, Mr. Steele has discovered that the kids truly enjoy meeting the guy who writes some of those books and videos. And because of this built-in familiarity, the audience requires almost no prep time for his visit!
Mr. Steele's multimedia show not only features writing tips and techniques but also tells the story of how he became a writer—following an exciting path through a career in photography to blowing stuff up as a Special Effects Technician for film and television!
Best of all, the main theme of Mr. Steele's program is how the kids can say, "I Can Do That!" and be anything they want to be—just like he did!
Mr. Steele's appearances have been described as a "Rock-n-Roll Author Visit" since he delivers such an animated presentation packed with humor, audio/visual flash, loads of energy, and... a guitar!
