Michael Anthony Steele - Author & Screenwriter
Michael Anthony Steele is an author and screenwriter who has written for multiple major entertainment and educational properties! From WISHBONE and Barney & Friends to a book series spinoff from the Night at the Museum franchise. He has authored more than 110 BOOKS featuring some of children's favorite characters including: Shrek, Scooby-Doo, LEGO City, Batman, Superman, Wishbone, Hardy Boys, Penguins of Madagascar, Night at the Museum and many more! Between writing projects, Michael Anthony Steele is thrilled to give presentations to schools and libraries across the country! During his dynamic show, 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!

Mr.Steele came to our school for an author visit in April for grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade. The students that saw his presentation talked about Mr. Steele so much after the visit that our 4th and 5th grade students were upset that they didn't get to see his presentation so we brought him back in May for them. In May, he also did a writer's workshop with our 3rd grade students and it was very informative for our students. Mr. Steele was AWESOME both times he visited. He is very professional and is so entertaining for the students AND the teachers! We were able to purchase a book for every student and he signed all 450 of them! The process of booking him and communicating with him before the visit was so easy. He was very flexible with our scheduling of his presentations during the school day. You will not be disappointed in booking him for your school.

We had such a fun day with Michael Anthony Steele! All of our kiddos were entertained by his presentation....from Pre-K up to 4th grade! And I LOVED the motivational message that he left them with... "I CAN DO THAT!" He inspired children to not only pursue their love of writing if they have that, but to pursue anything that they love. I would definitely recommend this author visit to anyone!

Michael Anthony Steele shared with our students a great message that left all of them believing in themselves and that they can do whatever they choose to do in life! Mr. Steele shared his program to 2 groups of students, K-2 and 3-5 and each program was tailored for the age groups! We hope to have him (and his wife Becky and Virgil) come back and visit us again in the future! Thanks Mr. Steele!

This was Mr. Steele's second performance at Rice Elementary and will not be his last. His message is simple yet powerful "I can do that!". His school presentation is dynamic one; more than enough for this millennial generation to stay entertained. Mr. Steele writes books that motivate students to read! Our district held an inaugural LitCon! event and Mr. Steele was the evenings star attraction. This event drew in thousands of participants and he handled the crowds with a friendly smile as a genuine entertainer.
