My name is Jason Avery, and I am a Mental Health Counseling Graduate student. I have a passion for helping children in need. My stories are inspired by children I know personally. I want to teach children moral values with my books. I enjoy drawing, painting, writing, and education. I don't want to be a huge successful writer, I just want to make a difference in the lives of children. My favorite book is "Thank You, Mr. Falker". I want to encourage students the way Patricia Polacco has with her amazing stories.
