Stephanie Mitchell of Jackson, Shares Inspiring Message with debut Children's Book

At the age of 52 Stephanie Mitchell of Jackson, MS is celebrating a new milestone in her life: becoming a published author.

"I can't believe this day is really here," she says, reflecting on the time she has worked to make something like this a reality. "It feels good to see this dream come true."

BELLA'S DANCE LESSON is the children's book Mitchell wrote with media personality and author Cyrus Webb of Brandon, MS. The story is about a young girl named Bella who wants to do well at a dance audition, but when things take a turn will she be able to pick herself up and keep trying?

"I'm so proud of Stephanie and the story of Bella," says Webb, 39. "This story is going to inspire not only young kids about what they can do even when things don't always go according to plan, but will reinforce for adults as well why they should never give up on their goals and dreams." Webb is also
the author of the inspirational book WORDS I CHOOSE TO LIVE BY, the children's book AUBREY'S WORLD and has co-authored the children's books A.J. AND THE TALENT SHOW with Herschel Dixon of Louisville, KY and STANDRIA'S BIG DREAM with Stanley Clark of Pickens, MS.

BELLA'S DANCE LESSON is available on Amazon here:

Stephanie has already been visiting schools and after school programs in the Jackson area sharing the message of Bella.

Her message to anyone out there with a dream? "Don't let anyone tell you what you can't do. With hard work anything is possible."
