Stephanie Danine Singleton is an Akron, Ohio native. She has been fortunate to have shared her passions as an author, playwright and hairstylist on both East & West Coast. Her compassion for books that motivate and empower was Stephanie's inspiration for writing this compelling story - and making her directorial debut with a short film that she also wrote and produced for the book. In addition to her writing credits, Stephanie released her first children's book titled "The Adventures of Ryan and Riley & Mr. Teddy bear" available in the English or Spanish language. As a bonus for young readers, Stephanie has written and recorded an upbeat theme song for the book titled "Hey Mr. Teddy" she's sure most children will enjoy singing and dancing along to. When not being creative, Stephanie enjoys exploring the world and spending time with her family and close friends.
