For me, he's been an inspiration. Through everything we've done, he [Antonio] came up with the program, Young Authors program.

Young Authors program is set up to give young girls and boys the opportunity to become authors.  Brandon Publishing curates their desires to publish a book from start to finish. Next Kellen laid out the following steps he and Antonio went through to publish the book.

From there we went through a whole process of putting the book together.  He had an idea of what he wanted the story to be.  We went through the marketing, editing, and he interviewed illustrators to see which pictures he wanted to use. ...He was very on point on that as well.

When asked what the book is about, Antonio replied,

The book is about three kids that go on a journey to Michigan Adventures, the most exciting theme park in the world. On this adventure, they each have a fear of losing their best friend and their tempers; which stands in the way of them going to Central Michigan.
