Lance Brazelton is a 22 year-old Award-winning author, publisher, illustrator, poet, and motivational speaker.
In April of 2016, Lance wrote, illustrated, and self-published his first book titled “What Daddy Didn’t Know” Letters of a Fatherless Child. It serves as a memoir of his childhood, detailing how he overcame life-changing challenges while on the verge of becoming a statistic.
In May of 2017, "What Daddy Didn't Know" won the gold medal in the 11th Annual National Indie Excellence Awards; in the category for autobiography. The National Indie Excellence Awards is a National book competition for independent publishers; winning this award is one of the highest honors a self-publisher can achieve.
Lance is now pursuing a career in motivational speaking, so he can embody his writing by presenting speeches to audiences that relate to his topics. He speaks at schools, churches, events, conferences, and organization meetings.
His main target audience is at-risk youth, because he knows what it’s like to grow up in an environment surrounded by circumstances. His motive for pursuing this type of work is because kids are our future, so it’s important to inspire their young minds.
