Why I started BTH Creations LLC: Books are important because I believe reading, unlike watching TV, actively engages the mind. A well-written book can inform, inspire, intrigue, or excite the reader. The pages of a well-written story can transport you to foreign or fantasy lands, tickle you to the point of a good belly laugh, and educate you about various subjects. There is just so much useful information to be found in books, and reading is good brain exercise!
I started my own publishing company because I wanted creative freedom. It is important to me to release Nia & the Numbers Game according to my vision. I felt it was important to show the full spectrum of Nia’s life— as I’ve written it—from early adolescence through her young adulthood and marriage. I want the target audience to see what’s possible. For the adults who will vet my work before allowing their daughters and students to read it, I hope they will recognize themselves in some of the scenarios and visualize a bright future for the young ladies they guide. I look forward to hearing from you. – Dr. Kela
