The Inspirational Story of “Charlie” Behind the Book

Charlie Takes an Adventure is a children’s book I wrote when I was only 11 years old.   My teacher gave us the task to write a book as part of a yearlong Language Arts project during my sixth grade.  At the end of the school year, my teacher returned our manuscripts in “hardcover”.  Moments after receiving my book, I thought to myself, “Someday, I’m going to get this book published for REAL!”

Over the next 13 years, I would often say to friends, family, and co-workers, “You know my book, Charlie Takes an Adventure, the one I wrote when I was only 11 years old?  It’s going to be published someday!”

As I quickly found out, getting this book published was not going to be an easy task!  Many people would often try and discourage me by saying:

 

“Haley, you are way too young to publish a book!”

“Haley, it’s way too hard to publish a book!”

“Haley, it costs too much money to publish a book!”

Luckily I was blessed with one ex-boyfriend that really inspired me… he said….

You aren’t smart enough to publish a book?”

thanks

Two years later, Charlie Takes an Adventure launched at the middle school I attended when I was in 6th grade, Logger’s Run Middle School!!! At this event, I gave a motivational talk to 400+ people in the auditorium, which included; students, parents, faculty, and the Superintendent of the Palm Beach County Schools.   Haley Marguerite Enterprises is in the process of developing a “Charlie” penguin stuffed animal, clothing line and “Charlie” penguin cookies, that will be in addition to the book.

Since the launch of my book, I have visited 1000’s of schools throughout America.  I have been invited to inspire; Elementary, Middle, High Schools, and Colleges through my “Dream Big” motivational event.   I have also been selected to be keynote speaker for the Girl Scouts of America, as well as, Keller-Williams Real Estate Investment agents.

 As Charlie is approaching the exit of Happy World, he spots a sign that reads, “Fortune teller, all wishes granted.” He speaks with the fortune teller and tells her what has been going on and why he decided to leave his hometown. Charlie is moved by an old Slovakian proverb told to him by the fortune teller.  Enlightened by the proverb, Charlie comes to the realization about the true meaning of life and understands what he must do in order to be happy.

**SPECIAL FEATURE**     Charlie’s book has a “This book belongs to ___________” page!!    If you would like a name added to that page and personalized message from the author, Haley Marguerite, please type the name of the person receiving the book, in the “Add special instructions to the seller” section.  This is located under the “Contact Information” section.

Press the, “Buy Now” to continue.  Thank you for your support.  Get excited….Charlie Takes an Adventure to Massachusetts will launch 2018!!! Please tell ALL your friends about “Charlie!” 

Warmest Regards,

Haley Marguerite xoxo
