Myron Campbell, Author, Speaker, Entrepreneur
I'm an author that brings characters to life that many children can relate to.
Myron Campbell is an author, speaker, entrepreneur, and producer for film and television. Born in Queens, NY in 1974, Myron’s family moved to South Carolina when he was in seventh grade. There he completed high school and a little college, playing lots of baseball and aspiring to make it to the big leagues one day. His passion for the entertainment industry, however, was just too strong, and he eventually moved back to New York, taking a starting position in the music industry. He eventually would become a General Manager of a label under Sony Music. After a while, he decided to go looking for bigger fish to fry, founding his own advertising firm with some colleagues. He operated for around two years before relocating to Virginia Beach, where he got married and started a family.
Myron’s first book is titled The Adventures of Melvin Walker: Melvin Goes to the Ballpark. A diehard baseball fan after all these years, Melvin Goes to the Ballpark is one of many bedtime stories that Myron has told his children over the years, putting it into writing at the encouragement of his wife. Melvin is a city kid who goes on adventures, and along the way, he always learns a lesson or two about values and decision making. His second book titled The Adventures of Melvin Walker: Melvin Learns How To Swim was released on March 24th, 2017. Myron is also Founder and Executive Director of Differences Foundation, a nonprofit aimed at engaging at-risk youth in literacy, healthy living, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math).
Myron, his loving wife, daughter, and two sons still live in Virginia Beach today. Myron writes often and still puts on his baseball mitt nearly as much as he did when he was a teenager.
The most important thing the author wants readers to gain from his books:
The most important thing is it's okay to be different. Everyone has there own path in life to follow. It's up to you to figure that out. Who you take with you on your adventure is totally up to you. Always play fair, don't give up, and finish what you start.
Why the author is an authority on the subject of his books:
Myron Campbell is an author, speaker, and entrepreneur. He writes a series of children's books that are for ages 5-10. He’s figured out a way to teach diversity, good morals, and education in all his books. He brings to life characters that many of us can relate to. His many years of volunteering with youth programs make him a sought after voice to guide today's young minds. This is the reason why he started Differences Foundation.
