Halo Publishing Author Miguel Coppedge Meets with President ObamaHalo Publishing Author Miguel Coppedge Meets with President Obama
by BWW News Desk - Feb 22, 2016

Just like many ten-year old boys, Miguel Coppedge dreams of being a firefighter, an NBA point guard or an author. However, unlike most, Miguel is doing something about making his dreams a reality. Miguel has just published the first in a series of children's books featuring the super hero Kris Schmoove and his best friend Rico G. The boys discover their super powers and together they defeat 'The Destroyer!' 'I really like firefighters and super heroes,' said Miguel Coppedge, who wrote this first book, The Adventures of FireMan (http://halopublishing.com/1a-c/miguel-coppedge.html), when he was only eight years old. 'Superman is my favorite and I wanted to write a story that combined two of my favorite things.' Since writing his first book, Miguel has visited a variety of local churches, schools and daycare centers to read his book. He has visited the local fire station and read his book to two different fire chiefs. 'That was a great experience,' said Miguel. 'I'm afraid of heights but I got to put on a uniform and climb up the really tall ladder. It was awesome.' He is not only a local celebrity but recently had the opportunity to gain a new fan; one of worldwide notoriety. 'Miguel attended the Day of Service at our local Boys and Girls Club and was surprised with a visit from President Obama,' said Yolanda Coppedge, Miguel's proud mother. 'I got to sit by President Obama and even told him a joke,' Miguel shared. 'He laughed! It was great.' Shortly after President Obama's visit, Miguel sent a thank you package to the President and within a matter of weeks received an invitation to visit the White House. Miguel Coppedge took a signed copy of his book The Adventures of FireMan, which is dedicated in part to President Obama, to the White House. President Obama responded with a beautiful thank you note signed, 'Your friend.' 'Miguel has always been a fabulous child,' said his mother. 'When he sets his mind to something, he follows through. I didn't even know he was thinking about writing a story until he came to me one night with a notebook and said Here, Mom, I wrote a book.' 'We are so excited to have Miguel Coppedge as part of the Halo Publishing family,' said Lisa Umina, founder and President of Halo Publishing. 'He is an inspiration and we know that we are witnessing the beginning of his journey as a successful author.' Miguel has already written a sequel to The Adventures of Fireman and hopes to have it available in stores later this year. 'You are never too young to do anything,' Miguel told a group of children at a recent book reading. 'Always follow your dreams no matter what your age.' The Adventures of FireMan (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1612443729?keywords=miguel%20coppedge&qid=1444249282&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1) is available for $20.00. Three dollars from each book is donated to St. Ann's Infant Home (stanns.org) in Hyattsville, MD which is where Miguel lived before being adopted by Yolanda. Signed copies can purchased through his PayPal link - https://www.paypal.me/MiguelCoppedge for $23.00 total ($20 for book $3 for shipping) * Hardcover: 32 pages * Publisher: Halo Publishing International (September 25, 2015) * Language: English * ISBN-10: 1612443729 * ISBN-13: 978-1612443720 * Product Dimensions: 8.5 x 0.2 x 8.5 inches About Miguel Coppedge: Miguel is a 10-year old who loves school and learning new things. Miguel loves reading and writing. Miguel also loves video games and playing sports and basketball is his favorite. Most of all Miguel loves to have fun!
