Julius Faison, a 12-year-old African American boy from New York City, enjoys reading adventurous books so much that he has written his own book about a Black superhero.

When the pandemic struck and he transitioned to virtual learning, he and his mom began working on creative storytelling to further develop writing skills. One story led to the publication of his first book, Jewels and Stella: The Secret, which tells the story of Jewels, also a 12-year-old boy, his friends, and his pet bird who are fighting evil to save the world.

Julius attends Durham Nativity School and lives in North Carolina with his mom, dad, brother and a host of animals, including Stella, their pet parrot. In addition to reading, he enjoys playing soccer, chess, gaming, and spending time with his family.

Parents Improve Your Children's Reading Skills


Rosa Higgs, a teacher from Berkeley, California, who has proven why phonics instruction matters. Her phonics workbook series, entitled Read in 40 Hours or Less, are designed to help Black students learn to read well and beyond grade level in less than 40 hours of direct instruction.

Across the country, students are experiencing a K-12 crisis in reading skills. In the state of California, millions of dollars are spent every year on education, but students and teachers are overwhelmed by COVID-19 and distance learning and the lack of improved reading skills for many vulnerable Black students proves it.

The coronavirus was a test of America’s ability to provide quality and equitable education to all students. The virus wrecked the school system with unfathomable momentum highlighting known disparities of Black students' access to computers, the internet, trauma, and basic needs such as food and adequate shelter. The Read in 40 Hours or Less workbook series can take schools from inadequate to extraordinary by improving reading skills for our vulnerable Black and Brown students.

"It was exciting to publish this book. To be honest, when my mom said the story could turn into a book, I was skeptical but I knew she had published before.

Each day we added to the story and we worked with a team to bring the book to a reality through Kindle Direct Publishing. When the actual finished book was delivered to our house, I was very proud because of my accomplishment but also because the superhero is Black.

I love Greek mythology and usually, the characters are not Black so it is nice to see a character on the cover with brown skin! I plan to donate some of the profit from the sales of my book to my school, Durham Nativity which is a boys’ school with predominately Black and Latinx boys.

I also plan to save and invest in new soccer equipment and in coding technology. My dream is for the book to be made into an animated movie produced by a Black company like Tyler Perry productions!”

About Jewels and Stella: The Secret When immersed in an online video game, a sixth-grade Black boy named Jewels Washington receives a call from a stranger. The stranger then reveals that he hacked his way into Jewel’s computer to have a conversation with him. But the things that the stranger tells him leave him completely perplexed and he is forced to question the nature of things around him.

Later, while returning from a school soccer match, Jewels, his younger brother, and his best friend get attacked by several mysterious people. Their eyes and skin glowed red in the dark.

As they faced certain death against the inhuman-looking monsters, a strange flying object saves them and vanishes. Slowly mysteries around Jewel’s apparent peaceful life begin unfolding, revealing the unthinkable truth behind his strange blackouts and the secrets of his parents.

But the real question is, could he ever hope to protect himself and the people he cares about from his schoolmate who declares himself as a powerful warrior from another planet? Read along as Jewels demonstrates his bravery to alter the very fate of mankind from extraterrestrial threats!

Jewels and Stella: The Secret is now available on Amazon.
