Valerie Kote-Tawia has been writing captivating stories since she discovered her gift early in her youth. A former Alternative School teacher, she walked away from the security of that job to pursue her true passion: writing. Valerie has managed to merge the expression of her gift with the burden on her heart for youth; creating compelling work that entertains and transforms lives.
The success of her first self-produced and directed teen stage play, Would You Be Left, propelled her on the journey of creating the teen book series, Set Apart. Set Apart chronicles the drama-filled lives of five friends as their experiences inspire them to reset the "norm" and persuade others to live as they were created and called...set apart. It is a series about tough decisions, mistakes, second chances and forgiveness. It’s a series that keeps it real (and right). There is no topic off-limits.
Valerie's vision is to revolutionize the entertainment industry by captivating young audiences with books, magazines, TV and film that promotes virtuous lifestyles of high self-respect, self-worth and moral integrity. This series launches the next step in the fulfilling of her mission to create clean, clever and stirring work that compels youth to live set apart and inspire others to follow. She hopes to use the book series to fund and propel teen centered stage and film projects as well as create a platform to encourage youth to break away from the crowd and LIVE SET APART!
