About the Author
K.A. Wright is a massage therapist, actor, performing artist, and now a first time author of his debut children's books, Perfect, Just Like You! and its companion, Perfect Just Like You Coloring Book/Workbook! Perfect, Just Like You! uses beautiful rhythmic poems to tackle low self-esteem, bullying, and self-hate with the intent of restoring confidence within children around the world while its companion uses a therapeutic approach by allowing children to freely express themselves and add color to their world as they see fit. He was inspired to write Perfect, Just Like You! when he learned his five year old cousin expressed discontent for dolls that looked like her. Recognizing that her reaction reflected the development of a harmful self-image, Wright wanted to write something that could help his cousin and other children understand the importance of self-love. Wright is fascinated by the stories and modes of self-expression of others. As a middle child who has been both the admiring younger sibling and protective older brother, he understands the importance of discovering and sharing one's voice. Wright has been expressing himself through poetry since middle school and later extended that self-expression through the crafts of massage therapy, acting, and performing arts. He believes that all art is life and it can be used as a vehicle to nurture the world in which we live and upon which we all have a great responsibility to make a positive impact.
