Author Spotlight: Courtney Montepara

“I wrote a children’s book titled Sam the Porcupine and His Quills of Courage that was published in December 2015. The story has a message for all ages and incorporates relevant issues children face today, such as the struggle of acceptance, the power of kindness, and the importance of recognizing the beauty within. I hope the message will positively impact the lives of others,” tells author Courtney Montepara.

“The story is about a porcupine named Sam who is teased based on his appearance. But when the lion escapes, the animals see Sam’s true character and learn a valuable lesson: You don’t have to be pretty, fast, or tall. The beauty within is the most important of all.”
