Where Characters Rule the World….
MyHBPBooks promotes reading by offering entertaining literature and products to children, teens, and adults featuring its signature reading, Debbie and Jamal, logo. It is home to the story “The Love of Debbie La’treck” and is named after its creator Habeeba Bekka Pasha.
Habeeba is a Special Education teacher for Chicago Public Schools. She holds an MA in Education and a BA in Psychology. While working toward her advanced degree, writing offered a way to better convey her thoughts and served as an escape from school work. Her goal is to create entertaining literature that encourages students and adults to develop a passion for reading. While most of her books have a child or young adult as the main character, the themes, like parental involvement, making sound choices, and learning from mistakes draw from topics adults hope to instill in their children.
To see more of Habeeba’s work or to contact her, visit her at Google+, Twitter, about.me, Goodreads, or at myhbpbooks@gmail. She also has a blog Rainy Days: Becoming Published where she talks about her experiences becoming published. It’s very funny especially the posts where she talks about Hootsuite and Little Richard.
