Former Childrens Lighthouse student Casey Giles releases debut novel Indifferents
RICHMOND, Texas – They say children are the future, but Casey Giles can’t wait that long. At only 13, she published her debut novel, “Indifferents”, a Young Adult dystopian adventure novel which is currently for sale in paperback and e-book at Amazon.
Giles began attending Childrens Lighthouse Learning Center at Grand Mission, a values based early education school, when she was 2 years old. Casey’s mother, Lilibeth Giles, believes the curriculum at Childrens Lighthouse helped push her towards her passions, reading and writing.
Childrens Lighthouse puts a heavy emphasis on reading in its curriculum, even requiring students to read for a certain time everyday. So, from the young age of three, Casey was constantly discovering new books and enhancing her already impressive vocabulary. In 3rd grade she started writing. For years, Casey was consistently reading and writing short stories, but in 6th grade she became serious about completing her manuscript. By age 13, she had published her first novel.
“Casey was always a vibrant spirit and curious student while attending Childrens Lighthouse,” said Allie Lam, owner of Childrens Lighthouse at Grand Mission. “We are so proud Casey was able to achieve her dreams at such a young age.”
The mission of Childrens Lighthouse is to connect families together with independent owners in an effort to enrich communities through a relationship based on safety and trust. Childrens Lighthouse does this by partnering with parents in developing children with character values and physical wellness in a S.T.R.E.A.M.℠ enriched learning environment. Additionally, franchisees across the network are actively involved with their local communities and regularly give back through volunteering, donations and more.
Casey attended Childrens Lighthouse from 2008 to 2013. She is currently working on a sequel to “Indifferents”.
