8 Year Old Boy Writes a Book and Fights Modern Day Slavery
Luke contacted The Exodus Road by sending a note that read: “Hi, my name is Luke Meier. I am 8 years old and wrote a book that I published on Amazon (The Portal). I will give you 50% of all proceeds from the book so you can help kids!”
Thus far, he has made $20 profit from his science fiction novel which is illustrated by his 12 year old sister, Leah. Luke has already made a $10 donation to The Exodus Road via Paypal.
The books storyline was created by Luke and his father, Joe, who had a dream to write a book together. Each night before bed, Luke would act as story teller, creating the plot and characters of The Portal while Joe listened and recorded his son’s creative ideas. About four months later, The Portal was self-published on Amazon and made available for purchase.
Luke’s book is a science fiction story about a young boy and his dog who get swept away through a portal into another universe. It is the first book in a planned trilogy.
The Exodus Road asked Luke how he felt when he learned about children being stuck in slavery. He answered: “I’m sad. It’s just not fair.”
