“Crushin’ It” with their book: LPHS sisters become first-time published authors

   A love for reading and a driving creative instinct has led two La Porte High School sisters to publish their first novel.
   Juniors Alexandrea (pictured on the right) and Brittney (on the left) Sanders have recently published their first novel, “Crushin’ It,” with Christian Faith Publishing.
   Their mother, Robin Sanders, said the twins just turned 17 in October and the book was accepted for publication during their sophomore year at LPHS. “They love, love to read and this to them was a natural extension. They both are very creative.  They not only write books, but write songs/lyrics as well,” Robin said.
   Brittney and Alexandrea, while not working on their books, are also involved at the high school with the Spanish Club and as well as the Academic Super Bowl. They also volunteer weekly at LaPorte County Historical Museum.
   The girls are even at work on other manuscripts. Brittney’s projects include “Waiting for King,” “Finding Grace,”  “Bleeding Hearts,”  “Worlds Apart,” and “Life.” Alexandrea is working on “Learning to Love,” “The Risk of Falling,” “Before You Left,” “Past,” “Crossroads Together:  Battle of the Bands,” “Atlas,” and “Little Things.”

      Mrs. Ohime,

      They will be having a book signing at the LaPorte County Historical Society Museum in April. When I have a definite date, I will let you know.
