A Children's Chapter Series
By Taunya T.D. Said

     Meet       The Author!

“It all started on a slow night on my part-time job as a telemarketer. I was bored to pieces, finding it hard to sit still, trying to convince patrons to take a survey that not even I would be interested in taking. In between calls, I started thinking about things I did as a child and compared them with the things my daughter does and I started to write. My daughter and I are known to be smart alecks. Within two weeks, I had completed my first book. I laughed my whole way through it!”

Taunya T.D. Said can capture your attention with her compelling stories. Since childhood, she has been known for her creative spark in everything she touches. Taunya can ignite a child’s mind to help them to see all things are possible if you just believe.

Taunya works for the United States Federal Government and has her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business. Her writing experience ranges from technical writing of government policies to a former local recording artist who expresses lyrically through years of songwriting.

Taunya won the creative communication Poetry contest, with her poem “My Impression” which was published in “Celebrate! Poets Speak Out.” Taunya’s childlike heart overpowers adversity and materializes positive vibes. Her personality overwhelms you with pure laughter as she draws you in chapter by chapter with her adventurous stories. She calls her work, “Fiction based on facts”.  With her clever and snappy comebacks, it’s no wonder she created Smart Alec Alex, The Series.


A Lesson within
a Laugh


All children of different ethnicities want to see themselves represented when searching for a sense of belonging. During my childhood and my daughter’s childhood, the options were limited. Today, there are books that display the differences in some cultures, more than others.

Taunya T.D. Said created the Smart Alec Alex Chapter Book Series to give children a fun series that relates to the antics in their normal everyday lives. The series focuses on life lessons that help in various areas of a child’s coming of age and assist the child in handling various circumstances.

The series frees the child’s mind from the peer pressure of everyday challenges, especially as they transition from Elementary to Middle school. SMART ALEC ALEX, The Series is filled with many LESSONS within a LAUGH!
