About the Set Apart Book Series

The Beginning...from the stage to the page

Some of the attendees of the stage play, Would You Be Left?, by author, Valerie Kote-Tawia.

Valerie Kote-Tawia, an author, playwright, director and producer, has been writing captivating stories since she discovered her gift early in her youth. The successful, self-produced and directed, first-run of the teen stage play Would You Be Left, propelled her on the journey of creating the young adult book series, Set Apart.

Her vision is to use media and entertainment as a vehicle to inspire youth to Discover their purpose early, Pursue their passions now and Become everything that God has created them to be! 

She is on her mission to create clean, clever and stirring work that compels youth to live set apart and inspire others to follow.

This is only the beginning!

Message from the Author

Valerie Kote-Tawia with the 2015 cast of, Would You Be Left, the stage play.

This has been a faith-walk from the start. From putting on the first production with ZERO dollars in the bank to now having two outstanding and well-attended shows under my belt--not to mention the well-received launch of "Would You Be Left?", Book 1 of the Set Apart YA series--I am beyond ecstatic to see what God will do next! (Screens!)

While on my mission to create clean, clever and stirring work that compels youth to live set apart--falling in LOVE with our Creator and His plan for their lives then boldly and passionately living out their mission, inspiring others to do the same-- I will not limit myself to stages or pages. There are truly even GREATER things to come. I'm looking forward to branching out into all aspects of media. So, stay connected--LIKE us on FB and FOLLOW on IG and Twitter.

I'd love for you to join me on this journey. Know that the ABSOLUTE BEST is yet to come!
