About Us

Paint the Sky Purple Publishing (PSPP) publishes inspiring stories for children and adults. The goal for our  children’s stories is to pair  the imagination of students with learning STEM or STEAM subjects that encourage self-esteem, build relationships, and envision what they could accomplish when they grow up.

Let’s write more stories!


To use creative storytelling and positive statements that inspire students to use STEM and other subjects for developing career choices.


To encourage students and their support network of family, school, and community to develop a pathway to career success by:

1. Building upon the knowledge learned in science, technology, engineering, art, math, and other subjects to align with the student’s interest.

2. Writing and publishing real life scenarios that are relatable to students that help them see the possibilities for selecting careers.

3. Improving self-esteem and being motivated to overcome obstacles that may be barriers to success, such as low economic status, systemic racism, lack of technical resources, or difficult interrelationships.
