New Author on the Rise

I met this aspiring artist while attending the National Book Club Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. He made a positive impression on me and it seems he has a lot to say. I wish him much success.

Sebastian K. Young is a successful entrepreneur and author from Beaumont, Texas. At the early age of two his mother was tragically murdered and he was sent to live with his grandparents. Although his grandparents were older in age, they possessed a wealth of knowledge. Anecdotal stories about relationships and life choices coupled with tough punishments carved out a determined leader, mentor, and parent.
Growing up, the death of his mother haunted him. He would hear voices at night, see her murder in dreams, and relent the days that he was unable to hug her as a teenager. Then, after his grandparents passed, he determined to turn his pain into motivation. Every trial and experience became a springboard. Sebastian has kept his family first throughout his life and made tough sacrifices to ensure they received all that they have ever wanted or needed. Success is not found in his bank account but in the smiles on his three daughter’s faces, Christian, Asia, and Alaysia.
Sebastian is a partner with Al Colbert and Ja Ja Ball of Colbert/Ball Tax services and Colbert/Ball Entertainment. Together they have toured Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly, The O’Jays, Gerald Levert, and several stage plays from writers such as David Payton, Je'Caryous Johnson, and Michael Matthews. Sebastian has also hosted events with Charlie Wilson, Steve Harvey, DL Hughley, Mo' Nique, Cedric the Entertainer, and Mike Epps.
Sebastian believes that writing this book is only the beginning of what God has planned for him and eagerly anticipates the future. Visit his website and purchase his book at
