Young Brooklyn author

- Anaya Lee Willabus is reading "The Day Mohan Found His Confidence." There is a really good reason it's one her favorites: the 9-year-old wrote the book all by herself.

Anaya, who lives in Brooklyn, is currently the youngest published author in U.S. history to write a chapter book. Her mom Dimple says she always knew her daughter was special.

While Anaya is clearly not your average fourth grader, she loves to play with her dolls almost every day, hang out with her family, and play sport -- specifically karate and soccer.

Anaya is already working on her second book. She also dreams of being a teacher and, most importantly, an inspiration to others.
