We first met 18-year-old health activist, speaker and The HAPPY Organization CEO Haile Thomas when she was honored as one of the influential teens in TigerBeat and Instagram’s 19under19 awards this past year. But now, she’s taking to Instagram to share some exciting news with all her fans and followers!

Haile is teaming up with publishing house Harper Collins to create a vegan cookbook sprinkled with life lessons she’s learned in the past 18 years and we are so excited for her! Set to be released Isn 2020, we have no doubt that Haile will spend the next year putting her heart and soul into this book – titled “Lively” – so that everyone can be inspired by this young mogul.

{ big announcement } I’ve been in between laughing, happy crying, and smiling for no reason because this is what 8 year old haile only dreamed of 😭 from reading stories about magical worlds & being inspired to create my own… to putting my brain on paper to help work through the craziness of growing up. And discovering cookbooks that made me want to eat the pages… Writing and reading have been essential to my life & to my growth as a human. ✧ In a way, my IG has become a virtual book…sharing all that I’ve been enamored by since I was little — Food, life, and all its endless possibilities. W/o the books that have been in my life, I don’t believe I would’ve ever been so comfortable with using this platform in this way. I wouldn’t be who I am or do what I do today. ✧ With that said, I AM BEYOND EXCITED to officially announce that I have joined the @harpercollinsus + @harpercollinsuk family, under the @williammorrowbooks imprint!!!!— the same publishing house that is home to classics, the books (like The Alchemist, To Kill a Mockingbird, Bridge to Terabithia) that have inspired me throughout my entire life. While this is all so surreal, I am ready. This will be more than a vegan cookbook. Not just my recipes…but my heart & soul, my life, and what I’ve learned living it, all wrapped up into a beautiful book, just for you!!!!! ___ And I truly mean this, without each and everyone of you, I wouldn’t be here. You all are some of the most amazing, loving, and uplifting people I know. I am so blessed to have you all in my life. I am overjoyed to create this book for you. — And my family, I would’ve never even believed this could all be possible w/o the unconditional love + support they have given me. The words my mom would tell me everyday before school to “be a leader, not a follower”….that I am enough, that I am capable of anything. Thank you for acknowledging the power I had within me, even before I did. And to my lit agent @sallyekus & @thelisaekusgroup, thank you for working hard for this with me & believing in me and my vision 💓💓 I’m so excited to make magic with my HC dream team. __ LETS GOOO!!! “Lively” by Haile Thomas, dropping early 2020 ✨✨✨✨✨💫
