Kentrell Martin is the President and creator of the Shelly’s Adventures series. He’s also the author of many of the books in the series. Growing up with a Deaf brother, Kentrell saw how the world viewed Deaf people. He created Shelly’s Adventures so that he could introduce kids and parents to American Sign Language and Deaf culture. Kentrell sees Shelly’s Adventures as a company that will play a part in helping bridge the gap between the Deaf and hearing world. He envisions Shelly’s Adventures as a company that will be a household name.
“When you think of companies and names like Disney, Scholastic, Dr. Suess, I want you to think of Shelly’s Adventures. A new age company that found a way to introduce millions to a language and culture in a fun and educational way.” — Kentrell Martin
Kentrell sees movies, live-action plays, cartoons, and theme parks in the future for Shelly’s Adventures.
