Famous Mormon Authors
Briana Walker Mormon
Briana Walker is an author, speaker, model and spokesperson for many different companies.
On a bright California Sunday afternoon Briana Walker was driving on the 55 Freeway when she fainted at the wheel of her black Honda Accord, hitting the cement median at seventy-five miles per hour, leaving her wheelchair bound. A young, aspiring dancer, just 23 years old at the time of her accident, Briana was determined to create an amazing life in spite of her new circumstances.
One year after her accident Briana became the first female ever to be featured on the cover of Mobility Management magazine. Shortly thereafter Briana became the Krypto Girl for Colours Wheelchairs. Her images have now been used globally on buses and billboards to change the face of disability.
Briana now enjoys skydiving, surfing, snow skiing, wakeboarding, competing in triathlons, bungee jumping and most of all – dancing.
Briana released her first book “Dance Anyway” in 2006 and she is currently working on a second book. In 2007 Briana became the new spokesperson for Overstock.com. Her television commercials and print ads have been seen all around the world.
She is also an Ambassador for Life Rolls On and Ralph’s Riders, non-profit organizations that exist to be a grassroots resource that provides hope and is an advocate on behalf of young people whose lives have been affected by spinal cord injury.
Speaking to groups all over the country, Briana Walker shares her contagious rebellion and inspiring courage with thousands – teaching them the principle – no matter what life throws at you – choose to dance anyway!
