In the Press
Most authors say they have dreamed their entire lives of becoming published.
Yet I never would have believed it had anyone predicted it.
Not when I was a struggling first grader taking reading classes, and summer school.
Not on lazy Sunday afternoons when I was the only family member not happily lost in a book.
Not when I was an eighth grader sitting at the table in tears over my first major writing assignment.
Not when I was in speed reading class, fighting to keep up.
Not when I'd never read a book for pleasure until I was fourteen and discovered Janette Oke.
Nope. I would never have believed it.
If you've ever had a dream
or even if you've never dreamed a dream:
you just never sometimes hardly ever know....
