It's great to be an author!

So March and come and gone in a rush.  Tax season is over and spring weather is in full swing.  I'm busy setting up a domain name and hope to have a website up soon.  In the meantime, I have signed up to do a few events.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to speak to members of the Youth Advocate Program in Camden County, NJ.  All the girls present had been given copies of A Beautiful Girl to read in advance.  The response was tremendous.  They loved the story, the characters, and the way the main character discovered her inner beauty in the midst of an abusive environment.  Some of these girls could even relate to Sara and were grateful for the happiness they felt after reading the book.

These statements filled my heart and brought me close to tears.  I'm so glad that my novel can help heal the hurt so many experience today.
I look forward to working with the volunteers of this program in the future.
