“Reach for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”
On this writing journey, I’ve landed among generous souls who have read my work, pushed me to stretch my writing muscles, and waved pom poms of encouragement.
And boy, are these stars! So many published authors, with more books to come!
