This journey as I chase my dream is absolutely amazing. I know that I have only thrown one small drop into the water with “All the Little Things,” but I feel the possibilities spreading out in ever-widening rings…like the pebbles I tossed across the lake as a child, striving to get more skips in every time, watching the circles spreading each time a wide, flat stone skimmed the surface. No matter what happens with my novels, I am striving to touch others along the way, acting as a mentor, providing encouragement, sharing in the accomplishments of others. As I strive to pay it forward, I am a firm believer in “what goes around comes around.” Each action has an equal reaction…and my small steps forward now are sure to grow bigger day by day until I move on in leaps and bounds. Are you dreaming big right now? Start with a tiny stone, make a wish, and toss it in the pond. Watch your hopes as they take on a life of their own and grow.
