A Dream Come True

I've always had what many people consider to be a "creative mind". I can remember as far back as Elementary School when I would write stories and poems that prompted my teachers to want to learn more about my home life. I would write about what I saw that I liked and what I saw that I thought should be different. I mixed a little of the truth and a lot of my imagination. The pictures I drew and stories I told were wise far beyond my years. Needless to say, this caused great concern.

As an adult, I still have a lot of creativity pent up inside of me waiting to be released. I still look at the world around me and desire to make a positive impact. I used to get excited and talk as long as I had someone to listen. Now I write. By His Stripes We are Healed, my first novel is a result of this pent up creativity and my outlook on life.

I've always dreamed of being a published author and now that dream has come to pass. I thank God for it. It's truly a dream come true.
