I caught the writing bug in fifth grade when my teacher encouraged me by announcing to the class, "One day, Laurie will be an author." I hid those words in my heart. The years passed before the dream was realized in 2009, when "Journey To Forgiveness" was released by White Rose Publishing. http://www.whiterosepublishing.com/
Since, I've added an ebook, "Jonquils In The Snow," and "Over The Coals," a novella in "A Summer Collection" by Victory Tales Press, plus "Severed Hearts," a novella in "A Sweet Christmas Collection," also by Victory Tales Press. These stories can be viewed at Smashwords.com
My desire is to encourage other writers to fulfill their dreams, and finally, to leave a legacy through my writing. One of hope, joy, humor, and healing.
Who knew those words spoken by a fifth-grade teacher would echo down through the years, never to be forgotten, and would finally come true for one timid little girl?
