I had the privilege of speaking to students, parents and teachers at Holy Spirit School in San Jose, CA last week for their annual Author’s Night. I talked about having dreams, and how they can be like a hard boiled egg. They are hard to crack, messy to unpeel, but worth the effort. I shared how it’s always been my dream to be a writer, how it can be a difficult profession, messy, but worth the effort.
It was fun to meet Brian, one of the students, who heard about The Bronze Dagger from a friend who had come to one of my book signings earlier this year. He told me he loved it and can’t wait until the next one is out. I told him The Alabaster Jar should be out around July of this year, and that he can read the first chapter of it on my webpage. I relished the excitement I saw in his face. This is why I write!
