Thanksgiving, a time to reflect on our blessings. In 2019, I co authored my first full length book, A Cry of the Heart: Human Trafficking, One Survivor's Story was published. There are many people to be thankful for in the success of this book.
I am grateful:
For Debra Rush who trusted me to write her story that has opened many eyes and shed light on Human Trafficking.
For my many mentors, my writing group, friends at Mount Hermon, and others who have encouraged me along the way.
For the authors and city leaders who believed in this project enough to endorse A Cry of the Heart.
For my husband, Larry, and his unwavering support.
For my daughter, Megan, my number one fan.
For my siblings and extended family. Your support in buying, reading, Facebook posts, and encouragement inspired me more than you can know. A shout out to my sister, Marsha, who is my number two fan.
For my many friends who supported the book through attending book signings and recommending it to others. And for the friends who helped when I needed them.
For Clovis Book Barn and Patio Cafe, where you can pick up a copy of A Cry of the Heart.
For Orloff's Jewelers for hosting the book signing in June.
For the many invitations for Debra or I to speak and allowing us to promote our book at your events.
For the supporters of Breaking the Chains who have helped in so many ways.
A special thank you to those who left reviews on Amazon and/or Facebook. Your words encouraged and Debra and I more than you realize. (It is not too late to leave a review on Amazon)
It has been a year to remember for this author. Thank you for being a part of it.
Happy Thanksgiving to each and everyone of you.
