As a children’s author, my goal is to inspire children with stories that are also entertaining. My non-fiction book is an award-winning autobiography called Tails of Sweetbrier. It’s a story true story that will inspire you to do your best. It’s full of excitement with some humor, tragedy, disappointment and victories. Tails of Sweetbrier won the silver medal in the Feathered Quill Book awards this year. I’d like it to encourage you so that you know anything is possible and you can win against huge odds. If you read the book, you’ll find out what my dad did that changed my life. Nothing would be the same without his decision. I’d love to know your thoughts on it. What was your favorite part of this non-fiction book?
