When I first published Growing Up Neighbors, I have to be honest that I didn’t think things through. I kind of self-taught the process and went with what I thought would be just fine. Let’s just say I was naïve when it came to selling books 🙂

Having now been a part of a wonderful, extremely supportive group of authors, I have learned SO much. And that’s an understatement!

I wanted to share with everyone that recently I got the spotlight on a blog by C.L. Wells. She’s an amazing person, a Jane-of-all-trades if you will. She’s literally dabbled with everything.
