This afternoon, my first book, Peanut’s Great Escape, was published on Amazon. It has been eight months since I started writing and illustrating the book and a lifetime of dreaming about being an author. I am so very excited to finally have it available to others. It is so great that people might read what I wrote and maybe like it a little.
I have been writing for what seems like my whole life. In fifth grade, my teacher gave our class plain white books to write our own stories in and I still have mine. She told me at the end of the year to never stop writing. I can tell her now that I have never lost that part of me.
This is my year! This is my life! This is my book!
