Throwback to my first Indigo book signing in Regina less than two years ago. This was back when I only had one book to my name, and was excited and incredibly nervous to be setup in INDIGO! Now there are three books, and soon to be four, five, and six books. To say this author adventure has been quite the unexpected ride would be an wild understatement. ———————————————————————————
I truly never expected to love writing and creating books this much. For most of my life I believed that I was not creative, so never in a million years did I expect to be using my imagination and creativity at all, let alone to share messages that matter. I still can’t believe how inspired I feel by speaking to children in schools. I love teaching them how to write their own books, about their inner compass and the power of their minds. I’m sad that so many events were canceled this spring, but I’m excited to reschedule. In the past two years, I’ve had the pleasure of speaking to over 2400 students & teachers! ❤️
There have been many hiccups, bumps in the road, and full on brick walls along the way. Each book comes with its own set of challenges and stretches me into new uncharted territory, which can be exciting & terrifying at the same time. There have been times where I’ve wondered why I’m doing this, questioned if my books are junk, and figured I should probably throw in the towel. I’m really glad I haven’t succumbed to those mind stories.
All of this to say I’m incredibly grateful for you. Thank you for joining me on this journey. Thank you for seeing the value in the books I create. 📚 Thank you for encouraging me, supporting me, sharing my books, getting excited for my new releases, showing up to my events, asking your child’s school to invite me to speak, and so much more. Thank you for helping make Inner Compass Books possible. It means the world and I am so grateful. ❤️
