OWFI Awards 2017

I am so excited!!!!
I recently attended a conference in Oklahoma City, the Oklahoma Writers Federation Incorporated, and I am proud to say that I brought back three awards. The first award was Third Place for my Juvenile story, Shine On. Yes, there is a typo on the certificate but that is okay. The Second award was First Place for my Children's Picture Book story, The Purple Problem. After winning the first place award in this category of the contest, it was then entered into the Creme' De' La Creme contest along with all of the other first place winners and to my amazement it WON! 

The Purple Problem is a poem that I wrote many year ago about a girl who was born with purple hair and the trial and errors she faced trying to fit in. It is a humorous poem in which the girl learns how to face a big problem. I am in the process of working with my illustrator and editor to get this book published. I will let you know when it is ready to go! 

Let this be a reminder for all of you, my wonderful friends, to follow your dreams and never give up. That next step you take might be a step up getting you closer to your dream.
