I am putting the finishing touch on my first novel, Penetration for the Mind. This is an exciting and emotional process. Over the years, I have learned that each day you need to do something to help you reach your goals. There is nothing that you can do that is considered small. As each day passes, I realize life is short and tomorrow is never promised. You have to get up and do what your heart desires. Looking back 5 years, I never imagined this moment would come for me. My life has had many ups and downs which all were learning lessons. I am thankful for all my loving and supportive family and friends who have continued to encourage me along my journey.
