Why I write

The past two weeks have been very encouraging and exciting as family and friends have shown great support and interest in Footprints of the Unnamed. I feel as though the workers at the local post office are quite familiar with my face, as I go in every few days to send off a few more books. Through the busyness of trying to self-promote and ensure I send books off as quickly as possible, I haven’t had much time to slow down and process all that is happening. The other day I received an email from a friend who had ordered a book. I had thanked him for his support and he responded by saying, “I’m so happy to be your friend and to see you pursuing your dreams by writing another book.”

It was humbling and touching to read his heart-felt words. It also brought me a beautiful reminder, I write because I love to write. I write because I feel as though I have something worth saying, and I want that message to be heard. I write with the hope that the words may impact somebody’s life.
