In my deepest, darkest moments, what really got me through was a prayer. sometimes my prayer was 'help me.' sometimes a prayer was 'thank you.' what i've discovered is that intimate connection and communication with my creator will always get me through because i know my support, my help, is just a prayer away.
I've been asked, 'where do you come up with your books? how do you think that way?" i actually don't have much of an answer to that question, but there is an important part of the process i hardly ever talk about. that girl in the mirror, the tall one, is my "little" sister. of all the people in the world, she understands the creative side of me. she listens while i think out loud and offers her own insights.
droplets would have never happened without her, and this next series would still be stuck in chapter 1.
she is the biggest fan of my books, and half the time i write because i know she wants to read it!
