The inspiration for my book came from reading Oklahoma author, Bill Wallace’s books which I had discovered on these very same shelves. I remember thinking, “If he can do it, I can do it!” When I began writing my own book, I was only eleven years old.
I remember asking my favorite librarian, Gerry if one day they would put my book on the library shelf. I was so disappointed to hear that it had to be published before it could be placed in their system.
