Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
|Daddy and Mom in the 40's|
Then one grading period I received a B in history. I'd gotten so accustomed to A's that the B made me pout with disappointment. My dad said something to me I've never forgotten: "You tell that teacher you're too busy making history to study it." Daddy always offered me the best advice.
Like when I was a teenager. He told me instead of marrying one guy I should just sing in the sunshine. That didn't please my mother. And that's a subject for another post.
Making history. That's what we're all doing so give it your best shot. Sure wish my dad was alive to see I'm a published author. Especially since I just contracted Post-War Dreams with The Wild Rose Press. This 1945 historical romance was inspired by my parents. Daddy would see some of himself in my hero, Benjamin. I feel certain he'd be proud of the history I've made.
No release date yet. Look for Post-War Dreams later in the year.
