2013 Southern California Book Festival

I received exciting information today.  I earned an Honorable Mention at the 2013 Southern California Book Festival for my book ‘Finding My Voice with Aphasia”. The festival is held every year with over a 100,00 entries from all over the country.  I am so excited and feel validated as a writer. I was requested to go to the Roosevelt Hotel in LA to receive a plaque on October 18, 2013 and give a speech. This is unbelievable.  I am on cloud 9.

Strokes and their results are terrifying; rehabilitation is hard work; and aphasia is mind-boggling. This is an example of what you can do when you work hard,  receive encouragement and  never give up.   Just keep on following your goals and dreams.
