Tell us about your book.
BJ's Big Dream is a story about a young boy determined to have long hair. He encounters several obstacles on his journey and even has some surprises, but his desire, faith and patience combine to ensure his success.
How did you come up with ideas for this book?
For seven years, I watched my son attempt to grow his hair. Over and over he failed, but he never quit. The journey for me wasn't easy to watch, but BJ learned from the experience and I was inspired euonymus measure. He began in second grade, and in ninth grade, his hair finally took off. He wore his long locks until his junior year in college.
What do you hope readers will learn/discover from reading your book?
Any dream worth dreaming is worth accomplishing with desire, faith and patience.
Just for fun
Coffee or tea? Coffee hands down
Lights on / lights off? A combination: lights on when I'm home alone at night; lights dimmed when I'm working.
things you never leave home without? Prayer, cell phone, money
Sleep in or get up early? Sleep in
Celebrity crushes? Fred Flintstone, Kermit the Frog (sorry Ms. Piggy) and when I'm feeling naughty, Lil Ron Ron
Tell us something no person knows about you. I blog while I'm driving by speaking into the mic on my phone.
