As the author explains, “Miracles All Around Us” was borne from a lifelong passion.
“When I was nine years old, I became a Christian, and at the age of twelve, I began working with younger children in the church. Throughout my life, I have told people many times that there are three things I truly believe in: first, is the Holy Trinity, second is children, and last, myself. Writing has always been on my bucket list.”
Continuing, “I recently retired after thirty-four years in the educational field. My new book has kept me motivated, fulfilled and productive during this phase of my life. I’m happiest when I’m working with children and inspiring readers to open themselves to the magnificence of God’s creation. I would love it, if after reading about Dudley and Maggie, children run out to their backyards and search for their own miracles.”
