You won't remember me, but I will never forget you. You were the first Real author I had ever met. I had won a school project and the prize was lunch and a chance to meet an author. My life changed that day when I met you and came to realize I liked to write as much as I liked to read. I understood dreams were possible. I have kept your book throughout the years as a reminder of how important it is to inspire children to persevere with their ideas. To continue to be creative no matter what the odds stacked against them. To do what you love...After all isn't that what Dancing is...
Thank you for your undoubtedly unknown inspiration given to a young girl so many years ago. May I continue to inspire children and adults everyday, as did you.
