Let yourself be silently drawn by what you love. It will not lead you astray. -Rumi
For the longest time I felt stagnant in my work environment. I couldn’t think of what else to do since teaching had been my one and only job after graduating college. I had already finished graduate school and taken a bunch of extension courses to further develop my teaching skills. While I loved being with the little ones, I simply felt stuck. Upon the urging of my dad I began to write. And the more I wrote, the more stories that were created. I now house several story characters, story plots and worlds in my mind. My “friends” keep me company and quietly cheer me on when I panic and wonder, “Who do I think I am and how could I ever do that?”
Today I am happy to announce that Pink Fire Trucks, illustrated by Lina Safar and translated by Liliana Cosentino is a finalist for the 2014 International Latino Book Awards for Most Inspirational Children’s Picture Book – Spanish or Bilingual. Yahoo!
Bravo to all the 2014 Int’l Latino Book Awards Finalists!
