Unknown Childhood Dreams.

A firm believer in "treat others as you want to be treated", I sent a message through Goodreads to my favorite childhood author. A thank you to Tamora Pierce for writing books that still influence my imagination to this day.

What I never expected was a reply.

Checking Goodreads via mobile app while my husband filled up the car with gas, I was looking for a book recommendation reply.
What I found made me squeal with disbelief and delight.
I had a message signed "Tammy".

As soon as I got home I ran through the house to the office.
There I have a bookcase with a whole shelf filled with her books.
I quickly found my favorite and  pulled it out to show my husband who was still confused by my excitement.
Being honest, it didn't clarify things for him.

Knowing it was going to rain for a few days, we took the opportunity to get some exersise.
My Siberian Husky took the lead and walked my husband and son. 
I skipped, for two miles!

A childhood dream I didn't know I was holding on to came true.
What an amazing time we live in!

Technological advancements have allowed me the privilege of exchanging correspondence with the creator of my favorite childhood books, Tamora Pierce.

Who was your favorite author growing up? 
Which book did you read to most?
For my husband is was Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. For my son it is J.R.R Tolkien's The Hobbit.
