2011 was a wonderful year for me professionally and personally. My husband and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary, our three now-7-year-olds went into first grade and their reading (reading!) skills skyrocketed, and my book Writing Young Adult Fiction For Dummies was published, with two other book contracts coming my way in the last days of the year.
I am grateful for these wonderful things—and I am grateful for the people who supported my family and I in our adventures. Dozens of people helped me launch my book and contributed to the content within it. And my whole family made new friends at school and in our community. We are all honored by the way we were embraced in 2011.
Thank you so much to everyone in our lives. May 2012 bring you all adventures and wonder.
