About your book/s The first book of mine is a children’s book called Where The Wind Blows. It simply is a gift from God. I received it from a dream. In that dream I was given the title. I wrote the outline at 3:45 am. I made my Dad a Pastor in the book. In reality my Dad was an evangelist. However, that same night at my son’s basketball game. My mother called me and informed me that my Dad had been asked to Pastor a church. I knew right then It was an assignment from God.
