A good read and good information! Thanks Robin!

Robin Writes

Today my guest poster is author Shannon Yarbrough, who’s published three books so far – with a fourth coming out some time this year. Shannon, who is an excellent writer, has also been invaluable to us at All on the Same Page Bookstore, providing us with suggestions and ideas and much-needed moral support.

Especially when we’re searching for a book. A green book.

Without further ado:

There’s an old adage that goes something like: “Write what you know.” I actually agree with that saying somewhat. If a person came up to me and told me they wanted to write a book and they were asking me for advice, I’d probably tell them that for lack of anything better to say. And it was certainly a theme I followed when I started writing my first book twelve years ago.

Since then, I’ve read a lot more. I’ve matured a lot…

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
