Roland Smith Is Amazing!

On Monday, March 15th I took my own 3 kids to the Literature Festival in Warrensburg, Missouri. We had a great time seeing 4 great authors! We ALL especially loved the presentation by Roland Smith. I have seen him speak ten to fifteen times, but it never gets old. He is an amazing speaker and really captures the audiences' attention. My kids have been quoting him all week! You MUST check out his website. He writes a blog called, Roland's Journal that will grab your interest if you are keen on becoming a writer yourself. You can follow along as he blogs about his day...what he is writing, what is ready to be submitted, and so on. Check it out...
