Literacy Week Reflections

What a week! Last week was Literacy Week here in Florida and I was fortunate enough to speak to over 300 children about reading, writing, and of course, my books. So many amazing things happen when you share a passion – any passion! One student even wrote a note telling me they want to be just like me when they grow up…I hope I was able to inspire at least one of those 300 into writing. If I can do it – anyone can!

On that note – The Vortex is currently being reviewed by an editor in LA. It’s pretty exciting to think that something I wrote is being reviewed and edited in the movie capital! Of course, this is the first step of many…like the quote by Lao Tzu: “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

I’m hoping my journey won’t be a thousand miles – but I’ve already taken the first step!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
