"Sharing Enthusiasm"

Author Judith Graves
We love seeing things about our authors in print. Especially when it's a rave review. This one was published in The Southern Gazette on January 18, 2011. The author, Leonard Quilty, who is also a teacher, attended Judith Graves' library talk in Okotoks, Alberta, last weekend. Here's some of what he had to say:

"Ms. Graves gave a very interesting talk about writing in general, and what it takes to be a published author. Other than the useful information she shared, what impressed me the most about this young author was the unabashed gleam in her eyes as she was talking about the joys of reading and writing.

"It was obvious to me she had found her niche in life – her magnificent obsession. What a blessing it is to get to that point in your life when you’ve latched onto something so powerful it literally resonates in your being, so much so you just want to share it with others hoping your enthusiasm will inspire them to go out and do the same."

It's wonderful to know that our Leap authors radiate joy. And thanks to Mr. Quilty for brightening our day too.
