I write books because I love books. Always have, always will. I never tire of stories about journeying through life, engaging with the world, and cultivating rhythms to anchor my soul. To be sure, books have fueled my imagination and been a light on my path when I need a nudge for my next steps, encouragement when I’m down, or to deepen my connection with humanity.
The idea of my books being in the hands of someone as they head to bed or sip their morning coffee, perhaps tucked into their carry-on for a journey, or a part of conversation between friends as they sit together and share stories about life fills me with unspeakable joy and honor.
I hope and pray that the words I write are like seeds that get sprinkled into and, perhaps, take root and speak to people’s hearts, minds, and spirits, and connect them more deeply to their brothers and sisters ‘round the world. xo, -SDT
