“ Just because a horse can run, or train, does not mean that it can race. It might have the ability to run just as fast as everyone else - or faster - but it can't race, or won't race. There are plenty of horses working at Penn National or Finger Lakes, everyday, putting in workouts that are just as fast as the horses at Belmont. But they can't race; that's why they're at Finger Lakes. ”
“ The morning opens, a mist of innocence appears across the countryside that tells each one of us the day is new. That feeling of hope, love and the humble awareness of our duty becomes clear if even for a moment. It is that experience of inspiration that follows us into a small town woken by a cool frost on this Sunday morning and the laughter of children playing. ”

[close] Q & A interview Can you tell us a little about your books and yourself? What inspired you to write your books? My life experiences have. As we go through life, we learn from all the assorted events that occur, the good, the bad, the happy and the sad. Books are a wonderful outlet to share these experiences and the readers will walk away with a new since of experience, new thoughts to life events and hopefully, be inspired. Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it? Oh yes, I learned so much writing Marybeth’s Final Journey. I learned the amazing bond of family, love, laughter and life shared, even when faced with the outcome Marybeth faced. What are some challenges that you faced while writing? There were many nights I couldn't write, due to the overwhelming and challenging personal events of this story. Sometimes, facing your own challenges or hurdles, makes doing it very worthwhile. Who or what in your life would you say influenced you the most? Wow, that is a big question. Because there have been so many dear people in my life who all have made an impact in some way, I cannot pick just a person. I will say that that literally my life experiences were my biggest influences. I chose not to be a victim of circumstances but to learn from all the good and not so good things that happened to me. I have a passion for life, love and happiness and I am quite successful of being a “Ray of Sunshine” to those in my life. Do you have any advice for aspiring writers? Yes. If you are passionate for writing, don’t let life pass you by with so many obstacles, that it makes it impossible to complete your literary work. Life is too short not to live everyday with your passions being turned into your books. http://www.rondarockwellpublishing.com Books Available on: Amazon, Kindle, Nook
