Alma 32:41

...Nourish the tree as it beginneth to grow, by your faith with great diligence, and with patience, looking forward to the fruit thereof, it shall take root; and behold it shall be a tree springing up unto everlasting life.

Meet the Wonderful, Talented, and Beautiful Bree Despain

Back in the day, I attended BYU. I lived in the same area (ward) for most of my time there. It was a blast. I love the memories I have of my time there and I love the people I met. I currently love Facebook for reconnecting me with many of those friends. It's so cool to see pictures of their kids and hear what they are doing now.
Bree was one of my roomates. We enjoyed many a Quantum Leap rerun while she taught me to appreciate pasta from a box and real fresh grated Mozzarella. I also enjoyed hearing her tell me about a Young Adult fiction book she was writing.
Fast forward about 10 years and we reconnect on Facebook just in time for me to hear her most AWESOME news! She sold her first book and an option for a second yet unwritten book! Here's her BIO and a synopsis of her book The Dark Divine . It's not the same book she told me about when we were students but it sounds incredible! She is extremely creative and talented and I can't wait to read it. I'm going to suggest it for my book club. :) Her book will come out about this time next year (which is fast in the publishing world).
While we wait for her wonderful book we can read her blog. Her current post is an amazing giveaway especially if you are a YA fiction lover like I am. Go check it out at Confessions of a Mere Mortal . Enter her giveaway and be sure to let her know that you found her through me so that I can get more entries. :)
Woohoo! Congrats Bree! I am so excited for you! You deserve a following. :)

That is so cool. I'm going to have to look her up. I too remember the Quantum Leap reruns.
