I had lots of fun and support during my first book signing in Burlington, Iowa, where I sold and signed my first published book, Finding Heath Young Lighthouse Keeper. Attached are some photos of my friends and family who supported me during that day! Posting their pictures is a small tribute to them from me. Enjoy!
