JoAnn Smith Ainsworth
"The impetus behind my writings lies in a desire to illustrate through the lives of characters that small moments of courage are all it takes to attain what we seek in life." JoAnn Smith Ainsworth
Courage makes ordinary people extraordinary. Courage need only be the wilingness to take a first step.
