Last year I realized that if I was going to get serious about my writing then I needed to do something about my fear of having my picture taken. As a hobby with a special group of people, we called DreamBuilders, I spent a lot of time over the last couple of years studying the law of attraction. During my study, I realized that I could not envision myself on the cover of my book or doing autograph parties and readings for my fans, because I was too scared of being in the public eye or seeing my picture publicized. I knew I had to do something about that. I entered the Mrs. Alaska Pageant.
