About the Book

Where are today's heroes if not all on TV? Most of them are all around you, and even within you. John Wayne is credited with saying, " Courage is being afraid, but saddeling up anyway!" to which I would add - and doing what you know is right. In this book, the heroes need to face their need to ask for help and to give help. They are placed into a mix of cultures and values. As you watch the characters develop and you will see their ability to apply courage with love and understanding, walk a bit straighter and smile in the end.

About the Author

At age five, Shirleen L. Smith knew she wanted to be a teacher. She also enjoyed writing early on. Finally, in college, she was able to dive into literature and training for teachers. She loved every moment of twenty-seven years of classroom teaching. She gained a MA in administration and was a principal for ten years at a grade school of over 450 students. Those years of focusing on a small age and ability span were truly the highlight of her career.

She and her husband are now retired in the mountains of Colorado with two dogs and a mini-horse. She is the superintendent of children’s programs at her local church and is able to stay in touch with young children and their interests. She and her husband invite their grandchildren to spend summers with them. This helps them to “stay in touch,” and they believe it allows their grandchildren to realize and adopt many of their values.
