Tonight's special guest on "A Book and a Chat" has come a long way from a very difficult beginning, "Dallas Woodburn" has become an author, speaker, freelance writer as well as living her dream.
A 22-year-old recent USC graduate, Dallas already has produced two collections of short stories, a forthcoming novel, and more than 80 articles in publications including Family Circle, Writer's Digest, The Writer, the Los Angeles Times, and seven Chicken Soup for the Soul books.
Her first book "There's a Huge Pimple on My Nose" (got to love that title), was produced when she was in fifth grade. Since then she has gone on to produce a second book of short stories "3 a.m." Dallas writes with both humor and poignancy, features you will understand as you listen to our chat.
During the show we discuss items from her premature birth and the knowledge and gratitude gained from realizing how lucky she is to just being alive and how that has given her the drive to live her dream of becoming a writer.
Dallas also shares with us how at the age of thirteen she started "Write On!" a non-profit organization that encourages children to discover joy, self-confidence, and expression through writing and reading. And the great work she has done through that link to gather over 11,000 books for young readers during "Holiday Book Drives" after the last nine years.
A fun and interesting program where we learn much about Dallas and her writing, that all will enjoy.
