This week I am picking people who I admire the most in my life. The first day is Author Barbara Joe Williams. Please share her some love on her Facebook page and website. Thanks so much.
She is a bestselling author, editor, and proofreader, publisher, publishing consultant, and motivational speaker living in Tallahassee, Florida. She is a Navy veteran, a graduate of Tallahassee Community College, and Florida A & M University.
I love Barbara Joe because she keeps it real and is very honest in her opinions. I respect her opinion and openness. She is a jack-of-all-trade in the editing field. I call her my mentor because she helps me with the editing process. I love how whenever I need advice or just to talk she is always available for me. I would like to thank her for her advice and wisdom daily.
I meet Barbara Joe on Facebook and we have been friends for a little over 3 years now. I take her advice and wisdom to the utmost respect. I can say she is a Woman of God and she will help you whenever you’re in need. I love our weekly chats. I look forward to her messages on Sunday and sometimes her phone calls. I know I get on her nerves sometimes when I just called to ask her questions about the editing process. I have never met Barbara Joe but I know when we do meet it will be a glorious occasion. I have been reading Mrs. Barbara Joe’s books and I love them. Her daughter also has a poetry book out and I read it several years ago. The name of her daughter’s poetry book is called Peace Poems. I just would like to let everyone know and of course Barbara Joe know that I admire you so much. I look up to Barbara Joe because of who she is. Thank you Barbara Joe for your wisdom, your motivation, your encouraging words and last but not least your friendship. I love you Barbara Joe.
