Who is the person who has encouraged and inspired you the most in your life?

So many! But first and foremost my parents. I grew up in a small town in Missouri with very traditional parents, but they offered me unconditional support through my early phase of wanting to become a famous actress and then when I decided I was going to be an author. Never once did they make me feel that my dreams were silly or out of reach. And of course, my husband has always encouraged me to keep going, even on my darkest days. I’ll always be grateful for their belief in me.
