The weather was beautiful, and as a group we sold 108 books. Three authors made money with Portia Wayne being our big seller with her "Dinosaurs in Decatur" being the top seller. This was followed closely by Mike Owens with his " I Hate Vegetables" poetry book taking second place.. Of the 14 authors, only one had no sales, everyone else had sales.

Although a native Virginian, Pat has branded herself as a Georgia Peach for over 35 years. She acknowledges having no financial credentials, but is uniquely qualified to pen her first book, "Snowball Investing," on financial matters as a result of a family crisis and the knee-jerk urgency to transform her own finances. Using the principles of stewardship, she recounts in detail the steps taken to erase all debts and to create a comprehensive financial portfolio to outweigh unforeseen future expenses.
Pat’s first published work appeared in the book, "In Search of a Match Black & White," by Dan Moore, Sr. She relives her journey with a perfect stranger, a leukemia patient in desperate need of a bone marrow or stem cell transplant. Their recollection of the donor/recipient process is highlighted from both vantage points. Over the last three decades, Pat has also penned an assortment of unpublished poems for personal encouragement and as gifts to friends.
Pat’s college degrees in occupational therapy and counseling, as well as her past and present association with “helps” industries including real estate and the world-renown Reliv International, Inc., have given her a lifetime of opportunities to meet people in desperate and hurting places, and guide them towards a state of hope and purpose.
Pat can be contacted via her website, www.snowball-investing.com, and followed on her Facebook page, Snowball Investing. She shares practical money-saving tips and articles of inspiration to encourage readers to rid themselves of the debt blob in order to protect ones’ greatest asset producer, their income. Pat enjoys reading, sewing, and travelling with her husband Sumner Anthony Smith. She is personally inspired each time she ministers at Gilgal, Inc., a faith-based drug and alcohol women’s transitional facility in Atlanta. She is also active in her home church, Berean Bible Baptist Church in Atlanta.
