Author Calls Readers to Follow Dreams Despite Challenges

Derrick Woolhouse Paxton wants to encourage others in fulfilling their dreams despite the obstacles that may appear to them. In "The Ten-Pound Adventure" (published by Xlibris AU), Paxton writes about everyday events, dealing with day-to-day joys and problems.

The book tells a history of a man's early beginnings, and insurmountable issues and how to find ways to overcome them. The events featured in the book are real and not imaginary, whether from the educated or just the ordinary battler.

"If he can do it, then so I can! I want them to look at the changes over the years, at the acceptable and the non-acceptable and to face the daily changes," the author says.

A particular passage from the book:
Yesterday is past.
Tomorrow never comes.
Today is the present. Unwrap it, it is full of surprises.
