Nine-year-old author signs books

| December 15, 2014

DSC_0011COSHOCTON – Louise Cardenzana couldn’t be prouder of her 9-year-old granddaughter Piper Hawkins who was at Ohio State of Mind on Dec. 13 to sign copies of her book, “Visions of Light: A Christmas Story.” “She’s been writing for such a long time,” Cardenzana said. “She has copies of her stories with her own drawings in them so this is really exciting. She wanted to do this and was very motivated.” After attending a festival about books, Hawkins decided she was going to publish a book before she turned 10, which will happen on Dec. 18. “It’s really cool and amazing that I did this,” Hawkins said. “It was a challenge, but I got through it.” She is already planning her next book and said it will be about a puppy tooth fairy. “I sign my books with dream big and my name,” Hawkins said. “That would be my advice to others. Do what you want because you can do it.”
