PRLog - Jun. 7, 2011 - CUMMING, Ga. -- On June 12th from 1:00-5:00 p.m., ten-year-old author, Sarah Voskamp, will do a book signing at the Chapters Bookstore in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. Voskamp, author of "Filly Girls," and a much sought-after speaker in elementary schools in Georgia, USA, is presently on a book signing tour of schools in Ontario, Canada. From the initial response, students in Canada are reacting positively to Voskamp’s attitude of “You don’t have to be big to do big things.”
The book is about three horseback-riding best friends, and in the story, the main character, Ellie, learns that not all dreams come true the way you expect them to.

Voskamp, who will be eleven in August, wrote the book when she was nine years old and has aspirations to be the next J.K. Rowling. Busy on the beginning of her second book, this young writer has a good start toward accomplishing that goal.
Kim and Leo Voskamp, the young author’s parents, are originally from the Trenton/Belleville area of Ontario, moved their family to Georgia before Sarah was born, but visit Canada and their Canadian roots several times a year. On the itinerary for this trip, along with the book signing at Chapters, Voskamp has done an interview with Chex Television that will be aired in the near future, and is making appearances at schools in the Peterborough, Campbellford, Northumberland, and Clarington areas.
