Thomasville-- Less than a year after she started writing it, Debbie Griffiths is ready to release "Little Lady, Big Dream."

Griffiths built Thomasville's Southern Pines retirement community from the ground up and ran it until she sold it two years ago.

Through the autobiography, she wants to share the secrets to her success.  "I feel like I have a message to deliver to the world to show how determination and perseverance is essential to become and amazingly successful female entrepreneur and so in that book I'm able to deliver that message and hopefully encourage others to fulfill their dream," says Griffith.

A book signing from 5 to 7 Thursdsay evening at Southwest Georgia Technical College will kick off the book's release.  For more information visit the "Little Lady, Big Dream" website.
