What inspires you to write?
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, and Hashimoto's one year after treatment ended. I've wanted to be a writer since I was a child, but these health challenges were the catalyst for me to write and help inspire others through their trials.
Tell us about your writing process.
I'm one of those people who like to sit at the keyboard and close my eyes and it all comes out. The writing is raw and real and from my heart.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I started with an email and then a small blog to my family and friends while going through cancer treatment. This morphed over the years into a health and wellness website with over 100,000 followers and a million page views, and seven books.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I personally enjoy the flexibility and freedom of self-publishing. It lets me be me with my own voice and not be constrained by the dollars of a publishing house.
