What inspires you to write?
The health of women and children inspire all of my guides. As a doula, I have experienced the connection between a mother and her child and I believe the process of motherhood and all of its facets should be shared with others.
Tell us about your writing process.
I use Word when I write my books and self-publish through Amazon. The topics I cover are the result of my experiences as a Doula. I create my book covers and hire freelance editors to review my books.
What advice would you give other writers?
Write on a subject you are passionate about and never be afraid to take it one sentence at a time.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I knew I wanted to self-publish and Amazon's platform and tools were simple to work with.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I wanted complete control of the publishing process and self-publishing allowed me to do that for all of my books. My advice is to explore self-publishing. Not only will you publish your work quicker and without much hassle, you will learn quite a bit about the publishing process which can aid you further down the road if you are wanting to continue writing.
