What inspires you to write?
I am inspired by knowing that I am helping other mothers who find themselves struggling with the same challenges I have dealt with.
Tell us about your writing process.
I write about my challenges and experiences and include the science to back up my choices. I write freely and then organize my thoughts to make the most logical sense.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I was advised to consider self-publishing by another indie author who found the process to be less intimidating than the daunting task of finding and interested publisher.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
As more publishers are demanding that authors provide their own platform and marketing, do-it-yourself type authors will just continue on and self-publish.
