What inspires you to write?
Inspiration for the “Stuff I Wish I Knew” series of books came from finding that lots of aspects of pregnancy, childbirth and having a newborn were simply not talked about enough. Often parents are shocked, surprised and dismayed by many discoveries on their journey to having a baby. I wanted to provide new parents with a light-hearted take on some of these things, so that they will feel a little more prepared for their rollercoaster journey to parenthood.
Tell us about your writing process.
I start with an outline but it always gets an overhaul while I’m writing the content.
What advice would you give other writers?
If you haven’t started yet, just start. If writing brings you joy then go ahead and do it. The confidence to share their words with others doesn’t come naturally for everyone, but be assured that there are lots of people out there that want to hear what you have to say.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Self-publishing seems like the right fit for me at the moment, but I wouldn’t rule out working with a publisher in the future.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think there will always be people who want to feel a real book in their hands but digital publishing certainly offers a world of convenience for readers and authors alike.
What genres do you write?: Nonfiction
What formats are your books in?: eBook
