What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My inspiration for writing the book was asking myself why we don't we have strong female characters who can't cope very well with life and love, and what would happen if one did exist? I think empowerment comes from understanding a persons weaknesses rather than their strengths, so I wanted to write a book that explored that concept.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My characters are full of juxtaposition and irony. My lead female character Sarah is both full of weaknesses, but also one of the strongest people in the book. Her husband is both strong as a financial provider, but weak as a person.
“There are four things I need you to always remember alright?"
"Sure," she said.
"One, always breathe," he said "It sounds simple but breathing is sometimes the hardest thing in the world. If you're ever struggling, stop, and take a couple of deep, slow breaths. Count them out loud if you need to. Two, always have dreams and ideals and never let anyone tell you it's impossible. Something impossible is only something possible that hasn't yet been done. Three, get out of bed every single day. Especially if you don't want to. Because yes, even without you the world keeps turning, it's simply a little more interesting with you in it. Four, never give up. That means on life and yourself.”
