–How did you discover you were a writer?
When I realized it was my most comforting therapy.
–How many books have you written and what are their titles?
I’ve written two books:
I was taking a book launching course with my nutritional school- we had a finish date to submit something by May 2016. My book that I had been writing since 2007 was just not complete.. It was actually finished as in material- but it needed more editing in which had to be another set of eyes other than my own. So as I was encouraged to write a quick childs book or a book of poetry, I kinda combined the two ideas and wrote, “Oraganic Baby Holistically Raised” which I used my two year old grand-daughter (at the time) as the voice of the book. It was basically a poetic book written though her eyes of how she would explain my upbringing of her. It was published on May 10th 2016 (the anniversary of my step fathers death).
My second book, “Becoming Me While Losing You” my original purpose of the book launching course was complete on January 23, 2017 in honor of my stepfather.. (January 23rd is my stepfathers birthday) making it another personal accomplishment for me.
I had a book signing event on May 27, 2017, in honor and remembrance of the loss of my mother, 18 years to the date of losing her. 😥
–What is your favorite childhood book?
Ironically ‘Bambi’ I just lost my cat Bambi this week to the hunger of coyotes, natures carnivorous hunters. 😦
Me & My Bambi Girl! ❤
–Tell us about a pivotal book you read as a teenager?
Read as a teenager? Unless it was assigned- I didn’t read. Seriously though Charlottes Web stands out to me, yet again another eye-opening, heart-opening subject to my now Vegan heart. Step by step I’ve read my way into ‘who I am’ I guess. I now LOVE to read, write & save the animals. 😉
–What is your writing kryptonite?
Vison- after prayer, meditation and alone, quiet time. Then I let the juices flow. Writing is my therapy for all things! 🙂
–What is the best money you ever spent as a writer?
Hands down, My awesome editor, Mysti Linne. I can’t put a price on the love, support, and awesome creativity she brought to my book and my life. She is priceless! ❤
–How do you choose the names for your characters?
Both my books are memoir’s- obviously I use real characters.
–Do you hide secrets in your books that only a few people will find?
Oh- there is definitely “read between the lines” messages; I’ve been told by many that they both speak in volumes on my many subjects. Even my first little book that is only 2o something pages long.
–What activities do you enjoy when you’re not writing?
Reading, researching, spending time with my girls and grandloves, and peaceful time in nature, It’s where I recieve my best visions and messages.
–What was your last project?
Becoming Me While Losing You. It sereves as a great ministerial tool with my clients.
–What is your next project?
I have three “next projects” on the back burner:
One is to make a study guide for “Becoming Me While Losing You.” I’ve also been asked if I’d ever turn it into a Christian movie, In which I’d have to share many more details that were left out. 😉
I’ve been asked to turn “Orgaic Baby Holistically Raised’ into a coloring book, and others have asked me to expand it into chapters on all the subjects I touched on.
And of course as a health coach I have many books started on Healing through Faith and Food.
