How Did You Know You Wanted To Be An Author? After my husband died, I felt there weren’t grief books that gave me permission to grieve. I sensed most of them wanted to help me get through the loss or over it, but they didn’t allow me to just grieve. Our society struggles with grief, and I felt pressure from people to “heal” or be happy. But, I gave myself permission to grieve in my own way. I hadn’t wanted to write a book, but I knew I had to write this book to normalize all the painful emotions and to give that same permission to others.
What Is Your Advice For Aspiring Authors? I advise aspiring authors to be passionate about why they’re creating their books. The writing journey is long and hard, but the writing is the easy part. Publishing your book, reaching your readers, distinguishing your book, and building an author platform can feel daunting. That’s why you must have a clear reason for writing your book; that way, if you want to give up, you have a reason to keep going.
