Not always, but yes, for the past 10 years or so, I knew I wanted to write this book. The notion to write a book was particularly strong while I was working for a large dialysis company. I felt like that old phrase – a square peg in a round hole. I was not comfortable in my own skin for a long time forcing myself to be something that I wasn’t. I even said to my boss at one point that I wasn’t meant to be there and that I should be writing. It took me a few years after that to take the leap, and I’m so grateful I did.
When I travel for work, I take my daughter with me. I’ll be honest, it’s been a tough transition going from a road warrior who traveled almost every week for work, to now traveling for work with a baby. But we’re making it work, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I wouldn’t be able to focus while on the road if she wasn’t with me. Maybe I will feel differently when she’s older, but for now, as a first time mom, we stick together.
I wasn’t worried about the reception because of the tragic nature of the topic, I was more worried that people wouldn’t like the writing! But the difficult subject matter did drive my decision to write fiction instead of non-fiction. My goal with A Girl In Traffick is to raise awareness about organ trafficking, a type of human trafficking that gets very little media attention. I intentionally wrote it as a thriller to get more people interested, engaged, and educated about this important issue. So far I’m grateful for the very positive reception with, of course, a few exceptions. We can’t please everyone!
3) No one in particular, but several female entrepreneurs who are hustling every day to make their dreams come true. Being an indie author, I’m my own writer, editor, marketing, and PR person. It’s a constant juggle of many different skill sets. I think about all the women who are balancing work, children, and running their households. They inspire me every day, and twice on days when I’m feeling discouraged or exhausted.
Just start writing. Edit later.
Print. I love to hold books in my hand, hear the rustle as a I turn the page, and that new book smell.
Just one?! My family album that I made. But that’s not what you’re asking. Probably The Lord Of The Rings or some other epic that I could get lost in and read over and over.
Listen to your heart and mind and pursue what you’re good at, not what others think you’re good. Don’t let others “should” on you.
