What do you do when you're not writing?

When I'm not writing I'm researching. One thing I've learned over the years is that it takes more than writing about what you know. If you write about only what you know, your writing career won't stretch as far as your hopes. Researching my next project is always on my agenda even when I'm not writing.

What inspired you to write this particular book?

I'm always receiving emails from women, or being approached by women who admit that my writing has inspired them in some sort of way. Many of these women often admit that they inspire to become novelist, however never gained the courage to follow through with it because of their fears. Just like those women, at one point in my life I developed the same exact fears and I wanted to share with women nationwide how to defeat those fears.

What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?

My favorite part to write would have to be the short fictional piece of the story. I loved this section of the story because it spotlights how dangerous and crippling fear can become. It's one thing to tell someone how to defeat fear, however it's another to demonstrate how damaging fear can become.

What is best writing advice you can give?

The best writing advice I can offer to any aspiring writer would be to do your research. Researching any industry you're seeking to break into is crucial. Having that overall basic knowledge of whats to come can take you a long way.

Is there anything else you'd like your readers to know about the book?

If you're seeking empowerment, and need encouragement, this will definitely be a great read for you! I want my readers to know that this book is definitely a barrier to defeating your fears, in order to achieve the ultimate success.
