Enough (Author Interview)



The book Enough looks riveting. What can readers expect from it?

Readers can expect to follow me through my journey of real, raw, unconditional self love. They can expect to laugh, cry, and cheer me on as they recognize different parts of themselves in my experiences.

How long did it take you to write Enough?

Funny story. I originally took a 6-week intensive to write the book. Then somehow it mysteriously erasied off of my computer, so I had to take another 2 months to rewrite it. I think it was fate. The 2nd version actually turned out a lot more powerful.

This cover is interesting for a memoir. What was the thought process behind it?

Freedom. With this memoir, I wanted to empower women to stand unapologetically in their truth, because only then will they truly be free. In this book, and even with the cover, I revealed all the things about myself I used to try and hide.

What inspired you when writing Enough?   

Seeing and working with sooo many women who were going through the exact challenges I have overcome. I empathized deeply with them, and really wanted to share my testimony, in hopes that they wouldn’t have to suffer in the way that I did learning things the hard way.

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Enough?

Besides the devastation of losing my first project lol, I would say telling my story authentically, with all my ugly truths, as opposed to staying in the comfort of playing the victim.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

Traveling. Showing my children the world, and taking time out to appreciate things like the sun, ocean, and stars.
