Tell us something about yourself.
I come from a childhood that was peppered with physical and mental abuse. I survived countless nights of watching my mom physically abused, kidnappings, homelessness and drug abuse as far back as I can remember. These experiences have given me the ambition to move towards success by living limitlessly. I refuse to repeat the cycle. We all have the opportunity to choose to see the experiences as lessons that will carry you to your desired life.
I have used these unfortunate circumstances I lived as a child and turned them into a way to encourage others to live a life of confidence and strength. Many people are faced with the same circumstances as I did and they are not sure about who they are. My passion lies in encouraging people to heal from the inside out resulting in a strong, confident, empowered person that will change the world.

How did you know you wanted to be a writer? How did you get started?
I have always known I wanted to write books. My main motivation was being the mother of 4 daughters. As I watched my daughters grow in confidence I realized that some girls might not have the empowerment that I have given to my girls.
My writing started as I looked back at myself and seen a low self esteem girl lost on her path and felt my story could give power back to these girls creating confidence and self love they might have been lacking.
