  • I wanted to make a difference for young people. The book helps me make an impact.
  • I wanted to write about the things I wish I had known or if only someone had told me.
  • I hate writing. I spoke my book. I recorded my ideas and thoughts. It helps me stay in the creative space without worrying about punctuation and grammar.
  • I made sure I had a recording device easily accessible so I could record my ideas and add information later.
  • My advice is, “Do not do the journey alone. Get an editor.”
  • Be sure to look at the amount of energy and effort the publisher will put into your book.
  • The key is to just get started.
