Tell us all about your journey to become an author!
After 20 years in corporate retail, I made the decision to take a pause, and I resigned. It was the end of 2020, peak pandemic. While the decision was unexpected and not planned, I decided to take a chance on myself. I resigned from pushing myself to climb higher up the corporate ladder in exchange for the freedom to slow down and find purpose. It was the first time in my life I had the time and mental capacity to be fully present with myself and my family. It allowed me to tap into other skills I have always thought about exploring. I no longer felt torn between the corporate world, my family, and my personal growth. I believe the pandemic did this for a lot of working moms. It was time for me to reevaluate my priorities and my needs. With this new state of mind, I started writing. My journey began with the idea of creating a keepsake book for each of my children. Each story being unique to their personalities and real-life experiences. While it started as a hobby, it has evolved into much more. I am a self-taught writer who is inspired by motherhood. It is the beginning of my writing journey, and I am looking forward to sharing my stories and my journey with the world.
