It’s hard for me to regret anything, because when I think of the biggest mistakes I’ve made, knowledge, power, and growth were the endgame. And this may sound trite, but everything I’ve done, right or wrong, has made me who I am. I finally like that person. What I do regret is that when I’ve made mistakes, other people got hurt, too. As an example, for a long time, I wasn’t a good judge of character, and I put my faith and trust in the wrong people. Of course, in the end, I benefited with all I learned, but people who loved me suffered. Hard as it is to avoid sometimes, I never want to be the cause of another person’s pain.
2) Please explain more what you do.
I am the author of two poetry books, A Dark Rose Blooms and Remnants of Severed Chains, but I have another book targeted for release this fall: Deadly Veils Book One: Provenance of Bondage, the first novel of my fiction series. My books are primarily about healing—the process of people healing, especially women. I may unveil it in dramatic prose and thrilling tales, but healing is what’s going on. I am a person with many years of recovery, as well as a trauma survivor, and as I state in the preface of Remnants, the willingness to learn, grow, and evolve is among life’s greatest blessings. It saw me through one challenge after another. I believe learning, growing, healing, and evolving is a never-ending process. It's a path of waking up every day one step closer to authenticity and our best selves. If we’re following that path, we’re always getting wiser, better, stronger, and I love that. I am also a big cheerleader for those trudging on against all odds in the hopes of living their dreams.

4) What is your biggest life lesson?
It has to be what I’ve learned about narcissism and codependency—what I’ve learned about narcissistic abuse, about ego. I had to take a good look at the way I grew up, and I had to break these cycles. I wanted to learn everything I could about those subjects, and I’m still doing that. It’s hard when you see other people struggling with these same issues, having no idea what the problem is, because you want to fix it. You want to help them, and you can’t until they are ready to look at themselves. Sadly, for some, it never clicks that they might be the problem. It’s always everyone else. So I feel fortunate that I had enough empathy for myself and for others to examine my motives. I think you have to wake up every morning wanting to be the best person you can be. Then you can manage, on a day-to-day basis, all the things that get in the way of achieving that.
