  • What inspired you to write this book?

“I’ve always been a writer. However, I was inspired to start writing my book “An Amazing Mind” after losing my husband to suicide. I was motivated to support individuals in the world that are suffering with mental illness and don’t have the support and understanding they need.”

  • Was publishing hard?

“A good way to publish is by hiring a ghost writer or self publishing. Regardless to how you publish your book, the population that loves to read and collect books will always purchase hardcopy books. I personally like to read and purchase books as a hardcopy.”
