Q: What inspired you to write, 30 Things That Scare Women About Themselves!

Q: How can you tell a good self-help book from a bad one?
A: I feel that every book is different, so if it helps you then it is a good book for you.
Q: What scares you about yourself?
A: I am scared of failure and having my child not like me. I didn’t like my bio-logical mom and I fear that will happen with my son and I. I find myself trying to exceed with what ever he wants or needs of me. We have a great relationship now and I hope it doesnt change.
