Author Interview, Beyond Embarrassment, reclaiming your life with neurogenic bladder and bowel, Part 2

Q. Do you have a mentor for writing publishing and speaking, and if so, how did you get that mentor?
A. I would have made so many mistakes without my mentors in the various steps with this book. My editors and book coaches have mentored me. Before I made a decision to find a publisher I joined the Palm Springs Writer’s Guild and I was paired with an author of multiple books, Jim Misko. He offered invaluable advice to keep me away from scammers in the publishing world. I also have a public speaking mentor for Toastmasters, Debbie O’Brian.

Q.How do you balance writing and home life and a social life?
A. I think being a writer is a different breed in itself. I am lucky because my family is patient with my sneaking off by myself to write. I know I am a thinker and I like to analyze things. I also like to carry a notepad around so when I think of things I can remember them by writing them down. Social life is not overly important to me. I enjoy my friends and family but I also like to write. I try to give each quality time.
