Desireé,Online Book Release The Wounded Warrior tell us about your book?

To the Wounded Warrior was born out of my heart for the purpose of being read as a healing guidebook for those who have been in abusive situations, especially within the Church and weren’t able to talk about it or be heard.

As a Personal Growth & Development Coach, key aspects of spiritual and emotional healing are always present in consultations and client sessions, so I’ve gathered them together in this Book.

How did you come up with idea for this book?

This Book originated from a series of unrelated Blogs that I’ve written over the years which the Lord instructed me to compile into one place.

What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book?

The most difficult aspect of writing this Book was my having to be mindful of my own personal experience with the subject matter, throughout the compilation and editing process.  Although I am healed and whole from my past situation, the emotions and memories had to be kept in check, so that they didn’t spew out in my writing and corrupt the message.

Why do you write?

Because I must! If I don’t write, the words and thoughts just stay jumbled up in my head and then it gets really crowded in there…

Who are your favorite authors?

Although I do not major in fictional writing, I absolutely love African-American fiction. Some of my favorite authors are:

Zora Neale Hurston – Toni Morrison- Alice Walker -Brandon Massey-      Langston Hughes – Pearl Cleage – Walter Mosley – Ernest Gaines – Octavia Butler – Suzan-Lori Parks

What books have most influenced your life?

Beyond the Bible, the books that have most influenced my life are Fairy Tales (Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, etc), the Classics (J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Edgar Allan Poe, Shakespeare, John Bunyan, Hannah Hurnard, Harper Lee) and books by Dr. Suess.

I love the creative ways of telling a story; of sharing a message or truth.

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

The writer that I would consider a mentor would be Maya Angelou, because she not only wrote the words, she lived them and taught the life lessons that she experienced and learned to so many others.

THE WOUNDED WARRIOR FB BANNERWhat valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?

That in God and His Word there is an answer for every concern… There really is!

Any advice to give to aspiring writers?

My best suggestion to an aspiring writer is write what excites you. Write what you’re passionate about. And, write what you know about.  You’re creating with words… Create something that you can read back to yourself and say “Now that’s good!”
