People ask me…

People ask me how I can expose so much of myself in To Soften the Blow.  My response is I wish more people did the same thing.  If I’d had a book like this to read when I was growing up, I think it would have had a huge impact on me.  I think it would have helped to lesson my shame, my loneliness, and fear.  The line that was the driving force behind my writing was from Clarissa Pinkola Estes in Women Who Run with the Wolves.  “A womans’s main source of power is speaking candidly on her own behalf.”
