Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?
This is a love story about how to identify that man who is marriage material and then focus on making it work. It’s a book for women looking for marriage material but I loved it too. It’s earnest. Loving. Hopeful. And happy. Just like that special someone.
Qn 2: Who do you think would be interested in this book, is it directed at any particular market?
Single women and men, people looking for love, any woman that needs a little inspiration.
Qn 3: Out of all the books in the world, and all the authors, which are your favourite and why?
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. This book teaches us to never lose hope and find your own personal legend. When you really desire something, the universe will conspire and bring things to you. It teaches us to always listen to our gut (our heart) it will never fail us. Look for those Omens (the language of God) that the universe is giving us. It’s also true that there is something to learn from each negative or positive situation. It teaches us to use our hearts to overcome fears and obstacles, and if you fail, don’t give up in the process. We all have a dream and a personal legend to be discovered and fulfilled.
and of course my book: Marriage Material: How I found my husband. Maybe I am biased. But This is a short book and fun to read. It has emotional ups and downs as well. I enjoyed writing this book and sharing my story as I exploit as a single woman in an exciting dating scene and seeing my own emotional and spiritual growth as I learned how to love while I grew in my relationship with my husband Keith. I give some wise advice in the last chapter, and any single woman reading the book would do well to consider it
