LM: I picked Inspirational because I feel like there are millions of women in this world who need to be inspired by someone else’s negative experience so they can see that they too can make it, and help somebody else with their story. It’s kinda of like my way of giving back to the world.

DW: What advice do you have for those who are looking to publish their first book?
