Write about one of your biggest successes. Why was it a challenge for you?
In December 2014 I finally published Pieces of Home, which I’d written about fifteen years ago. Lack of confidence in the traditional publishing process (where few books get chosen and even fewer books get promoted) made me hesitant to even try that route. When self-publishing became easier, I found the time to prioritize getting my first novel out there. Actually seeing the process to completion has been a major win for me.
