Katrina, how has your family background affected your writing, if it has?
My family background affected my writing in the way of breaking free to be me and breaking free to live.
What gave me the nerve to write my first book?
It was an inspiration through God when I was going through a separation/divorce from my ex husband.
Please describe your writing process
My writing process was long, challenging and there were times I did give up because I didnt believe in myself. I didnt have the confidence of presenting my work to the publics eyes.
Where you do your best work?
I do my best work away from distractions and into my quiet. Mostly, I love being around the sounds of water.
What is the Name of your book

Give us a Book Blurb
It’s about wounded individuals especially women, who have come from abusive relationships to abusing themselves and taking the courageous steps to walk through the journey of their personal healing and deliverance.
What goal did you have for your book?
The goal I originally had for my books and still do is to be able to stand before an audience who is hungry for change and to speak life, healing and deliverance unto them. To actually see my books on the shelves of stores and hear it broadcast on the radio stations.
How did you decide whether to self-publish or find a mainstream publisher?
I decided to self-publish because trying to find an agent was too costly, and if I was not a Juanita Bynum or Cindy Trimm, the agents were not taking new writers. Therefore, I took another route.
How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it?
I know the idea of writing this book was Good because it was not of myself that I write it. I didnt want to confront my own hidden issues, but I had to in order to write and finish the book. I know it is a good idea because it was all God’s doing.
