Hi, Deanna! Tell us what you love about this book
That's great! Can you share something unique that you learned during the writing and publishing of this book?
I learned that there is nothing as cathartic as sharing our experiences in writing. Words, sentences, and paragraphs give order and meaning to so many things that get thrown into our mental box of memories. We all have a story to tell. During my first book signing, the single most repeated comment was, “I have a story to tell.” I quickly began to focus on ways to empower and encourage others to share their own story in a way that is most meaningful to them. For Christmas, my aunt sent me a wonderful cookbook of favorite family receipts. I don’t cook. I’ll probably never use a single recipe, but open opening the package, I sat down and read the book cover to cover. You see each page had a paragraph or two about my aunt, most stories unbeknownst to me. Not everyone will write a book, but everyone can share their story.
What's coming down the road for you?
I love that title. Thank you, Deanna, for sharing yourself today.
About the Author:
Fruit of My Spirit is my first book. My “day job” is with The Planner’s Edge, an investment advisory firm in Washington State. The boss and I have been together for 22 years. Today I’m his Client Service Coordinator. I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of his practice and working with his clients. And since I telecommute, I have even more time to write! I live in Monroe, Washington in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I’m the mother of two delightful young men, one who has read the book and one who has decided it’s just way more information about Mom than he needs at this point in life. I’m active in my church, editing the monthly newsletter and playing the violin during worship services. I love to knit, I adore chocolate, and most important I enjoy a blessed marriage to my best friend, Kurt.
