Book cover for I'm Glad My Mom Died
Through writing, I feel power for maybe the first time in my life. I don’t have to say somebody else’s words. I can write my own. I can be myself for once.

“I think you have to have faith in people before they earn it. Otherwise it's not faith, right?”
Taylor Jenkins Reid, Daisy Jones & The Six

“All I will say is that you show up for your friends on their hardest days. And you hold their hand through the roughest parts. Life is about who is holding your hand and, I think, whose hand you commit to holding.”
Taylor Jenkins Reid, Daisy Jones & The Six

Kerry Hudson
“Here I was chasing my past, trying to piece things together but perhaps the real courage was in simply accepting the things that happen and learning to live with them.”
Kerry Hudson, Lowborn: Growing Up, Getting Away and Returning to Britain’s Poorest Towns

Vanessa Lillie
“This is probably the advice I didn’t want to hear, but it’s held true: just keep writing. No path is smooth or certain, but if you focus on your writing, you’ll be happier for it. Also, as much as you can, connect with other writers and readers. From Twitter to Instagram to in-person events, readings, and conferences, book people are the best people, and the more support you can gather and give, the happier you’ll be.”
Vanessa Lillie

Kerry Hudson
“I was a private investigator, digging my way through my own deeply buried secrets, both desperate for answers and fighting to keep them hidden.”
Kerry Hudson, Lowborn: Growing Up, Getting Away and Returning to Britain’s Poorest Towns
