BBB: What inspired you to become an author?
MC: I have always loved to write but it didn’t pay the bills after college! I started my career in the non-profit sector where I worked for 8 years before going to law school. While in law school, I had three years of craziness in my life.
BBB: How did you come up with the idea for your book, Who Am I? How My Daughter Taught Me to Let Go and Live Again?
MC: I wrote about it for two reasons: First, postpartum depression still has a nasty stigma attached to it and women shouldn’t feel ashamed to seek treatment; and second, emotional abuse is a form of domestic violence and can be just as fatal.
BBB: Who designed your book cover?
MC: My friend, Ksen, (http://ksenijasavic.com) a brilliant photographer, took the picture on my cover a year before I even wrote the book. I loved that particular picture so much that I had it framed and it sits on my dresser. While I was writing my book, during periods of writer’s block, I would stare at the picture. Then one day, it finally dawned on me that that picture should be the book cover.
BBB: What are you currently working on?
MC: I am working on my first fiction novel - a crime fiction. I’m pretty excited about it! Hopefully, if all goes well, it should be published next summer.
BBB: How can readers discover more about you and your work?
