Welcome, Nicole. Please tell us about
your current release.
So He Hurt You Now What? Messages of
Hope for a Hurting Sister

is my voice in your ear telling you despite who hurt you, who betrayed you, and
who left, you will make it. It’s not the end of you and we need you to get
yourself together and LIVE again.
What inspired you to write this book?
After writing
my first book, women would contact me about being hurt. Some from infidelity,
but many just from being hurt. Pain is pain. I would minister to these women
via the phone and made sure I took time with them. Sometimes all we need is a
listening ear and an encouraging word. That’s why I wrote this book. I wrote it
to encourage my sisters.
Excerpt:
On this rollercoaster we
call life, each one of us has been given a choice to stay on or jump off.
Oftentimes, we find ourselves stuck in the seat, when all we have to do is un­buckle
the seatbelt and get off the ride. The choice is ours.
Sometimes we need a friend
to shake us and tell us to “wake up”.
As women, we love hard but
we hurt harder. When our heart has been broken it seems like no one
understands. I want you to know that I get it. I was there.
When we’re hurt we can
stay “stuck” or in that low place, feeling sorry for ourselves and creating the
bomb.com pity party for ourselves.
So He Hurt You, Now What?
Messages of Hope to a Hurting Sister
is my voice in your head telling you how special you are, despite
who left, walked away or betrayed you. 2
So He Hurt You, Now
What?
I want you to know they DO
NOT have power over you. They don’t dictate who you are or what you’ll be. When
we don’t eat, when we beg them to come back to us, and when we become that
“crazy” ex, we give them our POWER. We have allowed them to control us by their
negative actions towards us.
Hey
Girl—Take Your POWER Back!
What exciting story are you working on
next?
I am going to
take a stab in Christian Fiction for my next project.
When did you first consider yourself a
writer?
I never
really considered myself a writer. Writing has always been therapy to me.
I also wrote
but I wrote to heal.
Do you write full-time? If so, what’s
your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find
time to write?
No, I do not
write full time. I just left my corporate career as a professional fundraiser
to run my own non-profit, fundraising consulting and encourage women.
What would you say is your interesting
writing quirk?
I write on
anything… This is not always good as I have to remember translate my thoughts
from the scaps of paper to my computer.
As a child, what did you want to be
when you grew up?
A singer and
an actress. You can’t tell me I can’t sing. (even though most people think I
can’t ) But I still believe in me.
Anything additional you want to share
with the readers?
Thank you for
taking the time to showcase my work and thank the readers for stopping by. God
Bless You.
