Interview with Adina Balauru

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was a highschool's first page article about releasing our consciousness from the negative pressures of society and about the retrieval of joy for who we are. I was terrified to find out that my pure teen ideas (I was 16), which inspired me few hours in that afternoon, were to shock positively the teaching staff and the students in the next day. It was an ambitious highschool where we were prepared to become great school teachers, so their article feed-backs were weighing heavily in my eyes.
What is your writing process?
It is like a hunger to write and express useful ideas that may save some lives somewhere on the planet. I am grateful to all educational factors who shaped my personality today and gave me the gift to share information further. I know how is it like to have a need in your life and nobody to be able to help you, still someone else to have some key-solutions.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
During the years of economic crisis, hundreds and thousands of candidates had approached me as a recruiter. They were trying to understand what is happening within the jobs' market and within their own professional lives. What chances do they have for employment. How to survive and to reinvent themselves. They really needed to know which direction to go, they were scared and still are, many of them. Therefore I decided to do something in order to help not only them, but everybody who has the same needs. An ebook looked to me to be the best option to choose, as it is easy to afford, pertinently, applicable and it takes 2 hours to be read.

Due to my candidates urgency I had decided in the last moment to delay publishing my guide for single mothers and go on the stage firstly with "Help Me Find a Job, a Book About Career Change".
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I am inspired by the fact that, in the morning, my heart still beats for me, my brain still creates ideas, my hands and legs ask for activity and my lungs desire air with so much hunger; by the Sun which never sleeps, by the Earth which never stops rolling, by the rain which falls so gracefully, feeding every single soul on the planet, no matter what its purpose.

Life desires so much to wake me up every morning. How could I refuse it?
