I am a mother, wife and former high school teacher. I live in the Midwest with my family and am currently a customer service representative. Endopocalypse is my first novel. I was officially diagnosed with Endometriosis in November 2014. Having Insomnia allows me a lot of time to do the things I enjoy: crafts, reading, writing, playing video games and playing with my pets.
Who should read this book?
At first I thought I was writing for the purpose of sharing with other women who suffer from Endometriosis to show them that they are not alone. Then I realized it is probably more important that anyone who loves someone who suffers or especially doctors who treat women who suffer should be the ones reading so they can see and feel what it is like and be more empathetic.
When did you first start writing?
I have been writing off and on as long as I have known how. My sister always told me I should publish. Endopocalypse is the first book I have ever finished. I was inspired to share my personal story because of the experiences I have had in the last year with Endometriosis. It is a painful disease and what makes it more painful is the way that people treat you when they don't understand or can't see your illness and especially the way doctors treat their patients. I wanted to raise awareness and show support for my Endo Sisters that they are not alone.
