A Q&A with the Publish Your Purpose Press Team
1. How did you come to work with PYP?
I met Jenn, Heather and Lisa in an amazing women’s networking organization that Heather founded.
2. What do you enjoy the most about your work?
When authors get the “a-ha” and realize that marketing doesn’t actually have to be icky and overwhelming. They begin to see that when it’s done well it can turn into good storytelling that begins to build their community.
3. What are your favorite books or genre?
I like a balance of non-fiction (inspirational bios, self-help and business) and fiction (Southern writers, dysfunctional families and historical fiction).
4. How do you spend your free time?
Skiing, boating or beaching with my boys and husband, seeing live music as much as possible and organizing fun gatherings and get-togethers!
5. If you could have dinner with anyone, past or present, who would it be?
The Avett Brothers—but preferably it would be a private concert with me, them and my sisters.
6. What is one thing very few people know about you?
I became a certified SCUBA diver at the age of 14.
7. How would you define your purpose?
To help people feel welcomed, comfortable and confident wherever they are—and to clarify, inspire, connect and promote them to where they were meant to be.
