Jennifer Ellen Parkerabout this book: Writing to Live is the first book in a series of three. A Little Lift began with the simple question, "Why me?" I pledged to write every day for at least a year. Now almost two years later I continue to write each day and now have readers in fourteen countries, and over 150 states in the US.
I began writing from pain, feelings that were overwhelming and needed to be let go of before I could move forward in my life. Some feelings were left over from childhood and others picked up with a failed business, and two divorces under my belt. Women started following my journey each day but they were soon joined by men. The demographics are wide and open. I had thought it would be a narrow audience who would want to read my thoughts but it quickly branched out to include all ages, sexes, geographics, and people of all nations.
Writing to live came from my will to get passed a dark place in my life with my spirit still in tact. The cover was painted by my editor, friend, and teacher who stood beside me when I needed someone most to listen, share, and guide me through difficult times. The hardest part of writing came when I knew I needed to share some of the darkest moments of my life, not to scare or frighten others but for me to be real, authentic in my goals to show that one can rise from the ashes.
I learned humility from writing my book. I learned how to share the parts of me that I have kept hidden for most of my life. I learned that when you share your truth an incredible gift comes back to you tenfold, your authentic self.
You are not alone on your journey, through your struggles. Join me on mine and connect on levels you may never knew existed.
