The Story Behind the Story: What Inspired Me to Write WORTH IT

Three weeks ago, I signed a contract with Wild Ink Publishing. This very personal story has simmered in my mind since 2007. And while this novel is based on my real-life experiences as a pregnant teen in poverty, this is also my daughter’s story. I hope you enjoy the backstory of how WORTH IT was born!
