Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have written 7 books so far. I started writing and publishing books when I was still single. Now, I am married with 3 kids. I first wrote about my life as a single lady. Surprisingly, I met my future husband during the book launch of my very first book. After that, I wrote a book for every new stage in my life. Since I am now a mother, I have also written 2 children’s books so far. These are Mommy Loves You Just the Same and Isay’s Skirt is Getting Smaller.
