Digital Book Nook recently caught up with Sandrian Nelson-Moon, author of “Restored: A Journey from Abuse to Deliverance.” We are excited to share this insightful interview with our readers today.
When did you first discover that you enjoy writing and wanted to become a published author?
Initially I wouldn’t say I enjoyed writing honestly it became the one place I could release my feelings and that’s how and why I grew to love writing. For me it began because of molestation I encountered. I couldn’t tell anyone so I told myself, if that makes sense.
What is your favorite and the most challenging aspect of writing?
Hmmm I believe my most challenging aspect was at times having to maneuver how to market myself what to say there was so much to say but what do I reveal.
Tell us about your latest release.
Restored is about my journey with abduction and sexual trauma. The book details what happened after being raped and asked by my abductor to be his girlfriend, how I negotiated my escape! In the book I talk about how I dealt with the trauma to become the productive person I am today and I give strategies that I used to overcome my pain. The book is a tool to help prevent others from being abducted and is a way to motivate others to get through their own trauma journey.
How did you come up with the title of your book?
I was actually unsure of what to name it but the word restoration meant so much to me it resonated with my journey so I named it Restored
What do you hope readers are able to get from reading your story?
I pray readers find my openness about such a controversial issue refreshing I hope they connect with the story and that it helps others who have lived similar situations to find courage that they are not alone and that be motivated that they too can overcome it.
Who are some of your favorite authors?
Some of my favorite authors are: Tony Morrison, Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes and Louis Bennett-Coverley
Do you have any advice for writers looking to get published?
My advice would be no matter how hard writing seems if it is nothing it’s therapeutic. It’s transformational let it maneuver you to higher heights and greater peaks it is that powerful. Enjoy the process when you are finally at the pinnacle of publishing there is no greater feeling to see the fruits of your labor on those pages it will mean everything.
