As a very shy, meek, and insecure little girl, Diane Mullins grew up the youngest of seven children in an abusive family. Never shown or taught how to love or be loved, Diane grew up with no self-confidence or self-esteem. Who knew that it would take a near-fatal accident to help her find her way to self-love and spiritual freedom? In Dying to Belong, Diane shares her story that begins at the scene of a body- and spirit-crushing ATV accident. Forced to ride out of the wilderness area herself, she arrived at the hospital to discover broken bones, ruptured organs, and a punctured lung. She was literally on the doorstep of death. During the excruciating process of physical healing, Diane began exploring a spiritual journey that led to loving, accepting, and respecting herself. Diane learned the empowering lesson that by changing her thoughts and feelings, she has been able to live a life of freedom from negativity and pain.

Interview with Diane Mullins
What do you hope to accomplish by writing a book?
Since I learned how to love and respect myself during this journey, I am hoping to teach others how to love themselves, respect themselves, and build self-confidence. I firmly believe having more confidence could help resolve a significant number of problems in society, especially things such as bullying.
Who is your target market?
Originally, I thought of young women, but my target turned out to be much bigger than that. Anybody who wants to learn how to love or respect themselves, build self-esteem or self-confidence could benefit from my book.
Was it a childhood dream to write a book?
No, I never had any desire to write a book. As a young girl I had no idea what I wanted to do when I grew up, but an author was not even considered.
How long did it take you to write your book?
Altogether it took about 4 years to publish my book. I started out journaling with no intent to publish my thoughts and feelings. Writing a memoir requires a certain mindset to dig deep and express yourself, having deadlines and getting stressed out delayed my progress a few times.
If there is one thing you want readers to remember about you, what would it be?
That I was a very shy, insecure little girl with no dreams and desires that developed self-esteem and self-confidence. I want my readers to remember I am here to help them get over their hurdles.a Rafflecopter giveaway https://widget-prime.rafflecopter.com/launch.js
