My name is: Alexandra Elle.
My book is called: After the Rain: Gentle Reminders for Healing, Courage, and Self-Love (October 2020).
My background before becoming an author was: As a full-time employee in the non-profit world. I also made jewelry on the side and had a skincare line. Those were my side hustles as I saved money and tried to find my purpose, passion and professional footing in life. I talk about my career and transition in depth in the chapter, “Change,” in After the Rain. It’s been nine years since my last traditional job; the time has flown.
I was inspired to write it when: I discovered writing to heal was my liberation.
It's about: My life.
The most unexpected takeaway is: We all have so much more soul work to do.
It’s a game-changer because: Our stories change lives.
My hope is that readers will: Feel less alone in their joys and struggles.
In times of darkness, it’s important to bring light to each other because: We need one another to survive.
My next book might be: Something that shifts the hearts of many more.
