January will feature a team of two powerful writers who have have teamed up to share powerful and life-saving messages for women of all ages. Sharon Law Tucker, author of How to Be a BadAss – A Survival Guide for Women and P. A. Speers, author of Type 1 Sociopath – When Difficult People are More than Just Difficult People. “We found the messages in our books not only complement each other, but offer the readers unique tools to gain empowerment which is often lost at an early age.” They have developed sample audio-book previews of both books that other writers may be interested developing.
Sharon says, “I was born a strong powerful woman; I was raised to be a victim.” It wasn’t until she met and married her husband, a born survivor, she learned the lessons that helped her become who she is today. She now passes on those lessons of common sense everyday approach to living a BadAss life to young women of all ages.
Sharon is a co-founder of Three Gals Publishing and Program Manager for the Harry Singer Foundation. She serves on the Board of Carmel High School Foundation and Board Advisor to the Youth Arts Collective in Monterey. Sharon is proud of her ancestral heritage and served as Regent of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
P. A. Speers, Monterey County resident, is the co-author of The Inspired Caregiver – Finding Joy While Caring for Those You Love, and co-founder of Patient’s Pride, Inc. Speers has co-written numerous songs featured on television programs such as MTV-Making the Band, Desperate Housewives, Sex and the City, Chicken Soup for the Soul, Fox Sports, Access Hollywood, and many others. P.A. Speers has taken Rumi’s advice and purchased bewilderment. She lives her life in appreciation and wonderment moment by moment, breath by breath. Every day is a gift…and every moment is a chance to start over again.
