Start Again: Inspiration from the Sunny Side of Adversity
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. – Anais Nin

​Within the pages of this inspirational book, five women share compelling stories of hard-won lessons from their experiences with sex trafficking, loss of a loved one, domestic violence, infidelity, and divorce. With courageous persistence, they harnessed universal laws of life and spiritual truths to transform their lives. Although their dances with adversity are not prescriptive, they are reflective of the resilience of the human spirit—a vital commodity in today’s increasingly complicated and precarious world.

​Start Again, Inspiration from the Sunny Side of Adversity is a collection of true stories from which you will glean inspiration and practical insight to brighten your path to self-discovery, reinvention, and greater resilience.

​There is no whining, blaming, or shaming within these accounts; these ladies own their stories and have used their difficulties for growth. They’ve turned their woes into wisdom and their sorrows into sunshine. Their stories will awaken the warrior in you! So, if you’re ready for a hefty dose of inspiration to ignite your belief and transformation, pull up a comfy chair as you soak up rays of inspiration from the sunny side of adversity.

San Francisco CA
After two decades of writing creative non-fiction for others, Carolyn steps out of the shadows to publish her first anthology of overcoming adversity. The theme of the book parallels her journey of self-discovery, resiliency, and reinvention.

Having worked in the corporate sector for most of her professional career, she traded in her suburban office space for a window seat to the world and became a flight attendant with a major carrier. When she is not soaring at 30,000 feet, she spends her time volunteering and honing her passion for photography, cooking, and creative writing.

Carolyn life’s work is to inspire women to identify and use their talents for self-empowerment and service to others. To that end, a portion of book sales is earmarked for organizations committed to helping women empower themselves.

A native of Chicago, IL, she currently resides in San Francisco, CA
