I got randomly broke up with after a 2 year relationship on a Sunday night, I couldn’t function. I emailed the SM first thing Monday morning that something came up in my personal life, unexpected but I needed to attend to it for the time being. Apologized and never looked back. He was a real human being with emotions, said stuff happens and never used it against me

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills.

I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
