of a Woman

“I couldn’t stop reading your story!!! Thank you for trusting me with your words, your history, your heart. I loved the arc, the process, your awareness and your willingness to run head first into vulnerability. This book will serve to save the many souls who wish to shift from never believing they are enough to finding their voice with power and authenticity.”

“I became completely engrossed in this book. Page after page I experienced so many emotions alongside Jewels, cheering for her, crying for her, and smiling for her. She tells a story that is often difficult to absorb but she does it beautifully.“

Kim

“The book is fantastic. I really enjoyed it on so many levels – it was educational, emotional, shocking, heart-warming, and the list goes on…The Making of a Woman is not a book – it’s an experience.”

Adrian K.

“Beautifully written account of a life well-lived after many trials and tribulations. A deep look inside the struggles of addiction and the power to overcome every adversity. Channeling her inner goddess and using her strength and compassion as a female dominant to embrace and accept others and bring out their authentic self.”

“Reach for the light, despite the darkness.”
