AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR

The Making 

of a Woman

THE MAKING OF A WOMAN is the compelling autobiography of a dynamic female who refused to bow down to the circumstances of her birth. With a prevailing sense of self and survival, Jewels fought a hardscrabble war against the forces and people that populated her life in a way that often crushes others.

The Making of a Woman: Award Winning Book

Grady Harp

Top Literary Reviewer on Amazon & GoodReads 

“The quality of writing throughout this fascinating memoir is consistently honest and real.  Tender and enlightening, this book is a treasure for all who are challenged, especially women.”

Christine V.

LCSW, CDWF – Clinician 

“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.”

Kenlyn K.

“Jewels’ memoir is as complex as the tensions it explores: freedom vs. foundation, trauma vs. healing, isolation vs. community, vanilla sexual norms vs. female-centered sexuality, the feminization of poverty vs the power of making it on your own.”

Monica

“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.”
