Interview With Author Dr. Scott Stenzel


       1.      What motivated you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and turning it into this book? I was hoping to share my story to help as many folks as I can who dealt with similar circumstances. As a Doctor of Public Administration, I feel it is my duty to positively influence society as much as possible. It was also extremely therapeutic to put all of my experiences into words. 


  1. What is it about and who is it for? It is about my experiences with an emotionally abusive father and a shallow mother. It summarizes the events I dealt with, how I had to face it during deployments and how I forgave and moved forward. The book also provides recommendations for emotional abusers and for how the abused can move forward


  1. What takeaways might the reader will be left with after reading it? While emotional abuse may not leave visible scars, the abused will always feel them internally until they find a way to move forward and forgive their abusers.


  1. How did you decide on your book’s title and cover design? The title is based on one of the short stories of emotional abuse I suffered as a young child. I wanted the cover of the book to relate to the title but appear inspirational.


  1. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers? Write from your heart.


  1. What trends in the book world do you see -- and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading? This is the first book I have published, so not really sure. It does seem really challenging to convince folks that should have to interest to purchase the book.


  1. What challenges did you overcome to write this book? It was tough to reveal my very personal experiences without appearing weak or feeling as though I would be subject to stigmas. The first time I had a colleague read the book, I felt extremely vulnerable. I had to get over that.  

            8.  How would you describe your writing style? Informative 


  1. If people can buy or read one book this week or month, why should it be yours? It is not expensive, can be read in an hour in a half, inspirational, and includes some interesting and historical stories from my time in the Air Force.
