Interview with Michelle Zarrin, author of 'From My Heart to Yours'


With an emotionally secure and sheltered upbringing, Sofia, was in for an unexpected ride when she married Earl. Their stable and unnerving union would take deeper turns as they experienced(?) health issues, betrayal and shattered hearts. With each new circumstance Sofia faced, she shed a layer of naiveté, deepening her perspective of life. Beautiful life lessons learned from preschool children healed her wounds and dissipated her scars. They taught her about the human condition at it’s purest. But then the biggest tragedy happened in Sofia’s life, leading her to seek deeper answers. At the end of the book (her story?), she learns that the art of life is how we deal with it’s struggles. Through a powerful and inspiring journey into the soul, she regains the light and love within. Purchase at: barnes and nobleamazon

 Thank you for your time in answering our questions Let’s begin by having you explain to us why you decided to write a book? 

My book “From My Heart to Yours: Based on a True Story” is inspired by my own life. You follow the character through love, loss, life and death. In the end, she realizes we are all here to learn lessons. The art of life is how we deal with our struggles. So I wrote this book to share all of the life lessons I have acquired.

Is this your first book? Yes Can you tell us a little about your publishing journey? 

My publishers were easy to work with and allowed me full control over my book.

What lessons do you feel you learned about the publishing industry? 

In my opinion, it is an industry that is more comfortable working with referrals from acclaimed authors or agents. There are more people who write books than get accepted by the big publishing houses. This is why self-publishing is becoming a very big trend.

If you had the chance to change something regarding how you got published, what would you change? 

I am comfortable with my journey.

Did you credit any person or organization with helping you get published? What’s the best advice you can give to aspiring authors?

Do not give up. The concept of writing a book can be overwhelming. But even if you write one page per day, by the end of one year, you will have a book.
