I was invited to do a Spotlight Q&A with fellow author, Diamante Lavendar. I happily answered her questions. There were a couple that really got me to thinking. I happily answered those as well.
A little about Diamante: She believes that everyone should try to leave their own positive mark in the world, to make it a better place for all. Writing is the way that she is attempting to leave her mark—one story at a time. Her book, Breaking The Silence, is a triple award winner in the category of Inspirational Fiction. Kudos to her!

Below is an excerpt from our Q&A on her blog.
Interview with Elda:
When my ex-husband cheated on me, I chose to take a look at myself as well. His actions were definitely of his own doing, but I had contributed to our disconnect on some level. It’s difficult for people to look at themselves, much less when they’ve been betrayed. I get that. However, I didn’t want to take unproductive patterns with me into a future relationship. And, I certainly wasn’t going to play the victim card. I wanted to get healthy. That’s what I wish for others, on a very large scale. My goal is not to eradicate infidelity, my mission is to bring awareness and do some educating while I’m at it. I’d like to switch up legislature too. I have a very long to-do list!
