I am so excited today to introduce to you Janet Perez Eckles. Janet is beyond inspiring. She writes inspirational non-fiction. She gets ideas while parasailing. And, she’s completely blind. What an encouragement to anyone! Please enjoy this interview, as she answers the questions posed by you, as much as I did.
Born in Bolivia, I brought with me my Latina flair, and passion for life. Both of which set the tone for my books, magazine articles and keynotes I delivered across the country.
And…almost forgot, I’m completely blind. So, I teach folks to see the best of life too.
2. Tell us about your current release.
Simply Salsa: Dancing Without Fear at God’s Fiesta danced its way to #1 in Amazon in August, 2011. But more importantly it continues to dance inspiration in thousands of readers’ hearts.
3. What inspired you to start writing, or did you always want to write?
After I lost my sight completely, God nudged me a bit, showing me what I could still do—hear, talk, walk, love and know how to find joy in everyday life. Then stories, insights and episodes with colorful descriptions swirled in me. Eventually they filled lines and chapters of my writing.
