Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My name is Sarah. I'm a vegan, travel and spiritual lifestyle blogger who focuses on all topics towards a happy & healthy life.
Early on I discovered my passion for health, well-being and getting to know my own body.
Yet for the longest time I didn't know which career path I should take, and how my future should look like – there were just sooo many options 🙂
I eventually decided to follow my intuition and excitement; and so I started to create my own individual career. I began by travelling to India to become a certified yoga teacher. In India it became very clear that this is the path I want to walk on further – I became a student of an online school that trains certified health coaches.
I never thought I would ever write or even publish my own book; but you never know what happens next 🙂 Even though I never thought of really publishing anything, I have always loved to write, and express myself through words out on paper. Then one day I woke up and thought: If so many others can do it, why can't I? And so I sat down and began to write. I'm sure this first book won't be my last.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
I called my latest (and first) book "The Veganning".
I am a firm believer that we should never stop learning and exploring – no matter what kind of teacher we choose, there will always be something we didn't know or didn't see before.
In 2015 I had such an eye opening experience and I started to wonder why people are vegan. Everything I found during my researches shocked and fascinated me at the same time. There is so much that is not talked about – and so much of it is incredibly important information – that I devoted myself to help spread that message out into the world.
The Veganning is only the beginning…
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I would say that my creative side is switched on once the sun settles. When it is dark outside, and people usually go to bed; that's the time when words just flow out of me and onto paper.
When I was a student and had to do my homework I could never focus with any noises in the background. However, now I am super inspired by loud music – it seems as words scream into my ears they more easily flow out of my hands 🙂
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I have always loved books and reading. Mainly those who made me think and dream about the story, characters, history, stories in the back/on the side,… fascinated me most.
But also books about personal growth, building a business, following your passion, setting and achieving goals, … influenced me a lot!
What are you working on now?
I'm currently working on my online space over at yettoreveal.com
I created it a few years ago, yet I never was fully behind it and liked how it represented myself. I'm currently trying my best to make it my second skin – something that is really me.
Yet I have about 1 million further ideas and projects that I'm excited to get into.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I hope I won't disappoint anyone with my answer: but as I am really just starting out and this is my first book, I am currently in the process of discovering my best method of promoting my books.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Even though I am a new author, I would love to share something I have learned throughout my journey of writing and publishing my first book. My advice for anyone who wants or thinks about writing a book is: just start! It sounds so simple, yet for me it has been the hardest thing in the whole process. Once I made the decision to start and laid out a plan I could follow, it seemed to flow.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
It's a quote that was sent to me once:
Ideas won't keep; something must be done about them. – Alfred North Whitehead
What are you reading now?
I'm currently reading "the universe has your back" by Gabrielle Bernstein
What’s next for you as a writer?
Even though it is a goal/dream of mine to write more books, I for now will focus on my blog. I have big plans for it and would love to create some kind of online data/online magazine about all kinds of topics related to spirituality, personal growth, mindset, health, healthy & happy living, … that inspire, support and help others on their very own journey towards a life they love.
What is your favorite book of all time?
That's a hard thing to name only one! But I would say it is either "The Alchimist" or "Eat, Pray, Love"
