Meet author DR. Tanjia Coleman

1. What inspires you?

To ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to reach their full potential by believing in themselves and removing any systemic barriers.

2. If you could be anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

I am where I belong because I am surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones.

3. How did your writing process go?

I ensured that my heart was in it when I wrote. I took breaks to recalibrate and removed myself from writing to have a clear and revitalized vision moving when I returned to my writing.

4. Do you have any strange writing habits?

Yes, I have my best writing success from 8 pm until about 5 am. My mind is more precise, and I have fewer distractions from phone calls and emails.

5. What is your favourite quote?

You should never view your challenges as a disadvantage. Instead, it's important for you to understand that your experience facing and overcoming adversity is actually one of your biggest advantages. Former First Lady Michelle Obama

Nothing is Impossible; the word itself says, "I'm Possible!" - Audrey Hepburn

6. Is this your only book or are you working on more?

No, I previously wrote a book called Who Are We Journal. A Diversity and Inclusion journal created to Broaden Your Perspective. As a researcher, I have also co-authored several articles and journal publications.

7. What literary character is most like you?

I am an eternal optimist and problem-solver. So, I will say Sherlock Holmes in the sense of figuring out issues, how to solve them, and moving on to the next challenge.

8. What is the hardest thing about writing?

Staying committed and following through to just getting the novel/book completed. The next hurdle is editing to ensure the words align with your intentions.

9. What got left out of the final draft?

Testimonials from women that have overcome hurdles and can offer advice, as well as women that are dualpreneurs and how they manage this from a time perspective and how to navigate these working arrangements with their employers.

10. If you could tell your younger self anything what would it be?

Nothing. I have lived my life just as I intended. For me, it's important not to look back with regrets but to continue to move forward. Every opportunity, setback, and career shift prepared me for where I am today. Perhaps taking another route wouldn't have been as interesting, exciting, or fruitful.
