Featured Interview With Marie Sarantakis
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
My name is Marie Sarantakis. I was born and raised in Winthrop Harbor, Illinois. A small and charming marina town. My parents owned a video store and jewelry store as I was growing up. I was homeschooled for a large part of my early education. I now live outside of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
I am a divorce attorney and run two companies, Sarantakis Law Group, Ltd., my law firm, and Adrikos, LLC, my coaching business.
I have a German Shepard named Athena who goes with me everywhere.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I've been obsessed with books ever since I was a child. I remember trying to write books before I could even hardly write my letters. While most kids loved the toy store, I much preferred to go to the bookstore.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I prefer non-fiction as I am a perpetual student. I want to learn about the world and how things work. I wouldn't say that I have a favorite author because my interests vary as to what is going on in my life at the moment.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
As a divorce attorney, I realized that narcissistic personality disorder is endemic and plagues our society in great numbers. Victims of narcissistic partners are often confused and hopeless when they first meet with me. They are in shock that their seemingly perfect marriage has come to an end. Many have discovered their spouses have been living double lives and only in retrospect come to realize the extent of the emotional abuse that they endured.
I wanted to reach a greater audience than just my client base, so I decided to write a book about the collective lessons I had learned going through the motions of countless narcissistic divorces. Ultimately, I hope to be able to instill a sense of joy and peace back into victims' lives, helping put their past experiences in perspective and encouraging them to come out stronger on the other side.
