Featured Interview With LeTysha Montgomery
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I became an author 3 years ago during the pandemic. God told me that he wanted me to share my story with more women by becoming an author. I write about my journey with endometriosis. As well as the importance of advocating for yourself and your health. Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women but isn’t talked about much. I have lived in the Midwest my whole life. I think living in the Midwest is one of the reasons that it took decades for me to get an official endometriosis diagnosis. There are no official endometriosis specialists in my state and the closest one is 4 hours away in a neighboring state. No, I don’t have any pets.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I have been a lifelong reader. My fascination with books started in elementary school. I loved checking out books from both the school library and local public library. I have had my library card since I was 8 or 9 years old. I have always had a lot of books around. The Scholastic Book Fair was always one of my favorite days!
I officially started writing for my first collaborative book Women Inspiring Nations Volume 3- I’m Still Standing in September 2020. I was 39 years old and only had less than two weeks to write my chapter of 1,500 words.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I love to read Kimberla Larson Roby, Michelle Obama, and Sarah Jakes Roberts. I like non-fiction, Christian, fiction and thriller books. I get my inspiration from God because he is the one who wanted me to become an author.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
