Amazing story about L. Austen’s journey through chronic illness, finding out at 18 after years of being healthy and having to change her path. In so doing, L. Austen created her own online business (before COVID) as it allowed her flexibility to get to her medical appointments, and began getting her work published.
She also started her own Book Cover Design company and as a publishing expert, she aids other writers to complete their books. Her approach is one of patience and kindness, particularly because of her passion for being a disability advocate, and understanding her clients have different levels of energy.
We thank L. Austen for being a guest and sharing her story.
