5 Minutes, 5 Questions With…
Dorothy Hall, author of Endless Tears
“Endless Tears” tells the unfortunate stories of how children innocence are being stolen, how they are manipulated into keeping quiet and how they’re effected in the end.
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write “Endless Tears”?
Dorothy Hall: “Endless Tears” is something very close to my heart. I was a victim, and I too kept quiet for many years. When I had my breakthrough, I felt inspired to come clean, tell my story and the story of others. This was done in hopes of someone else being able to release their burden or what some call their hidden secrecy.
JP: What sets “Endless Tears” apart from other books in the same genre?
DH: A majority of books written on molestation are relevant because it happens daily. However, there are different individuals that see things differently, feel things differently and tell their stories differently.
I feel that “Endless Tears” is different because it’s told from a different author. It’s told from my viewpoint and from my feelings. I wrote this book to be read, thought about and analyzed.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that led to “Endless Tears” getting out to the public?
DH: The passion to protect the innocent, word of mouth, social media, by the grace of God and hopefully through you too, Joey.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish “Endless Tears”?
DH: I really couldn’t just give you a time. In between writing “Endless Tears”, I was working on another project. I was always pulled back to “Endless Tears”.
If i was forced to put a time frame on this book, I would say nine months. That’s not taking into account all the added work that had to be done between me and my editor.
JP: What’s next for Dorothy Hall?
