Today I’m really excited to be interviewing Yolanda De Iuliis author of The Memoirs of ‘I’.
Hi. Thank you for agreeing to do this interview. Tell me a little about yourself and your background? Hey! I am Yolanda and I come from a small town in Scotland. I am the author of ‘Underneath my Soul’ which is a poetic biographic book and of my new book, The Memoirs of ‘I’. I also study Classics & Modern Greek.
Please describe what your book is about in a few sentences. In The Memoirs of ‘I’, I cover the years 2014 to 2015, providing a daily encounter of my writings, visions, dreams and thoughts, allowing you to see the world from a different perspective. Philosophical and soulful, these memoirs offer an account of myself struggling to self reflect on a daily basis, presenting a wonderful insight into my mind.
How would you most like readers to respond to your book? I would like them to reflect and think, joining with my mind and develop their existence in some way.
What are 2-3 key points they can learn/take away from reading your book? I would say that people reading my memoir may start to think of their own life, reflecting on what makes them happy? Why they do the things they do and inspire them to be a better person. I hope any way..
Briefly, what led up to or what was the inspiration behind your book? I started my memoir for my own solace, as a diary format but began to write differently and it became natural to write and reflect which in turn ended up becoming a memoir of therapy and the reader became my best friend.
For a bit of fun – Something personal about you people may be surprised to know? I have travelled to every continent apart from Antartica.
