Gloria T. Anderson told CA: "Inspiring your heart and encouraging your soul—that's my passion and purpose in life! It took me nearly half a century to figure out what I am to do with my life and who I am. The reason I write is to help others discover their own unique value and worth, and to offer hope to those who need encouragement in the process.
"Real people with real issues motivate me to write the way I do—straightforward, without being preachy, judgmental, or condemning. I've found that life can be meaningful and joyous when we are true to ourselves and to our Creator. Knowing that has forever changed my destiny! I am most energized when sharing this with others, and I feel strongly that my role is to touch lives with the message of hope and love."
