XO Diva D: Behind the Hugs and Kisses, by yours truly coming next year. I’ve been home for three months now and my biggest priority has been writing my book. A lot has happened over the past twenty-five years and I’m thrilled (and scared lol!) to share this with you. I want to thank my friends for their constant support, love, dedication, and patience with me. I don’t know what I did to deserve such amazing people in my life, but I am forever grateful.

This book is dedicated to every single person in the world that has felt alone and has struggled but never gave up. This book is for all those who feel like nobody’s listening or there for you, this book is here for you. We aren’t alone and while it might seem like we are at times, we aren’t. There are so many people in this world that are afraid to speak up or just don’t know what to do and that’s why I wanted to start this. I dedicate this book to my family, my friends, my hero’s, but also every single person out there who has ever made me feel less than. If it weren’t for the things you did, said, and made me feel I wouldn’t be as strong as I am today.

Lastly, I dedicate this book to Britney Spears. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you and I don’t think I can fully express the gratitude and love I have for you. I will never be able to thank you enough for keeping my head high when I was at my worst. You are here for me when I struggle to this day and make me feel like I still have a purpose and I love you always.

Thank you again to everyone who has supported me and made me feel worthy of life. I love you all!! I can’t wait for this to be in your hands next year.
