Anthology Of Inspiring Stories Released

North Charleston – When asked the question, “Would you be interested in sharing a story from your life that could inspire other women?’ sixteen women answered “Yes.” If She Can … Inspiring Stories of Grit, Hope and Courage, features these brave women as they address issues so many women struggle with in today’s world: domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, poverty, low self-esteem, serious health challenges, broken hearts, miscarriages, bad bosses, and more. But these women all found a way to overcome.

“I didn’t know what sorts of stories women would be willing to share,” said Contributing Editor Katryna Johnson. “I just knew that I kept meeting fantastic women who had backstories that were so remarkable and so inspirational, but no one really knew what they had gone through. So I thought I’d gather their stories together and create a book.”
The project took five months of writing, editing, re-writing, and re-editing. There were tears. There were fears. Some have never shared their story publicly before. Some were previously published authors while for others, this was their first experience with publishing.

The contributors are Ann Beauchamp, Dr. Elizabeth Castle, Keisha Hawes, and Iskra Perez-Salcedo of Charleston, SC; Dr. Ja’Net Bishop, Camilla Herold, Kimberly Mills, Chrissy Mullins, and Robin Nazon of Summerville, SC; Michelle Bryant-Griffin and Demetria Johnson of Goose Creek, SC; Katryna Johnson of North Charleston, SC; Tianca Breedlove of Baltimore, MD; JL Coston of Chester, PA; Lynn DelGaudio of Morrisville, NC; and Mary Johnson of Salisbury, MD.

The book is the first publication of Mirelli Entrepreneur Training for Women, a women’s organization that provides training, coaching, and support for women in business headquartered in North Charleston, SC. There has been so much interest that a second edition is being planning for 2020. For more information, visit
