As you know book lovers I love learning about authors and the inspiration behind their work, it fascinates me and adds to the depth of the book because the reader will be able to better understand it. That is how the author spotlights were created because I soon discovered that you lovely readers ALSO love learning about author’s, so I am excited to tell you a little bit more about author Joffre McClung whose book The Heart of the Matter moved and inspired me from beginning to end. I personally would recommend this book to all of those that love spirituality and self-help books but really the book can be read by anybody as it is flawlessly written and highly enjoyable. With today’s author spotlight for Joffre McClung, a biography of the author and an interview between me and Joffre McClung will be shared, and I hope that you book lovers enjoy reading it! To kick this off here is an author bio about the wonderful Joffre McClung.

Joffre is a Spiritual/Personal Growth Author, Motivational Speaker, and Common Sense Advocate who was compelled to write her first book, HOW LEARNING TO SAY GOODBYE TAUGHT ME HOW TO LIVE/2015, Balboa Press, on spiritual growth because of the profound experiences of seeing her best friend battle breast cancer. Joffre began her career as a theatre actress and producer, having spent most of her adult life in New York City, where she acted and produced several Off-Broadway productions. An avid student of spiritual literature and techniques since the early 1980s, Joffre taught herself filmmaking and formed Sweet Moon Pictures Production Company back in the 1990’s. She wrote, produced, and directed two independent films with spiritual themes or overtones: Out of the Blue (1995) and Best Wishes (2002; winner of the “Spirit of the West Award”). Before moving back to Texas to care for her dying mother, she worked as a senior producer and director for a media broadcast Production Company in New York City for over fifteen years.

Her newest book, THE HEART OF THE MATTER (A Workbook and Guide to Finding Your Way Back to Self-love) 2017, Balboa Press, was born out of the work she did within to heal her wounds and beliefs of the past and move successfully and fully into self-love. Her passion now through her book, talks, and videos is to help everyone wake up, take the journey of self-discovery, and empower themselves through self-love.

Now, how wonderful does Joffre McClung sound?! Joffre McClung is a truly exceptional writer and I hope that you lovely readers have a read of Joffre McClung’s work because you will not regret it! Please see below an interview between me and Joffre McClung, I hope that you enjoy Joffre McClung’s answers to my questions, they are incredible and provide some great advice too!

In your own words could you please tell us about your book and what inspired you to write your book.

It is a workbook and guide that takes the esoteric idea of self-love and makes it accessible through discussions, practical steps, exercises, and meditations so you can rediscover the love that has been inside you all along. It is meant to guide you to your inner world where all transformation takes place and empower you to become your own healer, teacher, guide, and champion by redefining and working with love. Now having said all that, the bottom line is it is a book about love.

I wrote the book because after 30 years on the personal growth and spiritual path I realized that what I was doing with all the searching and exploring was looking for myself – looking for a way to know myself and through that knowing love myself. I wrote the book, so hopefully, others won’t take quite so long to come to that truth.

What would your advice be for aspiring writers?

Honor the idea.  You had the initial idea for a reason, so allow it to guide you.  That most likely will mean allowing it to go where it wants to go and not necessarily where you think it should go. The more you follow the idea’s path, the better. And one more thing, always remember that your voice and perspective are unique so don’t let anyone tell you to be something different.

In your opinion, what is the most important thing about a book?

The most important thing about the book is that it activates both the mind and the heart.  It guides the reader through the work to understand with the mind and to connect through the heart to the essential truth: We all are deserving of our love.

Are there any projects you are working on now?

Yes, I am doing a series of YouTube videos on self-love and I will be starting a common sense series for my YouTube channel over the summer.
