Who Am I & Why I’m Sharing My Story @phetteogburn

Happy It-Looks-Like-It’s-Gonna-Be-Snowy-and-Wintery-In-Michigan-Forever Sunday!!!!

I spent all day yesterday packing and moving, so my hair is a mess, hence the furry, purple, faux Kangol I’m rocking today. But anyhoo…

Who Am I
I am…

A WRITER, STORY TELLER, PASSION SEEKER, PASSION ENTHUSIAST.

What this means is: I feel most comfortable writing than I do speaking. I enjoy sharing stories (story telling); it’s my passion and what I feel deeply about. And, I also get great satisfaction knowing someone is living their passion. Doing what she loves. Because the highest satisfaction is doing what we were brought here to do, ya know?

Why Am I Sharing My Story w/You?

Because…I wish someone had shared their stories with me as a kid, as a teen, as a young adult so that I didn’t feel so alone.

What story telling does is educate, enlighten, and let’s you know that there are other folks who are going or have gone through the same thing.

Stories give us HOPE. EMPOWER…and SAVES LIVES.

With the advent of FB, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, and other social media platforms, stories and messages are more easily conveyed and received, making them more accessible.

MY PASSION IS…

To educate, inform, and inspire women, teens, that it’s not too late to do what you were created to do! I do this by sharing my stories on my YouTube Channel, through my Books, and my social media outlets. Thanks so much for your feedback because it let’s me know that I’m on the right track.

Thanks for watching y’all.

The Author Formerly Known As…Phette Ogburn

Happy Sunday y’all.

I’m back again with a super short post & vid.

Some of you may have noticed that my website is http://www.phetteogburn.com and my Facebook is now Phette HOLLINS. Why is that?

My married name was OGBURN. When I got divorced almost 2 years ago, I went back to my maiden name. I am in the process of changing my website but am torn as to whether or not I should change my name as an author. My books are published under OGBURN, and I think it would cause more headache for me to start writing under my maiden name. I’m thinking about keeping OGBURN as it relates to my books and just use it as my pen name. What do y’all think? Does it even matter? Do y’all care one way or the other?

#Cheetah4UJai

To honor my cousin Jessica’s memory, her friends, my family & I rock cheetah print (and purple) because she loved it and wore it on a regular. Soooo…..

If you have pics of you rocking cheetah, send them to me at: hollinsphette@gmail.com OR follow me on Twitter and Facebook and make sure to add the hashtag #Cheetah4UJai, & I will shout you out on one or all of my social media channels.

Check out the vid for more details. And don’t forget to Like…share…subscribe…and comment. That’s not a whole lot to ask, is it?

**IT’S HERE –Innocence, GA is available**|#ebook only #Kindle #Nook #Smashwords

It’s here. It’s here. It’s finally HERRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

If you’ve been following this journey, then you know I’ve been waiting for this moment for almost 2 years. This book is so important to me and personal for me. While this book is fiction, it has many truths in it as well, one being the first time I experienced domestic abuse. Abuse in any form is NEVER okay. That is why this book is near and dear to my heart because I wasn’t aware how prevalent same-sex abuse was until I was in it.

So, what are you waiting for? You’ve waited long enough. Download your copy of Innocence, GA TODAY!!!

I published it as an e-book first and will eventually (very soon) offer it in paperback –after a few small tweaks are made. I didn’t want to make you wait any longer.

Thanks for your continued love and support.

YouTube Channel Video Launch Is HERE!!! @phetteogburn

It’s October 1st and guess what? My Vlog is in full effect. Are you as excited as I am? I hope so.

I created the video using the webcam on my laptop. A warning, the quality isn’t the best, but, I’m working with what I got, ya know? The take away message is still the same and that’s all that truly matters.

Check it out for yourself below and let me know what you think. If you haven’t done so, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel so that you don’t miss out whenever I post a new video.
