Emily McKaskle grew up in the 70’s during a time when girls “didn’t have ADHD,” so when she started struggling with reading in the 2nd grade her teacher dismissed her as just not being very bright and left it at that. It wasn’t until she discovered a Harlequin Romance novel at age 11 that her passion for reading, and therefore her reading ability, skyrocketed.
Now, Emily is now an award-winning author of nearly forty books and co-founder of her own company, Book+Love Ink. Her impressive leap from struggling reader to bestselling author definitely improved her confidence, but the imposter syndrome and rejection sensitive dysphoria never really went away.
Join our conversation as Emily shares how she quiets that negative voice by incorporating gratitude and positive emotion into her writing process, what’s changed since getting her ADHD diagnosis, how she survives the brutal book editing process, and much more. Emily’s journey just goes to show how crucial interest is for the ADHD brain and what we’re capable of when we follow it, and I’m so excited to share her story with you this episode.
