Meet Audra R Upchurch, author of Unchain My Legacy: How Owning Our Choices Frees Us And Those We Love
It's a story about choices. We all make choices, and our choices have consequences; some good... some not so good. Many have an immediate impact on us, while others have a devastating effect on those we love for generations to come. What do we do about those? How do we break the cycle of pain, denial, struggle, poverty, and abuse? In Unchain My Legacy, twelve authors expose the truth of their stories; revealing the decisions that have threatened to shackle them, their children, and their children's children in a never-ending chain of bondage. As you read each story, you will feel the links of their chains being broken! You will hear them speaking to their issues and taking their lives back! They made the choice today to liberate their tomorrow. But what about you and your family? Do you want to be free to release your loved ones? The decision is yours and today is the day. It's time for you to Unchain Your Legacy!
Inspiration for Writing
Upchurch was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York in an extremely unstable household to a mother who suffered in silence with mental illness. As a result, she found herself homeless at the age of 15, a single-mother at 17 with a straight shot down a dark path. She used to be ashamed of her upbringing and the poor choices that followed. However, she now understands that owning and sharing our individual stories is an important ingredient for those looking to leave a lasting legacy.

She loves running. (completed 3 full marathons in a 12 month period in 2015. Yes, 26.2 miles each! LOL!). She finds running incredibly relaxing and came up with the idea for her first anthology while on a 5 mile run.
