My fabulous book trailer will be out soon! In the meantime, I’m supercharged and ready to introduce you to my latest literary works! I can’t wait to see you at one of my upcoming guest speaking or book signing events. This is when I really get to share with you, how my success began with understanding it was OK to share my story.
Want to see me in person, ask questions, or listen to my book readings? Check out my schedule to find out where I will pop up next.
My inspiration, those that are not strong enough to speak for themselves. My goal is to bring awareness and education to Domestic Violence, Workplace Violence, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault and other forms of Abuse. For businesses, I assist decision-makers with increasing their workplace environments by addressing workplace relations. The aim is to help leaders understand the current company environment by utilizing measurements to identify affecting factors, provide recommendations, and implement resolution i.e. education, referrals, etc. For individuals, I encourage a positive journey of self-discovery and personal development which focuses on the total aspects of self-awareness: Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual. But mostly, helping victims comprehend, It’s OK to Tell THEIR Story!

One of my missions is to always give back to the community. I truly believe that if we give-we will receive! I love making others happy and watching my efforts increase individuals and businesses in a positive way. For me, it’s all full circle now-My Story will now excel someone else’s success-Love it!
I can’t do everything and be everywhere. Lucky for me, I have a phenomenal Team of professionals which eases my transition into Author Awesomeness! Here you will find an attorney, personal life coach, beauty consultants, technical advisors and more. Some are individuals which personally assisted me during my self-discovery journey.

The Information You Provide
As you explore this Website, you will come across places in which we ask you to provide us voluntarily with information about yourself. In most of these instances we are seeking only your email address so that we can send you the specific information that you request, such as a newsletter or online subscription or purchase. In other instances, such as a contest, we request both your email address and your name (along with your contest answer), so that we can contact you by name in the event that you win. If you choose to purchase an item that may be offered by us through our direct sales service, we will need to collect additional information for billing and shipping, such as your full name, home address and credit card information. All of these activities–the subscriptions, contests and on-line purchases–are purely voluntary; if you do not wish to reveal your name, email address or other information, you are free simply to ignore these offerings. If you decide to participate, then (subject to the final paragraph of this section) we will not use your name or email address for any purpose other than as stated, and will not sell or rent your name or address to third parties not affiliated with us. If you purchase an item that may be offered at this Website, we may share your credit card information with an independent third party service whose function is to verify the information you provide, and we will store and make available information about recent purchases made through this Website using your password.
At other places in this Website, we ask for your feedback, opinion or suggestions, and provide you with a link for emailing us your response. We may also ask for your zip code or city of residence to gather geographical information about the visitors to this Website. If you send your email to us, it will include your email address in the “From” line. But again, (subject to the final paragraph of this section), we promise to use the email address we receive in this manner only for the purpose of responding to your questions or suggestions, and will not approach you with unsolicited offers or provide your email address to anyone else.
Another area in which we ask for your name is on bulletin boards or forums–places on this Website where you can participate in a discussion of a particular subject by posting written comments which are then entirely public. We ask for a name simply so that other people reading a string of comments will be able to determine which comments come from the same person. You may, therefore, provide a nickname or alias, if you prefer, so that your identity is not disclosed. You should be aware that if you do voluntarily disclose personally identifying information (e.g. user name, email address) on the bulletin boards or forums, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties. If you choose to participate anonymously, you should remember that you are still legally liable for the material you post, including claims of libel, invasion of privacy and copyright infringement.
Finally, provided that you OPT IN, and then unless and until you OPT OUT, we may use your name and/or email address, and survey responses you have provided: for customer service purposes, to send you news about this Website and Gwendolen Wilder’s books, and to give you the opportunity to participate in offers made by us and by our business partners and advertisers, as well as the publishers of Gwendolen Wilder’s books. We may also share your personally identifying information with a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets, or bankruptcy, by our owners. We may also disclose your personally identifying information as required or permitted by law, to protect the interests or safety of Law Office of Jon R. Disrud, Gwendolen Wilder, or a third party, or in an emergency situation. We may share with third parties aggregated information that does not identify you personally and is not personally identifying information.

We also ask you to check here regularly to see what our latest policies are, particularly those relating to children.

MoreIt's Ok To Tell My Story
In her spare time, Gwendolen works as an English language teacher, Sexual Harassment Compliance Training Instructor and encourages domestic violence victims at a local shelter to transition from addicts and victim to survivors. Gwendolen put her life experiences and her three degrees in Business Management, Social Services, and Applied Behav ioral Analysis to work developing checklists, action plans and providing resources to help readers break the cycle of abuse and live a survivor’ s life.
Gwendolen get’s asked all the time, What makes your story different from another victims? The answer, Nothing and Everything. Nothing because, her story is not more important as the victim before or after her. Everything, because she’s being unapologetic and vulnerable using her particular story to tell other victims 'It's OK to tell their story'. In doing so, hopefully bringing awareness to end victim blaming and educating people that there still are many many more victims out there and as a society, We Must" do something about this.
Gwendolen is single and at peace being the divorced parent to her awesome son, Donald Austin, and their puppy, Tank. She also went back to what she loves, which is counseling; she volunteered as a domestic violence group facilitator for Child Protective Service families, where she assisted with family reunification. Many people perceive domestic violence as not their problem because they don’t understand it or why victims choose to stay. Gwendolen is grateful to be able to share her fictional stories as a way of self-healing and in the hopes of helping other victims know they are not alone and that they are worthy to experience true love as God intended. Also, she wanted to arm friends, family, and coworkers with information to better understand domestic violence; this is why she is creating a self-management series.
The self-management series will be non-fiction books that use serious and lighthearted tones to discuss being on a journey of self-awareness to improve personal development. The seriesfocuses on the total aspects of self-awareness: Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual. The journey of self-awareness is a process and is not as easy as just wa lking to your car, it takes great resilience. Gwendolen uses her subject matter expertise and educational background in-conjunction with other resources and exercises, to inspire individuals in despair to break the cycles of low self-esteem, decreased happiness and discouragement.
