Jillian Coburn Author of “My Ugly Truth: Life Beyond Abuse”

Entrepreneur and recently published author Jillian Coburn has just released her book, “My Ugly Truth: Life Beyond Abuse”, available now on Amazon. It is about a riveting story about addiction, abuse, and recovery. Jillian joined Hip New Jersey’s Vanessa Coppes all the way from Texas to share her journey through this very personal book.

In “My Ugly Truth”, Jillian speaks on sensitive subjects about drug and sexual abuse, all the while living in a societal barrier in her community. Once becoming pregnant at age 18, Jillian felt as though she was stuck and could not make choices on her own.

This raw autobiography takes us through Jillian’s recovery process, using her voice and experiences to empower women to make choices for themselves, through the eyes of someone who has gone through the same. The cycle of abuse is not easy to break, and her hopes are to be able to connect and speak to women who are stuck underneath the grip of abuse and do not know where else to turn.

As an entrepreneur, inventor, outdoorswoman, and mother of three children, Jillian says her saving grace was her husband, Lonnie and her family. She shares a tear-jerking moment of her daughter reading her book and being inspired to live her life and make choices for herself, just like her mother.

This truly is an incredible book written by a strong woman with the resources and tools to help other women in difficult situations. Make sure to purchase “My Ugly Truth: Life Beyond Abuse” on Amazon and check out Author Jillian Coburn on Facebook and Instagram, as well as her website.
