AUTHOR: Mindy Jo Nino
My name is Mindy Jo Nino, and I live a very typical life. I grew up in the small border town of Del Rio, Texas. I am married, and we have four kids. After living in Tennessee for fourteen years, we moved to San Antonio, Texas, in 2018, where we now call home.
This is my first book, and it has taken me five years to write it. I was expecting to learn as I wrote, but I wasn’t expecting for it to take me on a healing journey. Hopefully, the next one won’t take so long.
Life is beautifully chaotic, and that’s exactly what we dive into. There wasn’t much diversity growing up in a small town; that fed my curiosity about women from all walks of life. And so was born a simplistic biography, of twenty unique and anonymous women, told through the answers to ten questions.
You’ll find that we explore how the simplest of questions have a deeper meaning. Trauma, experience, and healing play a part in each answer. We laugh, we cry, and sometimes we laugh until we cry. What you’ll find in these pages is just as unscripted as life itself. You’ll learn that asking a friend for honesty and vulnerability can be as difficult as catching a sober unicorn. Engaging with a stranger can be liberating. Connecting with one may sound silly, but give it a try…because your life is also a Beautiful Chaos.
