Some people in the media have referred to me as “the real life Kimmy Schmidt.” For those of you who don’t know, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a popular show on Netflix about a girl who is trapped in a cult in an underground bunker and then escapes to find herself starting life all over in New York City as a young adult. Like Kimmy, I spent most of my life cut off from the world and had to find my place in mainstream America as a young teenager after spending my life preparing for the Apocalypse. Below are some interviews and a few articles I’ve written about my experience in the Children of God cult and about the show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
Do you have questions about my book or writing?
THE CHILDREN OF GOD HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A HOT TOPIC FOR THE MEDIA. SOME PEOPLE THOUGHT MY STORY WAS INTERESTING SO THEY INTERVIEWED ME ABOUT MY EXPERIENCE GROWING UP IN THE CONTROVERSIAL CULT.
