Author KJ Dunn

KjDunn was born and raised in Texas. She is a wife, mother, daughter, sister, mentor, and friend. She began writing at a young age and noticed in 5th grade the potential of her poetry. Her sophomore year, Robert “OG Bobby” Cox, her English teacher gave her a challenge to push past poetry and tap into her full writing capability. Her imagination is endless and her writing is real, raw, and transparent. Although “My Mother’s Daughter” is her first published book, she looks forward to creating more relatable material to promote hope and freedom.

PWH: What inspired you to start writing?

KJ: Honestly, LIFE! I had a lot going on when I was a kid and I had a teacher who would make us journal every day. Then we learned poetry. From there, I was hooked.

PWH: How would you describe your writing style?

KJ: Organically, I just flow. My finger touches the keys or the pen/pencil and I just start writing. No real plan or heavy thought. 

PWH: What does a typical writing session look like for you?

KJ: A yeti cup full of tea, silence, and my CPU or notebook. PWH: What inspired the title “My Mother’s Daughter”? KJ: Growing up as a kid who was abused and scared into silence, it formed a huge wedge in my relationship with my mother. As I grew older, I realized, there were more women in the world like me. All of us, afraid to heal and be free. I took small steps, then huge leaps with mending the relationship with my mom. It was a long, hard process but through me taking those steps, I was able to discover how much we had in common. It became clear that I was chosen to carry the torch because I was her daughter.  That mandate to tear down the strongholds and generational curses fell into my lap. I couldn’t fail the women that will grow in lineage. Then I got to thinking, how many others could benefit from hearing my story?

PWH: What message do you hope readers gain from reading your story?

KJ: I hope that people read my story and see a light. I hope that they see a chance to heal and flourish. I hope that this book helps people change their perspective in some areas and start the conversation to heal the mother-daughter relationship. Childhood trauma is not an easy thing to escape but it most definitely is possible. The one thing that I have been saying a lot is that their voice has SOUND. You don’t have to be silent anymore. Your healing and your peace for that little girl who is stuck in captivity in your mind,  is yours for the taking.

The New Artificial Intelligence: Risk or Reward?

One of the most significant risks posed by AI is the potential for data breaches. AI systems rely on vast amounts of data to function, and if that data falls into the wrong hands, it can be used to steal sensitive information or launch targeted attacks. For example, a hacker could use AI to analyze a company’s social media accounts, email correspondence, and other publicly available information to identify potential targets for phishing attacks or other forms of social engineering. They could also use AI to analyze a company’s network traffic and identify vulnerabilities that could be exploited to gain access to sensitive data.
