It’s hard to live authentically when you’re trying to meet the expectations of everyone around you and denying the inner voices that know your truth. Grace Anne Stevens spent over sixty years hiding and denying her inner truth. In No! Maybe? Yes! Living My Truth, she shares not only her voice but many of her internal voices, as she journeyed from denying, to questioning, and finally accepting her truth, which led to transitioning her gender at the age of sixty-four.More than just a transgender memoir, this book is about relationships, both internal and external, about change and authenticity, and is uniquely informational, inspirational, and transformational to all who may question their own journey.
"As our society evolves, we are becoming more and more aware of gender issues, and a memoir like this is a big step toward helping some readers to better understand the struggles of a transgender person. Written with precision and passion, //Living My Truth// is both informative and inspirational, and it's beautiful to see how the author has used her own unique experience to educate others. An important read for everyone." - San Francisco Book Review
The best advice for authors, “Write what you know,” is counsel Grace Anne Stevens embraces in her weekly blog, “My Transgender Life,” for The Huffington Post.

She inspires everyone, in and out of the LGBT community, to follow their own truth and live their authentic lives. Musings on Living Authentically, shares the 2015 collection of her muse-inspired stories, inviting everyone to examine their own choices, to grow and become better human beings.
