Fabrienne “Fabs” Trebizo was born on August 29, 1977. She has written a manuscript about her childhood and how she was able to break the cycle. In the manuscript, she talks about how she was able to deal with obstacles that some never overcome. Suffering from a heroin-addicted father who tremendously abused her mother, Fabs witnessed this abuse as if it was an everyday routine. However, because of her circumstances she suffered so much pain and agony and tried to commit suicide.
Instead of learning from the terrible experiences, she started following the same cycle that she saw at her home. She ended up with the same kind of abusive relationships as a young woman. And just when she thought she was getting it together, two of the most influential people of her life passed away in a years time. Her turning point was when she acknowledged that her life wasn’t going anywhere and she was suffering deep inside. For the love of her children, she decided to leave her old self, the Fabs that she was accustomed to, and broke the cycle!
Fab’s educational background is in the Early Childhood Development Field. For 11 years she was an Executive Director at a Learning Facility where she worked with a diverse range of families and children from the ages of six weeks to 12 years old.
In 2011, Fabs was diagnosed with PTSD due to a traumatic experience at the workplace and decided to formulate a Non-Profit Organization that reaches families with such issues and helps change the thinking process of the youth at risk. Since 2013, she has successfully launched Coexist 13, an organization geared towards the youth. Coexist 13 has since successfully networked with an amazing group of people.
Interview With Winn Publications
Winn Publications: How did your journey as an author begin?
When I was younger I use to write stories and poetry. I loved writing. It wasn’t until when my oldest daughter was struggling with her identity that sparked me to write all my bad experiences down for her to read and understand she wasn’t alone
Winn Publications: Was it something you always wanted to pursue?
No, it was never my intention
Winn Publications: How was the publishing process?
Very easy and fast once everything was edited and laid out.
Winn Publications: Since becoming a published author, what challenges have you faced if any?
The most challenging aspect would be the exposure of my own flaws and experiences. Everyone is reading the real me. Kinda feel naked in public.
Winn Publications: Have you written anything outside of fiction/nonfiction?
Not as of yet. I tend to write my real life experiences
Winn Publications: Do you have a tip that you can offer your peers (poets and writers worldwide)?
The tips I have for any aspiring artist whether it’s in writing or any time of art is to jump out of your comfort zone. It is a very difficult process but do it anyway.
Are you currently working on any new projects? If so when can we expect them to be released?
I am working on book 2 titled spiritual awakening and it should be finished by the end of the year. Available through Winn publication and wherever she leads me.
Winn Publications: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I’m hoping to be touring with conferences and healing conventions all over the map.
Winn Publications: What does being an author mean to you?
Being an author means being free with words. It liberates my soul and speaks to the spirit.
Winn Publications: What is your favorite quote and who is it by?
My favorite quote would have to be “ you can’t control the things already set into motion.” -Sandy Offerman
Winn Publications: If you could co-author with anyone – dead or alive- who would it be and why?
If I could collaborate with any writer it would have to be Stephan King for his mystery imagination or Margaret Atwood for her real and raw stories.
