Meet the Author: Starfish Anthology Vol. 1 Claudette Ross

On November 14, 2023 Starfish Stories Publishing released its first annual anthology project: A collection of stories that bears witness to the extraordinary lives of stories of ordinary women. We intend to use this project to cultivate safe and sacred spaces for women to share their lives with one another and the world. 


In this special blog series, it is our honor to introduce these women to you 🙂 


Claudette Ross
Nova Scotia, Canada.


Why did you decide to participate in this project?

I felt led to share my story of boldness, as I’m sure at this very moment there is someone else going through a similar thing.


In one sentence, what is your chapter about?

Becoming strong enough to leave a toxic abusive marriage.


Who do you hope reads your chapter? Who is your chapter written for?

I hope women who are looking for hope will read this chapter.


What impact do you think your chapter will have on our readers’ lives?
I feel my chapter will give an impactful boost to someone feeling lost or stuck in an abusive relationship.


What have you learned about yourself from participating in this project?

I have learned that I have a voice to speak out to share my story to help other women.


If you could go back in time, and give your 10-year-old self some advice, encouragement, or wisdom, what would you want her to know?
To lean into God more, listen to Holy Spirit prompts, that I am beautiful on the inside and out. I am worthy and actually will have a positive ripple effect out to the world.


Why do you think other women should consider participating in a project/experience like this one?
Lives can be changed by sharing our stories. Giving hope to someone.


What is your favorite book of all time?

I have many, however my favorite book is The Living Word, the Bible.
