TM Witko’s writing style combines her knowledge of psychological principles with an understanding that things are never simply black or white, right or wrong, but that life is a beautiful combination of both. Her writing looks at every day issues in a new light to challenge the way we see the world and to recognize that things are not always what they seem.
