Every woman has her season and every season comes with a few showers. With the release of her new book, Single Girl Summer, Burrell hopes to equip women with a little bit of sunshine to better handle those rainy days.

Three women from all walks of life find time to find themselves during vulnerable moments throughout each of their lives. They rebuild themselves by healing together. Each character possesses her own plight that doesn’t offset any other character, but compliments it.

“I wanted to write a book about relationships and breakups about women in general,” she told the Defender.

Burrell was inspired to write the book from personal experiences.

“I’m divorced and my divorce was finalized in May and the season after that was summer. I came to a realization that, ‘Oh my gosh like, I’m single again in the summer!’ So I kept telling all my friends like, ‘it’s my Single Girl Summer,’” she said.

After going through her painful divorce Burrell credited her family and friends for showing their love and support. She then felt the she need to document and organize her feelings for other young women to see as they can all relate.

“I wanted to put that in a book and have people be able to relate to that process of having to move on and rebuild and find themselves

again,” she said.  

Burrell also penned a book of poems and essays, Voted ‘Most Creative’ – Perspectives on Life, Love, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
