9-11 Survivor Releases Her Bestselling Memoir!

Annabel Quintero M.Ed. Launches Her First Book " STEP STEP JUMP: Transforming Trauma to Triumph from the 46th Floor"

"...a memoir to remember. Annabel gives you hope about the power to survive."

    SEATTLE, WA, June 01, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- On May 27, 2021, the 20th anniversary year of the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, survivor Annabel Quintero M.ED., released his first book "STEP STEP JUMP: Transforming Trauma to Triumph from the 46th Floor" through Amazon and the book immediately became a Best Seller!

September 11th was the tragedy that changed a nation. For Annabel Quintero, a survivor who escaped from the 46th floor of Tower 1, it was the trauma that sparked a lifelong journey of cultural reckoning, identity exploration, and spiritual evolution. Raised by Ecuadorian immigrant parents in the Pacific Northwest, Quintero had always dreamed of pursuing her passions in the city that never sleeps. However, she never imagined that experiencing the real-life nightmare of one of the deadliest attacks on U.S. soil would lead her down a path rich with history, heart, and all that it means to be human.

Step, Step, Jump is named after the way her feet raced down the stairway of the Twin Towers on that fateful fall morning. But it is also a life philosophy formed in the months and years that followed, a map for processing trauma and harnessing one's true potential. Quintero's debut memoir combines riveting storytelling, compelling insight, and triumphant lived experiences to bring depth and meaning to one of modern times' greatest tragedies, and beyond.

"STEP STEP JUMP: Transforming Trauma to Triumph from the 46th Floor" is an in-depth, first-person account of escaping the 46th floor of the Tower One of the World Trade Center, but it is not only a story of that day. It is also an examination of the American immigrant experience, a study of spirituality in a secular world, a look at divine intervention in times of crisis, and an exploration of empathy against the backdrop of the financial and societal forces that shape the globe. Quintero's successful safe escape from the 46th floor of the crumbling tower caused her to question the world, embrace her Indigenous roots, examine cultural structures, redefine her spirituality, and ultimately set her life on a course for healing and empowerment. The story provides a rich source of inspiration for others who want to drive radical positive change in their own lives.

"All the brightness had faded, and where I had been sitting was suddenly washed with tones of muted gray. To me, it was a clear message: this is no place for the living….I was confused. I was terrified and unprepared. I told myself, Annabel, you have to try to get out of the building, even if you have to die trying." p.45

Author Annabel Quintero offers these insights to readers "We all have our life altering moments, that are out of our control, and that shape our patterns, triggers and traumas. I ask, how are you practicing self-reflection and self-awareness? and what is your jump? Your new action? My book is asking the world; your greatness is calling on you through your trauma, so are you ready to step step jump?"

"Where were you on 9-11? We each have a very personal answer to that question. Annabel's book captured my heart and attention from page one. Following her journey from that impactful tragedy to how she's healing and serving others, today, is inspiring!" says Kathy Kidd, CEO of Authorpreneur Network.

"Her journey of self-discovery shows us how passion, courage, and determination keeps you on a path of self-discovery and the importance of living your dreams." Fran Sheff-Mauer, Brand Director of Stars of Hope USA and New York Says Thank You Foundation

"...a memoir to remember. Annabel gives you hope about the power to survive."
