Warrior’s aren't born, they are forged from the harsh experiences that shape them as they strive to defend what is sacred and true. And geniuses aren’t born either—or are they? Courtney Ramm would know, as she’s one of 229 offspring born from the controversial “Genius Sperm Bank”, a genetic experiment that existed in the 1980s and ‘90s. With a predisposition for “genius”, Courtney found herself driven toward success. Following her passion for dance, by the age of eight she was studying at the renowned School of American Ballet and soon thereafter, performing on New York’s greatest stages. At twenty-five years old, she acted upon a strong inner calling to start her own dance company—in Hawaii.

Moving across the globe from the concrete jungle of Manhattan to the tropical jungle in Hawaii, Courtney brought along her endless to-do lists and a strong determination to succeed. But one thing was missing from the picture-perfect life she had imagined: a perfect husband.


When she first locked eyes with Marcus at a spiritual gathering, she sensed something was off in the uncanny intensity of his stare. But she dove into a relationship anyway, not grasping the graveness and outright danger of the decision.


Eris Rising is a story of breaking deep karmic patterns, grappling with the calling of destiny, and changing long-held karma into mission. With the powerful feminine warrior spirit of Eris as inspiration, this memoir shows how it’s possible to move forward after life-altering “mistakes”, and recover the true “genius” within.


What was your main drive to write this book?

I went through a painful, toxic relationship that literally turned my life upside down. Rather than remain a victim, I wanted to find a way to transform my suffering into something that could help other people who are going through (or have gone through) similar experiences. I knew I was not alone and my story could inspire others.


What do you hope readers will learn by reading this book?

I hope that readers will learn that even in the darkest of times there is always a glimmer of hope you can find. The message of my book is truly one of empowerment and hope.


Did you do much research when planning this book?

Yes, I did research to help me write my memoir accurately. I dug up and read over my journals from that time in my life, and also read over relevant Notes on my phone, calenders, emails and text messages to help ensure accuracy.


Did you have any main people who helped you in the process of this book or influenced you to write it?

People in my life who knew what I was going through often said things like, “You’ve got a good novel here” and “you need to write a book about this”. My immediate family members were also very supportive of me writing, and there was no way I could have finished this book without their support.


How long did this book take you to write from initial thought to hitting publish?

The entire process took two years. I wrote the book in one year, then went through a few months of editing and then worked towards publication.


Do you have plans to write more about this topic or new topics?

I foresee writing another book one day, but most likely about a lighter topic!
