Episode 83, release date Monday 2nd October, 2017
Amelia Hay is the author of the soon to be published, James Lalonde thriller Novels, a seven novel series.
When she's not writing thrillers, Amelia loves to travel and coach aspiring writers.
She helps authors to write, brand, and market their books so they can, create their dream business, build their author platform, and be creatively independent.
As a teenager, Amelia dreamed of being a writer but, but made one mistake – she listened to the never-ending brigade of negative voices around her who all said the same thing ‘you can’t make money writing.’
In 2011, she started taking her writing seriously, studying the craft of storytelling through screenwriting – then turned to writing fiction novels and independent publishing because she wanted people to read her work instead of it sitting in an archive somewhere waiting many years to be made into a film.
