When Rory Green was eight, she realized her mother author Jackie Collins was famous.  On a book tour in Australia, she experienced the paparazzi and her mother’s nightly appearances on talk shows.  Raised to believe she could do anything, and knowing she too was a writer, Rory struggled with the fear of falling short in her own literary career under the shadow of such a legend.  When she developed breast cancer, at the same time as her mom was dying of breast cancer, and her grandmother had died of breast cancer, she felt there was a long held trauma she would fight… and she did.  Today she opens candidly about her relationship with Jackie, and her own writing career as a guide and coach.     If you think YOU should write a book, head on over to A Story Inside Books, and sign up for our newsletter to learn how we help our clients write books that can achieve best seller status. www.astoryinside.com Connect with Rory: http://www.writetobeyou.com
Martial Artist Sister Nau Ti has trained with the best in the hard and soft styles of martial arts.  As a queer black female who was raised in South Central Los Angeles where gang affiliation was the norm, and after time in the US Airforce, she had a close friend taken out by the violence.  This experience set her on a  journey of further understanding awareness of our surroundings and how we make choices every day to practice self-defense.  As her book coach, I had the privilege to partake in deep discussions with her in writing her book on  how to pre-empt the “great fight” society seems to always push towards us, and live in peace.   If you think YOU should write a book, head on over to A Story Inside Books, and sign up for our newsletter to learn how we help our clients write books that can achieve best seller status. www.astoryinside.com You can connect with Sister Nau-T @: https://www.instagram.com/sisnaut/
Crowdsurf co-founder and marketing expert Cassie Petrey has been on the Forbes’ “30 Under 30”, Variety’s "Hollywood's New Leaders in Digital” and named one of Billboard’s Digital Power Players in 2018 and 2019.   In our talk, we look at how her generation is still grappling with the same level of problems of gender equality in accolades, but also women making time in their busy lives to market themselves.  She started to create her own content to fill the lack of celebrity female executives on social media with powerful voices and messaging. She loves the short poignant content that she calls “word surgery” that one can do on Twitter. Since she works with teen pop artists, a lot of young people follow her, and can relate when she is honest about anxiety. I was very touched that she makes herself available to anyone who needs to talk through their troubles on DM or email.  If you think YOU should write a book, head on over to A Story Inside Books, and sign up for our newsletter to learn how we help our clients write books that can achieve best seller status. www.astoryinside.com

Entertainer, dancer, and entrepreneur Pepz Javier moved from the Dominican Republic to the East Coast as a kid and found his roots in the arts. Not speaking English until he was 11, he never saw immigrants like himself make it growing up aside from J Lo. He eventually had to face his own benchmarks - a gay Latino male, the artistry, and a desire to break a glass ceiling. We can all relate to Pepz's story because we all have those ceilings to break, regardless of gender, race, or sexual preference.

Gale will forever be known as my first book client. After completing her first draft, she took a four-year journey seeking to understand WHY she was writing this book about money and the planet. But ultimately she needed to discover her voice as an author. Deeply intuitive, a Dowser and reader of the Akashic Records, she couldn't move forward until she felt at peace with her potent topic, Money. I would ask her, "But where are you in the book? Where is Gale?" Through a variety of life's twists and turns which included a near-death accident, she found her book voice. I am pleased to say her book, Money, Dance with Me, will finally be released this year and was worth the wait.

Now he rocket launches authors in the publishing space on a high level to lists like Wall Street Journal Top Ten.
Jamice Oxley debunks the theory that you can’t have it all in motherhood. She breaks down how women can be victims to information that isn’t personal to them. The antidote was to lean on her values and to dispel the fear of being judged for having a family, husband and a highly respected position in a top LA entertainment law firm representing clients such as Facebook. From there, she was free to lean on her brain and instincts to be a fierce advocate for her creative clients. She talks about negotiation, the conundrum of power and powerlessness, and has a book of her own in the works.

Board Certified Holistic Health Coach Jill Anenberg Lawrence is all about eating so you don’t wake up with a sugar hangover. She makes wellness fun by sprinkling her how-to videos and workshops with dirty humor. I appreciate her ballsy Italian approach to life and her chemical-free house mantras. She packs great tips into our time together that may not make you look as hot as she does, but at least feel like you are. She swore so much in this episode we had to make it explicit.
It’s a scary time to be Chinese American in America with COVID 19… but this isn’t Stephanie’s first experience with racism. She wanted to write a book 30 years ago about the hidden intersections of Asian American and African American communities in the US. Stephanie is open about growing up in a verbally violent home in Philly with a father who came from a war-torn country. She knew as a young girl she would align with people who felt marginalized, afraid but overcame. A social justice advocate, and beautiful essayist, she refers to herself as a courageous “chicken.” I think she is… an eagle.
Not many people can say they have interned at a maximum-security men's prison as an Art Therapist. Amanda started the program with one courageous inmate and it catapulted to three dozen! She leaned on her Quaker upbringing for the foundation of service. She is certified as a Police Officer and worked in both the public and private sectors of law enforcement until significant personal setbacks found her in Texas, then Chicago, and today working two jobs as an independent woman standing on her own two feet.
