In this episode, I talk to Amie Kaufman and my friend Josephine. Amie is a New York Times Best Selling Author of books including the Illuminae Files, the Starbound Trilogy and her new book Ice Wolves (amongst many others).

This is what Amie has to say:

On writing:

I wanted to have a job that let me read a lot of books, travel a lot and do interesting things. I feel pretty lucky that this job lets me do that.
Everyone’s life is different when you have a lot of books. They let you go to lots of places without leaving the house.
Before I was a writer, I was a mediator – which was great because it taught me empathy which is necessary for writers.

What advice would you give your 9/10/11 year old self:

Don’t worry about what other people think. If something is important to you, then let it be important. The only person who can be you is you.
Everyone is different in ways that important. BE proud of who you are.

On failure:

It is not always a fun thing – but it is a good thing. If you are failing at something that means you are trying to do something.  If you don’t try to do something, that’s a pretty boring way to live.
