Creating a Legacy with Katherine Paterson

My guest today is literally a living legend — one of a small handful of people selected by the Library of Congress for their contributions to society. She’s the author of many books, a few of which have also become movies. One of the many is the beloved novel, Bridge to Terabithia read in 4th through 6th-grade schools around the world.

We talked about career, writing, balancing family and work goals, loss and how she got started as a writer later in life than many (which I found to be very encouraging).

Also, I ask all of my guests if there’s anything they’d like to invite listeners to do. Her response is stopped me in my tracks. Make sure to listen through to it.

These are the questions the Elle faced.

We got to talk about her project: Over the Moon Magazine.  Why she ultimately pulled the plug on it.  And fun things she’s doing now

The Benefits of Mindful Journaling with Marc Champagne

Is journaling helpful?  What is mindful journaling, what are it’s benefits, and how do you do it?

Marc created Kyo out of his own need and desire.  As it grew, he was faced with a decision— should he risk big and quit a job he loved to pursue a passion project or play it safe?​
