Leslie Jamison is the author or the New York Times best seller the Empathy Exams. She is also someone who in her writing is willing to share about some of the most raw things that ever happened to her. In turn in her book people share the raw things that happened to them. I found about Leslie and her writing through my friend, who happened to be her older brother Julian Jamison. I got in touch with Leslie because I wanted to know more about what it’s like to share such intimate details of your life and your family’s life as your profession. We also chat about the business of writing and lots more.
Scott Carney and I continue our conversation about what makes books sell, what motivates him to write, what question he is trying to answer with all of his writing, what he think of Wim Hof and his strategy for talking to hard subjects. There are lots of good insights into the world and career of writing for anyone aspiring to be an author themselves.
Check out Scott’s newest book and New York Times best seller What Doesn’t Kill Us as well as his past works The Red Market and A Death on Diamond Mountain. The audio books are great for all those too if you are into being read to like I am!
