Interview with Sam Hirschmann

What is the most surprising thing you discovered while writing your book(s)? 

How easily writing it came to me. It showed me that there doesn’t need to be any forcing when it comes to creativity and inspiration - you just have to be open and ready to listen!

Does one of the main characters hold a special place in your heart? If so, why? 

The main character of Sam holds a very special place in my heart as she reminds me of my own inner child who is always telling me to have more fun being myself and to always shine my light as big and bright as I wish. Even as an adult I find it’s easy to get frozen by the thought of others' opinions that I always need to hear this message periodically.

What is the key theme and/or message in the book? 

The message I wish to land on every reader’s heart is that we’re all born to “shine” and we all have a unique light to shine out into the world. This light when shown and expressed freely (by simply being ourselves) will not only make you feel good, but it also inspires those around you to do the same.

What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done? 

Leaving my career in finance to go to acting school and start something from ground zero. A lot of my friends and family thought I was crazy (including myself!) to leave a great and secure job and one I had worked so hard at. However, I knew the job wasn’t aligned with my authentic self and it would never bring me true joy. Making that scary jump ultimately ended up being the best decision I ever made. I met my husband in acting school and grew so much as a person…also, let’s just say I wouldn't have ever written this book!

What do you like about audiobooks? 

What I like most about listening to audiobooks is the ability to go on a walk while listening to a great book. Nothing transports me more than when I’m on a walk outside in nature while listening to a story.
