211: Amy Sewell, Award Winning Documentarian & Author, On Her New Novel, Pocket8s, And Navigating The Creative Process

Amy Sewell is an award-winning documentarian and filmmaker, entrepreneur, and author of the new novel, Pocket8s, a page turning psychothriller, and thought provoking Winter Read.  You may have seen her famous documentary  MAD HOT BALLROOM on Showtime, read her book, She’s Out There! The Next Generation of Presidential Candidates (LifeTime Media, 2009), or seen her documentary, Whats Your Point Honey, but now she is shifting gears and expanding her creative repetoire. We talk about her new novel, why she picked the topics of euthanasia and poker as the theme, her pivot from non-fiction and documentaries to writing fiction, some great advice for creators and entrepreneurs, and the exercise and wellness that fuel her for success.
