“The Future Belongs to Those Who Believe in the Beauty of their Dreams” - Eleanor Roosevelt
Meg Waite Clayton is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of four novels, including The Wednesday Sisters and The Wednesday Daughters, and she's written for the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, The San Jose Mercury News, and Forbes, about the challenges women face--a topic her novels address. But she didn't start out as a successful writer, or even as a writer.
“I started out with no idea how one went about becoming a writer of any sort—much less any faith in my own talent.”
In a candid & intimate conversation, Meg will share her story, her hero’s journey, of how she went from being a lawyer to taking risks and following her dream rather than the money. Meg will discuss how she made the leap from legal career to pursuing a lifelong dream, the risks she took, the anxieties, failures & obstacles she overcame, and the lessons she learned.
