    The Girl Who Wasn't Chosen

    The Girl Who Wasn't Chosen

    In this episode, Rich and cohost Wendy Beck have a conversation with A.y. Johlin.

    Fantasy author A.y. Johlin is a young adult author and her first book is The Girl Who Wasn't Chosen. In a nutshell, her stories center on young protagonists who go on exciting journeys. For some reason, she never outgrew fantasizing about slaying pirates and soaring on dragons.

    If A.y. isn't writing, she's probably reading. Her all-time favorite books are those written by Rick Riordan and Celeste Ng (she has a broad variety of tastes, she acknowledges!). For television, A.y. is a die-hard follower of both Umbrella Academy and High School Musical: The Series.

    Thank you to A.y. Johlin for the conversation. Here are some links for A.y.:

    She Became An Inspirational Speaker After Being Raped, Getting Sober, And Coming Out Of The Closet

    She Became An Inspirational Speaker After Being Raped, Getting Sober, And Coming Out Of The Closet

    In this episode, Rich has a conversation with Sara Webb.

    Sara Webb is an author, motivational speaker, and certified yoga teacher. She considers herself a spiritual activist, choosing this nomenclature as opposed to the traditional terminology of Coach. She advocates for clients and audiences to find their own power within by getting aligned with themselves spiritually, through introspection that begins with meditation.

    She inspires people to access the power within themselves by teaching pocket-sized techniques to process stress, improve daily happiness, and bring the best versions of themselves to their own lives.

    Sara lives in Florida with her powerhouse wife, three brilliant children, and too many four-legged fur babies to mention.
