In episode 8, Suzanne talks to Sally Hepworth. Sally started out her career in event management and HR, but it was while she was on maternity leave with her first child that she finally followed her instinct for writing and penned her first novel.

Her first book, the Secrets of Midwives, was the top selling debut novel in Australia in 2015. Fast forward a few years later, and Sally is the best selling author of five books.

Sally talks about about her career journey and how she made the change out of her HR career and into full time writing. She has some valuable advice about not giving up in the face of rejection.
