064: Be Your Own Voice With Phyllis Piano

Phyllis Piano is an energetic woman with a thirst for life...and great wine! Her first novel, Hostile Takeover: A Love Story was recently awarded the Gold Seal by the Independent Book Publishers Association! The story draws from her experience as a corporate communications executive, merging office intrigue with romance. Her second book is with her publisher, her third is with her editor, and she's already started on her fourth! Phyllis is also an avid bread baker, food blogger, world traveler, and has homes in the U.S. and the UK. Phyllis shares how she rediscovered herself, after years of being too busy at work. She now wakes up at 5 a.m. thinking about recipes and writing and the people that she mentors. She says that it's good to live a little bit in your head, to let your imagination run wild, and to be true to who you are. After spending decades writing for the corporations that employed her, she feels a sense of freedom from being able to explore her creativity. She says, "Be your own voice. You have to be yourself." How did she begin her first novel? She says, "Chapter 1, page 1. I just started writing."
