In today’s episode, Lauren is joined by the amazing Talia Hibbert.
Talia has written 19 books and she’s only in her 20’s!
This talented writer is a USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author who enjoys writing diverse narratives that include marginalized people whose stories are rarely shared with the world.

During this candid conversation, you’ll hear Talia talk about her fascination for Romance literature and the importance of widening what normality means when writing this genre. She also talks about her writing habits, how she transitioned from self-publishing to traditional publishing, the why behind unpublishing some of her books, and so much more!
