Meet the Author:

Marilyn R. Wilson is a freelance writer and editor with a passion for interviewing. It all began in 2006 when the she answered a Craigslist ad from a NY magazine asking for story submissions. Two were accepted. The first live interview was life changing and Wilson has never looked back. With over 150 interviews now behind her, the love of interviewing is still as strong as ever. Whether through a random encounter on the New York subway or via a “one-on-one” interview with an internationally recognized artist, the goal is the same—to share the unique journeys of inspiring individuals.

In 2007, this goal led the author to co-launch a successful, innovative magazine focused on professionals working in the fashion industry, paired with photography and illustrations by local artists. Now on staff at Raine Magazine (NY/Miami/LA), as well as freelancing for other publications, Wilson has taken her passion to a new audience with the release of her first book.

Personal Opinion:

A very beautiful and inspirational collection of interviews about people that have done the impossible and made something of themselves and gave a lot to community. What I loved is that the author focuses more on achievements of the people, especially women, rather than just family and children, and I feel that if she does include that topic, its something that the person wants. Some of my favorite stories from the book were Caroine McGillivray, Pamela Masik, Geir Ness and so forth. The book also deals more with art and creativity, inspiration for those that are creative but aren't quite sure what to do with their talents yet and challenges people to think differently and to be determined and not to give up no matter the odds.
