The Creative Journey with Author, Maya Linnell

Jun 24, 2021

This week on The Rural Rockstar Podcast I had the pleasure of speaking with Maya Linnell, three-time author, former country journalist, radio host, and blogger. Maya grew up with a book in hand, and an eager dream of wanting to one day write a book, however, that dream wasn’t vocalised until Maya had three children and wasn’t sure what was next for her. She took the idea of a dream, pulled inspiration from her daily life, from her local newspapers, and town chatter, and turned it into a reality. We discuss the community that comes with being an author, how the story isn’t just written on physical pages, but in your relationship with the readers and people connecting with you, and how living vulnerably is the best way to achieve this. 


This conversation with Maya is inspiring, uplifting, and joyful. I feel honoured to have had the opportunity to speak with her.
