Self-Publishing Advice & Inspirations

Sep 26, 2021

My guest this episode is Mary Louisa Locke, who was first inspired to write back in 1979, when her academic research showed her the stories of some incredible 19th-century women. But it wasn't until after Mary Lou retired and began her new career as an indie author that she gave these women new life in historical fiction. Mary Lou's story is one of patience, perseverance, and a vision of the past as well as the future.
