5 Q&A's with the series author, Amba:
1. What's your background & what do you do now?
"I grew up in Sydney, Australia, where I finished my psychology studies in 2012. My first job out of university was working as a psychological investigator, which I did until 2014 before moving to Singapore.
In Singapore, I worked at the Australian Embassy assisting Australian citizens.
While each job has been extremely rewarding, all along the way, I've always had my side book project.
I spent a year living in California in 2016, dedicated to working as a full-time Positive Psychology Author creating the 'Finding Your Path Books Series'.
In 2018, I travelled around Australia promoting the series. My main mission was to support and inspire youth through their major life transitions.
From 2019 to 2020, I lived in New York City where I launched the series internationally.
January 2021 saw us (my husband, daughter and I) relocate back to Sydney Australia where I now work as a Freelance Writer and Positive Psychology Coach."
2. When did you start writing the series?
"While the first book was originally self-published in September 2015, the idea was actually born another 11 years before this, when I finished high school in 2004 and had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do.
It wasn’t until my first year of full-time work in 2013, without having study commitments, that I began writing the book. I continued to work on the book in my spare time while I was employed for 3 years until being a full-time author in 2016.
In September 2017, the book was published by the International Publisher - HarperCollins."
