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 my jobs had been extremely rewarding, all along the way, I always had my book project on the side.
In 2016, I spent a year living in California, dedicated to working as a full-time Positive Psychology Author creating the 'Finding Your Path Books Series'.
In 2018 traveled around Australia promoting the series. My main mission was to support and inspire youth through their major life transitions.
Now, I live in New York city and am currently launching the series internationally."
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 as a side project. 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."
