The Changing Season | An Interview with Steven Manchester

Like many of us, Steven Manchester had dreams of becoming a published author long before he ever started writing, and his writing career only began after transitioning from law enforcement to The National Guard, where he served in Operation Desert Storm in 1991. His journey is evidence that, regardless of your educational background or professional experience, you can become your own boss and begin a writing career at any time.

Between his family and his career, Steven only finds time to write for a couple of hours every day, yet he’s produced a prolific body of work. Just goes to show that, with the right business model – yes, writing and publishing is a business – and smart time management strategies, you, too, can write the book you’ve been putting off! If he can write four #1 bestsellers in the nooks and crannies of life, so can you!

In this episode, you will:

  • Learn how Steven transitioned from a career of law enforcement and military service to an entrepreneurial writing career
  • Discover why marketing is so important when endeavoring to publish your work
  • Hear about writing as a healing process, the joy of beginning a new project, and how Steven finds inspiration for his stories and characters
  • Learn how anchoring your body of work to a familiar place can be an incredible tool for you as a writer
  • Discover Steven’s most recent work, a coming of age story called The Changing Season
