Hosted by Dr. Meg Meeker | March 14, 2023 | 39 min

Episode 195 | Amy W Daughters is the Author of Dear Dana: That time I went crazy and wrote all 580 of my Facebook friends a handwritten letter.

Today's Guest(s)

A native Houstonian and a  graduate of The Texas Tech University, Amy W. Daughters has been a freelance  writer for more than a decade — mostly covering college football and  sometimes talking about her feelings.

Her debut novel, You Cannot Mess This Up: A True Story That  Never Happened (She  Writes Press, 2019), was selected as the Silver Winner for Humor in the 2019  Foreword INDIES and the Overall Winner for Humor/Comedy in the 2020 Next  Generation Indie Awards. An amateur historian, hack golfer, charlatan fashion  model, and regular on the ribbon dancing circuit, Amy — a proud former  resident of Blackwell, England, and Dayton, Ohio currently lives in Tomball,  Texas, a suburb of Houston. She is married to a foxy computer person, Willie,  and is the lucky mother of two amazing sons, Will and Matthew.


In this episode, Amy W Daughters shares with Dr. Meeker about doing something unexpected and outrageous.  She shares the process of how her book, Dear Dana – That Time I Went Crazy and Wrote All 580 of My Facebook Friends a Handwritten Letter, came about. Sometimes stepping out and doing things that God calls us to do isn’t glamorous, sometimes it is when we least expect it while sitting in yoga pants, eating ramen noodles.
