In this episode, we talk with James L. Rubart about his story of overcoming rejection and self-doubt.

James L. Rubart is 28 years old, but lives trapped inside an older man’s body. He thinks he’s still young enough to water ski like a madman and dirt bike with his two grown sons. He’s the best-selling, Christy BOOK of the YEAR, CAROL, INSPY, and RT Book Reviews award-winning author of ten novels and loves to send readers on journeys they’ll remember months after they finish his stories. He’s also a branding expert, co-host of the Novel Marketing podcast, and co-founder with his son, Taylor, of The Rubart Writing Academy. He lives with his amazing wife on a small lake in Washington state. More at
