Natalie Baszile

Natalie Baszile’s ascent from working in her family’s business to publishing her first novel is the classic story of a 20-year “overnight” success, one that ends with a TV deal and a playdate with Oprah. Join Natalie as she steps into the GrottoPod to talk about the ups and downs of her journey, including how she bounced back from “the darkest summer” of her life, how her novel Queen Sugar caught the eye of Harpo Productions and director Ava DuVernay and became a TV series, and why fiction writers can benefit from the teachings of Robert McKee.
