Amy Lyle: Finding 'The Funny' In Failures

Yes, And . . . Podcast with Jennifer Whitacre

Release Date: 03/20/2019

Have you ever had a bad day? Maybe you had a "wardrobe malfunction" or a fall in public? Most people avoid talking about their most cringe-worthy moments but not, Amy Lyle. 
Amy and I discuss the huge life change of trying to blend a family. This change ultimately led her to quit her corporate day job to become a full-time screenwriter. After an immense amount of rejection- she was told to "write a book" to "get on the map".
She wrote two, both became best seller's in Humor & Entertainment on Amazon- beating out Tina Fey, David Sedaris and even Trevor Noah.
Amy shares stories from her first book, The Amy Binegar-Kimmes-Lyle Book of Failures: A funny memoir of missteps, inadequacies, and faux pas. Amy relays her own misfortunes as only she could, with humor and raw honesty.
She discusses how being transparent and imperfect is just what we need in a world teeming with social media perfection. This realization led to her next book, We're All A Mess, It's OK. Over one hundred contributors share their failures, setbacks and most embarrassing moments for this compilation of hilarity with the hopes that their stories would give the embarrassed and struggling souls some comic and inspirational relief.  
Through the success of her books, Amy was able to land a film deal! It shoots fall 2019, in Atlanta and NYC!
