Rea has an amazing story of resiliency. She eventually confronted the guy who assaulted her, punched him and knocked him down, which led to an amateur boxing career. When she decided to write her novel, she finished it in less than a month, and even then knew it was going to be published and optioned to become a film. It was.

If you’ve ever wondered how to get the confidence to accomplish something hard (like confronting someone who hurt you or writing a book), you need to listen to this interview.

We also examine Tyrion Lannister from George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, the series that became the hit show Game of Thrones.
