295: Inspirational Indie Author Interview #89: Julie Gray: Unlikely Friendship with Holocaust Survivor Leads to Book, Documentary
My guest this week is Julie Gray, a writer who was fleeing grief after the death of a family member. In fact, she fled from California to Israel, where she found a new chapter in her life story and an unlikely friend in a Holocaust survivor. She decided to take a chance and write his story as kind of an extension of her own, and found not only great success as an indie author, but Netflix is producing a documentary about her. It’s a fascinating journey that only Julie Gray can best tell.
