Replay Episode: Soman Chainani on the Reward of Not Taking the Easy Path

Hey Pluckies! In our series of re-listening in on some beautiful Plucking Up episodes from the past, today we're replaying my conversation with Soman Chainani. Soman Chainani is an insanely successful fantasy novel series that would become, first, a New York Times bestseller and second, a soon-to-be major motion picture on Netflix! He is behind “The School For Good and Evil,” a book series that has sold more than 2.5 million copies and has been translated into 30 languages across 6 continents.In this episode, we talked about Soman’s two biggest influences, Walt Disney and Madonna! But of course, we go beyond Soman's highlight reel. Let's re-listen together!
