Interview With Author Amy Lynn


1. What inspired you to write this book? I wanted to be able to offer the psychological and spiritual tools I provide to my clients in private practice and coaching on a broader scale. I have been blessed with the opportunity to help thousands discover hope and healing from anxiety, depression, mood disorders, addiction, low self-esteem, and trauma. I designed this book to creatively touch the hearts of the many people who have been held back and/or effected by life challenge. In a world where 70% of the adult population has been impacted by trauma, I offer this book of transformation and healing to show readers how to create peace, happiness, and lasting joy.    

2. What exactly is it about and who is it written for? Sacred Garden compassionately weaves many facets of spirituality together to create a tapestry for hope and healing. It provides tools that create joy in the lives of readers in practical ways that are easy to integrate. It provides a simple, yet profound roadmap for readers to overcome heartache and be led to victory, peace, and happiness. The first part of the book blends the author’s story and the stories of others who have transformed their lives with inspiring visual meditations and energy awareness exercises that show clear direction toward peace and happiness. The second part of the book is filled with encouraging meditations, mindful prayers, and empowering mantras. Audios of these can be found at This book is written for those seeking to enhance positive connections (mind, body, and spirit) It is also lovingly designed to help the 70 percent that have been impacted by trauma throughout their lifetime. It encourages readers to transform their lives and discover true happiness and peace.     

3. What do you hope readers will get out of reading your book? I hope they find a daily reprieve from the challenges life presents and move into the realms of inner peace and joy. 

4. How did you decide on your book’s title and cover design? The main spiritual concept in the book is a visual symbol of the beauty and peace found in a garden. The cover design is based on a guided imagery meditation in the book that encourages readers to discover their highest self. 

5. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers – other than run!? If you imagine a book, write it. If a title is inspired in the recesses of your mind, you need to write the book that belongs to it. It is within you. Trust in your inspiration.  

6. What trends in the book world do you see -- and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading? I have written for almost 30 years. I began before word programs offered grammar and editing. I first passed my manuscripts back and forth with editors of the publishing companies via Post (overnighting hard copies of manuscript) believe it or not. These were the days when there were not nearly as many books published and it took a lot more effort, knowledge, and willpower to produce books. Now, and especially with the growing popularity of AI, so many books inundate the market. Competition is to the extent that a book’s chance of being “discovered” is one in a million.  I am hopeful that a good share of “authentic” writers remain, those who are unique, creative, and put their inspiration and ideas together in a highly human expression vs. plugging ideas into programs and writing tools that present in a more mechanical fashion.       

7. Were there experiences in your personal life or career that came in handy when writing this book? I actually include tender pieces of my personal life story and experiences in recovering from hardships I faced due to early childhood trauma to help readers have meaningful examples that assist them along their own process of turning struggle to joy. And as I stated earlier, I include several psychological and spiritual tools that I have utilized over several years in my private practice of creating mental health and wellness. These inspirational tools lead readers to experience the hope and healing I am able to provide in my clinical and coaching sessions. 

8. How would you describe your writing style? Which writers or books is your writing similar to? I am a very creative and visual writer. Readers have reflected my words paint vivid pictures, images they can see in feel in their hearts and minds. I am most similar to writers like Marianne Williamson, Mark Nepo, Ekhart Tolle, Kahlil Gibran, and Depok Chopra. 

9. What challenges did you overcome in the writing of this book? I am so busy in my practice it took me longer than usual to write and edit this book. The most challenging part was creating the time and space to turn my inspiration and ideas into a beautifully flowing work that moves readers into the peace and joy I intend to convey. It was also difficult to include tender parts of my own story of past trauma and yet weaving my own personal experience throughout the pages provides depth and a meaningful connection with readers.    

10. If people can buy or read one book this week or month, why should it be yours? It will change your life! It will give you the tools to live in peace, happiness, grace, and transformational love.
