In this episode, Amy welcomes guest Michele W. Miller, an attorney and bestselling author, who courageously shares her journey of overcoming addiction, incarceration, and rebuilding her life.

- Michele is an attorney and author of four published novels.

- She is 34 years sober after battling a cocaine and heroin addiction that led her to jails, institutions, and near-death experiences.

- Michele graduated from NYU Law School and became a lawyer at 22, facing a 15-to-life sentence for drug possession by age 25 under New York's Rockefeller Law. Despite avoiding prison in that case, she was disbarred for nine years due to a felony conviction.

- Currently, she is the General Counsel for The Fortune Society, helping the formerly incarcerated with re-entry services.

- Represented by Writers House, her novels have been published by Blackstone Publishing and Crooked Lane Books.

- Her books have received accolades such as being named "Best of 2019" by Strand Magazine and a semi-finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards.

- Publishers Weekly praises her latest novel, "THE LOWER POWER," as a "superbly written tale of urban survivors fighting to save themselves once more."
