On this episode, we chat with author Amanda Jayatissa about her debut novel My Sweet Girl, a thriller about a woman trying to unravel the mystery behind her roommate's death (and the subsequent disappearance of his body), which leads face to face toa reckoning decades in the making that stems back to her own adoption from Sri Lanka. We chat with Amanda about her journey as a writer, including her adventures in self-publishing, as well as the spooky inspirations behind her story.
