Jenna Fischer: "The Actor's Life: A Survival Guide"
Jul 11, 2019 Season 1 Episode 1
HEC Media

This is the first ever episode of “Talking with Authors” where we’ll be talking to a variety of best selling authors spanning genres — authors like Judy Blume, Brad Meltzer, Janet Napalitano, and so many more.

HEC Media is a production company out of St. Louis, Missouri, and with the help of independent bookstore Left Bank Books and St. Louis County Library, we are able to sit down with these amazing writers and thought leaders to discuss their work, their inspiration, and what makes them special. You can watch all of these video interviews on

Today, our author is Emmy Award Nominee and writer Jenna Fischer. She sat down with us for this discussion in March of 2018 at the Marriot St. Louis Grand Hotel.

We’ll hear how the now famous St. Louisian went from being passionate about one subject area growing up, and on to becoming a star in Hollywood and landing the role of Pam Beesly in the hit TV show “The Office”. She decided to write her book “The Actor’s Life: A Survival Guide” to ease the path for others who might be like her growing up…finding themselves wanting to become a performer when it wasn’t necessarily their original plan.

Jenna Fischer is our first guest on “Talking with Authors” from HEC Media and HEC Books.  Our interviewer is Angie Weidinger.
