Midlife Pivot Profile: Amy Newmark, Chicken Soup for the Soul Editor-in-Chief and Publisher
Amy Newmark’s 50th birthday included a newly empty nest and the purchase of Chicken Soup For The Soul. She didn’t just buy a book, she bought the company.
Now 63, Amy speaks with Mary Rogers about her own midlife transitions while discussing the latest CSFTS book, Age Is Just A Number, 101 Tales of Humor and Wisdom for Life After 60.
Amy Newmark is the bestselling author, editor-in-chief, and publisher of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series. Since 2008, she has published more than 160 new books, most of them national bestsellers in the U.S. and Canada, more than doubling the number of Chicken Soup for the Soul titles in print today
Amy is credited with revitalizing the Chicken Soup for the Soul brand, which has been a publishing industry phenomenon since the first book came out in 1993. By compiling inspirational and aspirational true stories curated from ordinary people who have had extraordinary experiences, Amy has kept the twenty-seven-year-old Chicken Soup for the Soul brand fresh and relevant.
When Amy and her husband Bill, the CEO of Chicken Soup for the Soul, are not working, they are visiting their four grown children and their two grandchildren.
