On today's episode I talk to writer and actor Mara Wilson. Mara started off in showbiz as a child actor in such films as Mrs. Doubtfire, Miracle on 34th Street and Matilda. After her mother passed away when she was 12 though, she lost some of her passion for acting, and eventually left that side of the business. While she infrequently acts now, appearing on shows like Broad City or BoJack Horseman, Mara is much more of a writer and storyteller. Her first book, Where Am I Now?, was just published last year by Penguin Books. This is the website for Beginnings, subscribe on iTunes, follow me on Twitter.
