About Troy Lambert

My Story

I have wanted to be a writer since I was very young. At age six, I penned the yet unpublished George and the Giant Castle. But alas, as I got older, most people told me I would never make money as a writer. And I believed them. 

It took me many years, an extensive collection of hairnets and name tags, and even a few careers along the way to discover that other than writing, I was pretty much unemployable. So I decided to figure out how to make it work. 

That’s the inspiration for Writing as a Business: Production, Distribution, and Marketing. I guarantee there are writers out there who are not as good as you are at craft, but are making a living because they know the business better. 

If you, like me, find yourself otherwise not much use in the workplace, join me. Don’t just read the book though. Contact me to speak at your writer’s group or event, or even to hold a workshop. I want to see other writers succeed without all the pain I went through.

Note to Self

This book is about offloading emotional baggage—something that’s especially important when we realize that we don’t just pack for one; we pack for seven. Each of the seven selves—self-preservation, self-gratification, self-definition, self-acceptance, self-expression, self-reflection, and self-knowledge—has characteristics, wellness types, and shadows. Each plays a vital role in harmony, overall health, and well-being.

Chock full of real-life emotional examples, as well as “keys” at the end of each chapter offering actionable tips, techniques, and exercises designed to help you unlock baggage, examine it, and offload it permanently, Note to Self will help you discover a lighter, joy-filled you!

Stray Ally

He rescued a dog in the wilderness. In the end, the dog will rescue him in ways he never expected. 

The One Thing

In the number one Wall Street Journal bestseller, Gary Keller has identified that behind every successful person is their ONE Thing. No matter how success is measured, personal or professional, only the ability to dismiss distractions and concentrate on your ONE Thing stands between you and your goals. The ONE Thing is about getting extraordinary results in every situation.

“Once again Troy Lambert nails it with Harvested, yet another installment in his bestselling, Max Boucher PI series. How can you not love a pulse-pounding mystery about missing dogs and a PI who is convinced his missing wife is still out there waiting to be found? Lambert writes with the authority of a pro. Sharp, nail-biting prose that will keep you savoring each and every page. A great beach read from a great veteran writer.”
