Mariel Hemingway is best known as an actress, starring in the award-winning Manhattan with Woody Allen and accumulating over 60 TV and film credits throughout her illustrious career which started when she was only 14-years-old. So it makes perfect sense that Mariel, now an accomplished entertainer herself, would be open to helping another young entertainer make her mark — this time in the publishing world.
Enter Isabell Hayden, a 7-year-old author. With the help of Isabell’s mother and a publishing company called MindStir Media, Isabell was able to get an endorsement from Mariel Hemingway for her new children’s book. The endorsement came in the form of a video that was posted to YouTube. The video of Mariel Hemingway praising the young author’s book, The Adventures of Amber: Walk in the Woods, attracted thousands of views and helped the book become a #1 Amazon Best Seller in June 2021.
Mariel Hemingway is the granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway and has been using her famous name and celebrity influence to help elevate new and unknown indie authors. Mariel raved about Isabell’s book, stating, “The Adventures of Amber will be a great addition to your child’s home library, and it will certainly be enjoyed by everyone else at home as well.”
