Author Amy Mcculloch Uses Extreme Climbs To Inspire Her Writing

Amy McCulloch's latest novel, "Breathless," was inspired by her own experiences in extreme environments. McCulloch has summited some of the tallest peaks on Earth, including Mount Everest, and she has also spent time at the bottom of the world in Antarctica. These experiences have given her a unique perspective on what it means to push oneself to the limit. "Breathless" is the story of a young woman who finds herself in a race against time to solve a murder mystery on the eighth-highest peak in the world. The novel is a page-turner that will leave readers gasping for breath. Thanks to McCulloch's own adventures, "Breathless" is full of suspense, excitement, and adventure.
