Writing a book is hard enough work, and collaborating on a novel and finding success is almost unheard of. But the mother and son writing team operating under the pseudonym of Charles Todd have created a series with resounding success. The Gatekeeper is the latest in their New York Times bestselling Inspector Rutledge series.
Next, National Book Award nominated writer David Plante joins us from Italy to discuss his latest novel, American Stranger, an insightful story about the search for identity, and how our real lives are far more complex than our labels.
Finally, award-winning author Susan Meissner set her latest novel, As Bright As Heaven, during the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic. We’ll discuss how she found inspiration from this tragic moment in our history that claimed over half a million lives in a year’s time.
Susan is an author, speaker and writing workshop leader with a background in community journalism. She has had her works named as both a Goodreads finalist for Best Historical Fiction and Booklist’s Top Ten Women’s Fiction titles.
