Today, Vicki chats with three authors who weave historical twists with fictional tales to create suspenseful page turners!
First, returning guest Steve Berry is noted for his mastery of blending fiction and history into a cocktail of intrigue and deception. The Malta Exchange, The latest in his best-selling Cotton Malone series, finds the titular character caught in a web of Vatican intrigue that involves the Knights of Malta and lost documents that could change history.
Steve’s novels have been translated into 40 languages with 20,000,000 copies in 51 countries.
Next, Kris Frieswick’s 20 years of writing experience didn’t prepare her for the journey as she embarked on her first novel. The Ghost Manuscript is Indiana Jones with a female lead — we see our heroine on a quest to find King Arthur’s tomb that takes readers from Wales, to Boston and eventually to Cape Cod.
Kris is a journalist, editor, humorist, teacher and author whose work has appeared in national magazines, newspapers and books for more than 20 years.
Finally, Seattle based author Elise Hooper gives readers a peek into the life of photographer Dorothea Lange … the woman who captured the real America … in Learning to See.
Elise has taught high school English and history and enjoys highlighting characters in her books who are real woman that have been often overlooked in history books.
