AM Northwest

Here's a lovely way to start the day . . . being interviewed by Helen Raptis for KATU-TV's AM Northwest morning show.


And so nice to know the book club loved reading The Secrets of Mary Bowser.

Putting the History into Historical Fiction

Sorry to be so quiet for so long. I was off in England for the Historical Novel Society conference, where I enjoyed many smart conversations about how history is evolving as a field and how historical fiction fits in. I'll be sharing thoughts from the conference over the next few weeks, but meanwhile, check out "The Paradox of Pluck: How Did Historical Fiction Become the New Feminist History?" in The Los Angeles Review of Books.

October (On-Air) Surprise

Good morning, America.

Or at least a regional slice thereof.

Look what AM Northwest viewers will be talking about on-air on October 9.

Lewis and Clark Expedition

Many visitors to the Pacific Northwest enjoy a visit to Portland's fine independent bookstores . . .
Lewis and Clark and Mary Bowser

. . . but Lewis and Clark were probably not among them.

Nevertheless, I was delighted to be part of the Visiting Writers Series at Lewis and Clark College. Although I've been reading excerpts from The Secrets of Mary Bowser and discussing the history behind the novel at bookstores, museums, and libraries for several months, this was my first college campus talk about the book. It was a blast to get to talk to the aspiring writers among the Lewis and Clark students, and share some of the behind-the-scenes insights on being a novelist.

There's lots of great video footage that I'll try to post in the next few days. I wanted to start with this question, because it's the first time I was asked it at any reading.

NPR’s HearSay With Cathy Lewis

I love NPR. But for some reason, every time a Virginia radio station does an interview, I sound like I've got a cold in by dose, if you know what I'm saying.

Still, it was great to be a guest on HearSay on WHRV in Richmond. Cathy Lewis was a huge fan of the book and a complete pleasure to speak with. Listen up here.
