Episode 91: Interview with Adriana Trigiani author of The Good Left Undone



“This book is layered like a napolean…there’s no chuffa in The Good Left Undone!” ~ Adriana Trigiani 

There is just something special about the latest from Adriana Trigiani that sets it apart from her other remarkable books. Author Lisa Scottoline says of The Good Left Undone, “Adriana Trigiani has written the triumph of her career in this historical epic. It’s an opus – a gorgeous opus!” The book is filled with historical fiction of the kind I had never heard of, yet it’s every bit contemporary: our main character, Senora Cabrelli, looks back on her life and relates her remarkable story to her adult granddaughter.  You will not be able to put this one down, I can assure you. As Goodreads says, “Prepare to be enthralled…”

Thank you so much Adriana Trigiani, what a special, special interview. I am so grateful. Grazie Mille!

Episode 81: Interview with Fiona Davis for The Magnolia Palace



“There is a real person behind this beautiful piece of art…” that’s what Fiona Davis says about Audrey Munsen, the sculptor’s model who is the basis for the character of Lillian in the latest book from author Fiona Davis, THE MAGNOLIA PALACE.

Fiona Davis and I go way back to her very first book, THE DOLLHOUSE, and her very first visit to Merrick Library…give a listen to this episode as we talk about the Frick family, Fiona’s love for libraries, what’s next for her and so much more.                                                                                                                                          You can follow Fiona Davis on her website and on social media.

Episode 80! Interview with Jonathan Evison



Jonathan Evison’s latest, Small World, really swings for the fences in this sweeping Great American Novel that intricately weaves family sagas spanning centuries, generations and experience. Small World chronicles 170 years of American nation building – it’s a grand entertainment and I loved every page. Evison also took the time to talk about the libraries of his youth and the impact they had on his life. What a great interview, thank you so much Jonathan!
