Episode 57: Interview with Jess Montgomery for The Stills



Oh my gosh, Jess Montgomery can come back any old time she wants. We talked about the third book in her Kinship series, The Stills.  Here is the series in order: The Widows, The Hallows, The Stills, but the beauty of these books is that you don’t have to read them in order.

Family, friendship, kinship. That’s what this historical fiction mystery series is all about…well, that and the terrific character of Sheriff Lily Ross. Sheriff Lily’s love for her family and the residents of Kinship makes this series both compelling and comforting. And yes…once again, there’s the edge of your seat stuff we know to expect from Jess Montgomery! We talked about writing the third in the series, prohibition, and more.  Jess is a joy and honestly, don’t miss this episode and don’t miss The Stills.

Episode 17: Interview with Tatjana Soli, author of THE REMOVES.



I had the absolute pleasure of hosting Tatjana Soli last month. We talked about her newest book, The Removes, a riveting historical fiction tale of General Custer, his wife Libby and Anne Cummins, a 15-year-old girl abducted by the Cheyenne. The book takes place just at the end of the Civil War and rides us up and into the Battle of Little Big Horn. Did I say it was riveting? Please check it out.

Tatjana Soli is the bestselling author of not-to-be missed books like “The Lotus Eaters, “The Forgetting Tree” and “The Last Good Paradise”.
Must reads all of them and perfect for your book discussion groups.
Soli’s work has been awarded the UK’s James Tait Black Prize and she’s been a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award. Her books have also been twice listed as a New York Times Notable Book.
