My guest today likes to describe herself as an Author/Anchor/Mom…not in that order. She grew up in front of a microphone and a keyboard, working as an overnight DJ as a teenager in her hometown of Brookville, Pennsylvania…and writing her first (thankfully unpublished) historical novel at sixteen. After a news career with stops in Pittsburgh, Vermont and Connecticut, she’s now a weekend morning anchor at 1010 WINS Radio in New York City. When her son started kindergarten, she decided to return to fiction writing, and after two failed projects, some 200 rejections, and a family health crisis, found an agent for the first Ella Shane book. Her stories have been short-listed for Derringer and Black Orchid Novella Awards and appear in several anthologies. She, her husband, and their son live in Connecticut in a house owned by their cat. Welcome to Authors Over 50, Kathleen Marple Kalb.
