Call in to speak with the host
Arizona has some of the humorous writers in the world -- probably because we are all crazy to be living in the middle of the stinking desert and the heat is baking our brains.
Or in Oana's case, she may say it could be because we can all hear our cats talk to us. "The Healings" is a dabble in dark humor in which she grew up in Bucharest, Romania.
Oana states, "The character in my stories is a depressed male - the universal human being in search of his own Self and his place in the society and, on a deeper level in the world. In his quest for healing, he is accompanied by his one and only partner, his talking cat."
When I met Oana during an author reading in a few months ago, I found her brand of humor and sarcasm reminiscent of Erma Bombeck, or my favorite satirist, Nora Ephron. She's wickedly humorous and writes about a talking cat, so what more would I want as a reader.
It's good to talk.
