  • Historical Fiction Author Patricia Kullberg Joins Kori on the Back Porch

    in Writing

    A family physician, Patricia Kullberg, MD, MPH, devoted her career to serving persons living with physical, mental and addiction disorders at a clinic for the homeless. She has written many award-winning articles about health and medicine, but Girl in the River is her first novel. Kullberg and her husband live in Portland, Oregon, where she facilitates writing workshops for marginalized women and tends a large garden.

    Book blurb:

    On the eve of World War II, Portland, Oregon, battles corruption as the city falls into the hands of gangsters. Newly orphaned, Mae Rose wanders the rain-stained streets alone, on the lam from a knife-wielding pimp and mustering her own worst impulses to survive. As Mae rises to power in Portland’s gritty sex industry, she’s pursued by a district attorney who seeks to snare her for more personal reasons.  In the city’s smoky nightspots, the glamorous Dr. Ruth Barnett turns heads, but by day she operates a wildly successful abortion service. At war’s end, both Mae and Ruth are caught in the crosshairs of Portland’s anti-vice crusade. The women’s survival, as well as any chance at lasting love, depends on their allegiance to each other and their abilities to outsmart the cops and politicians who no longer protect them.

    The Author's Talk Show with Jeff Andrews (historical fiction novelist)

    in Books

    Jeff Andrews is a published author of two works of historical fiction.

    His first novel is The Freedom Star.

    A 99,000-word historical novel immerses readers in the lives, dreams, and sufferings of two families, one slave and one master, bound together by the tobacco fields of South Boston, Virginia.

    Isaac yearns for the freedom that Henry McConnell, his friend and owner’s son, takes for granted. After false promises, failed escapes, imprisonment, and the sting of his master’s whip, Isaac’s only hope of fleeing slavery and reuniting with the woman he loves lies in accompanying Henry and the Confederates on their march north. When Yankees wound Henry and take him prisoner, Isaac finds himself behind the Union lines, free, but with a choice: continue north toward his dream or return to slavery to save his friend.

    His second novel is The Gandy Dancer.

    His career is on the rocks. His ex-wife is demanding more money. A woman he can’t even remember accuses him of fathering her child. Newspaper reporter Mitch Corsini shrugs and takes another drink. However, when his estranged teenaged daughter mysteriously disappears, his life finally has a purpose: find the child he's neglected for too long and rekindle the love they once shared.   

    Mitch’s quest takes him to the Virginia mountains and his ancestral home. There, he finds himself locked in a life or death struggle to save his daughter as seventy-year-old family secrets and the fate of a long-forgotten railroad worker combine to shatter the very foundations of his world.

    The Gandy Dancer weaves parallel story lines, one modern, one set in the 1930s. Readers familiar with The Freedom Star might appreciate the appearance of Isaac’s descendants in this fast-paced 80,000-word novel.

    Historical mystery writer Kay Kendall is LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Kay Kendall is a long-time fan of historical novels and now writes atmospheric mysteries that capture the spirit and turbulence of the sixties. A reformed PR executive who won international awards for her projects, Kay lives in Texas with her Canadian husband, three house rabbits, and spaniel Wills. Terribly allergic to her bunnies, she loves them anyway! Her book titles show she's a Bob Dylan buff too. RAINY DAY WOMEN published on July 7--the second in her Austin Starr Mystery series.  She says, "In my mystery series featuring Austin Starr, amateur sleuth, I explore what life was like for a typical young woman--not a headline maker, not a Hanoi Jane or Angela Davis, but a moderate who nonetheless got swept up by history's tides during the turbulent sixties. All that turmoil lends itself to drama, intrigue, and murder."  For more visit http://kaykendallauthor.com.
