Nurse Charles Cullen killed about 400 patients over 16 years, confessed after being caught, andt then spoke to no-one again. Years later, he spoke to the editor of Wired Magazine Charles Graeber. Why? While known for his work in GQ, The New Yorker, National Geographic and New York Magazine, why did Cullen answer Graeber's letter? Drawn to the easy nature of Cullen at times, even Graeber could forget over the years of interviews that he was near befriending a serial killer while at the same time being the only person to tell the full story.
Despite detailed endnotes, there was not enough room to tell everything the author learned in writng The Good Nurse, which remains on the NY Times Best Seller List. There is much about the story we still do not know.
And despite interviews across the country including 60 Minutes and The Katie Couric Show, there is much about the author audiences do not know. Why did he leave medical school to travel the world and enter war torn areas for investigative journalism? What has his life been like from scientist to author? Who is the man that the serial killer broke years of silence to tell everything?
In the only extended heart to heart with Charles Graeber we will dig deep into the man, his years from medicine to the impact of living in constant danger. What can he teach us as an author of everything from a peer-review journal, to living the life of successful, award wining full-time journalist? He is complex, extraordinarily interesting, multi-layered and remarkably honest. This is an interview you won't want to miss!

My guest this Saturday November 2 is author Kristina Dreisbach. We will be discussing her new children's book, Winston the Duck and His Big Orange Bill.
About the author:
Kristina Wolf Dreisbach is a preschool teacher in Jeffersontown, Kentucky. “Children in my classes loved to hear my stories that I wrote or made up on a whim for them. My dream has been to write a children’s book and now God has made my dream come true! I hope every child who reads this book will know that God makes us all different, and to be confident in Him and who He has made us to be!” Her family once had a duck named Winston.
About the book:
Winston the duck is born on Cady Cove Lake to Mr. and Mrs. Mallard Duck. All the animals come to see the blessed event. But when Winston is born, he has a big orange bill that makes him different. Winston knows God made him different for a reason and is determined to find out why.
One night after the family goes to sleep, Winston heads out on a journey around Cady Cove Lake. He meets Mr. Turtle who laughs at him, but Winston just keeps walking. He meets Mr. Raccoon and together they search for the reason Winston has a big orange bill. The two get into trouble with an owl that wants to eat them for dinner!
