Sophie Schiller was born in Paterson, NJ and grew up in the West Indies amid aging pirates and retired German spies. Among other oddities her family tree contains a Nobel prize-winning physicist and a French pop singer.
She loves stories that carry the reader back in time to exotic and far-flung locations. She was educated at American University, Washington, DC and lives in Brooklyn, New York. She is currently working on a new historical thriller set in the Caribbean.
While Sophie was writing Race to Tibet, she had set the first scene of the novel—an altercation between Gabriel Bonvalot and General Prejevalsky that may or may not be real—in Café Tortoni, a well-known café on the Rue des Italiens in Paris. But until today she had never known about the existence of this painting, even though she had been to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston numerous times, although not prior to March 18, 1990, the day it was stolen.
To me, Cafe Tortoni, with its sophisticated ambiance and suave reputation, known for being the meeting place of politicians, intellectuals, scholars, dandies, and ladies of the demi-monde seemed to be the perfect setting to place two opposing characters, and how much more so now that I can see it through Manet's eyes.
According to Sophie, "All I can say is, Wow! and pray that someday Chez Tortoni is restored to its rightful place in the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum, one of Boston's great cultural treasures. I spent close to 2 years researching the book before I ever put pen to paper. I feel I learned so much about the geography, the history, the culture, and the Great Game that I could teach a course on it! I still hope that one day I can visit Tibet."

On April 4 my guest will be Ken Biberaj. Ken, the Chairman of the Board of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, was born in New York City, a first generation American after his parents emigrated from Albania in 1968. He received his Bachelor’s in political science at American University, his Master’s in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School and a JD from New York Law School.
Since 2005, he has served as an executive at his family’s real estate company. The firm is active in Manhattan and the Bronx and also owns and operates the iconic Russian Tea Room. His work in real estate includes investment sales and retail brokerage. On the brokerage side, Ken has carved out a niche advising restaurants and small businesses on their expansion around the City. At the Russian Tea Room, he oversaw the restoration and reopening of the restaurant in 2006 and continues to handle public relations and business development.
As part of his role with The Russian Tea Room, Ken has become an advocate for the hospitality industry. He sits on the Restaurant Committee for NYC & Company and also on the Local Leadership Council of Business Forward. This activism in support of small businesses and the hospitality sector motivated Ken to run for City Council on the Upper West Side in 2013.
His campaign focused on bringing new energy and a fresh perspective to the Council, with a particular commitment to advocate for the small and medium size businesses that make our City so unique. His presence on the political scene was quickly recognized. He was recognized by City & State Magazine as a “40 under 40” upcoming political leader. Moreover, he received endorsements from the Small Business Coalition, the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, Governor David Paterson, the League of Conservation Voters and the League of Independent Theaters.
Howard Hewett (born October 1, 1955, Akron, Ohio, United States) is an American R&B and gospel singer, and former lead vocalist of the R&B group Shalamar.
Raised in Akron, Ohio, Hewett moved to Los Angeles in 1976, where he met John and Alonzo Daniels, owners of an historical club in the LA Crenshaw district, called Maverick's Flat. It was at Maverick's that Hewett first met Jeffrey Daniel and Jody Watley (eventually Shalamar). Hewett and the Daniels brothers formed a show group called "Beverly Hills" and through Daniels bookings toured throughout Europe, the UK, Scandinavia and Asia for all of 1978 till the middle of 1979.
After returning from overseas, Hewett started recording for Jeffrey Bowen, a Motown producer (The Temptations, Commodores, Bonnie Pointer) who was working on a solo project on guitarist Eddie Hazel (Parliament-Funkadelic). Hewett never completed the project because towards the end of 1979, he got a call from Jeffrey Daniel, who was on the road with Shalamar in the middle of a promotional tour. They had suddenly found themselves in need of a lead singer and Daniel made Hewett an offer that he accepted. Within three days Hewett flew to New Jersey, where he met up with Watley and Daniel, rehearsed the lip synch and choreography to the current Shalamar single "Take That To The Bank", and found himself in front of a TV camera on a local dance show in Paterson, New Jersey. They completed the promotional tour and returned to Los Angeles and immediately started recording the Big Fun LP with their producer, Leon Sylvers. The trio went on to record songs such as "Second Time Around", "Make That Move", "A Night to Remember", "Dancing in the Sheets" and the ballad "This Is for the Lover in You". Hewett was the group's lead singer from 1979 until 1985.
