She has written two books, effectively becoming her mother’s biographer. The first was a family memoir, “Eppie: The Story of Ann Landers.” Published in 1982, and her recent book (published 2003) “A Life in Letters; Ann Landers’ Letters to her Only Child.” Howard has three adult children and lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts with her husband, a physician and surgeon. Margo Howard is the daughter of Ann Landers, one of America's most beloved advice columnists, who passed away in 2002. ANN LANDERS IN HER OWN WORDS is a collection of wise, witty and heartfelt letters that Landers wrote to her only child.

In this interview Howard reveals why she decided to write the book, what she learned from her mother about writing columns, and her most memorable Ann Landers column.
