Kate Sullivan interviews author and former "Wall Street Journal" copy editor Steve McKee. His newest book, “My Father’s Heart,” is his memoir that is partially based on a pair of articles that McKee wrote for the "Wall Street Journal" where he worked for more than twelve years. With guest appearances on the TODAY Show with host Matt Lauer and NPR's Scott Simon of Morning Edition, Steve McKee is an engaging author who discusses the tragic death of his father. A death he witnessed at the age of 16. An excerpt from this memoir includes a philosophy that in recent years has dimmed, but may need to be revived. "Born on January 21, 1919, he had grown up through the Depression, been a young man in World War II, and had been a married man with a family in the postwar boom. He'd worshiped in the church of the American Dream, a true believer in the up-by-your bootstraps gospel." -------------------------------------- Visit www.wordsmitten.com and join avid readers, writers, and career professionals who have an interest in the next great story.
