Alexia Gordon throws down the challenge to Catroina McPherson to enter a no hold barred mana-a-mana IN CONVERSATION interview on Authors on the Air.  Join host Pam Stack when she moderates this word battle till the end.  Who will win Round 2?

Challenger #1 & host Alexia Gordon:    A writer since childhood, I continued writing through college but put literary endeavors on hold to finish medical school and Family Medicine residency training. My medical career established, I returned to writing fiction.  I won a Lefty Award, was nominated for an Agatha Award, and was chosen one of Suspense Magazine‘s best debuts of 2016.  Raised in the southeast and schooled in the northeast, I migrated to the southwest after a three-year stint in Alaska reminded me how much I needed sunlight and warm weather. After a time in the desert, I missed deciduous trees so I headed northeast to the Chicago area. I completed Southern Methodist University’s Writer’s Path program in Dallas, Texas. If pushed, I will admit Texas brisket is as good as Carolina pulled pork. I enjoy classical music, fine whiskey, art, travel, embroidery, and a good ghost story.

Challenger #2 & guest Catriona McPherson:   I was born in Edinburgh and lived therebefore moving to California in 2010. A born swot, I finally left school at age thirty with a PhD in linguistics from Edinburgh University. Proper jobs have included banking (hopeless), library work in local studies and fine art (marvellous), and a short burst of academia (miserable). I'm now a full-time writer and hope never to have a proper job again!
