AkaRadioRed welcomes chick-lit novelist Olivia Spring and Extreme Decision-Making author Brad Borkan.

Olivia Spring is the author of women’s contemporary fiction and romantic comedy novel The Middle-Aged Virgin. This debut novel, released on Amazon in the UK, USA and 11 other countries, deals with challenges faced by women today: becoming newly single after a long-term relationship, dating in your 30s and 40s when your friends have settled down; how society views women 30+ who don’t have children. Central to the novel is being a MARGIN, short for Middle-Aged Virgin, someone in her thirties or older who hasn't been intimate for a long time. www.oliviaspring.com

Endorsed by the world's greatest living explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the book focuses on the real life-and-death decisions made by early Antarctic explorers like Shackleton, Scott, Amundsen and Mawson. The audiobook was a finalist in the prestigious Voice Arts Awards "Best Audiobook - History category".
