THREE EASTERN: TWO CENTRAL: ONE MOUNTAIN: 12 PACIFIC
Red River Writers and Blog Talk Radio is honored to welcome bestselling NYTimes author RaeAnne Thayne. RaeAnne Thayne will do anything to tell a story. In 15 years as a newspaper reporter and editor, she rode along with a motorcycle gang, took a trip in a hot air balloon and even gave a hunky country music star her home phone number (it was for an interview -- honest!).When she wasn't working as a journalist, though, RaeAnne worked on her real love -- writing romance novels. She dreamed of publishing a book long before she ever thought it was possible. In fact, college friends used to spend hours when they should have been studying, trying to help her come up with a good pseudonym (none of which she actually ended up using, since she writes under her own name!).After graduating from college, she took a job as a reporter at a daily newspaper, then moved to news editor. It wasn't until she was home on maternity leave after the birth of her first child in 1990 that RaeAnne seriously tried her hand at fiction writing. She sold her first book in 1995 and quit her editor job two years later to write full-time.
I would also like to welcome author Patricia Briggs. Patricia is a NYTImes best selling author and her book that we are spotlighting today is Fair Game. One author that has reaped the benefits of this growing audience is #1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs. In her novels, Briggs re-imagines modern-day cities as places where supernatural beings—like werewolves, vampires, and witches—live and prosper! Penguin Books is sending Patricia Briggs on a 10-city book tour to support the release of FAIR GAME .
