September all ready. Fall is around the corner. My guests for September are Thesa Tuohy and Wanda Snow Porter.
Theasa Tuohy is a long-time journalist who has happily turned her life experiences and reporting skills to fiction featuring female reporters. She was born in Oklahoma City, the daughter and namesake of a pioneer female pilot who flew an old World War I "Jenny" with an OX-5 engine. Theasa worked for five daily newspapers and the Associated Press. Her "first woman" stints included assistant city editor at The Detroit News and the copy desk at The (Newark) Star Ledger.
Wanda Snow Porter grew up in a small town on the California coast riding horseback on land once part of an old Mexican rancho. An avid horsewoman, she has owned and trained horses all her life, learned the vaquero way of riding, and earned a Bronze Medal Riders Award from the United States Dressage Federation. She enjoys bird watching, photography, and being a docent at Rancho Nipomo's historic Dana Adobe.
