This week on A Cup of Coffee and a Good Book, Greg interviews Deanna Proach, author of To Be Maria. Seventeen-year-old Anya Preschnikov dreams of one day becoming a famous actor, but she's faced with two problems: her one-parent, dysfunctional family neglects her and has no money to support her, and at school, she's the target of her peers' contempt. Anya believes that in order to secure her stepping stone to stardom, she must dress like the rich girls and be surrounded by a large network of friends. All of this changes, though, when Maria Hernandez comes to Peach Valley Senior High.
Our interview with Deanna Proach promises to be an entertaining and stirring one, and this is a book that you will surely want to read.
If you are interested in picking up her book before the show, it is currently available in a Kindle edition at Amazon. And be sure to visit check out her witty and wise weblog at Goodreads!
Greg Walker hosts A Cup of Coffee and a Good Book every Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 Pacific Time. Join us to meet some great authors and hear about their books and their creative process.
