Join Joy Radio and listen to an interview with Lori Nelson Spielman, debut novelist of THE LIFE LIST to be published by Ballantine/Random House, summer 2013.
Lori will begin the show by reading an excerpt from her book.
Here's how Deadline Hollywood describes the book: THE LIFE LIST tells the story of a young woman who embarks on "a year-long journey of self-discovery after her mother passes away and leaves her an inheritance with one big stipulation--in order to receive it she must complete the items on the 'life list" of glas she made for herself when she was 14. Although apprehensive at the beginning, she takes on this challenge in a "bewildering and comedic journey through her adolescent dreams" which leave her "surprised to find the life, and the self, she'd lost along the way."
Lori Nelson Spielman lives in East Lansing, Michigan, with her husband and a vry spoiled K.C. (Kitty Cat). A former speech pathologist and guidance counselor, she currently works as a homebound teacher for inner-city students. Lori enjoys running, traveling, and reading, though writing is her passion. She spends her winters cursing the god-awful Michigan winters, and her summers sailing the glorious shores of Lake Michigan.
