Monica Hadley is a serial entrepreneur based in Fairfield, Iowa, cofounder of 6 businesses, all still in existence. She has been an avid reader since before kindergarten, as her mother can attest, and has been a member of the same writers’ group for over 15 years. She is the co-host and original producer of Writers’ Voices with Monica and Caroline and the founder of writersvoices.com.
Writersvoices.com is the outgrowth of a live radio show broadcast on KRUU 100.1 FM in Fairfield, Iowa (www.kruufm.com) – Writers’ Voices with Monica and Caroline. KRUU is one of the world’s first open-source, grass roots, solar-powered community radio stations. Writers’ Voices has been there from its inception in October 2006, with mother-daughter host team, Caroline Kilbourn and Monica Hadley.
From the beginning it has been gratifying how readily prospective guests agreed to give us an hour of their time. Many of our guests have a Fairfield connection, but writers, agents and publishers from all over the country have appeared on the show. As the library grew of these in-depth interviews about books, the writing process, and getting published, listeners suggested that they were a valuable resource for other writers and readers. The idea of creating www.writersvoices.com was a natural progression.
In addition to our library of interviews, writersvoices.com features blog postings about our guests, articles on many facets of the writing life, book reviews, and writing tips. We are in the process of indexing and transcribing many of our interviews.
