Satellite Sisters Word Write Festival 2013

presented by Elizabeth the First Wife


The Satellite Sisters WordWrite Festival is back, celebrating new fiction and non-fiction of 2013 with author interviews with great writers who have a story to share! Thanks to the authors and publishers who participated. We appreciate your time. Our first two interviews posted today are with women who are funny, charming and, oh yes, very good writers.


Caroline Leavitt    Is This Tomorrow

 This episode features author Caroline Leavitt. She is the author of ten books, including the NYT bestseller Pictures of You and her latest novel Is This Tomorrow. She teaches writing at UCLA and Stanford Online. And writes the delightful blog, Leavitttown.

Is This Tomorrow is a haunting literary thriller about a child disappearance in a Boston suburbs in the late Fifties and the aftermath of the case on family and friends decades later.  The book is the rare combination of page turner and deeply moving character study.  Carefully constructed pacing combined with an accurate portrayal of life in the ‘burbs in the Fifties. Caroline Leavitt is a engaging interview, charming storyteller and generous teacher whose advice about writing is second to none. For more information on Caroline Leavitt and her work, please visit her website and blog

Tracy Beckerman  Lost in Suburbia 

In this episode, columnist and humorist Tracy Beckerman entertains us with her observations about being a mother, writer and resident of a New Jersey suburb. Tracy’s new “momoir” tackles the same territory as her successful newspaper column and blog by the same name, Lost In Suburbia. Tracy’s book will make you laugh even if you, too, lament losing your cool the instant you purchased your first pair of mom jeans. Smartly observed with a heart, Lost in Suburbia will give new moms hope that they will survive their first Mommy N’ Me class and remind veteran moms of all they’ve endured. A great gift for Mother’s Dad.
