KPFA 94.1 FM Radio Interview by Kate Jessica Raphael on her show, “Women’s Magazine”
Kate is the author of the Palestine mystery series, which includes Murder Under the Bridge and Murder Under the Fig Tree (with more in the works).

She interviewed authors Judith L. Newton (Oink), Amy S. Peel (Cut), and me about our novels, writing suspense and mystery, the role of  “messages” in our work, our backgrounds, and our “Bright Heroines in Dark Times” tour of summer, 2017.

KPFA, founded in the 1940s, is the oldest listener-supported, commercial-free radio station in the United States.
Our four books were donated to the first ten people who made pledges of $120 during the broadcast.

The interview was broadcast on July 31, 2017.  A recording is available here.
