Theasa Tuohy - novelist, journalist and playwright, has worked for five daily newspapers and the Associated Press. She is co-book author of Scandalous: The Musical, an award winning show about the life of DH Lawrence, and has written a memoir about renovating her home in France. She has this to say about the writing of The Five O'Clock Follies: My career in journalism spans quite a long period of time. It is hard to realize now how difficult it was for women only a few years ago. 

As a young woman I was the first female assistant city editor in the 100-year history of the Detroit News, one of the largest afternoon dailies in the country at the time. By the time I left the Associated Press, I would look around the headquarters newsroom in New York and marvel at the number of women. The Five O'Clock Follies is a fictionalized account of one woman's early struggles as a journalist.

She is the daughter and namesake of a pioneering pilot who flew an old World War I "Jenny" with an OX-5 engine, and the inspiration to her latest book, 'Flying Jenny', which tells the story of two women - a tabloid reporter and stunt pilot in the 1920s redefining gender roles and female empowerment.

A graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, she lives in Manhattan.


 People are doing all sorts of screwy things in 1929. It is a time of hope, boundless optimism, and prosperity. “Blue Skies” is the song on everyone’s lips. The tabloids are full of flagpole sitters, flappers, and marathon dancers. Ever since Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic solo, the entire world has gone nuts over flying. But everyone agrees that the stunt pilots take the cake.
Jenny Flynn defies the odds and conventions in her pursuit of the sky. She attracts the attention of Laura Bailey, a brash reporter crashing through her own glass ceiling at a New York City newspaper. Laura chases the pilot’s story—and the truth about her own mysterious father—on a barnstorming escapade from Manhattan to the Midwest.
Flying Jenny is a vivid portrait of an earlier time when airplanes drew swarming crowds entranced by the pioneers—male and female—of flight.

One nation, without God...
Colton Pierce apprehends Abberants--those who display symptoms of faith--and quarantines them on a remote island to ensure public safety. Years prior, the government released a genetically-engineered super flu that destroyed the genes believed to be the biological source of spiritual experience in an effort to rid the world of terrorism. As an extractor with the Center for Theological Control, Colton is dedicated to the cause.
But Colton's steadfast commitment is challenged when he learns his own son has been targeted for extraction. An underground militia, the Remnant, agrees to help Colton save his son in exchange for his assistance with their plan to free the Aberrants on the island.
Colton is faced with the most important decision of his life. Remain faithful to the CTC? Or give up everything to save his son?

Show Recording 

What is remembered; what is missed; what will never be again . . . all these are addressed with the tenderness of a wise observer whose heart is large enough, kind enough, to embrace them all without judgment. . . . intense and finely crafted  . . . . her stories reach into the hidden places of the heart and break them open to healing light, offering a touch of grace and hope of reconciliation.”—Foreword Reviews, starred review 

“The stories center on the complexity of family relationships with such empathy and humanity that novelist Steve Yarbrough called the book “nothing short of magnificent.”… Summie grounds readers in reality just as they become lost in her beautiful prose…. To Lay to Rest Our Ghosts does not shy from life’s hardest moments, but its sorrow is not gratuitous. Summie is a writer who approaches life as a whole, both good and bad, rooted in history and place, and her elegant prose shines in this collection.”—Chapter 16.org (also appeared in The Knoxville News-Sentinel)
“…nothing short of magnificent.”Steve Yarbrough

“Her compelling writing reminds us of the power of a well-delivered narrative….Summie’s stories emphasize [our] shared humanity, and there is something accessible, recognizable and timely for everyone.”—The Vail Daily

A Book and a Chat with Barbara Ridley


Link to broadcast of Barbara Ridley

Barbara Ridley is the author of When It’s Over, a literary novel set in Europe in World War II, published by She Writes Press in September 2017.
Originally from London, U.K., she has lived in California for over 35 years. She loves the San Francisco Bay Area which is now her home, and likes to spend as much time as she can in the great outdoors.
She was born in London and grew up in a tiny village in Sussex. She attended the University of Sussex and then the North London School of Nursing. She worked for 40 years as a nurse and then a nurse practitioner, specializing in the care of adults with physical disabilities. She has now retired from her day job and is focusing on her writing. She lives in the East Bay with her partner and their West Highland terrier MacDuff.


The author’s mother in 1940
When It’s Over is a literary novel set in England during World War II. Lena is a young Czech Jewish woman who manages to reach England and join a group of refugees staying in a small village in Sussex, where they are sponsored by an eccentric upper-class, left-wing English family. As the war progresses, Lena is torn between her attraction to Milton, the landlady’s son, and her loyalty to fellow refugee Otto. She tries to keep hope alive in the face of frightening news reports on the fate of Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe, while Milton is caught up in the political movement that leads to the defeat of Churchill’s Tory Party in 1945, ushering in Britain’s first viable Labour Government.
When It’s Over deals with universal themes of optimism versus pessimism, hope and denial, and the assimilation of immigrants during a time of social upheaval. Although it is a work of fiction, it is based on Barbara’s late mother’s experience as a refugee in the 1940’s.
Barbara was inspired to write the novel after her mother’s death in 2002. There was so much in her story that was too good to lose, but so many details Barbara realized she didn’t know. So as a lover of fiction, she decided to write a novel and make up stuff to fill in the gaps.
But she also did a ton of research. Among other resources, she was able to read her father’s contemporary letters to one of his close friends. The novel offers fascinating insights into some little-known aspects of life during the war, and the history of the progressive political movements in the 30s and 40s. The issues they struggled with then still have resonance today.

A Book and a Chat with Abbie Johnson Taylor

Recording Link Abbie Johnson Taylor

I was born in New York City on June 1, 1961. After about a year, my family moved to Boulder, Colorado. When I was about four years old, we moved to Tucson, Arizona, where we lived for about eight years. I attended the state school for the deaf and blind for about five and a half years before being mainstreamed into a public school. In 1973, we moved to Sheridan, Wyoming, and I continued to attend public schools.

After graduating from Sheridan High School in 1980, I went to Sheridan College for two years and received an AA degree in music. I then transferred to Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana, where I received a BA in music two and a half years later. After that, I studied music therapy at Montana State University in Billings for two years, but I received no degree. I then completed a six-month internship at a nursing home in Fargo, North Dakota and returned to Sheridan in 1988.

About six months later, I started working as an activities assistant at a nursing home. I worked there for fifteen years. During that time, I also volunteered at other facilities that served senior citizens in the Sheridan area. I facilitated a support group for the visually impaired, taught Braille, and served on the advisory board to a trust fund that allowed visually impaired people and the agencies that served them to purchase adaptive equipment and services. I also joined the YMCA and a women's singing group. In 2005 when I married my husband Bill, I quit my job and other volunteer obligations so I could write full time.

My work has appeared in various publications including The Weekly Avocet and Magnets and Ladders. A romance novel, We Shall Overcome, was published in July of 2007 by iUniverse. A poetry collection, How to Build a Better Mousetrap: Recollections and Reflections of a Family Caregiver, was published in December of 2011, also by iUniverse. In August of 2014, my third book, That’s Life: New and Selected Poems was published by Finishing Line Press. A memoir, My Ideal Partner: How I Met, Married, and Cared for the Man I Loved Despite Debilitating Odds was published by DLD Books in August of 2016.

Bill and I made our home here in Sheridan. After we were married, Bill suffered two strokes: one in January of 2006 and one in 2007, leaving him unable to use his left arm and leg, and I cared for him at home for six years. In September of 2013, I was forced to move him to a nursing home because he was losing strength and getting harder to lift. A month later, he passed away.

I would like to invite you to visit my blog which I update at least once a week. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy reading my work.
