PODCAST- Kathleen L. Maher: Award Winning Author. Sister. In that order.

The Abolitionist's DaughterI have openly bragged on this very blog before, about being only 2 degrees separated from Kevin Bacon.  Feel free to go into the archives and read all about it.

But today, my Misfit Friends, we have surpassed the 2 Degrees, and have entered the Next Level of Braggadocious Rights – that being my status of merely ONE DEGREE of SEPARATION from greatness… that greatness being my very special guest on the Isle, my very own sister (sorry Kathy, no denying it now!) – Kathleen L. Maher.

Now, mind you, while I’m all about being supportive of family and whatnot, I am also quite attuned to my inner harsh critic.  Fortunately, in this case, the yin and yang of my duality weaves together in beautiful harmonious fashion, and the long and the short of it is this:  the girl can WRITE.

Me?  I’m a hack.  But I recognize talent when I see it… and you will, too.  After all, she won a Major Award (not to be confused with the Leg Lamp from the Christmas Story) – so don’t take my word for it.

THIS ONE!

Plus… the story behind the story (that is, her journey as an author) is just as compelling as, well, the story.  And you WILL be encouraged.  G’head, have a listen:

  1. WONDERFUL podcast. I’m excited for Kathy and her new “twins”. It’s been a long time coming and hard earned. God Bless you on your continued writing and publications. Very interesting podcast and good history lesson as well. I just visit Elmira someday soon. Sounds like a lot of history there, and I Love US history.
    I subscribed to your Misfits newsletters and am sharing the podcast for an entry in your generous giveaway. Thank you 😊

  2. Thank you for your fun post, Nancy, and for sharing Kathleen’s journey as an author and her story behind her story! I have just recently gotten to know her as an author, following her and chatting with her. She is a real gem! I actually just recently won her book, The Abolitionist’s Daughter, through another giveaway (Woo Hoo!!!), but would love to be entered for a chance to win her story in The Victorian Christmas Brides Collection! I just subscribed to your blog, and shared this post and podcast on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. Links to these posts are below. Thanks so much! ~Alison Boss

  3. I loved your interview on this podcast Nancy! Kathleen’s grasp of history is akin to the “men of Isachar, who understood the times and the seasons”. I am so proud of you both! Historical fiction is my favorite genre and Kathleen’s book, The Abolitionists Daughter is a very compelling read.
    I am a follower of yours already and am sharing this excellent interview!

  6. Wow! I don’t listen to many podcasts but I really enjoyed it. I also thought it addressed very well what is going on in our culture today. It seems some things never change, they just morph into a different issue that has roots in the original problem. I signed up for Misfits and shared the podcast with a friend via e-mail.

    2. Thanks so much, Perrianne. So glad you stopped by, and grateful for your follow! Yes, Kathy is tremendously insightful, and that’s what I love about her writing- it is beautiful, in and of itself, with her ability to paint both epic landscapes and intricate/intimate details, and at the same time, she makes you think deeply. Not many writers can accomplish that!
