Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes writer CLAIRE FULLERTON to the studio to discuss her new book MOURNING DOVE. About Claire: "I’ve always known I'm a story teller. Having been born in Wayzata, Minnesota and transplanted at the age of ten to Memphis, Tennessee I learned early that the art of observation can be an acclimating life saver. My mother told me that as a child, I would sit and watch people. I was thirty years old the first time she said this, then she added,“You still do.” If what is known as “the writer’s eye” is the ability to see the world from the outside in, then I am happily guilty. Music radio led me to the music business.Three weeks after my return from vacation I reviewed the journal I kept, while living in Ireland, and knew I had a good story. I started the draft of what became my second published novel, but years intervened between its beginning and publication. During those years, I wrote a creative, weekly column for The Malibu Surfside News, and submitted to writing contests and magazines as I focused on developing my craft. I wrote a paranormal mystery about a woman who suspects she has lived before, and titled it A Portal in Time. Vinspire Publishing published the book, so I decided to show them the manuscript of my Irish novel. Vinspire Publishing published it under the title Dancing to an Irish Reel the following year. My third novel is titled Mourning Dove. It's a sins-of-the-father, Southern Family Saga, set in 1970's and 1980's Memphis. It was published by Firefly Southern Fiction in June of 2018."
