We all know that a Mary Alice Monroe novel is a ‘must have’ for a trip to the beach and with many beaches still closed (due to the Corona virus restrictions) her new novel, On Ocean Boulevard, is the perfect antidote. Mary Alice joins Lynda to talk about the return to her beloved Beach House series – a family story that her readers have followed for nearly 2 decades.
In this episode, Mary Alice shares how launching and promoting On Ocean Boulevard has been different in the wake of a pandemic and the way in which the novel’s storyline has proved to be prescient. She talks about seeing this forced isolation as a gift and shares a personal story from her past that changed her life. She opens up about the tricky balancing act of raising a family while staying true to her craft and has wonderful advice about it!
Mary Alice is also the author of 2 children’s books; A Turtle Summer and A Butterfly Called Hope. She talks about why she wrote these and the dynamics of working with an illustrator.
This episode is packed with nuggets of inspiration, revelation and affirmation for every writer.
