Rocky Mountain Writer #33

Gwen Florio & Disgraced

The guest is Gwen Florio, author of the mystery series featuring reporter Lola Wicks, who first appeared in the novels Montana and Dakota.

Lola is back in the brand new Disgraced and Florio stops by to talk about the third installment as well as the intersecting worlds of non-fiction and fiction when it comes to journalism.

Florio talks about her writing process, about capturing small town life in Wyoming, about the importance of journalism—in real life and in fiction.
