What's up this week on Realgoodwords
I'll be talking with authors of two very different books this week on Realgoodwords. Lori Armstrong is the author of No Mercy, a new mysery series featuring Mercy Gunderson. Mercy is a former Army sniper who comes home after her dad dies to take over the family ranch in South Dakota. Life on the ranch is almost as dark and bloody as her time in Iraq.
Wendy Tokunaga is the author of Love in Translation. It's the story of American Celeste Duncan as she sets off on a wild goose chase to find some answers in her puzzling past in of all places, Tokyo. The clash of cultures is very fun in this novel. She finds herself not only getting some answers about her own heritage but at the center of a wildly popular Japanese reality show. Check out the video trailer of the novel below.
