Santa Fe fiction writers Judi Hendricks and Jo-Ann Mapson interview each other, asking each other the questions they've always wished interviewers would ask. They will talk about their work, the writing life, and read excerpts from their books. Books will be available for purchase.
Jo-Ann Mapson is the author of a book of stories, Fault Line, many anthologized essays, and nine novels, most recently The Owl and Moon Café and the Bad Girl Creek series. Two of her books have been national bestsellers, and her book Blue Rodeo was made into a TV movie starring Kris Kristofferson. She teaches fiction at the University of Alaska's MFA in Creative Writing program.
Armed with a degree in journalism and a short attention span, Judith Ryan Hendricks worked as a journalist, copywriter, computer instructor, travel agent, waitress and baker before turning to fiction writing. Her first novel, Bread Alone was a national bestseller and a Booksense 76 pick. It was followed by Isabel's Daughter, set in Santa Fe, and The Baker's Apprentice. Her newest book, The Laws of Harmony, was published in February, 2009. Hendricks' fiction has been translated into 11 languages and distributed in more than 15 countries.
