A Batch of Word Soup
An Interview with Catherine Landis
by Pam Kingsbury

Catherine Landis, like her novels Some Days There’s Pie and Harvest, is articulate, thoughtful, smart, sensible, and sensitive. Dedicated to her craft, Landis creates characters reminiscent of long last family members and friends. If, as Landis says, writing is "like making soup," reading her writing is like eating a good soup in that the reader feels nourished and satisfied afterwards.  

Exploring Women's Roles
An Interview with Patricia Foster
by Pam Kingsbury

Patricia Foster's works are about women's lives -- what it means to be identified by gender, race, place, and socio-economic class. Using the everyday to define her life -- her roles as daughter, sister, wife, college professor, writer -- she writes about the changes she's seen during her lifetime.
