KSFR RADIO 101.1 FM SANTA FE NM

Producer and Host: Abigail Adler

Guest: Elizabeth J Church

Elizabeth Church has just come out with her second novel-- All the Beautiful Girls, published by Ballantine Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House.

Elizabeth Church practiced as an attorney in NM for more than thirty years before she walked away from the law for good to pursue a life-long promise to herself to make a career writing full time.

Church's legal career involved extensive writing for legal publications and scientific journals… keeping her writing arm in practice.

Elizabeth Church's first novel, published last year, The Atomic Weight of Love displays Church's intimate knowledge of the NM landscape and the lives of educated women who sacrificed their careers so that their husbands could pursue unique opportunities in scientific research at the Los Alamos Labs.

Her new book , All the Beautiful Girls, takes us behind the scene in the city where what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. It's a town where talented women find glamorous careers on the stage. Careers, but maybe not fulfillment.
