KSFR RADIO 101.1 FM SANTA FE NM

Producer and Host: Abigail Adler

Guest: Lisa Wingate

Lisa Wingate is a former journalist, inspirational speaker, and New York Times Bestselling Author. She has published thirty novels. Her work has won or been nominated for many awards, including the Pat Conroy Southern Book Prize, the Oklahoma Book Award, The Carol Award, and the Christy Award.

Wingate's most recent novel, Before We Were Yours, has been on the New York Times Bestseller List for more than one year- and, it is currently number one on the NY Times bestseller list.  The book is Publishers Weekly’s #3 longest running bestseller of 2017.  Before We Were Yours has, to date, sold nearly 2 million copies. It has just come out in paperback.

Wingate's writing career began late: after college, after marriage, after a career as a journalist and technical writer, and then the birth of her oldest son .

Wingate says she was lucky to marry into a big family of Southern tall-tale enthusiasts who never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

Lisa Wingate lives north of Dallas - and joins us by telephone.
