One of Santa Fe’s most loved and respected authors, Elaine Pinkerton joins me today with news of her eagerly awaited forthcoming novel Hand of Ganesh to be published in February by Pocol Press. Threading themes of a search for their birth parents amidst ancient mysteries, spiritual trial and the gorgeous landscape of India two women meet adventure and misadventure in a way only Elaine Pinkerton can tell. Weaving elements of her own life story, we discuss her decades of writing, with Santa Fe on Foot now in its 30th year of publication and her own parents’ World War II love letters From Calcutta with Love also about to be re-released.

Part memoir, part real-life mystery page-turner Love’s Legacy: Viscount Chateaubriand and The Irish Girl is as absorbing and confounding as our very own ancestry quest. Professor Emeritus Daniel Fallon turns his distinguished scholarly mind to his family’s stories handed down with wit and flourish over many generations. Dan, born in Columbia, South America knows that his heritage is Spanish and Irish, but is he also descended from the French romantic writer and legendary lover Chateaubriand? His research for Love’s Legacy began in the early 1990’s two decades before ancestral DNA tests became widely available making his quest one of travel and impeccable research to find century old records and documents. Most mysteriously, why did Chateaubriand, a man who kept legions of letters, never mention his apparent depth of friendship with Mary, the Irish girl at the heart of this mystery? www.loveslegacybook.com

Performance poet, creativity coach, and screenwriter Cari Griffo reads from her newest poetry collection Sheltered and Before The Contagious, written during the heart of 2020’s pandemic lockdown. Perceptive and very relatable, Cari sought inspiration and encouragement from the minutest changes in nature that we normally miss when rushing about our normal lives. As she and her family sheltered inwardly she took the opportunity to craft and hone her innate creativity discovering ways to become “unstuck” even as doors and outdoors were still closed. Cari’s books Ripening and Sheltered can be ordered from your local bookstore. carigriffo.com
