On the first Saturday of each month my co-host Steven Clark Bradley and I will discuss the back-story of novels – ours and one of our guest authors.

Every novelist has a back-story to tell. Ever wonder what authors are really tying to say in their novels? The Back Story Radio Show gives you an inside look at the making of a novel. A behind the scenes look of the back story the author is conveying.
It could be as simple as what made them write the story. The back-story could also be a particular point or concept that the author wants to get across to the reader.
We’ll explore those back-stories every month on our show.
This week’s show will have as our Back-Story guest Katie Gates author of The Somebody Who. Nominated for a 2009 Literary Award from the Library of Virginia, The Somebody Who is a testament to love and the value of shared history. The Somebody Who, is the story of one woman’s journey from despair to empowerment as she copes with her husband’s dementia.
The Richmond Times Dispatch described it as a story of “empowerment and renewal” and suggested that it should be required reading for those whose lives have been touched by Alzheimers or dementia (June 10, 2009). On Amazon, all reviews have come in at the 5-star level, with one reader describing the book as “written in an effortless style and with beguiling humanity.”
