ON TWE RADIO MAR. 16-17: In You’d Better Not Die or I’ll Kill You–A Caregiver’s Guide (Chronicle Books), Jane Heller shares her own experiences as a caregiver and offers advice from experts. She learned firsthand about the subject from taking care of her husband, Michael, who is afflicted with Crohn’s disease and was a “frequent flier,” a patient who lands in the hospital often.
The book includes workout exercises, healthy recipes, and a candid, funny approach to a subject that can be deadly serious.
Jane spent a decade promoting best-selling authors and turned into one herself. Now, with thirteen novels under her belt and nine of which sold to Hollywood, she is in a league of her own.
We are delighted to welcome back Lee Woodruff to TWE Radio. She’s a writer (this is her third book), CBS This Morning Contributor, and motivational speaker. She talked about her upcoming debut novel, Those We Love Most, last year on The Women’s Eye with Stacey Gualandi, and we’re delighted that it’s just been published.
She’ll guest with Stacey in October (date to be announced) on 1480KPHX and discuss recovering from loss, the resiliency it takes to move forward and a host of other topics.
Lee authored Perfectly Imperfect-A Life in Progress and In an Instant, co-written with her husband, ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff , who suffered traumatic brain injuries as a result of being hit by a roadside bomb in Iraq. They both work tirelessly for Remind.org, their foundation to assist those wounded in the service and their families.
Don’t forget to tune in to TWE Radio Oct. 27 and 28!

And she brings that natural world with her wherever she goes. She recently kicked off the book tour for her new novel, Contents May Have Shifted, and I had the pleasure of interviewing her before her talk at Book Passage, in Corte Madera, CA.
“It is so obvious for me to write autobiographically and then to shape it into a story…it’s like breathing or eating.” Pam Houston
Contents is her fifth book coming after two collections of best-selling short stories, Cowboys Are My Weakness and Waltzing the Cat. Once you talk with Pam for a few minutes you soon understand that her job as a writer is to experience the world and come back to write truthfully about her observations. On top of that, Pam is very easy to talk to. We laughed a lot!… [Read more...]
