Award winning NPR reporter, Carole Zimmer, sat down to interview Linda Danz, author of "A Birdhouse In Brooklyn" for Friggin Fabulous Radio. Carole and Linda discuss Linda's novel, which takes place in the aftermath of the events of September 11, 2001, and is a story of the lives of disparate people brought together by circumstance.
They also talk about the book publishing industry, how to self publish, age discrimination, how to re-invent yourself and more!

I sat down with Helene Stapinski, author of "Five Finger Discount, A Crooked Family History" at Word Booksellers, 123 Newark Avenue in downtown Jersey City. I read "Five Finger Discount" a while back and wanted to read it again as soon as I was done.
It chronicles her experiences with her family growing up in a gritty Jersey City in the early 1970's as well as the political corruption over the years and lots of other history.
Helene is also raising money for a documentary version of the book. The Kickstarter campaign is over, but you can still contribute here:
