In 2015, I was honored to be asked to help continue John Seigenthaler's literary legacy by co-hosting A WORD ON WORDS, his long-running literary television series on Nashville Public Television.

It has been an incredible ride alongside my fabulous co-host, fellow Nashville author Mary Laura Philpott, talking with authors from all kinds of genres and walks of life. And in 2017, we were over the moon to win an EMMY for our first season!

Take a second, pop up your feet, and hear from some of your favorite authors. You can learn more about the show here, and follow along online at Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. #keepreading
