La Literati hosts Tisha and Niles are happy to welcome back author Mara Purl to our show. She was our first guest. Mara pioneered small-town fiction for women with her popular and critically acclaimed Milford-Haven Novels. Her beloved fictitious town has been delighting audiences since 1992, when it first appeared as Milford-Haven, U.S.A- the first American radio drama ever licensed and broadcast by the BBC. The show reached an audience of 4.5 million listeners throughout the U.K. Her books and stories include “Where The Heart Lives” and “When Otters Play”. She also talks about her recent co-starring role in Sea Marks and her long-time connection to California’s Central Coast.

Mara Purl will be interviewed about her career as an actress, writer-producer, and author returning to LA Talk Radio’s Question Reality, the premiere Hollywood career show. Priscilla Leona, the high-energy host, is dedicated to helping her listeners “question the reality of the business” as they work to match their talents with actual opportunities by interviewing successful professionals. Though the show is fun and upbeat, Priscilla digs deep to get at the reality of “the Biz.” As a “triple-threat,” Mara will share stories about her recent performances, and her two upcoming publications: the short story When Otters Play and the new novel Why Hearts Keep Secrets.
