Clearwater, FL — Patzi Gil, host of the popular radio talk program “Joy on Paper” (www.radio-joyonpaper.com), has announced that mystery writer Rita Moreau has been added as a special contributor. The show is broadcast Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11 a.m., on WTAN, 1340-AM, 106.1-FM, and is available online at http://www.tantalk1340.com, as well as nationally on the Starcom Network.
The show’s host summarized the book-oriented program this way: “My goal is to help authors reach readers and to inspire those who are dreaming of writing to follow their dream.”
“Joy on Paper” recently celebrated its second anniversary; the long-term goal is for the show to appear on more than 100 stations by the end of the year. Adding Moreau is a step in that direction.
“I am so thrilled and honored that author Rita Moreau has joined Joy On Paper as a special contributor for a new segment: Book Buzz—The Best of Mysteries,” Patzi said. “Rita knows mysteries—the author of three mysteries herself, she is a connoisseur of the genre.”
“Book Buzz, The Best of Mysteries” can also be heard at www.radio-joyonpaper.com/book-buzz-mysteries.
Moreau is the author of “Feisty Nuns,” “Bribing Saint Anthony,” and “Nuns! Psychics! & Gypsies Oh No!” She’s just one of many authors Joy On Paper has featured. Others include Mary Higgins Clark, Carolyn G. Hart, Lawrence Block, Sue Grafton, Robin Cook, Jojo Moyes, Brad Meltzer, Margaret George, Deborah Johnson, James Shapiro, David E. Hoffman, C. J. Box and Lori Wilde.
“It’s my joy to talk every week to amazing authors—from best-selling New York Times authors to those who’ve just released their first book,” Patzi said. “For me it’s always fun to hear about the passion to write and what it takes to become a published author. It’s fun for me to hear their stories, and I hope that their words will inspire new writers.”
A film screenwriter with a deep affection for books, Patzi doesn’t limit her guest list to big-name authors from New York or Los Angeles. She is constantly looking to interview newbies, local authors and others in the Tampa Bay literary community.
