Summer is winding down. Kids are heading back to school, and parents are getting back into the school day routine. What better way to unwind after a long day, than to sit down with a good book? Today’s authors have a variety for you – from Western to Sci-Fi, from Historical Fiction to Humor. Two are familiar voices on Red River Radio, and two are entirely new. Join us as we get to know them better!

Ken Farmer

Ken Farmer didn’t write his first full novel until he was sixty-nine years of age. He often wonders what the hell took him so long. At age seventy-seven…he’s currently working on book number twenty-five. He has won several national awards for his novels. He is the author of the Nations Series, Bone and Lorraine Series, The Black Eagle Force Series and many more.

Mari Collier

Mari Collier was born on a farm in Iowa. Since then she’s lived in Arizona, Northwest Washington, and moved to Southern California after retiring from Nintendo of America. She is the curator for the Accessions Committee at the local Historical Society and volunteers as a docent at the Old Schoolhouse Museum. Mari is the author of Chronicles of the Maca Series, Star Lady Tales Series, and The Chronicles of Tonath Series

Philip Rivera

Philip Rivera recently arrived on the self-publishing scene wearing cargo shorts, a polo shirt, deck shoes and with his youngest child strapped to his body. As an author, he proves that minivans, child-rearing, husbandly duties and teaching high school are all lethal weapons when placed in his whimsical mind. His first book, Suburban Luchador: Memoirs From Suburbia, was written entirely on a riding lawnmower in his sunny Florida suburb for motivational purposes. 

Tune in Monday at 4:00 PM Eastern
