SQUAWK RADIO WELCOMES NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR LUANNE RICE ON THURSDAY

I first met Luanne Rice when I was attending the RWA conference in Washington, D.C. a few years ago. She was already one of the bestselling women's fiction authors in the world, but there wasn't a hint of the diva about her. We connected immediately and I can honestly say that she is one of the most kind, warm and gentle souls I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. The warmth you feel in your heart when you read one of her novels is simply an extension of the warmth she projects as a human being. (And we also share a healthy appreciation for pretty men ;))






She began her writing career in 1985 with her debut novel ANGELS ALL OVER TOWN (which was recently reprinted). Since then she has gone on to write over 20 novels, including such bestsellers as CLOUD NINE, DREAM COUNTRY, FIREFLY BEACH, SUMMER LIGHT, TRUE BLUE, DANCE WITH ME and THE PERFECT SUMMER. A number of her novels have been adapted for television including CRAZY IN LOVE for TNT, and BLUE MOON for CBS. Both FOLLOW THE STARS HOME and SILVER BELLS were Hallmark Hall of Fame presentations and BEACH GIRLS is a summer drama series for Lifetime Television.

This summer she has SUMMER OF ROSES out in paperback and her brand new hardcover SANDCASTLES is currently a New York Times bestseller. Luanne resides in New York City and on the Connecticut shorline, in the house where she spent her childhood summers.

Please join me in welcoming Luanne Rice to Squawk Radio!
