Author and journalist Anne Da Vigo joins Lois to talk about her books and her process.
Anne's journalism career (specializing in feature writing and crime reporting), spanned more than a dozen years at newspapers throughout California. Her latest -- Bakersfield Boys Club -- was loosely inspired by the Lords of Bakersfield murders of the 1970s and 1980s. Da Vigo covered the trial in the first of the Lords murder cases.
She is the author of a previous thriller -- Thread of Gold -- and numerous short stories. She is also part of the Blue Moon writers' group that meets weekly in Davis; and, as always, continues to write.
The finale of today's show is two Merle Haggard songs about Bakersfield.
