About This Show
Mary Alice Monroe has written stories for as long as she can remember. As a child she could always be found curled up with a book or writing. Although she currently rights fiction, she began as a journalist. It was during months of bed rest during a difficult pregnancy that she began fiction and now has written more than a dozen novels.
Although known for her intimate portrayals of women's lives, her writing has gained added purpose and depth with her move to the South Carolina Lowcountry. Mary Alice is involved with several environmental groups and is on the board of the South Carolina Aquarium. She joins Walter to talk about her latest book, Time is a River, her love of the Lowcountry, and he passion for environmental work.
