Patti Callahan Henry is a New York Times, USA Today, and The Globe best-selling author of fifteen novels, including one of her recent best sellers BECOMING MRS. LEWIS; it’s a unique improbable love story of two real people, Joy Davidman and C.S. Lewis. She makes it look so easy! We’ll talk to Patti about the creative process and everything that goes into becoming a best-selling author, from start to finish. I also wanted to talk specifically about BECOMING MRS. LEWIS. I really loved this story; the narrative is that of a very strong woman who lived in the 1940s and 50s and how she left an abusive relationship to find herself. It’s not something women traditionally did back in the day ---- but Joy did it.
Patti is the recipient of The Christy Award - 2019 Winner - "Book of the Year” and The Harper Lee Distinguished Writer of the Year for 2020.
She even has a popular podcast of her own, "Behind the Scenes of Becoming Mrs. Lewis and she’s the co-host of a weekly web show Friends and Fiction with 4 other bestselling authors.
And if that wasn’t enough to impress you, Patti has another novel that will be released next year, SURVIVING SAVANNAH. I’ve reconnected with Patti and I have really enjoyed watching her success story unfold.
