with Tosca Lee Author of A Single Light

17 November 2022

Tosca Lee is a beauty queen, a ballerina, a pianist, and she lives on a working farm in Nebraska. She is the award-winning New York Times bestselling author of eleven novels of which her latest is A Single Light, a sequel to her much-acclaimed The Line Between. With a cast of compelling characters, Tosca creates a Dystopian world in which an extinct disease has re-emerged from the melting Alaskan permafrost to cause madness in its victims. Next year, sees the publication of The Long March Home, co-authored with Marcus Brotherton, a riveting story about a group of young American soldiers surviving the Japanese invasion of the Philippines in December 1941. Few are aware that Japan struck just hours after its attack on Pearl Harbour.  Tosca has made her name in what is known as speculative fiction. Often her books are religiously-themed, controversial and praised for their lyrical prose, extensive research and vivid imagery.  Writing was not Tosca’s first calling. She was training in the ballet, until curtailed by an injury. In the 1990s she won beauty pageants, becoming Mrs. Nebraska America and Mrs. Nebraska United States. She based her first attempt at being a novelist in the United Kingdom with a story about Stonehenge. But it remains unpublished. Her first published book, Demon Memoir came out in 2006 after six years of rejections. What a journey!  Join Tosca Lee with Humphrey Hawksley on Goldster Inside Story at 12.00 November 17th 2022, where Tosca will reveal the best and worst pieces of writing advice she has ever received, and Humphrey will run a quiz as to how Tosca got her name.
