Kris RadishWelcome to Radishland!  

   My life as a daughter, sister, mother, journalist and about 100 other things(even a worm picker) has given me a chance to explore the emotional and physical territority that all women share. I like to think that I've created my own genre—Broads Who Have Been There—because I write about real women and the real issues we all face every day. So there's a laugh on one page and a tear on the next and my stories of female friendship, love, loss, empowerment, and living life to the fullest every single day should make you feel as if you are reading about your own life.
     My new book and tenth novel, The Year of Necessary Lies, is something new for me–historical fiction–and the reviews and my reader's responses have been fantastic. The book captures an important time for women, 1904-05, and includes plume hunters, secret love, the sufferage movement, wild pig farmers, brave women and wild rattlesnakes. That's just one chapter!
      The '16 Radish Reader's Retreat was a huge success and the 2017 Radish Reader's Retreat only has a few more spots if you want to jump on board!
    And oh yes... #11 will be out next fall. Joy of Joys!!! Prepare yourselves!  Stay tuned my friends.



Thank you for Reading Radish!!!
