Public Defender Turned Novelist with Reyna Marder Gentin

Episode Summary

My guest today grew up in Great Neck, New York. She attended college and law school at Yale. For many years, she practiced as an appellate attorney with a public defender's office before turning to writing full time. She studied at the Writing Institute at Sarah Lawrence College, and her work has been published widely online and in print. Her debut novel, UNREASONABLE DOUBTS, was named a finalist for the Women's Fiction Writers Association Star Award in 2019. Her first middle grade novel, MY NAME IS LAYLA, won the 2021 gold medal in the Moonbeam Children's Awards in pre-teen fiction. Her latest novel, BOTH ARE TRUE is called a "moving novel that examines what it means to start over--with surprising consequences." Welcome to Authors Over 50, Rayna Marder Gentin.
