Of the Stars

Her main character tugged at her imagination, following her through life for twenty years.  This tenacious character, Astra Davies, eventually became A Bright Young Thing and launched as a novel and audiobook this month.  Astra (the name means of the stars) solves family mysteries, dodges innuendo and lies and creates financial independence with plucky charm and wit.   In our chat with author Brianne Moore, she explains why she set her bright young heroine in the early 1930’s, and shares why she is grateful for PBS, family gardens and a teacher’s instrumental vote of confidence.  Oh, and her narrator Shiromi Arserio delivers a dazzling Astra! Episode 30 is bright, shiny, entertaining, and fun!
