On Sunday, November 18th from 12-2pm, join Left Coast Writers® Live on FCCFREE RADIO’s popular show, Lilycat on Stuff. Lilycat’s guests on Sunday will be Wanderland Writers anthology contributors Cyndi Goddard, Linda Jue and Anne Sigmon talking about the newest title in the collection: Wandering in Cuba: Revolution and Beyond.
Cyndi Goddard grew up under the pale sky of Florida’s west coast. She studied creative writing at Tulane University in New Orleans, and Spanish art and literature in Madrid. After college, Cyndi spent six months exploring Paris and writing her first novel. After alighting briefly in Austin, then Los Angeles, Cyndi made her home in San Francisco’s Mission District, where she composed lyrics for a punk band, and poetry and short fiction for small literary magazines such as Sail, Cruising World, Sailing, Latitude 38 and regional sailing publications. She is a member of Sisters in Crime and Left Coast Writers. Her current writing projects are a mystery novel that takes place in the San Francisco Bay Area and the first volume of a near-future science fiction series.
Linda Jue was inspired by Watergate to become an investigative reporter more than forty years ago. Since then, she has uncovered international political intrigue behind a local murder, exposed the politics of homelessness in San Francisco, documented the trends of Asian organized crime, tracked down the fates of fleeing dissidents after Tiananmen Square. Currently, Linda is an editor-at-large for 100Reporters, a national investigative reporting news site based in Washington, D.C. She is past president of the Northern California Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and a former associate of the Center for Investigative Reporting and a former editor at San Francisco Focus magazine/KQED. Her work has appeared in San Francisco Focus, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, SF Weekly, GEO, Consumer Health Interactive, Los Angeles Times Syndicate, Toronto Globe and Mail, the former MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour, PBS’ Frontline, and other outlets.
Anne Sigmon flunked jump rope in seventh grade and washed out of college P.E. After college, she headed for San Francisco and a career in public relations. Exotic travel was the stuff of dreams until, at thirty-eight, she married Jack, took tea with erstwhile headhunters in Borneo and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro at forty-three. Five years later, she was zapped by a career-ending stroke caused by an obscure autoimmune disease called Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS). Anne’s personal essays and travel stories have appeared in local and national publications including Good Housekeeping and Stroke Connection magazines and the anthologies Wandering in Costa Rica, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Find Your Happiness, and Travel Stories from Around the Globe.
