The Globe and Mail

I’ve done close to one hundred interviews, between research for my three books, Why She Left Us, Hiroshima in the Morning and my next novel just completed, Shadow Child.  Now, I get a taste of my own medicine!  I had a wonderful, spirited conversation with Sarah Hampson, a writer for the Globe and Mail, which went through so many topics in only one hour.  According to her recounting of it, I said my children “don’t annoy me”!

Ha! Well, I probably said it because they don’t.  I love them.  And they both crushed me in Scrabble Slam last night.

From the article:

On Mother’s Day, her boys will be with her. They will cook pancakes or waffles together. If it’s nice out, they’ll go for a walk through the botanical gardens. “I’m a better mother because I’m not concerned with ‘shoulds’,” she says. “Now that I’m divorced and I have them for specific amounts of time, I can give them my full attention when I have them.”

Talking with Dr. Laura Berman

Here’s a clip from yesterday’s radio interview, which was a wonderful, in-depth hour conversation.  (This is just a seven minute section.)

“Oprah Radio host Dr. Laura Berman talks with Rahna Reiko Rizzuto, author of Hiroshima in the Morning, about her unconventional mothering style. Plus, they discuss how modern women are redefining their roles as mothers.”
