Last week, writer Felicia Sullivan launched her new radio show, Writers Revealed. This week's edition was all about family, particularly the notion of the “bad mother.” Felicia led a lively discussion with authors Elissa Schappell (Use Me), Liesel Litzenburger (Now You Love Me), Sabina Murray (A Carnivore’s Inquiry) and Victoria Redel (Loveryboy). Topics included the authors' books and the mother characters in each, "good" mothers, Dina Lohan and raising children in this age of influence (internet, tv, movies) and influential marketing.
