Ep. 58: Mary Kay Andrews, Author of Hello Summer

This week I welcome New York Times bestselling author and queen of the beach read, Mary Kay Andrews, back to the podcast. Her novels include Sunset Beach, The Weekenders, Summer Rental, her latest, Hello Summer and many more.

“Hello, Summer is another gem by the always wonderful Mary Kay Andrews.” -PopSugar



We spoke last month about launching Hello Summer during the height of the pandemic,  the ways her early career as a journalist influenced this love letter to the small town newspaper, what she’s been reading and writing at home, and much more.


You can also listen on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts.

Did you miss last summer’s episode with Mary Kay Andrews? You can still listen to episode 36, when we chatted about Sunset Beach and Mary Kay’s fascinating journey as a writer.
