World Literature Professor and Romance Novelist Piper Huguley joins us again to talk books. We talk Shakespeare, Ibsen, dePIzon, and Federici. We talk about the ways in which books can open us up to new ideas and ways of thinking about things, and how far back the roots of feminism really go. And I suggest a book project for somebody if they want to take it on. Just mention me in the acknowledgements, ok?
Jess Michaels speaks to the amazing Piper Huguley about the weirdness of names, learning from first books, being a planster and her process, the issues in the CBA and making strides with characters of color in Christian fiction.
There are genres and then there are subgenres. One of the things I love about speaking with writers across all types of books is learning about the complicated world their books inhabit. In this case, Piper Huguley writes historical black romance, and this sits inside the romance novel world, but in a completely new way. I was so moved talking to Piper about how she focuses on an era that has been so glossed over, and tells stories that bring the people of the time to life, people who have been forgotten or ignored in our textbooks, and I know you will be, too.

If you love Historical characters that have depth, grit and perseverance, then you won't want to miss Award-Winning and Bestselling author, Piper Huguley! Piper joins me on Thursday, April 20th at 6pm EST to chat about her latest novel, A Champion's Heart: Born to Win Men.Book Blurb:1935. Champion Bates left poky old Winslow, Georgia when he was seventeen years old. He had promised to elope with his childhood sweetheart, but pressured by other influences, he took an earlier train leaving his Delie behind. The pain at leaving her behind has tormented him for the seven years he fought as a ham and egg boxer, trying to make himself worthy of her. He had no chance for the big time until now. He has a fight with a contender boxer--a white man. However, he has been told more fighting will possibly blind him. Back in Winslow, Cordelia “Delie” Bledsoe is out of luck. A teacher in the local school, she has the care of several children who have been abandoned by their parents. She’s offered $200 to take the children out of Georgia. She wants to take them to her family in Pittsburgh to live on a family farm, but Champion Bates shows up, insistent on helping her. She does not want to trust her old love, but has little choice. Champion wants to redeem himself with his former sweetheart and doesn’t expect much, but the hair and eyes of one of Delie’s young children tugs at his heart. In this story of sacrifice, Champ and Delie struggle to learn about love and both must grow A Champion’s Heart.
