At today’s Writing Workshop, we’ll have special guest Alex Kiester, author of newly released The Truth About Ben and June, a novel that explores the complexity of a modern-day marriage when a new mother vanishes, and her husband must retrace events of their recent past to bring her home.

Alex will be speaking about her new book, her writing process, and her path to publication. Her first book, Audible original suspense thriller In Her Skin, was released in 2019.
