Cathy Bruno, author of The Pathway of the Chosen series joins Marta On The Move!
I am extremely into fantasy and fiction writers. I love how their minds work, and reading what spills over onto the pages. My all time favorite author is Stephen King and favorite book series is The Dark Tower. Ever since reading it, I have been searching for new authors to fill the hole that any book leaves when you are that obsessed. (Yes I used the word obsessed), about it. I love to interview creators from my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA, and delves into their process.
I met Cathy through my friend Day Bracey from Drinking Partners Podcast, and he told me about her first book in the series The Girl from the North. I instantly downloaded it to give it a try, and found myself immersed into the rich landscape she painted within her world. Cathy started off writing poetry and that thoughtfulness shows through in the story she weaves. I am already finished with the second book in the series, and I, like many others, am awaiting the third. Patiently................ :)
Join me as we chat about what the process is to make a book, what her habits are, how to self publish, and explore the characters she has written about in The Pathway of the Chosen series.

Was just on with Kelly at Star 100.7. Love that gal! Tune in to this snippet highlighting my upcoming event this May!
So I recently just got back from my solo volunteer project in Portugal to help build houses for the homeless, and I hunkered down in my second experience staying in a Hostel. Hostels are a hot topic in the travel world, and thanks to many horror movies that have been released featuring them, they have not gotten a good rap in some people's minds. I am here to change people's perceptions of that. I had an incredible time at the hostel I stayed at, and met so many interesting people while residing there. I thought, what better way to highlight the good things about hostels, than to investigate Pittsburgh's very own!
Introducing Jon Potter who created Not Another Hostel, Pittsburgh's first hostel! I could not wait to sit down with this extremely motivated and fascinating dude. Very much like myself, Jon wanted to bring different ideas and cultural traditions back to his hometown, and he is using his travels to influence locals. Along with my great friend, John Schalcosky from The Odd, Mysterious, and Fascinating History of Pittsburgh, we chat with Jon about why he started his hostel, what influenced him, and what people should come to expect when thinking about choosing one on their trips. Here is hoping to opening up a whole new world to travelers! Keep it moving everybody!
