Naked and Hungry Coming to “The State of Things” on WUNC Radio!

Naked and Hungry will be going public soon! Public radio, that is. This week I was delighted to receive an invitation from WUNC Radio (91.5 FM) to appear on next Wednesday’s (Oct. 26) edition of “The State of Things” hosted by Frank Stasio. I’ll be interviewed during the last half hour of the noon show, which is a live program featuring the issues, personalities, and places of North Carolina.

Recent guests have included diverse personalities such as Charles Frazier, author of Cold Mountain, Wanda Jackson, America’s first female rock and roller, and researcher Michael Fishbach, an advocate for whale conservation (one of Jessica’s heroes, by the way). I’m particularly humbled to follow in the footsteps of good friend Mary Lambeth Moore, author of Sleeping with Patty Hearst, who also appeared earlier this year.

For the past 25 years, WUNC has been the bastion of quality programming, NPR news and classical music in our state. Are you a fan? If so, do your part and pledge now to help support everything you enjoy on WUNC. And you might also win a trip to Italy!

I’m very excited but my heart’s already racing. In fact, I can hear Myrtle right now: “Lordy be! Girl, you’re a writer. Do you think you’re ready for 17 minutes of live radio?” I’m hoping she’ll pray for me. Also hoping you’ll send positive energy my way next week.

    Ashley, I was delighted when I heard this morning that you were going to be on the State of Things today. I’ll be on the road but will be listening. You’ll be great! We must get together and catch up.

    Hope you’ll be coming to Quail Ridge for a book signing. I certainly want to purchase a copy for you to autograph. Do you still have you fountain pen that we gave you when you took flight from the Agency. I always knew you would need it for your first published novel.

    Love and best wishes,
    Mary Reca

      Hi Lady!

      What a sweet note. Would love to catch up! I’ve missed you terribly. I do hope to come to Quail Ridge in the future, so I will let you know when! In the meantime, let’s have lunch!

      Love to you,
      Ashley
