Theresa Dodaro survived a life-threatening illness, waking from a coma determined to make the most of the time she had been gifted. One of the promises she made to herself: write. Since then, she has published four books and is working on her fifth.

On this episode we discuss her journey and her process, how she combines her love of Long Island history with a desire to promote healing and communication through her work. The historical novels she writes draw from her own past, her genealogical research, and her eye for a good story. That can lead to a coming-of-age tale in 1960s Baldwin, an epic of World War II refugees, or a time travel romance on the South Shore in 1912. No matter the era, the human element remains the same.
