Jen lives on the north side of Chicago. She is actively involved and on the board of Special Olympics in Chicago. Jen loves the Chicago food scene, is a theater junkie and loves a bike ride on her beloved lakefront.

Susan Segal was driving her daughter to school one day when a city bus had to swerve into her BMW in order to miss a runaway truck.  Her daughter, Alyce, stepped out of the impossible wreckage and was miraculously unscathed. Susan required a laborious extrication from the vehicle and barely survived, having broken nearly every bone in her body, including her neck.  Today, she is the picture of health and her husband Doug Segal tells the story of how and why she is today a walking miracle in his book Struck: A Husband's Memoir of Trauma and Triumph (Prospect Park Books, September 2018)

You can guess it: they are Superheroes of Love.  The Segal family believes in the power of love, the unique love of friends, family and complete strangers in a time of crisis, and its ability to bring Susan through this healing saga that could have, at hundreds of points in time, taken a sharp turn toward a far darker end of this story.

You will hear from Doug, Susan and their son Michael, whose life was, of course, also struck by this tragedy-turned-miracle story of love.

Kelly Notaras had an illustrious career in publishing. Right out of college she jumped into Avon Books (which subsequently folded into Harper Collins) in New York City as an editor and worked her way up, up, up until she started her own business kn Literary which is the company she created to help shepherd the dearly beloved books we all have inside us -- that we were as the title of her book says "born to write. Check out her brand new book: The Book You Were Born to Write.

The conversation covers how Kelly's "shepherd fairy" duties - as both 1) shepherd helping carry the emotional load for authors  and 2) fairy godmother seeing the beauty and magic in each of our stories -- span into her personal life.  Kelly generously gave up over a year of her life to help shepherd her friend and partner through dying and death.  This is the article she mentions that began as a Facebook post and went viral: Self Magazine article "Doing Death Differently"

During the interview a major "aha" moment erupted in screams when it was discovered that it was an article by Kelly about the 25 publishers that accept unsolicited manuscripts that got Bridget her publishing deal!  That article is no longer available via google search, but Kelly did say that you can sign up for kn Literary's email list and you will get it!
