    A few Words with 'Dear Friend' Gina L. Mulligan

    Author and philanthropist Gina L. Mulligan began her award-winning writing career more than 20 years ago. Starting out as a successful freelance journalist she eventually moved on to short stories and then historical fiction, releasing her first novel, “Remember the Ladies,” in May of 2016. She quickly followed that up with her second novel, “From Across the Room,” in September of that same year. Mulligan’s latest project is a lot more personal. Drawing on her own experience of battling breast cancer, Mulligan started the charity Girls Love Mail, which collects letters of hope and encouragement from around the globe to be distributed to women through cancer treatment centers and programs nationwide. To date, Girls Love Mail has collected over 100,000 letters, 100 of which are featured in Mulligan’s new book “Dear Friend: Letters of Encouragement, Humor and Love for Women with Breast Cancer.” The project has drawn national attention that keeps her very busy, but Gina graciously made time recently to sit down with the Open Mic to talk about “Dear Friend," the art and craft of historical fiction and the state of the publishing industry.

    A Few Words With Historical Fiction Author Erika Mailman

     

    The morning of August 4, 1892 in Fall River, Massachusetts started out like most any other warm summer New England day.
