And here’s more about her:

The Screen Queen (also known as Lois Cahall) began her career as a newspaper journalist in Boston, Massachusetts and as an associate producer for Nick Krantz (son of Judith Krantz) pursuing true-life stories for CBS TV movies.

This is Ms. Cahall’s twentieth year as “The Screen Queen” (www.screenqueen.com), a syndicated radio personality covering the movie beat with an eye toward educating the “Bus Stop Mom” about age-appropriate family viewing of the latest Hollywood releases. Her broadcasts over the Saga Communications network reach more than 1 million listeners every week.

Stepping outside of her persona of “The Screen Queen” Ms. Cahall writes about women’s empowerment issues for women’s magazines – including Redbook, Seventeen, SELF, Marie Claire, Ladies Home Journal, Reader’s Digest, Men’s Journal, Bon Appetit. In the UK she’s written for RED and Psychologies magazines and for the London Times.

In 2010 Ms. Cahall pursued her mission of addressing issues in women’s daily lives as a host of TV’s ABC News’ Top Priority and occasional host of Good Morning America Now.

Ms. Cahall’s second novel Court of the Myrtles released May of 2013, Bloomsbury is being called “Tuesdays with Morrie on estrogen” by Ladies Home Journal. Ms. Cahall first novel Plan C: Just in Case, published January of 2012, by Bloomsbury, shot to number one on the top-ten fiction chart for eBooks on Amazon UK. It remained in the top three for the year. It has since sold to foreign translation markets in hardcover and made its American debut in paperback in July of 2012. The novel is edited by Simon Beaufoy, The Full Monty screenwriter who won both the Oscar & Golden Globe for his runaway script Slumdog Millionaire.

Ms. Cahall has taught writing courses at University of Massachusetts (from 2000-2003) and lectured at the Writer’s Conference of America. Most recently Cahall has taught non-fiction at the prestigious Four Arts Society of Palm Beach, Florida, is a member of the Authors Guild and represented by PFD in the UK & Inkwell Management in New York. She divides her life between New York City, London and Palm Beach.
