On the morning of April 6, 2020, Stacey Horan interviewed my about my recent book release, “Beach City,” which is a non-fiction novella about moving from Southern California to Central Florida.
Tune into the Bookshop and the End of the Internet to learn about my writing journey and the things that motivated me to become the girl I am today.
Listen to Stacey’s Interview
In this week’s episode of The Bookshop at the End of the Internet, author Alanna Ritchie discusses her newest work, Beach City: A Memoire of a 19 Year-Old Cali Girl. The book is an homage to growing up in Southern California and grappling with coming of age angst as well as excitement. It is a story of the narrator’s transition from girl to woman while trying to proclaim who she is and what she wants. Alanna always wanted to write books, and she started writing Beach City over a summer while in college. Seventeen years later, the book is now published. These days, Alanna finds herself doing a great deal of writing-—product marketing and blog posts for work, as well as her own poetry and two other published books. Tune in to hear Alanna chat about her writing journey, her desire to find her own unique voice through her writing, and her belief that readers want stories about accessible people, insecurities and all.
