New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe found her true calling in environmental fiction when she moved to coastal South Carolina. Already a successful author, she was captivated by the beauty and fragility of her new home. Living in the midst of a quickly changing habitat gave her a strong and important focus for her novels.

Mary Alice talks with host Patricia McLinn about using her fears of natural disasters and her desire to educate people on the impact of climate change as the catalysts for her writing.

In her own words: 'That's why I write about [climate change]. I think evacuation is going to become a major concern of every American, all humans on this planet, in the next decade as we face natural disasters and also droughts and food shortages.' [14:18]
