One of the best summer reads I had in the 1980s was Shining Through, another bestseller from novelist Susan Isaacs. I read that book twice. Smart, surprising, action-packed, provocative...and it had a very cool love story. The lead character in action is Linda Voss. Thank you, Susan, for that character. Susan Isaacs is one of the most fascinating and generous people I've had the pleasure of meeting in my career. In fact, she helped me during the early part of my career when I was co-host of a live show on WISN TV, Milwaukee's ABC affiliate. After arguing with the executive producer who felt that writers were boring guests, I booked Susan. She killed. Not only a good writer, she's very funny. The studio audience loved her. We hired a new executive producer.
