Author Patty Wiseman will appear on Arkansas news station KTSS to discuss her latest historical romance novel, ‘An Unlikely Arrangement’. The 30 minute interview will air six times on July 27, 2012. Show times are 3am, 7am, 10am, 12pm, 5:30pm and 9pm Central Time.
As a romance novelist, Wiseman has been called a ‘master of the unexpected twist’ who produces contagious storylines. In ‘An Unlikely Arrangement’, three lives intertwine through the differing worlds of high society, middle-class life, and organized crime, culminating in an engagement, a kidnapping, a misunderstanding and a murder. The story is set in 1929 Detroit.
“I wrote this book,” stated Ms. Wiseman, “because of my fascination with the era that redefined modern womanhood, The Roaring Twenties. There is mystery, mayhem, and murder - all written in such a way as to keep the reader guessing. My love of this era comes to life with the rebellion of a character based on the true story of a woman who wants to break free of the mold others have established. Her innocence is shattered when she makes a drastic decision that changes the way she sees the world in 1929.”
During her television appearance, Wiseman will also discuss the writing process, research and a number of other issues related to writing engaging fiction. Other events scheduled for June, July and August, 2012 include:

There are two more in the works. One is a romantic comedy. Her most recent award is a 2012 Roughdraft short story contest where she placed 2nd.
“One of the true joys of writing this series," continued Wiseman, "is the ability to do research. Attention to detail of the era in which I write is the glue that pulls my novels together. Descriptions are fine, but to me, actually using a dialect of the region, an action that includes a function of their wardrobe, or mannerism popular only in that era is what makes it all believable. To craft a story that draws the reader into the past and makes it real is the reward I hope to attain.”
