“Montana” is a mystery (novel)

For over 30 years, Gwen Florio covered the news - everything from war in Afghanistan to crime in Missoula - as a print reporter. The recent release of her mystery novel, "Montana", marks the debut of her new career as a full-time author.

In this feature interview, Florio talks with News Director Sally Mauk about the new novel - and how she came to write a mystery.

"There's a part of me that wants to correct a lot of the images of journalists you always see in movies."

 

Retired in 2014 but still a presence at MTPR, Sally Mauk is a University of Kansas graduate and former wilderness ranger who has reported on everything from the Legislature to forest fires.
