Elisabeth Embry talks with Linda Stasi, columnist for New York Daily News, author of Book of Judas and previous writer for the New York Post, is also an on-camera TV co-host with Mark Simone on NY 1 -Spectrum “What a Week.”
Brash, funny and opinionated, the acerbic Stasi has authored six books and won numerous awards including “Best Columnist” by the Newswomen’s Club of NY, “Best Humor Columnist,” and “Woman of the Year: 2006” by the Boys Town of Italy.
Her first novel, novel, “The Sixth Station,” ( Forge Books) was published in early 2013. The completion of which took five years, two mountain climbs in France, a drive alone through three countries with an exorcist priest from the Vatican, a week with monks, two days of interviews with a cloistered nun in the mountains of Manoppello, Italy, and – voila! – one lost relic found and one novel completed.
