Show Notes

It’s ten years into the future and that scheming (but irresistible) trollop Jessica Wakefield has stolen her sister Elizabeth’s fiance (and sentient basketball jersey) Todd Wilkins and is about to marry him herself! Elizabeth’s fled to New York to nurse her broken heart and plot her revenge. Sounds pretty good, right? HAHAHAHAA WRONG. Unfortunately good ol’ Francine Pascal showed up to write the final word on Sweet Valley herself and let’s just say . This week we welcome bestselling author and ghostwriter Rachel Bertsche to the pod to talk about the art of ghostwriting and the legacy of Sweet Valley. And do not even think about missing the LAVALIER AWARDS where we’ll nominate the worst sentences Francine has ever written and crown a winner.

Wokefield is written and hosted by Elizabeth Gomez and Adrienne Gunn. Produced and engineered by J.W. Basilo for Shame The Devil Media.
