Ronald Smith, who lives in Baltimore, had a career of a couple of decades writing ad copy. His book writing, his fiction, was off to the side until he found himself rediscovering books he’d loved as a child.

He’s just published his first book, called Hoodoo, and Ronald Smith is with Sheilah in the studio to talk about it. He’ll be speaking about it this weekend at the Baltimore Book Festival, Friday afternoon at 1:30, at the Enoch Pratt Free Library Children's Stage. Two weeks later, Friday Oct. 9, he’ll speak at KidLitCon on the “Middle Grade Horror” panel at the Hyatt Place in Baltimore.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
