  It’s a homecoming of sorts as Word By Word’s previous host Jordan Rosenfeld has a conversation with Gil Mansergh about her debut novel Forged In Grace which will be released the last day of February. Jordan, who has relocated to the South Bay, says she returns to the KRCB studio with “a bit of nostalgia.” An author, editor and writing coach, Jordan also knows a thing about magical realism and writing, confessing that the idea for the story began when, Marly, the wild beauty in the novel, began whispering to Jordan as she was stoking a fire in a little cabin. “Marly soon revealed another character who would take over the book, Grace, who is consumed by fires, both literal and metaphoric.”
