Former flight attendant and Arizona native goes even bigger for her 2nd aviation thriller

In a former life, T.J. Newman was a flight attendant and a bookseller at Changing Hands bookstore right here in the Valley. Now she is a New York Times bestselling author who’s just out with her second much anticipated book. 

It’s called “Drowning,” and its plot is as suspenseful as her first aviation thriller, “ Falling.” The Show spoke with her more about writing them — and their real-life inspiration.

T.J. Newman  will appear at The Poisoned Pen Bookstore in Scottsdale on Tuesday night.
