Prime Time Radio host Mike Cuthbert talks with Maz Rauber and Amy Reingold, the writing duo behind the new book series Capital Girls, juicy young adult novels about girls growing up among the powerful and privileged of Washington, D.C.

Under the pseudonym Ella Monroe, the duo — Rauber is a former New York Post political reporter, and Reingold is a writer, artist and chef — released the first two books in the series, Capital Girls and Secrets and Lies, in 2012. This April, the third book in the series, Truth or Dare, hits bookstores and online retailers.

Rauber and Reingold, both of whom are mothers to college-age kids who were raised in the D.C. area, talk about their friendship, their midcareer reinvention as teen fiction authors and the growing popularity of their new creation.
