Houston native Olga Campos Benz has taken her 30-plus years of newsroom experience and written a book, her first, that gives audiences a little peek behind the curtain of the five o'clock news. The protagonist of It’s News to Me, Marissa Cavelo, is a news anchor in Austin unwillingly specializing in puff pieces. On a hunt for stories that will raise her profile and make her superiors take her seriously, Marissa stumbles upon a scandal, complete with criminals willing to do just about anything to keep her quiet. A strained relationship with her twin sister and a romantic interest in her photographer compound Marissa’s troubles in this ultimately humorous, thoroughly modern and Latin-flavored work of fiction.
