Welcome to The Screen Queen
Follow me on twitter:  LoCahall
and become a fan on Facebook: Screen Queen and/or Lois Cahall author
Film critic, cultural critic, author, lover of all things French and occasional Muse…not necessarily in that order;  Mother of 2 daughters, cousin of 1 Iron Chef, Geoffrey Zakarian, and 1 all-time favorite film: The Deer Hunter.  
Vice President of the Southeastern Film Critics Association, Screen Queen’s column began 23 years ago in newspapers as far north as Maine, and as far south as Miami, with Indiana someplace (west and) in-between. She can be heard on the Saga Communications Group of radio stations.  Screen Queen’s written reviews are syndicated worldwide on MRQE. 
While The Screen Queen (sponsored by Pepsi) spends most of her time in darkened theaters to see what films are hot and what’s not, her favorites include underdog indie flicks. Yet, her primary focus is the ‘bus stop mom’ – women who sit idle in their cars with morning coffee mugs to send their children off to school. They have long trusted Screen Queen’s suggestions on what to see that’s family appropriate for kids, elderly parents, and even date-night with husbands. 

The Screen Queen frequently ventures off her throne to write inspirational and empowerment articles for women’s magazines under her civilian name, Lois Cahall.  www.loiscahall.com  Her articles have appeared in Hearst magazines (Seventeen, Marie Claire, Redbook) and Conde Nast magazines (SELF, Bon Appetit) as well as Ladies Home JournalMen’s Journal, and Readers Digest. In the UK Cahall writes for Psychologies, RED and The London Times

In 2012 her first novel PLAN C JUST IN CASE (Bloomsbury) soared to #1 on eBooks in the UK, before selling into Italian translation hardcover.  It remained in the top three ‘daily deals’ for the year, before climbing to #1 in America, July 2013, as the Nook Daily Deal.  The book was edited by Simon Beaufoy, who won the Oscar and Golden Globe for Slumdog Millionaire.   Cahall’s second book –  a novella – COURT OF THE MYRTLES  also from Bloomsbury Reader, has been called “A Tuesday’s with Morrie on estrogen” by Ladies Home Journal.  

In 2015 Cahall Founded and remains the Creative Director of the Palm Beach Book Festival.  It is an annual event in Palm Beach County Florida, that brings in NY Times best-selling authors and household name celebrities to discuss their novels, memoirs, or books to film.  In 2016 an Oprah Book Club Panel was added, headed by Leigh Haber, Oprah’s book editor.  James Patterson is the Festival’s Honorary Chairman. 

When not in Manhattan or Palm Beach, Screen Queen can be found in Europe – mainly London or Paris – where she escapes (usually by horse-drawn carriage) to frolic and cavort with fellow royalty. Wink.  

Red Carpet toes & Louboutin shoes

In July 2016, Screen Queen introduced guest critic, Steve Leibowitz  ’The Movie Knight’,  for occasional print reviews.  Lebowitz has been the West Palm Beach & Miami Movie Examiner for several years.
