Welcome to The Screen Queen
Follow me on twitter:  LoCahall
and become a fan on Facebook: Screen Queen and/or Lois Cahall author
Author,  Film critic, cultural critic, lover of all things French and the occasional Muse…not necessarily in that order;  Mother of 2 daughters, cousin of 1 Iron Chef, Geoffrey Zakarian, and very proud to be an American. 

Screen Queen’s column began 22 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, including her flagship station (on Thursday mornings) WZID in Manchester, New Hampshire, with Mikey in the Morning. Since the late 1990s, she has been a guest on Ron St. Pierre’s morning show at WPRO in Providence, Rhode Island.

While The Screen Queen spends most of her time in darkened theaters to see what’s 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 TimesIn 2012 her first novel PLAN C JUST IN CASE (Bloomsbury) soared to #1 on eBooks in the UK, and 2 in Germany before selling into Italian translation. It remained in the top three ‘daily deals’ for the year, before climbing to number one in America, July 2013, as the Nook Daily Deal.  Cahall’s second book –  a novella – COURT OF THE MYRTLES released Mother’s Day weekend 2013 also from Bloomsbury Reader.  It has garnished an average of 4 and 5 star reviews.  

Cahall has appeared on numerous Television shows and was the anchor for ABC TV news “Top Priority” and an occasional host on Good Morning America Now.

When not in Manhattan, 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.

Red Carpet toes & Louboutin shoes

Okay, but seriously…aside from all that Queen playing, she’s just a ‘Lady in Waiting’ – waiting, that is on her family, and all those issues that come with two grown daughters. Screen Queen is just a mom and girl next door – the kind of woman you’d share a cup of coffee. Avec un peu de lait mais pas de sucre. A little cream, no sugar. J’aime la France! 

As of July 2016, Screen Queen introduced her second string/guest critic, Steve Lebowitz, for print reviews.   He is proud to join the kingdom and be dubbed ‘The Movie Knight.’  Like The Screen Queen, his reviews will  be picked up on MRQE (Movie Review Query Engine) worldwide.  

Lebowitz has been the West Palm Beach & Miami Movie Examiner for over seven years and has recently become a member of the Florida Film Critic’s Circle.
