Michigan Literary Network Blogtalk Radio~ June 19, 2013

Michael HamlinIt’s Wednesday again Motown Writers Network! Tune in today on the Michigan Literary Network’s blogtalk radio show as Sylvia Hubbard interviews Michael Hamlin at 5:30pm. Michael Hamlin is the author of “A Black Revolutionary’s Life in Labor: Black Workers Power in Detroit.” Mr. Hamlin describes his role in the 1960’s and early 1970’s when black assembly line workers shut down Chrysler Detroit’s Dodge Main and Eldon Road auto plants to protest racial discrimination, safety violations and poor working conditions. The actions spawned a national revolutionary union movement built on black workers power.

Don’t miss Bill Anderson at 5:45pm as Sylvia talks with him about his book  “The Glory Years of the Detroit Tigers.” As rich as the history of the Detroit Tigers has been, there have been few great books written on their history. The Glory Years of the Detroit Tigers: 1920-1950 deserves to join Richard Bak’s Cobb Would Have Caught It and The Detroit Tigers Reader by Tom Stanton among the best written on the subject.The Glory

Michigan Literary Network Blog talk radio-June 5, 2013

The Mayonnaise MurdersIt’s Wednesday again!  Don’t forget to listen in today at 5:30pm on the Michigan Literary Network blog talk radio show. Sylvia Hubbard will interview Keith Owens author of “The Mayonnaise Murders,”  Check Keith out at www.keithowens.com and on twitter @kaoblues.

 

 

 

 

Keith OwensKeith’s Bio:

My nearly 30-year background as a writer includes time spent as a columnist/reporter and/or editor for Detroit’s Metro Times, the Michigan Chronicle, the Detroit Free Press, the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel, and other newspapers including the Denver Post and the Los Angeles Times. I was also a nationally syndicated columnist with Universal Press Syndicate for three years beginning in 1993. My two-part, 11,000 word article for Detroit’s Metro Times on the history of the blues in Detroit entitled “Boogie Chillun” earned recognition from the Alternative Newsweekly Awards and also from the Detroit Chapter of the Society for Professional Journalists. I am currently a regular contributor to the progressive political blogs PoliticusUSA and Jack and Jill Politics.

But fiction was my first love long before I became involved in journalism.

One of my mother’s most cherished pictures is the one of me at age two or three, standing up on tippy toe in my underwear trying to reach the keys of an old black typewriter perched on the edge of a table. One hand was outstretched upward, as I looked back over my shoulder at the camera, apparently just becoming aware that my picture was being taken.

I have no idea what my fascination was all about at the time, Naturally I’d like to think I had the Great American Novel pent up inside me and I just had to get that story told. Because even at that young age I obviously knew my destiny, and the typewriter was my chariot that would transport me from that small orange brick house on Milwaukee Street in Denver, Colorado to riches and fame.

Then again, maybe the keys were nice and shiny and I was just reaching upward like any curious kid to try and get my hands on the shiny thing just out of my reach. And my mother, like most mothers, had her camera nearby on the ready for any and all cute baby shots, and she realized this one was a keeper. Then she quickly snatched me away before I pulled the bright shiny typewriter down on top of my little baby head.

Like I said, I have no idea what my fascination was all about at the time. But that picture has stayed with me throughout the years as my true fascination with words and stories has evolved into a passion that has all but consumed me. Writing is not what I do, it’s who I am. Whether I’m writing op-ed columns, political blogs, children’s stories, or science fiction murder mysteries ( all of which I have done, by the way), it doesn’t matter so long as it gives me a chance to feed the beast. Doesn’t matter if it’s a brief few grafs, or a lengthier passage requiring research and other deep and time-consuming stuff.

So long as words are involved, and I can tell a story, then the beast will let me rest another day.
