New #MichLit Radio Show w/children’s authors: @superdaddieslit & @MarquinParks #mwn [PODCAST]

LISTEN TO OUR PODCAST NOW http://tobtr.com/s/4266455

Feb 13, 2013 Guest Backgrounder

1. Guest:  Anita Gibbs               www.superdaddiestheseries.com

Guest summary: Anita Gibbs is the author of two children’s books, “Daddy, I Broke My Snowball” and “Daddy, I Can Read It For You.” Her newest book is “Daddy’s Magic Stamp” part of her Super Daddy’s series. Anita’s definition of a SUPERDADDY (noun, plural – dies) 1. Any man who makes a deliberate attempt to enrich the life of a child, especially his own.  

 

Author bio:

Anita T. Gibbs is a seasoned sales professional who was raised to believe in herself and her dreams.  Inspired by her own father as well as raising her son as a single mom, the creator of “Superdaddies The Series™”, aspires to create a positive perception and motivation in the relationships between fathers and their children in this children’s book series.

 

Her freshman release in Nov. 2009, “Daddy, I broke My Snowball” was well received, as illustrated by the following editorial comment:

 

In times such as these, we need reminders about the fact that “quality” men and fathers do, indeed, exist and how they provide security, love and reassurance to their children. “Daddy, I Broke My Snowball” reminds us of the vast influence that committed fathers provide for their children, ESPECIALLY girls, as is depicted in this heart-warming story. Such simple things as building a “snow-woman” provide unique opportunities to bond and reinforce the sacredness of fatherhood; this is a touching example of how empowerment and self-esteem is cultivated in both boys and girls.

–Dr. Kathy A. Morrow, Clinical Psychologist

 The sophomore offering, “Daddy, I Can Read It For You,” is the story of a middle aged divorced father of two who has a very “special” relationship with his gifted son and precocious ‘tween’ daughter.  This Superdaddy only attended school through the eighth grade.  He values healthy eating and the family’s favorite but healthy guilty pleasure happens to be sweet potatoes.

LISTEN TO PODCAST http://tobtr.com/s/4266455

About the book Daddy’s Magic Stamp:

Daddy’s Magic Stamp is a PreK-2 children’s book about a dog and his twin puppies. They can’t hide from Daddy Dog!

2. Guest:  Marquin Parks        http://www.wrinkleswallace.blogspot.com    

Guest summary: Marquin Parks is an educator, consultant, interventionist, and author of the new book “Wrinkles Wallace: Knights of Night School”.

Author bio:  Marquin’s goal is to inspire, motivate, and promote writing and reading to a larger audience. Honestly, he just wants to write and write and write and write (yeah, that much writing) books that humor and help kids.

About Wrinkles Wallace: Knights of Night School

Follow the zany adventures of Wrinkles Wallace and his classmates who have to come together as a team to outsmart their teacher and pass 5th Grade. After all, they’ve failed it a number of times–so many that Wrinkles is already 28-years old. The students deal with real-world issues and themselves in order to overcome the antics of their diabolical teacher, Mr. Sittin’ B. Quiet. (By the way, he’s only ten.) Join them in this upside-down world where non-stop humor serves as a guide to character-building and success.

May 23, 2012 Guest Backgrounder
1.  Guest: Antoinette Davis              Call-in Time:  5:30 p.m.
Antoinette Davis bio:
ANTOINETTE MARIE DAVIS is a native of Michigan. In addition to writing, she loves math, which led her to pursue a career in mathematics. She enjoys teaching mathematics to her students.

She has earned an Associate of Arts Degree in Secondary Education, a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics, and a Master of Arts Degree in Applied Mathematics. She currently serves as a university instructor while she pursues Doctoral study in the area of Instruction/Administration with a specialization in Mathematics Education.
About the book  Lessons on Church Folk Volume 1 & 2:
Lessons on Church Folk is a two book series. Volume 1 was written so that people are able to see that every church has issues. Even when you switch churches, you will see some of the same issues that you saw at your previous church. In any event, the church is a hospital where people come to get help for their issues. Only God can free us from the things that constantly stress us out. Life will be stressful but giving your stress over to God will allow you to be free to experience the love and happiness that he desires for all of his children.
Volume 2 was written so that people can see that church members of any faith are the most unique group of people around. These members come to church with various issues and they aim to let go of their issues through prayer within the community of believers. But the question is: Do they hand their issues over to God? or Do they hold on to them so that they can handle them on their own? In life, it is always better to hand over your issues to God because you cannot handle your issues on your own. Overall, we need to accept the fact that we are humans and we all make mistakes. But even when we make mistakes, we have to know that God is always ready and willing to forgive us of our sins.

2.  Guest: Felicia Berry              Call-in Time:  5:45 p.m.
Guest summary: A survivor. A victor. A living testament of grace. Felecia Berry LMSW shares what she went through to become all three in her poignant memoir The Desires Of Thine Heart.
Felicia Berry bio:
Felecia Berry LMSW earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Marygrove College and her Masters Degree in Social Work from Wayne State University. As an undergraduate student intern, Felecia implemented Hamtramck Harvest, a feeding program, in the city of Hamtramck.

She has provided trainings in schools, conferences, churches and community mental health agencies.
About the Book, The Desires of Thine Heart:  
In The Desires of Thine Heart ,Felecia is brave in her honesty to share what proves to be the darkest and most painful part of her life. She was exposed to insufferable hardships at a very young age: she lost her father when she was only three years old and, at nine, she lost her innocence forever when she became a victim of sexual abuse by a brother of a classmate. Very soon her life spiraled into a cesspool of drugs, alcohol, abusive relationships and suicide attempts- all desperate but futile efforts to disavow her pain.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!! ENJOY!!!!:)

 Listen to the show now! Click Here!

Jan. 4, 2012 Guest Backgrounder

1.  Guest:         Bianca Eugene                                 www.theloveconnection2.blogspot.com                                        

Guest summary:

Bianca L. Eugene was born in Detroit, Michigan. She studied journalism at Wayne State University. She has written for several publications including The Southfield Observer and Eccentric and Wayne State University’s student newspaper, The South End.

Between raising a child on her own, maintaining a relationship with her daughter’s father and trying to focus on her career she is dangerously burning the candle at both ends. Without notice, tragedy strikes. A lover from her past returns with promises of a new beginning. But will promises be enough to secure a happy ending?

2. Guest:         Deolis Allen                      

http://bookstore.authorhouse.com/Products/SKU-000377825/World-Orphan-Presents-Children-of-the-Residue.aspx

Guest summary: Deolis Allen is the author of three books, The Last 48, Test of Love and his most recent book, World Orphan Presents: Children of the Residue.

About the book World Orphan Presents: Children of the Residue:

Children of the Residue is a fiction based on actual people used to capture the tragedy of broken homes effects on whole communities. The broken home is stimulated from failed relationships, drugs and economic disparity. In turn the children of the home seek love and strength in all the wrong places. Through their travels they learn contempt for the world.

This read is a sharp blade journeying through the forgotten pockets of America’s ghetto. Set in the 1990s of Detroit’s west side, the reader will learn the effects of the crack epidemic from both sides of the fence. The fictional adolescents in this novel are only mirror glimpses into today’s adults. This novel illustrates the subtle decay of morals, transformation of values and ill imprisoned thought processes that made us what we are.

Corzell is a child nurtured by abandonment, rape and hate. Corzell’s naturally good heart becomes poisoned by the conditions of the ghetto norms and society’s iron handed justice. Power in Corzell’s mind is perversely realized when he successfully pulls his first breaking and entering. Corzell graduates to dope dealing, drug trafficking and armed robbery.

Book 2 illustrates how young men, especially, evolve from being junior high boyfriends to high school predators (players). This piece shows the vulnerability and insensitivity in women that many men overlook in their immaturity. Book 2 demonstrates how the high school hallways for education become arenas of conquest.

While Antwaun Bishop learns his art of manipulation and seduction from his big shot lawyer father, Sharon Stuard’s home is off balance and marred in tragedy. These two children find one another and compliment their loneliness. Neither of them ever reach an understanding of the feeling they believe is love.

1. Guest: Bonnie Jo Campbell  www.bonniejocampbell.com

Guest summary: Our first guest is award winning author Bonnie Jo Campbell. Her work includes Women and Other Animals, a short fiction collection, a novel Q Road, and another short fiction collection American Salvage.
Bonnie Jo Campbell bio:
Bonnie Jo Campbell grew up on a small Michigan farm with her mother and four siblings in a house her grandfather Herlihy built in the shape of an H. She learned to castrate small pigs, milk Jersey cows, and, when she was snowed in with chocolate, butter, and vanilla, to make remarkable chocolate candy. When she left home for the University of Chicago to study philosophy, her mother rented out her room. She has since hitchhiked across the U.S. and Canada, scaled the Swiss alps on her bicycle, and traveled with the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus selling snow cones. As president of Goulash Tours Inc., she has organized and led adventure tours in Russia and the Baltics, and all the way south to Romania and Bulgaria.
Her collection Women and Other Animals details the lives of extraordinary females in rural and small town Michigan, and it won the AWP prize for short fiction; her story “The Smallest Man in the World” has been awarded a Pushcart Prize. Her novel Q Road investigates the lives of a rural community where development pressures are bringing unwelcome change in the character of the land. Her critically-acclaimed short fiction collection American Salvage, which consists of fourteen lush and rowdy stories of folks who are struggling to make sense of the twenty-first century, was a finalist for the 2009 National Book Award in Fiction.
For decades, Campbell has put together a personal newsletter – The Letter Parade – and she currently practices Koburyu kobudo weapons training. She has received her M.A. in mathematics and her M.F.A. in writing from Western Michigan University. She now lives with her husband and other animals outside Kalamazoo, and she teaches writing in the low residency program at Pacific University.
