    As a confidant of the Queen, knighted for his service, Sir Robert Winchell had grown accustomed to powerful people seeking his counsel. So he was not surprised when the United States government asked him to investigate the death of  Tyler Jefferson, president of the United States. Sir Robert’s investigative and diplomatic skills were put to the test as he retraced the final days of the president—meeting with and investigating heads of foreign governments, and ultimately putting his own life in peril.

  • Author B.R. Stateham Down With Us

    in Books

    B.R. Stateham will be sixty-nine years old in May. Supposedly, people creeping up to that age are thinking about retiring. But for B.R. it's not going to happen. As a nine year old kid he wrote his first novel on lined paper,using lots and lots of pencils and their erasers. At 20 he sold his first novel to DAW Science-Fiction, and thought at the time he was about to journey on a long career being a middle of the road Sci-Fi writer. Ah, but the finicky gods had other plans. Over the years he has delved into self-publishing novels and collections of short stories. Currently he has hardcore dark noir novellas out with up-and-coming Indie houses such as Fahrenheit13 and Near To The Knuckle. He's also found a home with Britain's Endeavour Press, a dynamic new name in the ebook publishing field, with the re-release of his Turner Hahn/Frank Morales police-detective novels.  Endeavour is also publishing his new series, featuring a 1st Century Roman detective by the name of Decimus Julius Virilis.
    The writing game is nothing but an odds-very-much-stacked-against-you throw of the dice. But B.R. Stateham has no plans in throwing in the towel and walking away.

  • Sizzlin with Sensuality with Deborahlee and my co-host A P Taylor

    in Poetry

    Sensuality is in the aroma of your morning coffee, the flavor as it tickles taste buds, and in the feel of your body as it courses inside... oh, smells so good, come taste sensuality.
    Find it, find your sensual voice. Whisper with wishes for romance, scream with desire, love and longing. Find it in words;
    In the bold aroma of freshly brewed coffee beans, the crispy taste of sizzling bacon as the flavor delights your tongue...
    in the feel of a kiss as lips brush, tongues tangle and mouths feast, and in the magic of eyes locking across a crowded room... find it in the beauty of nature, so full of sights, smells and sounds it caresses the senses... Find it...
    Sensuality is everywhere, touch it, taste it, feel it. In poetry we can do anything, be anything; come express yourself. 
    Dip your quill inside the inkwell of endless possibilities and show me your sensuality, paint me a picture with your words.
    Close your eyes, inhale, feel, breathe.. write on

  • Talking Pictures: Advanced Review of Backstabbing for Beginners (Ben Kingsley)

    Synopsis: Played by Theo James (Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant) plays: A young program coordinator at the United Nations stumbles upon a conspiracy involving Iraq's oil reserves.
    This gripping, scary and wonderful piece of truthful cinema takes a scary look at the "real" Oil situation in Iraq and the U.S. circa 2002. The film is an odd yin-yang, wonderfully-haunting. Theo James best, Ben Kingsley is Ben Kingsley!

  • CUTV News Radio spotlights children’s author Patti Gill

    in Books

    Royersford, PA – Patti Gill is an educational consultant and the author of Paddy’s Forest Trek, the first in a series of non-fiction children’s books.
    “We can teach children how to identify the main ideas, supporting details, response writing. But if they don't have an essential background knowledge about core content for science and social studies, they're never going to become a true proficient reader.
    Paddy’s Forest Trek focuses on plants and plant growth: science material taught in the early grades. Gill uses essential vocabulary words and concepts kids are expected to know to create simple content that mass audiences can enjoy.
    “I just kind of put myself in the position of being an educator. I have to get this content across in 32 pages in picture format—how could I best do it? So I just mapped it out. The hardest part was incorporating the academic vocabulary that's required while developing the content at the same time.
    But the content was the easy part: How do you capture a child’s attention and imagination? She needed characters and a story: that’s when she came up with Paddy and Rab.
    “Paddy and Rab are buddies and they are going to travel throughout time and across the globe in other books that I'm writing as well.
    “Kids can tell Paddy and Rab have such a great relationship,” says Gill. “They're super cute. Kids are engaging with the characters and the illustrations while absorbing the content and improving their literacy.”
