    Laura Enright
    I was raised in Harwood Heights, Ill., a suburb bordering Chicago, growing up across the parking lot from the neighborhood tavern that my grandfather built in the 1930s. I’m all over the map when it comes to what I like in literature, music, TV and movies, but I do tend to veer toward some more than others. In short, I'm interested in any number of things, far too many for my limited free time to accommodate. As a writer I tend to stay in the fantasy and science fiction genres (adding liberal doses of humor when needed) but I’m willing to try my hand at anything, which, curiously enough, led to my three books I’ve published.
    Laura's book:
    To Touch the Sun

  • The Author Chat Show with Lynda D. Brown

    in Books

    Meet author/Pastor  Jermaine Gadson. Pastor Gadson will be chatting with me about his book, Tactics, Trends & Traits of the Enemy: Equipping the Believer to Fight Back.
    About the book:
    This book is a "practical guide" to overcoming struggles that people face in everyday life that may not be easily recognized as spiritual in nature. Many people wrestle with unnecessary heartache, pain, temptations, and depression without knowing the true source of their dilemma. Unlike other books on spiritual warfare, this book takes the spookiness out of the picture, and shows how people experience spiritual battles in subtle things that are presented to them in everyday life. The Devil is real.  His tactics are real. But, we need not fear nor be ignorant of his devices.
    About the author:
    Jermaine Gadson is the Senior Pastor of Faith Ministries, Inc., a non-traditional church located in Birmingham, AL. Prior to starting Faith Ministries, he served as an associate minister, youth minister, and pastor for local churches and ministries in the greater Birmingham area.  While, growing up in the Baptist church, he gave his life to Christ at an early age, and is a third generation minister of the Gospel.
    He holds a B.A. in Religion with a Concentration in Congregational Studies and a Minor in Classics from Samford University, and a Master of Divinity from Beeson Divinity School of Samford University.  He is currently a Doctor of Ministry student at Beeson Divinity School. 
    He enjoys reading, writing, sports, outdoors, movies, and spending time with his family. He is happily married to his wife Kristy and they have one beautiful daughter, Khloe.

  • SWAG Radio Presents: Authoress Miz T

    in Books

    This evening we will be talking with Authoress Miz T. 
    About the Author
    Teresa Mason Browning is a woman of true insight and a lively spirit.  She is the author of two bestselling novels, “Why I Kept My Past A Secret” and “Now That The Secrets Are Out” and has traveled many places as a motivational speaker. Her latest releases, “Living Free of the Secrets” and “A Black Man’s Pain”, are soon to become national best sellers as well.  Teresa was born in Oklahoma, but was raised in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area. She now resides in South Carolina with her significant other that helps keep her the jovial woman she is today.
    From the Author
    What I enjoy most as a writer is the joy that others receive from reading my novels.
    I had to learn the business of becoming a writer from the ground up.  I have gone through some scrapes and bruises but found that if you keep God first you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. The words “No” or “Can't” have never been an option for me.
    I first discovered my passion for writing at the early age of 13.  I would sit alone and write for hours about my thoughts, dreams and the people around me.  I wrote in my private journal every day.  After many years had passed I decided to take my journals and put my thoughts in book form.
    As a self-published author, I actually didn't start putting my work together for a novel until my children were in there last few years of high school, so it was very easy to find time to capture my thoughts.  My children were very supportive in my goal of becoming a writer.

    About the ministry:
    Tragedy struck Bradley and his wife  on March 10, 2014 when in the 5th month of Quiana’s, Bradley's wife, first pregnancy, her cervix opened unexpectedly and their son Nehemiah was born prematurely at home and died. The most devastating experience of this powerful couple’s life, they have chosen to press forward, with broken hearts, and honor Nehemiah’s legacy by telling others that in their darkest hour, Jesus is still faithful and not the cause, but the solution to any heartache. The couple went as far as to share their testimony on social media via a You Tube video only weeks after their son’s death; about their process of healing and full details of the events surrounding Nehemiah’s death to encourage other people that have experienced a similar tragedy.

    In love with writing a chilling murder mystery, B. Berry is the author of several books across genres including that which brings American history into the mix reminiscent of a good book by any black author at  large in years past   Sometimes writing under the name Barbara Grovner, B. Berry has written a peculiar novel set in the time of the Black Movement of the 1960's, Clothesline Blues. Bloody Sunday is the backdrop of this book as two women quietly riot in their own movement in their backyard. In her books, Barbara Grovner takes a whole lot of plot and turns it into its own diversity campaign for better characters and storylines that don't blend in added with some cold twists. This Florida author is trying everything possible in her writing for a job lauded as well done in the literary community. B. Berry's book Cold Crazy is the first in the Cold series.

  • Adrienne Thompson Awesome Author and Storyteller

    in Books

    Married at sixteen, a mother twice by seventeen, and thrice a mother and divorced by twenty-four, Adrienne Thompson is no stranger to adversity. Not your typical teenage mother, she went on to complete her college degree and to earn her nursing license. She attributes God's faithfulness as the catalyst for her success in life. Now, having raised two children as a divorced mother, with a third fast-approaching adulthood, she is sharing a long hidden talent and passion with the world. Using the lessons that life has so expertly taught her as a guideline (betrayal, abusive relationships, self-esteem issues, witnessing the deteriorating effects of drug abuse), she has created stories that will both entertain and inspire the reader.
    Adrienne currently resides in Arkansas with her daughter. Formerly an RN, she now writes and publishes her stories full time. She is a also a motivational speaker.

Now, seemingly stuck in marital limbo, she finally decides to move on with her life only to find herself face-to-face with a monster. As her life begins to crumble, she wonders if things will ever get better. Will Carla be able to find healing and eventually, love?  This is a follow-up to the international best-selling novel, Your Love Is King.
