Tampa Bay, Florida resident Kyrja Withers, a Pagan  and author of the Pagan-themed children’s books reports  that her home was shot at on March 28th.On March 29, shots rang out again damaging her truck.Since then assailiants also set off a cherry bomb or M80 on April 8th. And THEN they threw bottle bombs in her yard on April 15th. The same day as the Boston Bombings.

Det. Greg Williams with the New Port Richey Police Department says the agency is investigating the bottle throwing incident at Kyrja’s home and that he’s also handling the March 28 shooting case.

He said he believes the Withers are being “targeted,” but he doesn’t know the reason. He said he’s heard Withers’ concerns that these may be connected to her faith.

And, of course, there were all the drive-by honkings, the screaming of obscenities, and the prank phone calls.

Kyrja is the author of “Rupert’s Tales,” a growing series of children’s books featuring Rupert the rabbit, who learns about the Wheel of the Year when people come to the forest where he lives to celebrate seasonal holidays.

Tonight we will talk to Kyrja about her work, being the victim of a hate crime and how she copes and contiues to move forward with her life, fearlessly.

We will also be joined by Rupert's Artist,Tonia Bennington,Osborn, whose life-long labor of love has been to explore and express the miracles that make up her world.Her work is displayed internationally at various galleries and private clientele.
