    Kenneth Johnson: "The Man of Legends" 
    Award-winning science-fiction mastermind Kenneth Johnson blends epic adventure, romance, and evocative drama into an intense supernatural thriller rooted in one of the great untold legends of human history.
    New York City, New Year’s weekend, 2001. Jillian Guthrie, a troubled young journalist, stumbles onto a tantalizing mystery: the same man, unaged, stands alongside Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, and Gandhi in three different photographs spanning eighty-five years of history.
    In another part of town, Will—an enigmatic thirty-three-year-old of immense charm, wit, and intelligence—looks forward to the new year with hope and trepidation. Haunted by his secret past and shadowed by a dangerous stranger, he finds himself the object of an intense manhunt spearheaded by an ambitious Vatican emissary and an elderly former UN envoy named Hanna.
    During the next forty-eight hours, a catastrophic event unites Will, Jillian, and Hanna—and puts them in the crosshairs of a centuries-old international conspiracy. Together, the three must unravel an ancient curse that stretches back two millennia and beyond, and face a primal evil that threatens their lives and thousands more.

    CUTV News Radio spotlights poet and entrepreneur Betsy Theodore

    in Books

    Salem, OH – When you can use your creativity as a vehicle for healing, the result is empowerment.
    Betsy Theodore is the author of Dance With Your Journey, a collection of inspirational and uplifting poetry and quotes.
    “A self-help poem or quote can give one light for another day,” says Betsy. “Dance With Your Journey is about loving life and truly embracing every moment given to us. Always dance with your journey.”
    Self-published this April, Dance With Your Journey is culled from a lifetime of expression in the face of adversity. Adopted at age 3 by an incredible family, Betsy was only nine years old when she wrote her first quote: “My life is a beautiful note in God’s symphony.”
    “My writing has always been therapeutic for me,” says Betsy. “When I wrote about my feelings, I knew from people’s reaction that it was different for a kid. My book includes poetry I wrote as a child, my poetry in school and my poetry today. It’s basically my journey of learning to be confident as a woman.”
    At 22, Betsy was diagnosed with endometriosis, requiring chemotherapy.
    “I started writing more seriously after my illness,” recalls Betsy. “It changed me completely. Being 22 years old and being told I had this went through a lot of changes at a very young age both emotionally and physically. I started living my life.”
    Inspiring, beautiful and enlightening, poems like “Ocean’s Desire” and “Weary Boots” evoke the sensations of life and remaining present in our gratitude.
    Dance With Your Journey is available on Amazon.

    Title: The True Story of One Family’s Daring Escape to Freedom. The author is: J

    in Books

    How do you live your life knowing that any day you might lose the little bit of freedom that you have been afforded? Some luxuries are so appreciated and many take them for granted but Kati and Adolph Egett did not. What happens when you feel the walls around you closing in and you realize that they have become your own form of prison as you wish for more for your two small children but have yet to figure out how? Looking around her and understanding that many of the families in Hungry have left hoping to find their freedom in other countries, Kati began to realize that it was time for them to leave too. Curfews were in place, food rationing, and other restrictions would make it even more difficult for them to remain there and a plan had to be devised to bring them safely to freedom. Visiting family members the next day brought them some comfort but not sharing their thoughts and realizing the dangers in telling them they wanted to leave helped to keep them all in check and their voices about leaving silent. But, leaving the next morning and realizing their daughter, Judit’s blanket was left behind what happens when Adolph learns that they left without any notice does not anger him but allows him the luxury of thinking maybe they need to follow suit.
    How do you tell you parents that you are leaving and might never see them again? What choice do you have when it’s your children’s safety and life that you are willing to sacrifice it all for? The author will explain her journey to freedom to your host Fran Lewis
