    A Book and a Chat with Halli Lilburn

    in Books

    Halli was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. She currently resides on a small farm somewhere in southern Alberta with her mountain man husband and three genius children. She enjoys painting, singing, sewing and working at the local library.
    Halli Lilburn always dreamed of being a published author and SHIFTERS is her first novel.
    Reality shifting could destroy Lina's life—or help her overthrow a government conspiracy…

    While coping with classes and crushes at an elite private school that has a 'big brother' approach to surveillance and implants strange I.D. tags under each student's skin, Lina Pawlak discovers that students are disappearing. A government agency, Special Force, is creating a superior race of humans by weeding out those with “corrupt” DNA.

    Lina yearns to be a normal teenage girl, though she's anything but "normal." She's a shifter, and her realities are about to multiply. Shifting from one reality to the next, she clings to sanity, tries to prevent a mass genocide and deals with a reoccurring dilemma—she can’t save everyone in every reality.

    TRAILBLAZING JOURNALIST & AUTHOR GAIL SHEEHY

    in Entertainment

    The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds brings you a conversation with trailblazing journalist Gail Sheehy, the New York Times bestselling author of PASSSAGES who is out with her new autobiography DARING: MY PASSAGES.


    Gail Sheehy’s 1976 book PASSAGES had an exciting idea at its core: adulthood is dotted with predictable turning points. Now, after more than 45 years interviewing women and men about their lives, the journalist and best-selling author has turned the lens on herself. Her new memoir, DARING: MY PASSAGES reflects on her career as a trailblazing female journalist in the ’60s, a mother determined to balance work and family, and a caregiver to an ailing husband. Reflecting on desire, ambition, and wanting it all - career, love, children, friends, social significance - and coming to terms with waiting until midlife to achieve it all, Sheehy’s memoir is filled with candor and humor and describes her early failures; the pain of betrayal in a first marriage; her struggles as a single mother; the flings of an ardent, liberated young woman; the vertigo of becoming an internationally bestselling author; her adoption of a second daughter from a refugee camp; the emotional account of her tempestuous relationship with her mentor, her friend, her lover, her husband the founder of New York Magazine Clay Felker, and her ongoing passion for life, work and love. DARING: MY PASSAGES is a testament to guts, resilience, and smarts, and offers a bold perspective on all of life's passages and the daring that’s gotten Gail Sheehy through it all.
