Allen Klein, author of Having the Time of Your Life: Little Lessons to Live By will be with us today to share his spark and humor on discussing many reasons people answer to 'What is Life' in so many glorious ways. Allen has 500 quotes to help us think about using few words to define something that has taken millions of years to answer but who does have the answers to 'why are we here'.
Are you searching for the answer so that you can check that off your bucket list? Are you asking everyone you meet what their answer is so you can compare it to your deepest darkest thoughts which you will probably never share in this lifetime? Does love, life, and our journey ever really have a definition? Perhaps that is why so many are always searching and never feeling fullfilled. Maybe, just maybe, there is no answer, this is an experience in loving and learning, ahh.

Host Cyrus Webb welcomes back bestselling author Allen Klein to Conversations LIVE to discuss his newest book HAVING THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE.
Imagine if you will that everything you thought you knew about vampires is largely a ruse created by vampires to hide their true identity and nature from humans.
What if their true nature was that of natural creatures of skin, flesh and bone, and not some undead demon but is rather the top predator created by God?
Starting with the novel AThe Dancing Valkyrie,@ continuing with the AVampire Valkyrie@ and now with AAnd God Created Vampires@ their true and often human like nature continues in the story of Mary Hoffman, aka Erica, who first became a vampire in AThe Dancing Valkyrie@ when seduced by a beautiful female vampire of the 1400's while on a hike in the remote Adirondack woods of northern New York State.
Enter the world of Mary the vampire where sex is the tool she often uses to seduce her prey and obtain the blood she needs. This is a world of violence and sex unrestrained by human morality. Yet it is also a world of love and responsibility towards both the vampires and humans Mary comes to love as she finds herself entangled with humans she tries to protect from the mob, the FBI, CIA and vampires who want her dead.
Pete reads from the first chapter in his book, The Vampire Valkyrie.
The vampire novel "The Vampire Valkyrie" takes off where "The Dancing Valkyrie" concluded and resumes the tale of a young female vampire who just may be the most dangerous vampire in vampire fiction to date.
A vampire like no other, "The Vampire Valkyrie" continues the tale of the vampire Mary Hoffman, aka Erica, the Dancing Valkyrie, who fights to protect her erotic dance club and her girls from mobsters who want to control her and her club - or kill her if she resists.
A Schenectady City Councilwoman wants to pass legislation to close down or strictly limit the operation of adult businesses, an a upstate crime boss wants control of Mary and her club and a New York City crime family seeks to discredit the upstate crime boss through Mary and her club. Many people die, both the innocent and the guilty, as a result of Mary's determination to save herself, her girls and her club, while wondering if she should stop being involved with humans and just kill all who infringe upon her freedom as a vampire.
Allbooks Review (www.allbookreviews.com) reviewer Bob Medak says, "Mary might be an avenging angel from God; or she might be something else. Follow the story of Mary as she comes to terms with being a vampire and her role in the life of humans and vampires that walk among us in this tail, while appearing as much human as any other human. I would recommend this book as a good read, especially for those that read vampire stories. You will be pleasantly surprised by Mary and her friends. This is an above average book and should be on your reading list. If eroticism is not to your liking, there may be parts of this story that are not for you."
