    Authors Supporting Authors with Dion Cheese

    in Self Help

    Urban author, Dion Cheese, an African-American writer, penned Who Am I; The Chronicles of Cain; Explain It To Her Momma; and Caught Slipping.


    Formally a hip-hop recording artist, father, convict, and drug dealer, Dion was born in northern New Jersey, the 7th of 8 siblings. Raised in the inner city section of Plainfield New Jersey, his life was anything but a Norman Rockwell portrait; life was hard, cold and at times cruel. Crime and drug-ridden, Dion avoided the lures of selling drugs and/or using them, coming from a family where everyone had succumb to one or the other. He somehow managed to have the force of will and vision to step outside his world, becoming the first in his family history to go to college to pursue a degree in Chemical  Engineering.


    In his late teens, however, he felt the pull of the large wake his older brother was creating in hip hop music. Robert, A/K/A Dee Jay Cheese, better known as DJ King Kut, by his late teens was already a multi-award winning DJ World Champion, and later an inductee to the DMC Hall of Fame.


    Dion had always been inspired to write, and recorded his first song, “Phenomenal”, through CSI Entertainment in the mid-1980s as a tribute to the older brother’s talents. Two years later he formed Third Street productions and recorded the singles Third Street, Come On Everybody, Kick The Habit, and  Leading The pack — released on Big City Records. He performed live at countless festivals, ands did shows at The Strand Theater in Plainfield New Jersey [headlined by E.M.P.D], and Newark Symphony Hall [headlined by BDP, D-Nice and Poor Righteous Teachers].


    Along with his manager, Bruce T. Dugan, he founded Big City Records and, with the initial release of Third Street, the company established distribution through Schwartz Brothers, one of the largest independent national distributors at that time.

    Authors Supporting Authors with Cortina Jackson

    in Self Help

    Times: 8:00 pm EST & AST now that the clocks have been moved forward 1 hour. This week's author: Cortina Jackson.


    Cortina Jackson is the doting mother of two sons. She received her Master’s degree in Criminal Justice, and has over 15 years of law enforcement experience. With Cortina’s experience and knowledge in law enforcement, she has seen firsthand that, oftentimes, life is scarier than fiction. This has given her a basis for the material in her writing that often seems too detailed to be true. 


    Residing in McKinney, TX, Cortina is working on her second Master’s degree and her next novel. A fiction/nonfiction author and speaker on the subjects of sexual abuse and domestic violence, it is obvious that she is one who cares about others first. She is enthusiastic about sharing her passion for writing with you.


    A brief excerpt from her book with the provocative title, On Earth As It Is in Hell:


    "Hell, a word that not only describes a dark, fiery underworld, but also defines periods in our lives. Thus is the case for the 3 characters, Clara, Nick, and Toni, portrayed in this thriller. 


    The story line follows: Clara, the unbeliever due to God’s lack of intervention; Toni, Clara’s friend; homosexual by nature, faithful friend by design; and Nick, a pastor who endures his own trials."

In the second half of the show we will speak with Sean Sweeney.  And now, a little about Sean: Sean Sweeney's love of reading began in 1988, when he was handed J.R.R. Tolkien's classic The Hobbit, and was given a needed boost with John Grisham novels and the Star Wars Expanded Universe. His passion for writing began in 1993, as a sophomore in high school, when he began writing sports for his local newspaper.  Visit Sean's Amazon page at http://amzn.to/1zawB5o.

    Authors Supporting Authors with K. S. Oliver

    in Self Help

    This week's author: K.S. Oliver, author, poet, public speaker, model, and business owner, was born in New York & raised in Georgia. The oldest of 11 children, Ms Oliver is the mother of 2 boys, Sha’Kwan and K’Shaun.


    The author of 2 poetry books: Still Standing and Affectionately 360, her first novel, Flatlined: Almost Doesn't Count,  was released on the 4th anniversary of her diagnosis. Deciding to take a leap of faith and let the world read her rhymes of reason after several people encouraged her to share it with others in hopes to inspire. She is glad that she did.


    On May 20, 2010, after the birth of her youngest son, Ms. Oliver was diagnosed with Lupus. Subsequently, she was also diagnosed with Skin Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Hypotension, Hypothyroids, Cricoarytenoiditis (Lupus in her voice box), and Severe depression.


    Ms. Oliver has been cut, poked, and jabbed more than a multitude of times. She was hospitalized so many times that she's on a first-name basis with the ER staff. She has had more x-rays, CT scans, surgeries, and blood work performed than she can count, but she is still standing.


    In the past 3 years her medical records have grown as thick as a how-to manual. She has stayed home in bed for weeks at a time in tears. She had a unexplainable sore throat for over a year. But God’s amazing grace has spared her life, and despite her adversities, she is still standing.
