    Authors Supporting Authors with Mary Ellen Danuser

    in Self Help

    Show airs at 8:00 pm EST/AST; 7:00 pm CST; 6:00 pm MST; and 5:00 pm PST.


    Mary Ellen Danuser book, Freedom to Choose, sheds light as to why some people choose to date and marry outside their race.She believes that issues on interracial relationships are not fairly understood in today's society, partly attributed to the lack of public awareness on the subject. In turn it is the result of scarcely documented literature deeply addressing the case from the rare personal viewpoint. With this in mind, she wrote Freedom to Choose - Is Skin Color Really an Issue?” a compilation of true stories from interracially married couples all over the US, including the author’s real-life experiences.


    The book mainly tells the story of Mary Ellen and her spouse, John Dakota, a retired Marine officer and commercial pilot, interpolated with the narratives of the couples she has interviewed. It offers a rare look into the lives of these couples, revealing insights as to the rationales why some people choose their mates outside their race - a portrait of motive, intent, and personal choice. The real names of the pairs are withheld but the experiences shared are authentic and real.


    Mary Ellen, who served in the US Army as a medical specialist and an Army recruiter, is a retired insurance professional. With her husband she enjoys traveling, attending car races, dining out, outdoor concerts, reading, walking, sightseeing, and just hanging out with each other. Mary Ellen, born in Springfield, Illinois, grew up in Vandalia, Missouri. Because her passion since her retirement is writing non-fiction books, she is working on her second non-fiction book.

    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.

    Suspense, crime fiction author Earl Javorsky (Dan Howard) LIVE on Authors

    in Books

    “Earl Javorsky's bold and unusual DOWN SOLO blends the mysterious and the supernatural boldly and successfully. The novel is strong and haunting, a wonderful debut.”  – T. Jefferson Parker, New York Times bestselling author of FULL MEASURE and THE FAMOUS AND THE DEAD.


    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes suspense and crime fiction writer Earl Javorsky (also known as Dan Howard).  I have to agree with Jeff Parker and say that Dan's books are powerfully intense and immeasurably enjoyable. Here is a little more about "Earl" (and he promises to explain the pen name). " I was born in Berlin and emigrated to the US when I was two. My father had been an aerial photographer under Rommel in North Africa and worked as a cinematographer in NYC. My mother remarried when I was five and we were off to Hollywood, where my step-father had a contract with Paramount. Oddly, he had been a lieutenant in the US Navy off the coast of Italy.   I was a weird kid and made the appropriate adjustments.  After a long stint trying to make it as a musician in LA and clawing my way up to mid-level management in the chemical entertainment industry (just about killed me), I went back to my first love: writing. I had the good fortune to run into Lou Aronica, my editor at The Story Plant. I work as a proofreader/edito"r (www.theproofreader.org).

    Ruth Cardello joins The Librarian, LIVE, on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    THE LIBRARIAN host, Tabatha Pope, welcomes romance author, Ruth Cardello to Authors on the Air.


    Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York–then came full circle and moved back to Rhode Island. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.


    She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. Ruth writes about billionaires and cowboys. Her readers often tell her how much they love the emotional journey her stories provided, from laughter to tears, but always leaving them with a smile.  Ruth calls her big hair, escapist romances "Bathtub Reads".  When she’s not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm, riding her horses, or connecting with her readers online. You can find out more about Ruth and her books, at her website: www.ruthcardello.com.


    Host of "The Librarian", Tabatha Pope, can be found at All For Love of the Word and Facebook.
