    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.

    Jennifer Bernard LIVE - ALL OF ME & the Hot Fireman series on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes USAT best-selling author Jennifer Bernard.  Jennifer is the author of the HOT FIREMAN series and the new sexy contemporary romance book ALL OF ME.  Jennifer says this:  "It took me a while to find my true love, both personally and professionally. I grew up in a crazy, chaotic family of six. My father was a professor, my mother a poet, and neither could understand my love for romance novels. I started reading early, inhaling Nora Roberts, Victoria Holt, Georgette Heyer, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, along with Shakespeare and Anais Nin thrown in for variety. I graduated from Harvard University with a degree in History and Literature. I wanted to major in Creative Writing, but those students were supercool and I confess I was a geek. I knew I had to write. After college I worked for Macmillan Publishing in New York, where I wrote copy for yearly encyclopedia updates. Yes, it was writing, but I wanted to try something different. The something different turned out to be living on a fishing island in Maine. To fill the long winter nights, I began writing screenplays with my college roommate. And so my quirky career began."   http://jenniferbernard.net.  THIS IS A LIVE INTERVIEW - CALL 347-633-9609 TO JOIN US.

    Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. founder Scott Barnett is LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Written in a cinematic style, Gumption is about the creation, growth, and sale of the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. The concept began when Paramount Pictures reached out to see if there was interest in creating a restaurant based on the movie Forrest Gump. It is also the personal story of the author’s growth as a CEO and creator of restaurant concepts. A host of situations are described such as restaurant concept creation, high stakes boardroom confrontations, and escaping corrupt officials in foreign lands. The narrative is partly an unvarnished peak behind the everyday scenes of restaurants, movie studios, and Wall Street. There is also an almost step-by-step recounting of how the Bubba Gump concept and others were created and operated.  Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcome the founder of the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company Scott Barnett who is here LIVE to talk about his book Gumption.

    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."
