Joyce Fields started her career as a stenographer at a major utility company in Detroit, working her way up through supervisor of word processing, then as the office manager for an automotive advertising agency, and, lastly, as an executive assistant at a large non-profit health maintenance organization. She is also a professional proofreader (one of her clients was eHarmony, the dating service). She wrote her first book, Line of Serenity (a memoir), in 1997. Being the oldest of seven, in a very happy family, Joyce wanted to capture the way their parents raised them so that the way they did it would not be lost when they all passed on. The book goes from 1944 (the year Joyce was born) through 1977 and includes family recipes and photographs.
Joyce gets her inspiration from living and observing life. In addition to Line of Serenity, she has written eight other books about relationships (The Best Way to Keep a Man is to Let Him Go [among other things]); parenting (Mother's Dozen: An Easy Recipe for Raising GREAT Kids!), which is also available in Spanish; children's fiction (Jette Black and Her Seven Friends); children's non-fiction (THE VISION: Telling Kids That They Can Make the World a Better Place); bullying (Dear Bully: A Collection of Poems about Bullying); the power and simplicity of quotes (My Simple Quotes to Live By); and breast cancer (A Breast Cancer Journey to GREATER Joy! Taking the Fear and Mystery Out of a Breast Cancer Diagnosis).She also wrote three opinion editorials ("Better examples help kids more than political remedies," "The Golden Rule could improve race relations," and "Provide kids with role models, and sell them education,") which were published (verbatim) in The Detroit Free Press.

This is my new show, Tell It Like It Is! You all might remember me as one of the co-hosts of AMC Press - Heather Ray. Well, been playing around with the idea on starting my own radio show and here it is. This first episode is just to basically tell you what this show will be about...what subjects could be touched upon and whatnot. Expect some randomness from time to time!
This first episode will also touch upon a predicament that me and some friends have been facing for a few months now from a 'rival radio show' (even though to us? Yeah...there's really no competition at all...it's all in the eyes of the host of another radio show that sees there's a competition when there's really not.)
So feel free to tun in and state your opinions! Would love to have you all on board!

Nancy Silberkleit of Archie Comic Publications stepped into her role as the Co-CEO of the company in 2009 with the vision that the comic book, as a graphic novel, is a valuable tool for developing literacy among first-time readers and instilling love for reading in everyone. Nancy taught art for over 20 years and has seen the power of comics to encourage literacy and creativity in children. It is a natural progression for children, as a bridge to reading from the picture books of their younger years.
Having recognized that young readers may not have access to comic books, she created the Comic Book Fairs at schools across America and Canada, as an event to ignite an interest in reading. In addition, Nancy has established her own foundation Rise Above Social Issues Foundation, Inc., as a non-profit that addresses challenging social issues, such as childhood obesity and other chronic medical conditions, as well as bullying, discrimination and environmental concerns through comic books. Nancy has also worked to develop comics that promote children’s health, including ‘JD Shapes Up,’ an illustrated manual aiming to reduce childhood obesity.”
An avid and sought-after speaker, Nancy has also spoken at the ‘INK conference in association with TED, 2012’ and the ‘One Globe 2012: Uniting Knowledge Communities’ conference in India, amongst other prestigious events around the world. Nancy has been widely recognized in the media for serving as a unique voice in promoting literacy through the medium of comic books and her transition from an educator to a business leader. She was recently featured in the Indian edition of the Fortune magazine.

Leshundra Robinson co-founded UCAN of Memphis in 2005 & became president in 2006. She also manages the mentee referrals from parents, physicians, medical clinics and Memphis City Schools while serving as a mentor herself. UCAN currently mentors 20 young ladies ages 12-18 primarily in North Memphis.
Leshundra grew up in North Memphis under the guidance of her grandmother, and later moved to the Whitehaven area where she graduated in the Top 10 percent of her class at Hillcrest High School. A mother of three, Leshundra has spent 21 years guiding young lives, which has motivated her to reach out to others who are in the vulnerable teen years. Her own children embrace her energy and ambitious determination. Leshundra wants teens to live a “purposeful life” and to understand that one’s environment does not make a person. Rather, a person can positively influence his or her own environment while reaching beyond neighborhood boundaries. Leshundra’s brother committed suicide in 2011 due to what he felt his environment did not accept him. He felt lonely and hurt which became a long term depression until he was 27 years young. Since his death, Leshundra has started an anti-bully play that helps other teens understand everyone is different and unique, STAND UP and SPEAK OUT against bullying.
Leshundra is Six Sigma Greenbelt certified and a graduate of Mid-South Peace and Justice Center’s Grassroots Organizers for Power. She is a member of the Alliance for Nonprofit Excellence and Memphis Urban League Young Professionals. She was recently nominated for a NEXUS award for Mentoring Organization/Nonprofit in the same category as Leadership Memphis and Memphis Grizzles.
