    The Author Chat Show with Lynda D. Brown

    in Books

    Meet author/voice actress Luanna Helena. Luanna will be stopping by the Author Chat show to 'chat' with me about her new book, Party of 1: Single Success


    About the book:


    Party of 1 is a guide, not only to being single, but being a single success. It is centered around three main areas for those who are enjoying single life to focus: Reaching Goals, Enjoying Perks of Single Life, and Relishing Relationships.
    I wrote Party of 1: Single Success, because it is the book that I wish I read as early as 14 years old. Then again, having to go through life without some of the advice contained in this book, gave me the experiences and perspectives that produced much of the insight in Party of 1. I pray that this book will be a wellspring of knowledge, inspiration and motivation for readers to continue or begin their own pursuits of single success.


    About the author:


    LUANNA HELENA is the author of PARTY OF 1: SINGLE SUCCESS. She was born in Antigua and lives in California. Luanna loves using her gift of teaching to help inspire and transform the intellectually underwhelmed into the unapologetically creative.

    The Author Chat Show with Lynda D. Brown

    in Books

    Meet author Gabriella Kovac. She'll be joining me on the Author Chat show to discuss her new book, Georgina: Holocaust Survivor Stories.


    About the book:


    December 1944, whilst heavy snows fall over Budapest and soldiers battle for the streets, Georgina, a young Jewish woman, is nearly starving to death with her newborn son.


    The battle outside is one of the most savage of the entire war. She
    knows that to go into is virtually a death sentence. But she must find food within the next few hours or her baby will certainly die.
    For Georgina there is no choice. Alone and completely vulnerable, she heads out into the freezing cold.


    About the author:


    Gabriella Kovac was born in Hungary, Just after the Second World War had drawn to a close. She lived through the Hungarian uprising against the Communists in 1956, and remembers vividly Russian tanks sitting under her bedroom window. Through the genius of her mother Georgina, their family managed to leave the Communist bloc and come to Australia in 1957. Gabriella is a passionate public speaker, chef (her favourite dish is Hungarian Goulash) and has been very successful in fashion, even authoring the book "Magic Drafting," which can also be found on Amazon. Throughout her life, Gabriella has been inspired by her mother's amazing tenacity, enthusiasm and will to live.
