    Meet author Norma Yeager. Norma will be chatting with me about her book, Breaking Down the Walls: 50 Courageous and Successful Years


    About the book:


    Young women in the 21st century have choices. They can marry or not; the doors of educational institutions and industry are wide open to them. They can do and be whatever they choose. But to keep moving forward, it is important to understand from where we have come. And Norma Yaeger's story helps put it is perspective. Like most young women in the 1950's, Norma Yaeger married young, had children, and depended on her husband to support their families. Unlike most women of the times, when things went awry and her husband failed to provide, Norma took it upon herself to make a better life for her and her kids.


    About the author:


    Norma Yaeger, came of age in New York in the mid 20th century when even educated women were expected to marry, have children and keep house.  So Norma went to City College of New York’s Bernard Baruch School Of Business and the Institute of Finance and then she got married, had children and deferred to her husband.  When he failed to provide, she not only stepped up, she stepped out, and became a stockbroker.

    Meet authors Rick and Wendy Walleigh. They will be joining me on The Author Chat Show to discuss their book: From Silicon Valley to Swaziland: How One Couple Found Purpose And Adventure In An Encore Career


    About the book:


    What do you do when you're ready to retire from a successful career in Silicon Valley? Why not move to Africa and do volunteer work? Okay, this isn't the way most of us imagine spending our golden years. But Rick and Wendy Walleigh -- like so many baby boomers reaching the traditional age of retirement -- were too healthy, motivated, and interested in giving back to play golf for the rest of their lives. From Silicon Valley to Swaziland describes their experiences, from the challenges of day-to-day existence in an unfamiliar culture to the joys of helping people in poverty grow their own businesses. If you're thinking about transitioning to a more meaningful career, you'll find the Walleighs' story both informative and inspiring.

    Meet author Ron Boehm. Ron will be my guest on the show to discuss his new book, The Boys on Cherry Street: From the Crazy Innocence of College to the Loss of Innocenc in Vietnam.


    About the book:


    The Boys on Cherry Street is a collection of stories both humorous and heroic. The stories start with the zany and outrageous antics of the author and his college friends and continues through his U.S. Marine Corps training, flight school and service in Vietnam. There are many great books written about the Vietnam War—its heroes, their courage and sacrifice. However, this book is different in that it also shows the keen sense of humor that some men showed in some of the most stressful situations imaginable. It was this sense of humor that Boehm believe was part of their coping mechanism that got them through the tense situations of combat. The book is a salute to the young men of the Vietnam War Era who answered their country’s call.


    About the author:


    Ron Boehm was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. After graduation from Southeastern Louisiana College he went through OCS in the U.S. Marine       Corps and was commissioned an officer. He was one of the first group of aviation students the Marine Corps sent through U.S. Air Force Flight School.             After earning his Air Force and Navy Wings’ he flew the A6A Intruder in combat and served as a Forward Air Controller with the 7th Marine Regiment in       Vietnam. Ron Currently lives in Houston, Texas has two children and owns a construction company. This is his second book.
