    The Authentic Woman - with Host Shannon Fisher and Special Guest Pat Bertram

    in Books

    A Message from This Week's Special Guest:

    Washington Irving wrote: “There is in every true woman’s heart a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity; but which kindles up, and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.” As I read these words a decade ago, I could see her, a drab woman, defeated by life, dragging herself through her days in the normal world, but in an abnormal world of strife and danger, she would come alive and inspire others. And so Kate Cummings, the hero of my novel A Spark of Heavenly Fire was born.

    "I am thrilled to be the first guest on Shannon Fisher’s new show, The Authentic Woman. It’s fitting that that this book is being highlighted because Shannon herself is a true woman who embodies the spark of heavenly fire the world so desperately needs." ~ author Pat Bertram

    in Education

    In an effort to build consensus across the Global African Diaspora around strategies for cooperating and coordinating, CFA collaborates with African Views to facilitate a conference call of Diaspora leaders in the Western Hemisphere, as part of the 2014 Ronald H. Brown African Affairs Series.  While time, distance and travel resources have proven to be significant obstacles in the coordination of Diaspora in support of Africa, this effort can bridge the gap, by holding the first of several conference calls of Diaspora leaders around the globe to open and strengthen dialogue. 

    Synopsis of intent:

    To formalize the platform where experts and professionals in Africa and Diaspora can collaborate with their immense intellect, expertise, skills, ideas and other resources necessary to develop and design the optimal solutions for bridging and amplifying the economic and scientific gaps between Africa and the rest of the world.

    Expected Outcome

    To form alliance of strength and interest between the Diaspora and Africa, as well as to cultivate a collaborative global communication platform for reliable and well guided intelligence committees that will liaise directly with institutional partners, essential state holders and sovereign authorities on African development issues.


    Organizing entities:

    Constituency For Africa (CFA): http://www.cfa-events.org
    African Views (AV): http://www.africanviews.org

    Creativity In Writing with Special Guest Pat Bertram

    in Writing

    Pat Bertram is a native of Colorado. When the traditional publishers stopped publishing her favorite type of book — character and story driven novels that can’t easily be slotted into a genre — she decided to write her own. Second Wind Publishing liked her style and published four of Bertram’s books: Light Bringer, Daughter Am I, More Deaths Than One, and A Spark of Heavenly Fire. Bertram blogs about writing and the writing life at http://patbertram.com/
    Becka Johnson had been abandoned on the doorstep of a remote cabin in Chalcedony, Colorado when she was a baby. Now, thirty-seven years later, she has returned to Chalcedony to discover her identity, but she only finds more questions. Who has been looking for her all those years? Why are those same people interested in fellow newcomer Philip Hansen? Who is Philip, and why does her body sing in harmony with his? And what do either of them have to do with a shadow corporation that once operated a secret underground installation in the area?
    Bertram's publisher says: "I was told by some other small publishers with whom I had done research that I was going to get mountains of unacceptable crap for every worthy thing I received. So when I got Pat's manuscript for A Spark of Heavenly Fire, which was like the first submission to Second Wind, I thought, 'OMG, is this possible?!' I knew in the first 20 pages that she was the real thing."
    Join us as we speak of speculative genre, new forms of creativity and Pat's journey to find the perfect venue for her writings. Visit via the chat room or call in @ 213-769-0952 to speak live on-air with the author.
