    Author MissRadiance & Trinity DeKane

    in Books

    Miss Radiance was born on May 31, 1982 in Wilson, North Carolina. She grew up in the small town Stantonsburg, North Carolina. She was raised by her grandmother, Josephine Jacob Johnson. Because of her shyness, the things that she wanted to express but could not say seemed to come out easier on paper. And when she was eleven years old her grandmother bought her a diary as a Christmas gift. Which Miss Radiance soon realized that not only was writing fun, it was also therapeutic, and there was power in putting a pen to paper. Miss Radiance immediately fell in love with the passion of being able to creatively express herself. Her writing started out simple with diary entries and poetry. When she got to high school and became involved in relationships, drama, sex, all the trials teenagers go through, she began recording these events in the form of short stories, pulling inspiration from friends and classmates, along with her own personal experiences which brought her stories to life. Her first novel was Gangasa Lovin volume one: An epic Love story. 


    Trinity DeKane began writing at a young age. Born and raised in Burlington, North Carolina Trinity has experienced alot of different experiences both good and bad which led her to writing.  From Poetry to Urban Fiction, no genre has gone untouched by this author. THOT's Ambition  is the first novel publicly released by Trinity and it won't be the last.  Trinity DeKane has other novels written but will be released later on in the future.  Trinity DeKane believes that with the support of her family and friends nothing will stop her from becoming a great author.    Any time in the evening is a good time for me. No subjects or conversations are off limits.    Thots AMBITION  is a NOVEL I released under Racquel Williams and Leo Sullivan Presents  .........

    Next on Naomi's Daughters


    A broadcast brought to you by Kingdom United Ministries Network


    Call (914) 803-4491 and press (1) to speak with the hosts or join in the LIVE chat


    "And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed[a] in heaven.”  Matthew 16:19 NKJV


    We've all experienced it; you go to your car, or get to the door of your home or need to get into something that has been locked for safekeeping, only to realize "You don't have your keys!"  Nothing can leave you feeling as helpless and even frustrated as being able to see something that belongs to you and not being able to access it.  Jesus spoke of The Kingdom of Heaven as being something that requires keys.  Keys that he gives us the same power and authority to use on earth that exists there.  But are we walking in it and if not, how can we?


    Join us on this month's broadcast as we are joined by Published Author, Anointed Speaker, Radio Host and powerful Woman of God "Linda Jo White".  Her testimony of overcoming the pain of early rejection, the struggles of having a negative self-image, betrayal and being a survivor of a gang-rape is evidence of Gods transforming power through Jesus Christ.  Linda's journey to "Becoming" will inspire as well as challenge anyone who has ever experienced the longing to understand the "why's" behind the pains of life and the pursuit of their God-intended purpose.

    Justice Clarke @ 4th & Baker Presents: WB - Interview with Lillianne Ama Crane

    in Poetry

    Bio (Lillianne Ama Crane):



    My name is Lillianne Ama Crane. I was born in Memphis Tennessee, raised in the mountains of NC during a time when drugs and prostitution were considered normal & suits and ties were something I only saw on one of the 2 television channels we could view via our 18 inch, copper antenna equipped T.V. In other words, I grew up in the streets and poor! I would be lying if I said my childhood were bad because it wasn't. I was the only child being sheltered by hippies, drunks, hustlers, pimps, whores... And they all had their different charms.  Even though I spent the majority of my youth wandering in the forest and communing with imaginary friends or "ghosts..." I was never lonely. I took the memories with me into adulthood.  I am a poet and an author. I published my first book, "Sweet Dreams of Josephine," in 2011. It was about a lady who turns herself into a madame and runs away from her tyrannical international drug dealer husband, following in the footsteps of her idol- Cocaine queen, Griselda Blanco. This was the first in the series and the second book, "Curse of the Blood Diamond", will come out soon. I live my life based on the principal that I don't have to be a product of my environment. Aside from writing, I am a quality engineer for an automotive corporation and a small business owner for a janitorial franchise. My passion is words... I love the written arts. Words can build things up, as well as tear them down. They can enchantment,  charm, & even enslave. My goal is to master the written arts. With a little love and willpower, I have faith that somewhere, somebody will fall in love with the words I choose to convey a message or tell a story- and that maybe, I can help someone see past the harsh reality of life and into world that we can create for ourselves.

    Why Did Sophie Schiller Race to Tibet

    in Writing

    Sophie Schiller was born in Paterson, NJ and grew up in the West Indies amid aging pirates and retired German spies. Among other oddities her family tree contains a Nobel prize-winning physicist and a French pop singer. 


    She loves stories that carry the reader back in time to exotic and far-flung locations. She was educated at American University, Washington, DC and lives in Brooklyn, New York. She is currently working on a new historical thriller set in the Caribbean.


    While Sophie was writing Race to Tibet, she had set the first scene of the novel—an altercation between Gabriel Bonvalot and General Prejevalsky that may or may not be real—in Café Tortoni, a well-known café on the Rue des Italiens in Paris. But until today she had never known about the existence of this painting, even though she had been to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston numerous times, although not prior to March 18, 1990, the day it was stolen. 


    To me, Cafe Tortoni, with its sophisticated ambiance and suave reputation, known for being the meeting place of politicians, intellectuals, scholars, dandies, and ladies of the demi-monde seemed to be the perfect setting to place two opposing characters, and how much more so now that I can see it through Manet's eyes.


    According to Sophie, "All I can say is, Wow! and pray that someday Chez Tortoni is restored to its rightful place in the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum, one of Boston's great cultural treasures. I spent close to 2 years researching the book before I ever put pen to paper. I feel I learned so much about the geography, the history, the culture, and the Great Game that I could teach a course on it! I still hope that one day I can visit Tibet."

Poisoned, it turns out. As more club members are murdered, Lexie begins to think she’s living in the Christie novel AND THEN THERE WERE NONE. There are discussions of Christie novels throughout the novel, and Lexie exposes the murderer when all involved are present in the Christie manner.

And who are the strange sisters living next door? Another club member is murdered and one is attacked. Along with her neighbor, a former FBI agent turned soccer mom, Lexie investigates and solve the murders as the group reads and discusses Josephine Tey’s books.


    Her sleuth, Lexie Driscoll,  is a college professor who’s had a rocky history of romance. She leads a Golden Age of Mystery book club.
