    Saying the Rosary with Dellani

    in Prayer

    In this episode of Saying the Rosary with Dellani, I will focus on another set of Mysteries -- The Glorious Mysteries, traditionally said on Wednesday and Sunday. You can find the Mysteries here: http://www.catholic.org/prayers/mystery.php


    I will be saying the rosary live the last day of the month for four months. Each month I will concentrate on a different set of Mysteries. Thank you for joining me in prayer!

    Lets Talk Dellani Oakes

    in Pop Culture

    Huffington Post columnist Rachel Thompson and Critic/writer/columnist for Night Owl Magazine and Affaire De Couer Bennet Pomerantz discuss media topics with guests 


    Dellani Oakes is a former A.P. English teacher and photo journalist. Now working as a substitute teacher and Mary Kay consultant, she can give skin care & makeup advice, correct grammar, take pictures and write an article while controlling a classroom full of rowdy children.


    Dellani was making up stories before she could read. Her first really cohesive work began when her older sister started school. Left to entertain herself, she invented an imaginary friend and would regale her mother with tales of Snowy Green and Rainbow School. These stories paved the way for songs and poems in elementary school and short stories in high school and college.


    A college theatre major, Dellani took play writing. It became her new love. Scripts being dialog heavy and character driven, this aspect has followed her into her novel writing. She uses verbal exchanges & sparring as a way of revealing both plot and characterization.


     


    . Her first novel, "Indian Summer", was published in 2008 by Second Wind Publishing. Also from Second Wind, her second novel, "Lone Wolf" made its debut in September 2011. "Lone Wolf" is the first in her science-fiction series. Book two of the Lone Wolf Series - "Shakazhan", came out in July of 2013.


    In addition to her books published by Second Wind Publishing, Dellani has two novels with Tirgearr Publishing: "The Ninja Tattoo" and "Under the Western Sky"


    Dellani is also a Blog Talk Radio host with two shows each month: Dellani's Tea Time 4:00 PM Eastern every 2nd Monday & What's Write for Me at 4:00 PM Eastern every 4th Wednesday. Look for her on Red River Radio Network. (Guests vary)

    Say the Rosary with Dellani

    in Christianity

    Want to say the rosary, but don't know how? Do you like to say the rosary with another person? Stumble over the prayers or feel strange talking to yourself? Dellani can help.


    I won't say I'm the best Catholic, because that would be a lie, but I am trying to motivate myself to say the rosary more often. By committing these broadcasts, I hope to bring you some joy and find more of a focus for myself. Join me live on Thursday, July 31 for the first episode of Say the Rosary with Dellani.


    Until then, I hope you have a blessed day.

    Dellani Oakes, Writer, Teacher, Consultant, Mother

    in Books

    When she moved to Florida, Dellani Oakes had no idea the history was so rich and fascinating. Visiting St. Augustine for the first time, she felt the allure of the country's oldest city. She decided then to write a story based there. It wasn't until nearly 12 years later that 'Indian Summer' took its final form. Dellani is a happily married mother of 4, a substitute teacher, and a former English teacher. When she is not one of the above, she is an avid writer, spending every possible moment immersed in her other worlds. She has also written a series of futuristic romance novels, contemporary romances and short stories. 


    In an interview with self-publishing site, Smashwords, Dellani, shared, "I've been telling stories since childhood. I started writing short stories in high school and plays in college. I first attempted novel writing in 1988, but I never finished it. Maybe one day. I took up writing as a serious vocation in 2002, when my youngest started kindergarten."


    Dellani added, "I had a nomadic childhood. My father was an English professor and  we moved a lot. I lived in Tennessee, Ohio, Massachusetts, Texas, Nebraska and  Mississippi before coming to Florida. It gave me a wonderful variety of settings and  people to choose from in my writing. Under the Western Sky is set in Nebraska in 1976. 'The Ninja Tattoo' takes place in present-day Florida. 'Indian Summer' is set in Florida's past in 1739."
