Book Discussion welcomes Dr. Glenn Parrish the author of The Renaissance of Aspirin. This is the story of Anita Thomas and Jack Wheaton, two young doctors unwittingly in possession of a designer antibody for the treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome. The new drug is effective, but dangerously flawed. The problem is Anita Thomas has developed a cheap, safe alternative agent. Naturally, after expenditure of a fortune in development, the drug manufactures are not at all pleased with her. The pieces unfold, as we follow Anita and Jack from beautiful upscale midtown to the seedier downtown counterparts of Boston and Atlanta over shadowed by deadly stalkers and embellished by amorous often comically frustrating misadventures. The Renaissance of Aspirin is peppered with industrial espionage, suspense and passion as the chase is on for the first cure for fibromyalgia. Entangled with colorful comrades such as Dasher Clay; Stormi Seales and Khandi Barr in their camp, Anita and Jack barely keep ahead of the treacherous cabal of nemeses; Luciana Velasquez and Jason Brasil led by the Über-villain, Orson Quirk. Paced in the tradition of The Pelican Brief, Coma or a contemporary Maltese Falcon, The Renaissance of Aspirin is both plot and character driven with a ly credible McGuffin at its core. These complex characters are funny, mean, desperate, lonely and at the same time very humanly imperfect. Readers will find their prickly exploits thoroughly entertaining. Dr. Parrish will discuss his novel and explain Fibromyalgia to our audience. Please join me at four eastern, three central and two mountain. I am your host Fran Lewis editor of MJ magazine.
Four eastern, three central and two mountain: Let's Write with your host Fran Lewis is a new show that will focus on the art of writing itself. On this first show we will talk about how the three novelists create their storylines for revolving or reoccuring characters and they they manage to keep reader interest. What is the difference between writing a trilogy or three book series as opposed to having one or several characters in a series? How do they create open ended endings that lead into the next book? How do they create conflict for the main characters and which minor characters support the main characters when solving the main conflict or problem that the author has created? How do these authors create the murder scene or the crime scene and how do you decide on your vicitm or victims? When ending chapters do they tend to lead into the next one or is there a change of scenery, setting and plot line. These and many other questions and writing tips will be answered when New York Times Best Selling Author John Lescroart, Award winning author Mark Rubinstein and Award winning author Mary Martin join me, Fran Lewis to discuss the art of writing. Let's Write welcomes questions from authors and writers in the chat room. Fran Lewis: Editor of MJ magazine, author of the Bertha series and Faces Behind the Stones Series.

According to Dr. Darold A. Treffert of the University of Wisconsin, there are fewer than one hundred reported cases of prodigious savants in the world. Those few who possess the savant syndrome all have an island of brilliance that allows them to excel in some remarkable talent. Unfortunately, they all share various developmental disabilities.

Thursday: Four Eastern, Three Central: Two Mt and One Pacific: Fran Lewis the host of Book Discussion welcomes Best selling author Larry Thompson: Insanity Plea and the author of Sentinel's Choice: Mike Witzgall.
As a member of the elite U.S. Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance teams, Renee LaFleet learned hard lessons about survival. This is where he met the brother of his heart, Navy SEAL commander, Richard Shannon, under the harsh conditions of hand to hand combat. But nothing he experienced in Iraq prepared him for the evil he would face as a homicide detective in Dallas, Texas. At least in battle you know the enemy. When bodies start turning up all murdered in the same manner, Ren is confronted with the unthinkable possibility that his best friend, Father Richard Shannon might be involved. Ren must decide where the bonds of brotherhood end and his duty as a Texas Peace officer starts. Learn more when Mike and I discuss Sentine's Choice.
A young nurse is savagely killed during a pre-dawn run on Galveston’s seawall. The murderer slices her running shorts from her body as his trophy and tosses the body over the wall to the rocks below. As dawn breaks, a bedraggled street person, wearing four layers of old, tattered clothes, emerges from the end of the jetty, waving his arms and talking to people only he hears. He trips over the body, checks for a pulse and, instead, finds a diamond bracelet which he puts in his pocket. He hurries across the street, heading for breakfast at the Salvation Army two blocks away, leaving his footprints in blood as he goes. Just who is accused and who will defend him you will learn when I interview Larry Thompson.
Join me in the chat room when I interview both mystery/thriller authors. Insanity Plea will keep you guessing until the very end. Sentinel's Choice is a fast paced novel with twists and turns you won't see coming. One show you want to hear!
Thursday: 4 Eastern, 3 Central, 2 mountain and 1 Pacific: Fran Lewis host of Book Discussion welcomes New York Times author John Lescroart. T
From New York Times bestselling author John Lescroart, a riveting novel featuring Dismas Hardy and Abe Glitsky on the hunt for clues about a woman who has gone missing.
On the evening before Thanksgiving, Hal Chase, a guard in the San Francisco County Jail, drives to the airport to pick up his step-brother for the weekend. When they return, Hal’s wife, Katie, has disappeared without a clue.
By the time Dismas Hardy hears about this, Katie has been missing for five days. The case strikes close to home because Katie had been seeing Hardy’s wife, a marriage counselor. By this time, the original Missing Persons case has become a suspected homicide, and Hal is the prime suspect. And the lawyer he wants for his defense is none other than Hardy himself.
Hardy calls on his friend, former homicide detective Abe Glitsky, to look into the case. At first it seems like the police might have it right; the Chases’ marriage was fraught with problems; Hal’s alibi is suspect; the life insurance policy on Katie was huge. But Glitsky’s mission is to identify other possible suspects, and there proves to be no shortage of them: Patti Orosco—rich, beautiful, dangerous, and Hal’s former lover; the still unknown person who had a recent affair with Katie; even Hal’s own step-mother Ruth, resentful of Katie’s gatekeeping against her grandchildren. And as Glitsky probes further, he learns of an incident at the San Francisco jail, where Hal works—only one of many questionable inmate deaths that have taken place there. Then, when Katie’s body is found not three blocks from the Chase home and Hal is arrested for her murder.Join me in the chat room when I interview John.
Fran Lewis and the World of Ink would like to welcome Tom Saywer the head writer of Murder She Wrote to talk about his career, working on the show and his latest five star release: Cross Purposes where we meet Private Investigator Barney Moon and a cast of characters you just won't forget.
Manhattan Private Investigator Barney Moon can hack, charm or con his way into or out of damned-near anything. Barney is driven - to solve cases, nail bad guys, and to anyplace not reachable via the NY Subway.
Barney never learned to drive. And, like most born/bred New Yorkers, he regards pretty much anywhere else as "Out-of-Town."But there is one place for which he has a particular, lifelong aversion: Los Angeles, California (which he thinks of as an Alien Planet). And - guess where he finds himself stranded?
In CROSS PURPOSES, a case takes the reluctant Barney and his driver, Al Drobowsky to Los Angeles to obtain a single fingerprint. Things quickly get complicated. That night, of what by then seems sure to be only two in Tinseltown, Al learns he must immediately return to Brooklyn.
Steve Shukis: POISONED: Arsenic is a metallic element that forms a number of poisonous compounds. Arsenic is found in nature. It can be found in compounds with oxygen, chorine and sulfur. These types of compounds are called inorganic arsenic compounds. When arsenic is in plants and animals it combines with carbon and hydrogen. This is noted as organic arsenic and is usually not as harmful as inorganic. The scary part is that most of these compounds have no smell or special taste. Some are used to preserve wood and others are used to make insecticides and weed killers. Imagine learning that the Food and Drug Administration released early results of an investigation of arsenic levels in rice.Herman Billik was said to be a Bohemian fortuneteller and quite familiar with arsenic and arsenic poisoning. Listen to the evidence: Innocent or guilty
