    An Interview with Laura the Friendly Ghostwriter!

    in Dreams

    Our host Sharon Beth interviews Laura Becker-Sherman, the Friendly Ghostwriter!  When people ask me, “What do you do?”  I answer, “I’m Laura the Friendly Ghostwriter!” No one thinks that’s boring. I love to write. Typically I am working on a few memoirs and a business book, while a novel or two bubble away on the burners. When helping someone write their memoirs I focus on the overall message of the book first. I will not take on a story that is doom and gloom, designed to depress the reader. I am interested in inspirational stories, which will uplift people. People can learn a lot from another person's life story. For nonfiction, I specialize in making complex subjects easy to understand. This involves researching a subject so well that I can then break it down and explain it to anyone with any background. When I write fiction, my novels are very dialogue driven. I find that when I develop my characters, all I need to do is sit back and listen to them. So I guess you can call me a stenographer. I did get a degree in Civil Engineering at Cal Poly Pomona and worked for the Department of Water and Power in LA. I also studied chess for many years, playing in tournaments around the country. My highest national rating gave me the honor of being the top 35th woman player in the US. In 2008 I founded Your Chess Coach with my husband, teaching children the wonders of chess. We have taught hundreds of children to play. I love working with very young kids, breaking down the basics so that they can play the game (often beating their parents). Chess Is Child’s Play – Teaching Techniques that Work came out in April 2012. I wrote this book with author Bill Kilpatick in order to give parents the tools to become private chess coaches for their children. The reviews have been spectacular, which is very rewarding. I’m a ghostwriting, author, chess coach and mother. Life is always an adventure!

    The Constitution and its Amendments

    in Education

    The concept of "Citizenship", and the nationalist propaganda which accompanies it, are as old as the hills. The fear-stricken are the most likely to give up freedom for a sense of security -- the high priests of even the most "uncivilized" peoples understand this principle and utilize it to this day. Citizens are those who have given up a freeman's sovereignty for the sake of virtual anonymity in the collective, even in a so-called "capitalist" or "democratic" society.


    The Constitution for the United States is one of the most idolized documents in recent history, but why? What does it even have to say? What does it have to do with your life? Does it protect you from your own personal boogeyman?


    Join Burt, Greg, Casey, and our special guest Susan (ghostwriter of Beyond the National Myth:Waking up in the Land of the Free, and author of The Quality Life Plan: 7 Steps to Uncommon Financial Security) as we discuss these ideas and more.


    We'll be taking callers throughout the show tonight at (347) 637-3632 -- feel free to give us a shout!

    Nicholas Thurkettle, Co-Author of Historical Fiction Novel "Seeing by Moonlight"

    in Books

    1941 - On the eve of America’s entry into World War II, Nazi Germany is developing a new weapon of unprecedented power, one that will give them ultimate victory over all the nations of the world. But the war turns against them before it is completed, and a conspiracy forms to preserve the weapon and carry on the research.


    1999 - At the dawn of a new century, Alex Pyke, a self-styled bachelor entrepreneur, wants only the American Dream of a bigger house and a fatter bank account. But a business opportunity lures him back to Germany, the country he left as an orphan of five during the height of the Cold War. Upon his arrival, he is swept up in a deadly adventure involving an aging industrialist and his brilliant, beautiful niece. Even as Alex unravels the mysteries of his own family’s history, he makes a discovery that will change the direction of his life, and maybe the whole world beyond.


    Seeing by Moonlight is a thriller that combines uncovered history of the German rocketry program with a science fiction twist to create a sweeping tale of secrets and love that spans generations past, present, and future.


    Nicholas Thurkettle has worn many hats in the creative world – screenwriter, playwright, novelist, journalist, editor, ghostwriter, stage producer/director, actor, feature film story executive and consultant, teacher, production crew member. He works independently in Los Angeles with the continuing goal of bringing good work to audiences anywhere he can find them.


    Nicholas is the co-author (with M.F. Thomas) of the acclaimed thriller novel Seeing by Moonlight, and the author of the short story collection Stages of Sleep. He earned his degree in Theatre Performance and Music at Bradley University, and is a proud member of the Writers Guild of America and the Orange County Playwrights Alliance.
