Lo and behold, the elusive and talented author S.H. Roddey is our featured guest this Wednesday night at 9pm in the Star Chamber!
Her long-awaited feature appearance coincides with the release of a brand new eBook, Devil's Daughter, and we will be talking about all kinds of things with her, from her rumored mastery of the art of making cheesecake to her talents shapeshifting. Fans can ready themselves as we will open up for call-ins too!
If you don't know about S.H. Roddey, you need to, because this is one Rockin' Roddey! Here's a bit about this writing wonder of the Carolinas:
South Carolina native S.H. Roddey has been writing for fun since she was a child and still enjoys building worlds across the speculative fiction spectrum filled with mystery and intrigue. She brings to the literary world a unique blend of humor, emotion, and wild ideas filled with dark themes and strong characters. Having already traversed the murky waters of both the independent press and self-publishing markets for short fiction, Susan is proud to have found a home with Seventh Star Press for her Soul Collectors novel series. In her spare time, she also writes paranormal and contemporary romance as Siobhan Kinkade.
In addition to writing she is also a voracious reader, wannabe chef, and video game addict with two full-time jobs: administrative social media professional, and mom to two cats, a teenager, and a precocious toddler with an affinity for computer keyboards. She also enjoys the perks of being married to her best friend and full-time muse.
So join us in the Star Chamber this Wednesday! From sheer mayhem to world domination, S.H. Roddey cannot be contained, so you'll have to tune in to see if the show survives her appearance on it!

LOTL The comfort zone Presents Chris Jasper. Debuts his new single THE ONE
If you are familiar with THE ISLEY BROTHERS, then you know Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, CHRIS JASPER, an integral member of THE ISLEY BROTHERS during the 1970s and 1980s—their gold and platinum years—from the 3+3 (1973) to Between the Sheets (1983) albums. These were the years when THE ISLEY BROTHERS were a self-produced, self-contained group.
If you are familiar with THE ISLEY BROTHERS, then you have heard the music of CHRIS JASPER, who was primarily responsible for writing and producing all of THE ISLEY BROTHERS music during this time, including such beautiful love songs as “For The Love of You” and “Between the Sheets” and uptempo funk such as “Fight the Power.” His arrangements and instrumentation as a classically-trained musician, and his expertise on the keyboards and synthesizers, are the foundation of the legendary “Isley Brothers Sound.” When the six members of THE ISLEY BROTHERS disbanded (1984), Marvin and Ernie Isley joined CHRIS JASPER and formed ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY. Without this crucial musical component, THE ISLEY BROTHERS were no longer a self-produced, self-contained group.

This lyrical thoroughbred goes by the name of Ayanna Charlene.
Born Ayanna Charlene Atkins on June 20th in Sacramento, Ca. Her parents knew their baby was a performer at heart. They enrolled their daughters in ballet and tap-dancing classes. Ayanna gained a majority of her musical nurturing and development from her father (Jeff Atkins) who toured and performed keyboards with Warner Bros recording
artists Club Nouveau in 1987-89. Ayanna was shy as a child so it amazed her mother when she signed herself up for a talent show at a summer camp she was enrolled in on the CSUS campus. Just 11 years old, she sang live for the first time in front of hundreds of students introducing her talent.
Ayanna fell in musical bliss when she was introduced to the tenor saxophone in Jr. High, where she practiced with her band class for two years. Ayanna later joined the youth choir at Unity Missionary Baptist Church in Sacramento, Ca. And traveled to Bakersfield, Ca to sing at a Baptist Convention. Ayanna also attended highschool at VAPAC (Visual and Performing Arts Charter) in East Sacramento to perfect her craft. There she would take opera alongside all of her required classes and different styles of dance.
Conflict with the district and Sacramento County Office of Education, would later cause the school to close down. But this didn’t stop this young star from shining. In 2007, she fell in love with the art of modeling and started her own modeling and promotions team called Box Of Chocolates. Together they helped promote her first single “Love Letter” written and vocally arranged by herself.
