We will be talking to author, SHARON HAMILTON. Sharon Hamilton's award-winning spicy Navy SEAL stories in the SEAL Brotherhood series, have consistently made best sellers lists and review sites. Her characters follow a sometimes rocky road to redemption through passion and true love.
Her Golden Vampires of Tuscany are not like any vamps you’ve read before, since they don’t go to ground and can walk around in the full light of the sun. Her Guardian Angels struggle with the human charges they are sent to save, often escaping their vanilla world of Heaven for the brief human one. You won’t find any of these beings in any Sunday school class.
She lives in Sonoma County, California with her husband, and two Dobermans. A lifelong organic gardener, when she’s not writing, she’s getting vera vera dirty in the mud, or wandering Farmer’s Markets looking for new Heirloom varieties of vegetables and flowers.
Blurb for Accidental SEAL, the first of my SEAL Brotherhood series:
Christy Nelson embarks on her new career in Real Estate by holding her first open house. Entering the wrong house, by accident, she finds the nude sleeping body of a young man.
Navy SEAL Kyle Lansdowne, on a mission to find his AWOL Team buddy, is staying at his buddy’s home while investigating the disappearance. When someone breaks in, he takes protective measures. He doesn’t expect to find that a beautiful young woman is responsible for his teammate’s abduction. What starts out as a meeting by accident becomes a hot affair neither one is ready for. Kyle is conflicted about getting Christy involved in his mission, but his hand is forced when he learns the same San Diego gang responsible for his teammate’s abduction has kidnapped her.
This weeks show we will be talking with Sifu Sean McKelven Chief Instructor of Yee's Hung Ga Kung Fu Academy. So why Kung Fu. Well martial arts is an activity that I have always been partial to and its power to not only mold the body but the transformative nature it has on a person's mind/attitude.
Angie Womack of Fit In Inc Personal & Group Persoal Training will also be on the show sharing her philosophy, health and fitness tips. Ms Womack and Sifu Sean operate out of the same building in Lansdowne, PA.
Michell Govan the D'Stress Diva will also be on the show she has an interesting program that I believe is worth listening about as stress (I've been a victim of it myself) must be managed.
What I am talking about with this program is change, attitude, habits of success. So listen in to Sifu Sean, Angie Womack, and Michelle Govan and learn something.
The art of changing yourself deals with health, wellness, fitness, many of the subject matter will be taken from issues that stem from the book "I Don't Want to Look Like a Man". This book looks at atttudes surrounding health, wellness and fitness. The book was marketed to women specifically African American women but any woman that has to deal with the health of her self and her family can relate to many of the topics within the book. That is the first hour.

ROYNATION will be talking to Scott Eunson and Marianne Lovink about their work that runs along the former TTC lot along Lansdowne. How it got there, how it was made and what will happen after they build on the lot are all questions that will be answered along with what else they are up to in their practice. I love that piece and realized it even more when I walked by it the other night - I usually cycle by. Check out the video on the page.
Also, ROYNATION is the official media sponsor of the Artist-Run Centres' Holiday Quickie Party. Intern Kathleen will be on location to ensure that the winners of the infamous Holiday Cookie Bake-off Contest get a chance to speak while still in the ecstasy of their win. The competition is fierce and these are not just cookies - it's like the Governor-General Awards on performance enhancing drugs, and we're taking performance.
We welcome new intern Trisha to the show too!
FOR A MAN who spent his life in the often frustrating struggle to win justice for African-Americans, George Russell Trower-Subira embodied the meaning of the Swahili word that he added to his given name.
"Subira" means "patience" in Swahili. And that was one of the main characteristics of George's character.
"He had incredible patience with people," said his brother, Len Trower. "Even people who did unjust things to him, he would forgive them. He would try to rationalize why they did it.
George Russell Trower-Subira, who grew up in Philadelphia as George Trower and wrote numerous books of self-help advice for African-Americans as George Subira, collapsed and died of a heart attack Sunday while jogging on the track at Penn Wood High School, in East Lansdowne. He was 66 and lived in East Lansdowne.
He was a major influence on the subject of black entrepreneurship through his writings and speeches. His book, "Black Folks Guide to Making Big Money in America," published in 1980, was the first to tell blacks that what was missing from their drive for equality was success in the economic arena.
"That book set off a ton of other authors writing about that topic," his brother said. "It was the first book to really address that issue."
In 1988, George published what is considered the only sales-training book for African-Americans, "Getting Black Folks to Sell."
Other books were "Black Folks Guide to Business Success" and "Money Issues in Black Male/Female Relationships."
Always active in developing programs to benefit blacks, especially young people, George was working on a mentoring program for black youths and former prisoners when he died.
His aim was to stop what he saw as the revolving door of incarceration for African-American men.
