    Authors Supporting Authors with Dion Cheese

    in Self Help

    Urban author, Dion Cheese, an African-American writer, penned Who Am I; The Chronicles of Cain; Explain It To Her Momma; and Caught Slipping.


    Formally a hip-hop recording artist, father, convict, and drug dealer, Dion was born in northern New Jersey, the 7th of 8 siblings. Raised in the inner city section of Plainfield New Jersey, his life was anything but a Norman Rockwell portrait; life was hard, cold and at times cruel. Crime and drug-ridden, Dion avoided the lures of selling drugs and/or using them, coming from a family where everyone had succumb to one or the other. He somehow managed to have the force of will and vision to step outside his world, becoming the first in his family history to go to college to pursue a degree in Chemical  Engineering.


    In his late teens, however, he felt the pull of the large wake his older brother was creating in hip hop music. Robert, A/K/A Dee Jay Cheese, better known as DJ King Kut, by his late teens was already a multi-award winning DJ World Champion, and later an inductee to the DMC Hall of Fame.


    Dion had always been inspired to write, and recorded his first song, “Phenomenal”, through CSI Entertainment in the mid-1980s as a tribute to the older brother’s talents. Two years later he formed Third Street productions and recorded the singles Third Street, Come On Everybody, Kick The Habit, and  Leading The pack — released on Big City Records. He performed live at countless festivals, ands did shows at The Strand Theater in Plainfield New Jersey [headlined by E.M.P.D], and Newark Symphony Hall [headlined by BDP, D-Nice and Poor Righteous Teachers].


    Along with his manager, Bruce T. Dugan, he founded Big City Records and, with the initial release of Third Street, the company established distribution through Schwartz Brothers, one of the largest independent national distributors at that time.

    Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. founder Scott Barnett is LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Written in a cinematic style, Gumption is about the creation, growth, and sale of the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. The concept began when Paramount Pictures reached out to see if there was interest in creating a restaurant based on the movie Forrest Gump. It is also the personal story of the author’s growth as a CEO and creator of restaurant concepts. A host of situations are described such as restaurant concept creation, high stakes boardroom confrontations, and escaping corrupt officials in foreign lands. The narrative is partly an unvarnished peak behind the everyday scenes of restaurants, movie studios, and Wall Street. There is also an almost step-by-step recounting of how the Bubba Gump concept and others were created and operated.  Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcome the founder of the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company Scott Barnett who is here LIVE to talk about his book Gumption.

    Suspense writer Linda Prather joins Authors on the Air LIVE to discuss writing

    in Books

    Authors on the Air Host Pam Stack welcomes suspense and paranormal writer Linda Prather.  Linda says this: "Something was missing in my life.  I wanted to write.  No, actually I needed to write.  In the mid 90s I joined a group called Green River Writers in Louisville, Kentucky.  The next five years contain many of my fondest memories of being a part of a group of authors.  Critiquing and being critiqued.  Learning to hone a craft that isn't simply putting words on a page.  I combined my love of mysteries with my love of metaphysics.  The payoff?  In 2005 I submitted my first novel, The Gifts, A Jacody Ives Mystery to Echelon Press, a small trade publisher.  After several months of nail biting and walking the floor I was offered a contract to publish.  Wow! I believed The Gifts to be a good book, but my readers amazed me even more when it took 2nd place in the Preditor's and Editor's contest for best novel of 2006 and was nominated for The David Award.  Reader requests resulted in my writing a prequel, Sacred Secrets, which has not been released by Amazon Digital. Research into the third Jacody Ives Mystery led to my studies in the paranormal research field, as well as my becoming a Paranormal Investigator.  I'm currently working on the 3rd and 4th Jacody Ives Mystery as well as a suspense novel and legal thriller."

    Authors Supporting Authors with Mr. Is Said

    in Self Help

    Mr. Is Said is an art form from the Continent of Africa. An author, mentor, community-based activist and educator, Is Said provides sage leadership on a national level and in the greater Columbus, Ohio arts community. He conceives, stages, writes, and performs unique multimedia arts events, combining visionary, historical-based poetry or prose synergistically with high-energy African music and dance.


    Is Said has traveled to Africa every year for the last 30 years. According Is Said, “Storytelling helps an audience to use their imagination and work together as a group. It stretches the mind beyond the sounds of joy and beauty. It is shapes of twisted information weaving a story and bringing the audience into your story.”


    Mr. Said usually tell stories that require a cast made up of member from the audience to act out the story. This gives the audience a chance to see and be right in the story as it unfolds messages of fun and history.


    “Storytelling is much like performing performance poetry: one uses their whole body to tell the story.”


    Minor rules of storytelling: Every story must have a beginning, middle, and an ending, characters, dialogue, location, place of action, moral, message, sometimes music, dance, animals, conflicts and conclusions. The most important thing about understanding a story is, using your imagination. 


    Is Said has written two short stories: Street Justice and Picking Cotton: A collection of our Elders lives and History called "The Table is Set”. Is Said has also written about 45 plays since 1973.

    Authors Supporting Authors with Mary Ellen Danuser

    in Self Help

    Show airs at 8:00 pm EST/AST; 7:00 pm CST; 6:00 pm MST; and 5:00 pm PST.


    Mary Ellen Danuser book, Freedom to Choose, sheds light as to why some people choose to date and marry outside their race.She believes that issues on interracial relationships are not fairly understood in today's society, partly attributed to the lack of public awareness on the subject. In turn it is the result of scarcely documented literature deeply addressing the case from the rare personal viewpoint. With this in mind, she wrote Freedom to Choose - Is Skin Color Really an Issue?” a compilation of true stories from interracially married couples all over the US, including the author’s real-life experiences.


    The book mainly tells the story of Mary Ellen and her spouse, John Dakota, a retired Marine officer and commercial pilot, interpolated with the narratives of the couples she has interviewed. It offers a rare look into the lives of these couples, revealing insights as to the rationales why some people choose their mates outside their race - a portrait of motive, intent, and personal choice. The real names of the pairs are withheld but the experiences shared are authentic and real.


    Mary Ellen, who served in the US Army as a medical specialist and an Army recruiter, is a retired insurance professional. With her husband she enjoys traveling, attending car races, dining out, outdoor concerts, reading, walking, sightseeing, and just hanging out with each other. Mary Ellen, born in Springfield, Illinois, grew up in Vandalia, Missouri. Because her passion since her retirement is writing non-fiction books, she is working on her second non-fiction book.
