    Author Chuck Greaves on his new book "Tom & Lucky" LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes talented author Chuck Greaves, a.k.a. C. Joseph Greaves.  Chuck's new book, "Tom & Lucky"  is due later this year.  Here is a little about that book.  The year is 1936. Lucky Luciano is the most powerful gangster in America. Thomas E. Dewey is an ambitious young prosecutor determined to bring him down, and Cokey Flo Brown – grifter, heroin addict, and sometimes prostitute – is the witness who claims she can do it. Only a canny Long Island defense attorney named George Morton Levy stands between Lucky and a life behind bars, between Dewey and the New York Governor’s mansion.   But for four short weeks in the spring of 1936, the intersection of these four lives – in their respective roles as defendant, prosecution and defense attorney, and star witness – would enthrall the nation, introducing America to the violent and darkly glamorous world of organized crime and leaving our culture, laws, and politics forever changed. This is their story.

    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.

    Authors Supporting Authors with Wayne Clark

    in Self Help

    Montreal's Time is the same as Eastern Time (New York, NY, USA)

    Award-winning author Wayne Clark was born in 1946 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, but has called Montreal home since 1968. Woven through that time frame in no particular order have been interludes in Halifax, Toronto, Vancouver, Germany, Holland and Mexico.


    By far the biggest slice in a pie chart of his career would be labelledReaders' Favorite International Book Award including newspapers and magazines, as a reporter, editor and freelance writer.


    Wayne, author of he & She, a literary fiction novel published in October 2013, is the recipient of the Readers' Favorite International Book Award.


    The other, smaller slices of the pie would also represent words in one form or another, in advertising as a copywriter and as a freelance translator. However, unquantifiable in a pie chart would be the slivers and shreds of time stolen over the years to write fiction.
