    Sunny Giovanni

    in Writing

    In southern Dallas, Texas, Sunny Giovanni-- or "Gio" as she likes to be called-- was born on the fifth day of June in 1989. Born to a mother who was a teacher and a graduate from Texas A&M University you couldn't so much as watch a Disney movie if you hadn't read the book beforehand. Gio has had a very strong history with literature, diversifying from poetry (winning placements in oratorical contests), to thriller short stories as a way to vent her frustrations.
    The pen was handed down to her from an older sibling as a means to focus her negative energy and anger into something different but was used as a way to alter her own situations.
    As a preteen Gio witnessed how much her writing could touch someone when she left one of her prized spirals in a classroom without knowing. Two weeks after it went missing someone brought it back to her asking for more, letting the young author know that almost everyone she knew read the story, but without knowing it was her in the story she had written.
    Sunny Giovanni is an advocate for gay and transgender rights, and says: "You can't help who you are and you damn sure can't help who you love. You should be true to who are rather than to conform and live the ultimate lie and live miserably until the day you die." Credited from the poem she penned "Titanium", modeled after her novel.
    Gio is a mother of three children, the founder of Lucid Legends Publishing/ Photography, Kno Joke Entertainment, the host of "We Talk TOO Much Radio" on BlogTalk Radio and blogs on Tumblr under the name "KnoJokeGio". She is a friend to many and prides herself on making a smile out of an extremely horrible day. "It doesn't matter if you're having a bad day... a smile could make everything else seem so small. Crack a joke when someone is hurt and see how fast they cheer up. Even at a random moment.

    Suspense Radio One on One with Vincent Zandri

    in Books

    Suspense Radio One on One takes a twist and comes to you on Monday with a very special guest.  Author Vincent Zandri is a USA Today bestselling author. 


    His latest book "Everything Burns" will be on the table tonight, along with several of his other books.


    "Everything Burns": 


    When Reece Johnston was a boy, a fire destroyed his home, killing his mother and brothers while leaving him scarred for life. It also kindled something dark inside him: an irresistible attraction to flames in all their terrifying, tantalizing power. But after two failed arson attempts—and two trips to the mental ward—he was finally able to put down the matches and pick up the pieces.


    With a career as a bestselling crime writer going strong, Reece is working to fix his broken marriage to Lisa and be there for their preteen daughter, Anna. He’s not just dealing with his own demons; there’s a world of deadly hurt bearing down on him in the form of the jealous rival he’s bested in literature and love, who’s determined to see Reece crash…and burn. But a guy like Reece knows how to take the heat. And thanks to his lifelong friendship with fire, he also knows how to bring it.

    When did you Die? A Powerful Interview with author Temple Hays

    in Health

    You may not have realized you were dying, but you have been dying a little more each day. And that's the miracle of Temple Hayes' remarkable new book When Did You Die? 8 Steps to Stop Dying Every Day and Start Waking Up. It empowers you to wake up and take back your life! 


    Born in a rural Southern family, her life was filled with strife--violence in the home, a lack of love and compassion andt neglect. Her father killed her cat, later ran over her dog with his truck and when she was helping her beloved dog, her grandfather--with reckless abandon--ran over her with his car.  Her mother was forced into shock treatments for not conforming to local morale judgments. What terrible message did THAT convey to her preteen daughter? Men tried to force themselves on Hayes. At 13, she sought to numb the pain with alcohol bought at the local grocery store. But there was more that she was hiding, she knew she had a deep connection to spirit which no one would approve or believe because it didn't conform to traditional Christian teachings. And the biggest secret of all was that she was attracted to other girls.  Each day, she denied who she was,dying a little more each day.


    Over the years, despite outwardly having a very successful professional career in the corporate world, she floundered in relationships, felt empty and hid her sexual identity. And then slowly she emerged -- with a deep hunger for spiritual connection, a connection that led to her healing and to the wisdom that she offers in When Did You Die?   Listen to Aging Younger and Temple Hayes and shift your paradigm to live beyond your greatest vision.
