We're going to have a great time, because we always do. Come laugh with us, listen to these amazing authors read excerpts from their books and talk about what inspires them to write.
After accepting a dare, 21-year-old Thonie Hevron tested and was hired by San Rafael Police in 1973 as a Parking Enforcement Officer. That was 35 years ago. She writes like she thinks: like a cop. Her first book, BY FORCE OR FEAR won third place in the Public Safety Writers Contest 2012. INTENT TO HOLD won first prize at the "Police Blotter" contest by Oak Tree Press in November, 2013 and third prize at the Public Safety Writers Contest 2014.
Betty Jean Craige grew up in El Paso, went to Pomona College for a B.A. in Spanish Literature and to the University of Washington for an M.A. and a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature, spent a formative year in Madrid, and then in 1973 came Athens, Georgia, to join the faculty of Comparative Literature at the University of Georgia. After thirty-eight happy years at the University of Georgia, she retired in 2011 as University Professor of Comparative Literature and Director of the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts. Along the way she published seventeen academic books in the fields of literature, literary translation, art, and history of ideas, including the biography Eugene Odum: Ecosystem Ecologist and Environmentalist. Her novel Downstream is a murder mystery with an environmentalist message.
This month on What's Write for Me, Dellani plays host to four great writers. Mayra Calvani author of "How to Turn Your Book Club into a Spectacular Event" is joined by William Beck, author of "HAARP'S FURY", Red 7" and "Caribbean Agenda". Also chatting with Dellani are authors Linda Morrison Spear, author of "I Know You By Heart" and Crimson Kildare. The authors will discuss their approach to writing and share excerpts of their stories. Of course, it won't be any fun because Dellani doesn't allow any frivolity. (Yeah right!)

Dellani's got an interesting show planned for October, with a wide range of guests slated to appear. First up is Rico Austin, author of "My Bad Tequila". Although Tequila is not Dellani's favorite beverage, she's still willing to have Rico on the show. Dellani's second guest is fellow Red River Writer host, Franny Armstrong, author of "The Mystic Touch" and other exciting romance novels. Third, is Tom Barnes, author of "The Hurricane Hunters" and "Tungee's Gold". As always, the authors will discuss their approach to writing and share excerpts from their books. This is a really interestingly diverse bunch, so be sure to tune in. As always, there will be no outbursts of laughter allowed on the show. Dellani takes life too seriously. It's never any fun, ever.
This month's discussion features my favorite inspirational author, Lawrence D. Elliot. Joining Lawrence on the show are authors Dianna Graveman and Deborah Sheldon. We'll be discussing their approach to their craft as well as what makes a good ending. Join us live for this great discussion.
It's Red River Radio and you are invited to join Peggy Greene & Jon Magee and our author guests. On our April 11th show, Red River Writers Live, we will be talking with authors, Gwyn Ramsey and Sherry Monahan about their writing interests in the history of the American West. Both are members of Women Writing the West, and on this show we will also talk about how the westward movement affected women.
Our first guest, Gwyn Ramsey has done a three-book saga on the Anderson family. The most recent is Bound for Texas. The first was Journey to Tracer’s Point, followed by Winds of Change. In these chronicles, she embroiders a very complex and adventurous family history. These stories show a firm grasp of the challenges of those times. Gwyn is an active member of The Tampa Area Romance Authors and has developed some very effective marketing methods for her books.
Sherry Monahan has published six books. She is also editor, columnist and freelance writer for various magazines, True West and Arizona Highways. Sherry serves on the executive board of Western Writers of America, and is a member of the Author’s Guild, Women Writing the West, Wild West History Association, Western Writers International, National Women's History Museum. She consults with and appears on television and consults with the film industry on western history.
These authors compliment each other’s backgrounds nicely. Gwyn Ramsey’s writing is more about the adventures of the westward movement, and Sherry Monahan gives us a rich picture of people’s lifestyles as they attempted to settle or make their fortunes. Do join us for a very enjoyable exchange.
Happy Mother's Day to all just a bit late.
My two guests for May are Gerrie Ferris Finger and Serita Stevens.
Gerrie Ferris Finger grew up in Missouri, then traveled South to join the staff of the The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. She traveled the Tobacco Roads of Georgia and Alabama and the narrow, historic streets of New Orleans. She wrote about Natchez, Mississippi's unique history, Florida's diverse population, and the Outer Banks struggle to keep light houses from toppling into the sea. In 2009 she won The Malice Domestic/St. Martin's Minotaur Best First Traditional Novel for The End Game. Her latest book is Running With Wild Blood.
Born in Chicago, Serita Stevens (a registered nurse) came out to Los Angles when offered a teaching job at USC. Serita says she has always been a writer. With her master’s in writing (with honors) from Antioch University in London, England, she went on to become well known in the romance and mystery field. Her latest book, co-written with Jo Schaffer is, Against Her Will.
