Lucy Taylor joins us to chat about her latest book "Fatal Journeys" and "A Respite for the Dead". She was born in Richmond, VA, and never really got the South out of her system, as evidenced by the flavor of Southern Gothic in many of her works. She’s published seven novels, including NAILED, SAVING SOULS, and LEFT TO DIE (under the pseudonym Taylor Kincaid), and over 100 short stories.
FATAL JOURNEYS is a collection of stories about travelers who venture into regions both macabre and seductive, on the planet and within the psyche. Featuring eleven stories, including the previously unpublished “Summerland”, “The High and Mighty and Me”, “Soul Eaters”, the novella “How Real Men Die” and an introduction by acclaimed horror author Jack Ketchum, who writes: “…there are places you really shouldn’t go. Places that are dangerous to the heart, mind, and body. And these are the journeys she’s taking you on here. Some very far away geographically. Some much closer to home.… To Iceland where a wandering spirit exacts sorrowful, endless vengeance. To the back roads of Mississippi on the Fourth of July in search of a child-killer…To Thailand to kill your best friend.… So many dangerous places to go.” Visit her website at: www.lucytaylor.us

Living with a brain injury has been interesting, harsh and unforgiving. I have learned more about humanity in the last 7 years than I have all the rest of the years combined. I had a hope that one day it would be behind me. All the overwhelmed brain days, all of the headaches, all of the thoughts of self-worthlessness and doubt. As we approach these days that get shorter each day, the weather getting wet and cooler. Shorter days and longer nights add to our feeling down. Holidays are reminders of days past, and people past. I know for me it takes all my energy to get through them.
I try to paint the pretty face for my daughters and people who look to me for support. It is so hard at times. I just like everyone else want to crawl under a rock and isolate from the world. Disappear into the darkness that my mind creates. And create it does, a never ending race of thoughts that I cannot process because my brain is going faster than I can understand. And sometimes these thoughts get me in trouble, on the wrong path.
The blessing side of this I have developed a life that accommodates my life, and these over stimulating conditions that can pound me into the group. And I have had those moments where I thought I could leave it all behind and just blend into society. Refuse for a short time to time respite from all that has crumbled in my life. As I rebuild this new me, on I don’t even fully recognize. I am learning I am trapped inside myself and for the seven years of my fight there has been NO WAY OUT.

SEX & SURRENDER follows the journey of A.D. Burks, a recovering sex addict. Raised predominantly in a single-parent religious-based home, A.D. was given every opportunity to succeed in life, and he did. He flourished in the education, entertainment and corporate arenas, and his life looked picture perfect from the outside. Yet deep down his personal life was tormenting him due to the conflict between his spiritual and sexual beliefs. Longing for the perfect/traditional family he never had with his female best-friend, he redirected his pain through countless forms of risky sexual behavior.
Sex & Surrender graphically recounts the addictive cycle which lasted nearly 12 years and almost ended his life—until he had a dream that helped him realize he had to find a way out. Therapy and spiritual counseling provided a temporary respite and helped him devise a four-step process to manage his addiction. Yet his true breakthrough didn't come until the root of his pain was uncovered.

Celebrities like Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, George Michael, Michael Douglas, Eric Benet, Charlie Sheen, Ted Haggard, David Duchovny, and Jesse James. What do they all allegedly have in common? They each had an addiction that almost ruined their lives and the lives of the people around them. While the media revealed these sexual indiscretions for the whole world to see, they stopped short of analyzing the root of this addiction. Too often we don't hear the documented progress these men have made in picking up the pieces of their broken lives. Although it might be beneficial to see the progress, recovery doesn't make great headlines. So observers are left to make assumptions without all the relevant pieces to this most complex sex addiction puzzle. For National Recovery Month, we will go deeper to reveal the naked truth.
In Sex and Surrender: An Addict's Journey, author A.D. Burks graphically recounts his addictive cycle, which lasted roughly twelve years, and almost ended his life. Through a dream Burks realized he had to find a way out. Therapy and spiritual counseling gave him temporary respite and inspired him to devise a four-step process to manage his addiction. Yet Burks' true breakthrough came when the root of his pain was uncovered and he realized that sex does not equal love. During this show highlighting recovery, Burks will provide us with tidbits from his book to give us a taste of his addiction and recovery process.
A.D. Burks is a native Texan and renaissance man. He sang with the Grinnell Singers at Carnegie Hall, earned a Bachelors degree in Chemistry and an MBA from Rice University.
