    The Beautiful Butterfly Cafe` with Verbalskillz

    in Lifestyle




    Verbalskillz has seen many beautiful places in this world. He has lived on the shores of the east coast of the United States to the impressionable beauty of South America. He is a graduate of St. Pauls College in Lawrenceville, Va., class of 1979.

    Verbalskillz has loved writing from a very early age. But, his thirst for expressing himself through verbalization came at the hands of a very lovely 7th grader. Verbalskillz, at that time was too shy to convey his thoughts face to face. He would break out in sweats and mumbled inaudibly. That is when he took to pen and paper, discovering the portal of writing.

    Beautiful Butterfly Welcomes Author of Forbidden Love Kendra Graves

    in Books

    On This Episode of The Beautiful Butterfly Show We Welcome Special Guest Author of "Forbidden Love"  Kendra Graves. This is Kendra's first time on the show, so we are Excited to hear about this new author and the great works she has and will provide to the listeners and readers! Enjoy! 

     About Author Kendra Graves- Born and raised in Hartford Ct, I am 29 years young and a mother to my first born, my heart, my daughter Khaniyah. I always had a passion for writing. It all started at the age of 10 when I found myself alone in my bedroom and would write raps. From there I branched off and started writing poems but I found it didn't work for me. I gave it a rest for a few years and started back reading and writing at 15. My teachers always told me I was gifted. In school I would ace my writing exams. In highschool I read many books but it never occurred to me to write my own. I kept a journal of stories that happened to me, but never told my story. I graduated from highschool in 2004 and went on to cosmetology school because doing hair was my second passion. Shortly after entering into the field I had to leave school because I couldn't work with the chemical because my skin was to sensitive. I didn't know what else to do with myself so for a few years I tried to find something that worked for me. In 2010 I told myself I'm going back to school but It was all put on hold because I couldn't go as an independent student at 24. Once I turned 25 I enrolled in Kaplan university where I studied criminal justice. I made the dean's list every semester and presidents list my final semester. I graduated with my Associate of Applied Science in Criminal Justice in 2013 with a 3.91 gpa. Still trying to find myself in the field of my study is where I fumbled upon writing again in October 2014.

    Beautiful Butterfly Welcomes Author of Meet the Commodores Sunny Giovanni

    in Lifestyle

    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.

    Soultre describes poetry as her first love and the piece of her soul that was buried for years, and in its reemergence and resuscitation she discovered who she truly is all over again.
    SOULTRE, an African-American poet, spoken word artist, writer, motivational speaker and radio personality. She was born and raised on Chicago’s Southside and now resides in Peoria, IL where she is the mother of two beautiful boys. Her gift and passion for poetry and spoken expression have led her into the spoken word arena where she is described as a breath of fresh air, stunning, intelligent and awe-inspiring.

    Soultre believes that words are God-given gifts and should be used to inspire and motivate others to greatness. Her intent is to reach the hearts and souls of women and girls whose self-esteems have been tattered due to life’s circumstances no matter what they may be. Self-love is her message, which she delivers through the sassiness of her down-to-earth poetry performances.

    in Lifestyle

    Join Us for Another Great Show and and there will be Book GIVEAWAYS!!

    MEET THE AUTHOR OF NO PERFECT AFFAIR: Charmaine was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. Writing has been her passion and a positive emotional outlet since middle school. As a teen, writing in her journal allowed her to escape the negativity of her world. Around that time she also began writing her first fiction novel. She finds joy in creating unique and awe inspiring story-lines for the characters in her stories. Ingenuity and imagination is a mainstay and compass in her work.  Charmaine has a Bachelor of Arts in Family Life Education, an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education and she is currently working on her Masters Degree. Becoming a fierce advocate and supporter of troubled young women has been a goal of hers since overcoming struggles of her own as a young woman. “I believe turning a blind eye or deaf ear to our struggling youth only promotes destruction and demise. They are human. They have a voice. You’ll be surprised by what you learn from them if you just listen.” 

     Charmaine, being the wearer of many proverbial ‘hats’, is a self-publisher and the founder of Charming Gal Publications. She is the CEO and jewelry designer for Charming Gal Boutique. CEO and Pre-Kindergarten Teacher at Amazing Grace Childcare and a Motivational Speaker.
