SORT BY Relevancy
There was a time, when talking about politics, was taboo. Today, it is common place to read, or hear about one political view or another; expressed openly; and in some case violently. With so many political scandals being revealed, one tends to wonder what else is being covered up; and in the name of “Diplomacy” of all things. We, as a nation, have given a lot of power, to a few people. People we trust to make “right decisions”, for the good of the country; are those the only decisions being made…”right decisions”? “Too much power in the wrong hands”, can cause chaos. What about “too much power” in the right hands? Good intentions, don’t always deliver good results; then what about “bad intentions”. Politics, Scandals, Greed, Power, Violence; how do we begin figuring it all out? Tonight we’ll tackle “Political Thrillers”. We welcome back “Movie Maven” Ms. Karen D.” to give us her spin on the four, politically based, films up for review!

What actually constitutes a "Thriller"? Adventure? Action? Mystery? Page-turning ratios?
Browse around your local B&N (while you still can) and you might notice that the Horror section has dwindled to one or two bookshelves, while Thrillers and Fantasy novels can fill two or three aisles. It's clear that the Horror label is considered a minus to marketing mavens in the publishing industry, and yet--the Thriller and fantasy sections are chock full of -- horror books!
Hmmm. So what's the real deal? Join us this Wednesday at 8pm Eastern for a riveting, spine-tingling, bone-chilling, ________ (insert your own thriller cliche here), look at what makes a Thriller…a Thriller.
Topic: Fitting Into Your Genre
As a child, Rob Kaufman was always fascinated by the stories recited by those around him and the words used to tell them. As he got older, his need to tell his own stories grew, as did his ability to share them in exciting and captivating ways. However, he wanted to share more than just stories. His primary desire was to create characters with whom people could relate, while at the same time bringing them through a journey from which most would crumble.
His degree in Psychology was the first step toward getting beneath the surface of the people in his life. What followed was a lifelong search for what makes people tick - what forces them to become evil when deep down in their heart of hearts, they are yearning for love. Rob's characters walk this search with him, deep into the human psyche, creating psychological thrillers from every day events.
Rob's first book "In the Shadow of Stone" continues to receive great praise and is selling well in both electronic and paperback formats. His current book, "One Last Lie" is much darker than his first, with characters who hold bits and pieces of strangers he's known, friends he's had and lunatics he's only read about.
"This book hits home for me," says Rob, who has been with his partner for 25 years. "There were a few pages that made me laugh out loud as I wrote them... and many that made me cry. And the great thing is, I'm finding that many readers of this book are experiencing the same emotions."
Through social and other media, Rob hopes to get "One Last Lie" into the hands of millions, so that they, too, can experience the ups, downs, twists, turns and final tragedy that has helped make this book a Five-Star contender.

"BLACK FRIDAYS is not an autobiographical novel, but the world of Wall Street is one I know well, having worked there for over twenty years. I was a Managing Director in the bond trading and underwriting divisions of Paine Webber, and later, Jefferies & Co. Like my character, Jason Stafford, I was the first from my class at Columbia Business School to become a Managing Director. Before returning to graduate school, I supported myself in a variety of ways while pursuing a career as a professional actor working with the Shakespeare Theatre of Washington, the New Jersey Shakespeare Festival as well as in films and on television."
