    Interview with Ann Hite, Award Winning Author of Three Novels and a Novella

    in Books

    Please join us! Joy Radio will be interviewing award winning author Ann Hite on January 8, 11 AM, ET, to discuss her newest novel, Where The Souls Go.


    At the age of ten, Annie Todd finds not only is her mother quite mad but that Annie has inherited an unusual legacy. The ghost of a young girl visits Annie in her new home deep in the mountains of Western North Carolina, where Annie’s mother, Grace Jean, has hidden them away from the life they used to know. Annie finds an unlikely ally in Pearl, a young woman who keeps house in Annie’s new home. The secrets that surround Pearl take Annie’s mind off her loneliness and soon her family history is revealed to her.  This book follows three generations of the Pritchard family, not only telling the story of how Hobbs Pritchard became the villain of Black Mountain, but highlighting women’s struggles in Appalachia, beginning in the Depression Era and ending in the mid-sixties.


    Ann Hite is the award winning author of three novels and a novella. Her latest book, Where The Souls Go, was published by Mercer University Press in September 2015. Her debut novel, Ghost On Black Mountain, became a Townsend Prize Finalist and won Georgia Author of the Year in 2012. Ann is a confessed book junkie who lives in Marietta, Georgia.

    Children's Book Author Bruce Coville on ETs for Children

    in Books

    How do you have to think unconventionally to write great stories for children? Join us as children's book author Bruce Coville talks about extraterrestrials and other oddities for kids.


    Bruce Coville was born in Syracuse, New York, in 1950. His family lived in farm territory north of Syracuse and he grew up around the corner from his grandparents’ dairy farm, where he spent a great deal of time dodging cows and chores as well as he was able. As a young reader he loved Mary Poppins and Dr. Dolittle, but also read lots of things people consider junk (Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, Tom Swift, and zillions of comic books). 


    In 1978 he published his first book, The Foolish Giant, a picture book illustrated by his wife, Katherine. Since then he has published over 100 books for children and young adults, from picture books to young adult novels. Among his best known titles are My Teacher Is an Alien, Into the Land of the Unicorns, and Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher. His work has appeared in 16 languages, and won children's choice awards in numerous states. 


    A frequent speaker at schools and conferences, Bruce has 3 times been opening or closing keynoter for the national conference of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. He travels the world to speak in schools, and has presented at American or International Schools in Sao Paolo, London, Madrid, Shanghai, Delhi, Seoul, and many others.


    In addition to his writing, in 2001 Bruce founded FULL CAST AUDIO, an audiobook publishing company devoted to producing full cast, unabridged recordings of great children's books. He has produced over a hundred audiobooks, frequently also directing or performing. 


    Bruce lives in  Syracuse, New York, with his wife, author and illustrator Katherine Coville.

    Eternity in their Hearts -- Write Stuff -- 2/9/2016

    in Entertainment

    I think missionaries don't receive as much credit as they need to. After all, most missionaries leave their homes to go into other countries to spread the Good News. Some people find themselves in cultures that are vastly different from the ones they left. 


    In particular, there are those individuals who go on missions to places where there isn't a drop of running water in sight. The people they are trying to reach congregate themselves as tribes with rituals and customs we in the developed world may find strange, unusual, and downright horrific. 

    The modernized world would say these people do not need religion to mess up their way of life. They've existed like this for a long and don't need our help. Yet Jesus commanded us to go into the entire world and preach the gospel. Why?

    Join me as I chat with Carole McDonnell, author the tribal fantasy Wind Follower. You can call in at 646-668-8485, press 1 to be live on air. Or you can click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/8281109. TUNE IN!
