    ANYTHING GOES Lindsay Downs

    in Pop Culture

    Bennet Pomerantz talks to media guests on the Betty Award winning ANYTHING GOES. His guest tonight is author Lindsay Downs


    I've been an avid readers ever since I was old enough to hold a red leather bound first edition copy of Sir Walter Scott's The Lady of the Lake in my lap.
    So it only seemed natural at some point in my life I take up pen and paper to start writing. Over time my skills slightly improved which I attribute to my English teachers. 
    My breakthrough came about in the mid 1970's when I read a historical romance written by Sergeanne Golon, Angelique. This French husband and wife team opened my eyes to the real world of fiction. Stories about romance, beautiful damsels, handsome heroes and plots which kept me hooked. Of course, being a man, I had to keep my reading hidden from others as that wasn't appropriate reading for men.
    With this new found appreciation of the written word I took up other books and devoured them as a starving person would a plate of food. I them attempted to write again. I still wasn't satisfied so I put it aside for years as other events entered my life.



    Finally, in the early years of the new millennium I tried again to write and once again met with limited success. At least now I was able to get past the first page or two. Then, in 2006 a life changing event brought me back to my love, I took a job as a security officer. This allowed me plenty of time to read different genres. 
    My favourite was regency. As I poured through everyone I could get my hands on I knew this could be something I wanted to attempt.



    Since 2012 when my debut regency romantic suspense released I was hooked and have, except for a few contemporaries, focused on this genre.



    Since 2012 I've lived in central Texas. I'm also a member of Romance Writers of America and their local chapter.

    ANYTHING GOES Debbie Druzy

    in Pop Culture

    Bennet Pomerantz talks to media guests on the Betty Award winning ANYTHING GOES. His guest tonight is author Debra Druzy


     


    a mom  who writes sweet ’n spicy contemporary romantic fiction in between running errands and doing household chores. With her terrible penmanship, writing a novel was never Debra’s lifelong dream. However, as a little girl she loved playing with her mother’s old typewriter, and she did pretty good in typing class in high school. When she grew up, she got a job in NYC where she did a lot of typing and spent a lot of hours commuting via the Long Island Railroad. To pass the time, she read a lot of books. All sorts of books. Syfy. Horror. Women’s Fiction.


     


    She quickly realized Romance was her favorite—the steamier the better. All that reading gave her the big idea to write her own story, putting her overactive imagination and suspicious mind to work, playing out the possibilities of what-ifs.


     


    So… she came home from work one day, sat in front a blank document on her computer, and attempted her first novel. It was awful but that didn’t stop her. In 2011, she joined the RWA and LIRW, where she met like-minded writers at all levels of experience. At the LIRW Annual Luncheon in May 2014, Debra pitched SLEEPING WITH SANTA to the Editor-in-Chief of The Wild Rose Press, and a few months later was offered a contract; the book released in time for Christmas 2014.


     


    Her second story, DARE ME, a Valentine’s day novella, will be out February 1, 2016, and is available now for pre-order on Amazon and other online bookstores.

    ANYTHING GOES Elizabeth Kirke

    in Entertainment

    Writer/critic Bennet Pomerantz discusses subjects with authors and artists on The Betty Award winning ANYTHING GOES . His guest for the FINAL ANYTHING GOES of 2015 is Elizabeth Kirke


    Elizabeth Kirke wanted to be an author before she even knew what an author was. She used to say that she wanted to be an artist, but that was only because she was too young to write and had to tell stories with pictures instead. She hasn't stopped writing since she learned how. It wasn't long before she dreamed of becoming an author and couldn't be happier now that that dream is a reality.


    If she isn't writing...well, let's be honest; if she isn't writing she's probably on Facebook thinking that she should start writing. But, if she isn't writing or on Facebook, she's probably doing something involving books, baking, gardening, or yarn. In an ideal world, she'd be reading and knitting while something from the garden is in the oven. Then again, in an ideal world, she'd have a flock of ducks and a couple of goats.


    Like most slightly-nosy, avid readers, Elizabeth can't resist trying to catch a peek at books she sees people reading when out in public to see if she can figure out what it is. While doing just that one day, she realized that it would probably be the coolest-thing-ever if she caught a complete stranger reading one of her books. That's her new dream.

    ANYTHING GOES KB Miller

    in Pop Culture

     


    Writer/critic Bennet Pomerantz discusses subjects with authors and artists on The Betty Award winning ANYTHING GOES Tonight's guest is KB MILLER


     


    Author, K.B. Miller is a proud native of Baltimore, Maryland. Currently, she resides in a tiny valley, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Pennsylvania along with her husband and son (both Steelers fans - eww!), her energetic puppy - Cullen Edward, and her mouthy blue front Amazon Parrot, Poppy.


    K.B. is a huge football nut! That's right fellas, she's a DIE-HARD Ravens fan living in Pennsylvania! How's that for ballsy?


    She's been writing for as long as she can remember, but two years ago her loving husband- who believed in her talent, finally gave her a gentle push... actually, according to her, it was really more like a kick... in the lower back-upper thigh region. She claims it hurt. After a few restless nights she decided to allow everyone to meet all of the crazy characters in her head, and here we are.


    K.B. has, as her family calls it, a ridiculous addiction to hats, shoes, sunglasses, owls, and coffee. No problems there, right? That's what she said.


    Welcome to K.B.-land, it's a lot like Disneyland only without all the endless lines, unnaturally happy people, and it doesn't cost you an arm and a leg to enter!

    Who Has Saved You?

    in Christianity

    Who saves lives is the question many doctors and even strangers has been looked upon as heros for saving a human life. But life is like a vapor it can come and go in this world, but is it that the end? Jesus save lives in this world and the world to come. We die here a physical death and never seen again on the earth but when we die spiritual it is unto our natural lives yet we live again Many are walking around dead because they have not accepted Jesus as their Lord and savior him that gives life. Today only Jesus is the giver of life. We have life if we have the son of God and our lives are hidden in him
