    La Literati welcomes three talented writers and friends to our show

    in Books

    Join Niles and Tosha as we spotlight the work of three talented writers and celebrate the beauty of their words. 


     Debra (D.S.) Levy is a writer of short stories, flash fiction, and essays. She's had work published in the Alaska Quarterly Review, Columbia, Little Fiction, The Pinch, and others. Although she's never considered herself a "poet," she believes that whatever she's writing has always begun with a poet's concerns -- concision, compression, sound, and the desire to capture moments of being. Since blogging at C-Dog & Company, she has begun (shyly) to share some of her free verse.


     


    Geetha Balvannanathan Prodhom is an Indian writer born within a multicultural family and raised between India, Tunisia, Europe and the Middle East. She writes poetry in English, French and Arabic and has published a collection of French poems in 2011 with another collection of poetry in English to be published in 2016. A fervent admirer of the Japanese art of Tanka and Haiku since 2010 and writing her own Haikus in English, French and Italian since 2014, she also writes short novels in English and in French on the themes of human feelings and interaction. She is currently working on a manuscript in English depicting the varied life she led.


     


    Christian Marc is a writer and blogger born in New Jersey, who lived in L.A., but is currently moving to Seattle. He is a two time recipient of the Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence.

    Power of Perception writers with Derek Vasconi

    in Spirituality

    Derek Vasconi was raised in Sharon, Pennsylvania, a small town near Pittsburgh, PA. He didn't stay there for very long, as after graduating from high school, he co-founded the metal band, From A Second Story Window, and went on tour for most of his early 20's. In 2006, Derek made the decision to move on from the band and pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Human Development, which he achieved, at Penn State University. After doing this, he went to Japan to live on and off for the next five years, and life has never been the same for him since. Derek has accomplished a myriad of things in his life, including founding a traditional, independent book publishing company, creating an iphone app (eMobo, which brought the Japanese cell phone novels, or "keitai shousetsu," to the Western world), and now, has pursued writing himself. His first book, KAI, showcases Derek's passion for both Japan and horror, as he blends them seamlessly in an unforgettable and jaw-dropping debut book about one girl from Hiroshima who wants to destroy the world. Additionally, Derek is currently working on several more horror novels, and when he's not writing, he spends his time hopelessly devoted to all things otaku, listening to JPOP music, and hanging out with his little daughter and pet cat, Gachapin, who hates all humanity.

    Power of Perception writers with Elgon Williams

    in Spirituality

    Born in Springfield, Ohio, Elgon Williams grew up on a farm near the town of South Charleston and the village of Selma in rural southeastern Clark County, "...about two miles from nowhere and between cornfields."

    Williams graduated from Shawnee High School in 1974. In the fall of that year he began studies at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. In 1978 he received receiving a BA in Mass Communication. Later in 1981 he received a degree in Marketing Administration from The University of Texas in Austin.

    He joined the US Air Force in 1983 and attended the Defense Language Institute at the Presidio of Monterey in California where he studied Chinese Mandarin. Upon completion of military training he spent two years assigned to the Far East.

    After returning to the US, Williams left the military and began an extended career in management for several major retailers. Periodically, he also served as a vendor advocate for a national marketing firm representing many computer technology and software companies. He has also worked in advertising, sales and as a computer technician and technology consultant.

    Although his early writing is considered sci-fi and fantasy, it is difficult to pigeonhole his work into any single genre. His most recent work is considered urban fantasy or magical realism.

    Tune in to the live show using any smart phone or computer. You can also call in and listen or comment at 773-897-6501. To become a guest on The FabLife Radio Show, use our Online Guest Submission Form.

    power of perception writers with RC and JP Carter

    in Spirituality

    RC & JP Carter (Chris & Joan to their friends) have been married for almost forty years. They have five daughters, one son and thirteen grandchildren. Chris has been a full time air traffic controller for the last 27 years. Both Chris and Joan were also actively involved in Christian ministry for 20 years before retiring. They served as both associate pastors and pastors of their own church. They ministered deliverance to many people during that time. Even now during their paranormal investigations, they are often called upon to cleanse and anoint homes and sometimes the people living there.


    Joan first saw apparitions at an early age growing up in Massachusetts. She was always told that ghosts were not real, which didn’t stop the spirits from making themselves known. Chris was exposed to the paranormal with a UFO experience when he was young in Illinois. Now they both enjoy doing paranormal investigations in residential and public buildings when called upon.


    During their ministry they wrote many plays and skits. They took a troop of performers throughout southern California performing in churches and dinner theaters. Since they had a large family many of their vacations were full of adventure and misadventure. When they would return home from a vacation they would regale people with stories of their travels. People constantly told them “you should write a book”. Now many years later they decided to do just that.


    Their first three novels, The O’Rourke Series, are mysteries. These books have both strong male and female characters. In this series of books old school detectives solve hi-tech crime. The O’Rourke team are diligent, loyal, fearless, honest and hard-working people. They are the stuff America is made of.


    Book four of the O’Rourke Series is currently on the drawing board. .

    Power of Perception writers with Dylan Callens

    in Spirituality

    Dylan Callens came up with the core idea for Operation Cosmic Teapot
    while in university.  Back then, he was writing a terrible, terrible
    book with no discernible plot and characters that were flatter than
    stick figures on a piece of paper.  From that travesty; however, the
    image of God being unable to perform his duties as a result of too much
    paperwork, stuck in his mind.  Years later, he imagined Nietzsche as
    God's boss.  Of course, Nietzsche desperately wanted to fire God because
    of a lifelong grudge.

    Only six years after that kernal, the book was popped.  Sure, it could
    have been done in a year or two, but he is pretty lazy.  The point is,
    Operation Cosmic Teapot was done.  Finally.

    Other than that, Dylan grew up in Delhi, Ontario.  From a young age, he
    was always interested in writing; however, in high school, his interests
    were focused more towards music.  He dreamed of being famous in a heavy
    metal band named Nothing Sacred.  Unfortunately, the band wasn't all
    that good, so fame and fortune never transpired.

    Afterwards, Dylan moved to Sudbury, Ontario to attend Laurentian
    University.  While attending, he wrote for the university paper, Lambda,
    as a columnist, then news editor.  He watched as the paper fell to shit
    due to the brilliant decisions of an idiot edit-in-chief (not Norm, the
    other guy!).  Because of that, he left to become the Program Director at
    CKLU radio.  Somewhere in there, Dylan was able to graduate with a
    degree in English and philosophy.

    With such a heavy demand for philosophers in the workplace, Dylan
    decided to attend teacher's college.  He found a job teaching in
    Sudbury, where he continues to live with his family
