"Ship of Souls!" Author, Dr. Zetta Elliot, will talk to Dr. Weldon M. McWilliams on The Gist of Freedom, Sunday February 26 at 6pm. Zetta will discuss her wonderful books, Ship of Souls, Birds and A Wish After Midnight" Review ~ Some authors are writers while others are storytellers. I think this short novel attests to Elliott’s skills as both. The events flow flawlessly, without contradictions or miscues. Historic elements are woven into the story from the American Revolution to 9/11 which speak to the presence of so many ethnic groups in the creation of America and the historic misinterpretation of their contribution. Water, trees and birds are magical elements of nature that serve as portals between the physical world and other dimensions. And then there’s Nyla and Keem, two supporting characters who are developed so well that we cannot help but wonder what more will happen to them, alone and/or together.
At the top of the show host Cyrus Webb welcomes back author Zetta Elliott to Conversations LIVE to discuss her new book SHIP OF SOULS. Then at 15 min. past the hour, Webb talks with recording artist Patrice MucCular about her ministry of music and new single.
