    Gangster Sonny is the big man in the Bronx neighborhood of an Italian small boy named Calogero. A shooting witnessed by the boy (nicknamed C) is the starting point of a lasting bond between the gangster and the boy. Father (bus driver Lorenzo), however, disapproves.

When C falls for an African American girl, things don't get any easier. C's leap to manhood is marked by tragedy, but also by his recognition of the many faces of love.

    Yes, You Can Do That!

    in Business

    Denise Griffitts Interviews Kimanzi Constable


    I first interviewed author Kimanzi Constable in November of 2012 on Your Partner In Success Radio. He had written and self-published a little book called "Tales of the Everyday Workingman (and Woman)" that he sold an incredible 70,000 copies of (as of that interview date.) For 12 years he worked at a job that he absolutely hated. So much so that his days were consumed with thoughts of quitting. But as a family man with a wife and children to support, that was just not an option.


    Things came to a breaking point in the summer of 2011. He was over $180,000 in debt, his marriage was falling apart, and his children barely knew him because he was always working. The cherry on the cake was that he was 170 pounds overweight.


    In the back of his mind he had a dream of being a writer. How could that be possible, a guy with no college degree become a writer? More than that, he wanted freedom!


    Three years ago Kimanzi finally got fed up enough to stop existing and to do something about his dream. He decided to stop listening to all those things keeping him from a life that he and his family truly deserved.


    Today he is a contributing writer for The Huffington Post, Entrepreneur Magazine, and Mind Body Green. He is a business editor at The Good Men Project. His mission is to help men and women create true freedom in life.


    Today we are going to pick up the threads on Kimanzi's tale and find out how he lost 170 pounds and moved his family to Maui, Hawaii. We are going to find out how he came so far, so fast, and how you can as well. Yes, you can do that!

    There may be no greater loss than losing one’s ability to make sense of the real world. From Tragedy to Triumph is a tale of an incredible journey. It traces a path of young girl growing up in a humble Irish background to becoming a mother, a wife, and successful businesswomen only to have it all dashed by a terrible brain trauma that left her in the grips of confusion and terror. Against the backdrop of her life across continents; this is a story of one woman’s triumph against the odds. It involves a multiplicity of human dramas with each character playing an integral role. Supported by amazing jazz and theater personalities, her family and dearest friends Taylor tells a story of her terrible ordeal and the suffering of those who loved her. It also tells of her quest for justice in one of Canada's most protracted civil cases that provided little recompense for her years of suffering and losses.

    In this short, 15 minute podcast, Bob shares with you his insights and lessons learned from several trips to Hell and back.


    Today’s show features a discussion on how gaining and maintaining sobriety is a scorched earth process. The one seeking recovery needs to give up their favorite coping techinque, social support networks and leisure activities just to get "healthy."


    Although sobriety is a goal, for may who suffer from addictions, they know all to well the price that is needing to be paid. A little compassion and understanding from the rest of you (and us) goes a long want in securing a sober future.

    Gail Pallotta,Vanessa Riley,June Foster, and Connie Almony-The Fairy Tale Series

    in Books

    The Fairy Tale Series - from Gail Pallotta


    Mildred Colvin’s son, Jonathan, suggested his mother and each of her critique partners write a fairy tale and self-publish them.


    We all agreed, saying we’d be there for each other if any of us got stuck during the process.


    Mildred, who’s self-published over twenty books, spearheaded the effort. Vanessa Riley, who’s a talented designer as well as writer, volunteered to create a cover for each story.   


    We’re a laid-back group, so no one set rules about which fairy tales we chose or what direction we took with the retelling. We wanted and needed to make them consistent though.


    First we discussed length and decided on novellas. Considering several options on how to tie them all together, we chose the location. June Foster had already started her story in a town called Fairwilde. We all agreed to put our characters there, but instead of having them in a particular town and state, we created Fairwilde Kingdom. I think this was important because it gave us a way to use more than one setting for our stories. Vanessa suggested the same size for the covers along with a title, sub-title and series name. We call each book A Fairwilde Reflection Novella.


    We started writing and critiquing immediately. Working in our fantasy worlds for a year brought us lots of joy. We hope the novellas will do the same for our readers.


    First out was At the Edge of a Dark Forest, a retelling of Beauty and the Beast by Connie Almony; next, Red and the Wolf, a version of Little Red Riding Hood by June Foster; third, Mirror on the Fall, an adaptation of Snow White by Mildred Colvin; fourth, Swept Away, a twist on Cinderella by Vanessa Riley and lastly Mountain of Love and Danger.
