    Jennifer Bernard LIVE - ALL OF ME & the Hot Fireman series on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes USAT best-selling author Jennifer Bernard.  Jennifer is the author of the HOT FIREMAN series and the new sexy contemporary romance book ALL OF ME.  Jennifer says this:  "It took me a while to find my true love, both personally and professionally. I grew up in a crazy, chaotic family of six. My father was a professor, my mother a poet, and neither could understand my love for romance novels. I started reading early, inhaling Nora Roberts, Victoria Holt, Georgette Heyer, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, along with Shakespeare and Anais Nin thrown in for variety. I graduated from Harvard University with a degree in History and Literature. I wanted to major in Creative Writing, but those students were supercool and I confess I was a geek. I knew I had to write. After college I worked for Macmillan Publishing in New York, where I wrote copy for yearly encyclopedia updates. Yes, it was writing, but I wanted to try something different. The something different turned out to be living on a fishing island in Maine. To fill the long winter nights, I began writing screenplays with my college roommate. And so my quirky career began."   http://jenniferbernard.net.  THIS IS A LIVE INTERVIEW - CALL 347-633-9609 TO JOIN US.

    Acclaimed Travel Writer, Pico Iyer on The Art of Stillness

    in Self Help

    Sister Jenna welcomes travel writer Pico Iyer on the America Meditating Radio Show!  Why might a lifelong traveler like Pico Iyer who has journeyed from Easter Island to Ethiopia, Cuba to Kathmandu, think that sitting quietly in a room might be the ultimate adventure? Because in our madly accelerating world, our lives are crowded, chaotic and noisy. There’s never been a greater need to slow down, tune out and give ourselves permission to be still.


    Pico Iyer was born in England, to parents from India, and was educated at Eton, Oxford and Harvard. He began his career documenting a neglected aspect of travel -- the sometimes surreal disconnect between local tradition and imported global pop culture. He has written 12 books, exploring also the cultural consequences of isolation, whether writing about the exiled spiritual leaders of Tibet or the embargoed society of Cuba.


    Pico’s latest focus is on another overlooked aspect of travel: how can it help us regain our sense of stillness and focus in a world where our devices and digital networks increasing distract us? He is a contributor to many magazines, writer of screenplays and liner-notes and introductions to 40 other books. His newest book is, "The Art of Stillness."  Visit http://picoiyerjourneys.com and watch Ted Talk on the Art of Stillness.

    Author Michael Brent Collings Novelist, Screenwriter, and Writing Instructor

    in Lifestyle

    Michaelbrent Collings is an internationally bestselling novelist, a #1 bestseller in the U.S., and has been one of Amazon's top selling horror writers for years. He is one of the most successful indie horror writers in the United States, as well as a produced screenwriter and member of the WGA, HWA, and several other writing groups with cool-sounding letters. He's also a martial artist, and cooks awesome waffles ('cause he's macho like that).

    He published his first "paying" work - a short story for a local paper - at the age of 15. He won numerous awards and scholarships for creative writing while at college, and subsequently became the person who had more screenplays advance to quarterfinals and semifinals in the prestigious Nicholl Fellowship screenwriting competition in a single year than anyone else in the history of the competition. 

    His first produced script, Barricade, was made into a movie starring Eric McCormack of TV's Will & Grace and Perception, and was released in 2012. Michaelbrent also wrote the screenplay for Darkroom (2013), starring Kaylee DeFer (Gossip Girl, Red State) and Elisabeth Rohm (American Hustle, Law & Order, Heroes). 

    As a novelist, Michaelbrent has written enough bestsellers that listing them seems weird, especially since they're already listed elsewhere on the website. In addition, he has also written dozens of non-fiction articles which have appeared in periodicals on several continents. 

    Michaelbrent is also a member of the WGA (Writers Guild of America) and the HWA (Horror Writers of America). In addition to selling, optioning, and doing rewrites on screenplays for major Hollywood production companies, he is currently developing several movies and television shows.
