    The Method & The Muse featuring Bren McClain

    in Books

    Writers, are you stuck or blocked-- or inspired, on a roll and tearin' it up? Is your latest accomplishment publicizing your most recent bestseller, finishing the 265th revision of your first poem, or just making the commitment to writing? Whatever your state of mind, The Method & The Muse is the show for you.


    This month's episode features Bren McClain.


    She is a 27-year-overnight-success. That’s how long it took for her to publish a novel. She wrote one and got an agent but failed to find a publisher. She wrote a second, which failed – her mom died and Bren was a mess and so was the book. But that was a novel that celebrated motherhood, something she really wanted to hold up to the light, so she found a way to make it work. ONE GOOD MAMA BONE was born. Its home? Pat Conroy’s new fiction imprint, Story River Books. Publication is set for early 2017.


    Her social media presence (website http://www.brenmcclain.com, Monday Moo-ings blog, Facebook, Twitter) is centered on animals and has garnered her connections all over the world, including several farm sanctuaries.

    The Method & The Muse featuring Kathleen Cosgrove

    in Books

    Writers, are you stuck or blocked-- or inspired, on a roll and tearin' it up? Is your latest accomplishment publicizing your most recent bestseller, finishing the 265th revision of your first poem, or just making the commitment to writing? Whatever your state of mind, The Method & The Muse is the show for you.


    This month's episode features Author Kathleen Cosgrove. She lives in Murfreesboro Tennessee but spent the first thirty years of her life in Miami Florida where having a sense of humor is nothing short of a survival skill. Her wit is deeply rooted in the absurd, and the wild characters she creates may seem unbelievable to the rest of the country but are your typical neighbors. Some of her reviewers compare her unique style to those of Janet Evanovich and Carl Hiaasen with a unique voice that is unmistakably her own brand of funny.

    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.
