    Indie Books #84 (Grier Cooper)

    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 


    Author Grier Cooper joins me this week to talk about her book: Wish, (Indigo Dreams Series Book 1)


    For Indigo Stevens, ballet classes at Miss Roberta’s ballet studio offer the stability and structure that are missing from her crazy home life. At almost 16, she hopes this is the year she will be accepted into the New York School of Ballet so she can begin her ballet dance career. First she must prove she’s ready, and that means ignoring Jesse Sanders, the cute boy with dimples who is definitely at the top of Miss Roberta’s List of Forbidden Things for Dancers.


    But Jesse is the least of Indigo’s concerns. When she discovers her mom is an alcoholic, it simultaneously explains everything and heaps more worry on Indigo’s shoulders. As her mom’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic, Indigo fights to maintain balance, protect her younger brothers from abuse, and keep her mother from going over the edge. But life with an alcoholic parent is unpredictable. When the violence at home escalates, Indigo realizes she can no longer dance around the issue. At the risk of losing everything, she must take matters into her own hands before it’s too late.

    Milling About with Ted Neeley

    in Entertainment

    It's been 42 years since the original cast and crew of the 1973 film Jesus Chris Superstar have all been in the same room together, and tonight (April 27), Director Norman Jewison, Ted Neeley (Jesus,) Yvonne Elliman (Mary Magdalene,) Barry Dennen (Pontius Pilate,) and Josh Mostel (King Herod); to name a few, will reunite for a special screening at the Beekman theater in New York City.


    Getting the band back together so to speak would've happened much sooner for Ted whose boundless enthusiasm for what he calls his life-changing role has never left. He tells host Robin Milling, “I've been trying to get this reunion to happen since the film came out. I've been trying to get all of us together to do another production; if nothing else just to hang out for a few days. It's never happened until now. And the fact that we'll all be in the same place at the same time with Norman is a miracle!”


    Miracles have been known to happen in the life of Jesus Christ, but it almost didn't happen for Ted who reveals he almost missed out on being cast in the iconic role. He also tells Robin how he met his wife of over 40 years, Leeyan Granger on the set and how their two children have been happily following dad's adventures as a superstar.


    Most actors run from one role defining their legacy but Ted has embraced Jesus, still performing the role wherever and whenever he can; most recently touring Italy for a year. He says joyfully, “It completely changed my life, spiritually, personally. So why slap that in the face? And I still love it; every performance is like the first time all over again. That music starts to play and I just lift off the ground, 'ok take me wherever you want me to go!”

    Author Michael Sears discusses his books and Wall Street experience LIVE

    in Books

    "BLACK FRIDAYS is not an autobiographical novel, but the world of Wall Street is one I know well, having worked there for over twenty years. I was a Managing Director in the bond trading and underwriting divisions of Paine Webber, and later, Jefferies & Co. Like my character, Jason Stafford, I was the first from my class at Columbia Business School to become a Managing Director. Before returning to graduate school, I supported myself in a variety of ways while pursuing a career as a professional actor working with the Shakespeare Theatre of Washington, the New Jersey Shakespeare Festival as well as in films and on television."   Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes highly award-author Michael Sears to the studio.  For more on Michael, please visit his website at http://www.michaelsears.com/.

    Fully Persuaded About Starting Over & Moving Forward w/ Bishop Freddie Marshall

    in Motivation

    If you've ever wondered about starting over and moving forward in any area of our life, this is the show for you!


    Bishop Freddie B. Marshall

    For 25 years  he has lead the Christ Cathedral Church of Deliverance as it's founding and senior pastor. Building lives and securing spiritual legacy and identity through the preaching and teaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. By being an example of endurance and restoration , Bishop Freddie B. Marshall  preaches a strong and declarative message of Grace and repentance, admonishing all to embrace their individual process  of growth, maturity and awareness in Christ.

    As a man of faith, Bishop is an example that if you believe God, you are assured to receive whatever you expect. His time as a student in the local school systems of Winston-Salem Forsyth County School System, his alma mater North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC and the recipient of several earned and honorary degrees, certifications and recognitions has prepared him to remain a relevant voice to the Kingdom across several decades of church leadership and transition. As a trained and educated episcopate he is an apostolic voice of preparation, a proficient Catechist who is sought after nationwide as an instructor, trainer and mentor.  The Bishop has been  and continues to be invited internationally as a  voice that matters to this generation.

    He is presently preparing to begin his new life with his fiancé  Ms. Azaviea S. Brown, who has brought healing and wholeness into his life and that of his family and ministries. They will marry in November of 2015. He is proud of his sons who are all ministry servant-leaders and his god-daughters who have all developed their own relationships and identities with The Lord and the Church of Jesus Christ.
