    in Entertainment

    Jonathan Chase stars as Sam on Tyler Perry's "Love Thy Neighbor" on OWN. As his name indicates, actor Jonathan Chase moved to Los Angeles from his native Boca Raton, Florida to pursue his dreams of becoming an actor. Hard work and determination have transformed these dreams into a reality as a star on "Love Thy Neighbor." This marks Chase's second collaboration with Tyler Perry Studios as he most recently wrapped "A Madea Christmas" which is intended for a December release. He has been seen in a succession of other films including "Gamer" opposite Gerard Butler as Michael C. Hall's henchman; the thriller "Eagle Eye" with Shai Labeouf, "7eventy 5ive," the comedy "All About Steve" with Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper, the cult horror film "Gingerdead Man," and the acclaimed romantic comedy "Dorfman in Love" (March 22nd). No stranger to television, Chase has guest starred on the likes of such dramas as "The Mentalist," "CSI," "CSI: NY," and "The Defenders," as well as having appeared in NBC's top-rated "Knightrider" telefilm. 


    Marlene Banks I am a novelist with a vivid imagination and passionate admiration of the well written word. My love of Jesus, The Christ and rich storytelling has produced an eager wordsmith-gone-wild. To write for the Kingdom is a humbling honor that I do not take lightly. I love writing tales that demonstrate God's hand in our lives. I get a great deal of satisfaction crafting stories that explore the psychology of why people are who they are and do what they do. I can make it simple and uncomplicated or complex and multilayered but I usually weave relational plots that engage the natural with the spiritual.

    DERRICK WORSLEY MAN ACTOR BUSINESSMAN ROLE MODEL

    in Radio

    Derrick Worsley grew up with a father in the Army, which acclimated him somewhat to the military lifestyle as a child. However, it was never consciously engrained that he would follow in his father’s footsteps, nor did he have an understanding of the sacrifices involved in participating in the military. When his attempts at college proved unfruitful, he found that he felt a calling to join in his father’s legacy and so enlisted in the army.


    While in the army, Worsley served tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other foreign countries. It was there that he had to adapt to a variety of cultures. Worsley describes his Army experience as making him “whole” in a way that made him more mature, grounded, and responsible. It was in fact his leaders within the Army that inspired him to continue his education to what eventually constituted a Masters degree. That education was applied to entrepreneurship, which took the form of an online company, DCdiscountOutlet.com, LLC.


    As an actor he is a host of DIY Network’s “I Want That” and a recurring role on ABC’s “Nashville.” Tyler Perry’s studio brought him in for “The Have and Havenots” and he’s also done a variety of commercial work with many other projects in the pipeline. Currently, he’s working behind the scenes on Plus Size Diva’s the Musical and Movie and will also portray the character of an arrogant businessman George Lamiry.

    Getting to know author Samantha Chase, Delaney Diamond, Laura Browning

    in Writing

    New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well. With twenty-three titles currently to her name, she has no plans to slow down.


    Laura Browning after graduating from the University of Missouri School of Journalism,she worked for more than two decades in television news, both on camera and behind the scenes. It's a fascinating, exciting business. However, she always loved making up my own stories rather than reporting the stories of others. So, she changed gears and began teaching English. The altered pace allowed me to ramp up my love of writing fiction.


    Delaney was born and raised in the U.S. Virgin Islands. She has been an avid reader for as long as she can remember,  She readher first romance novel at the age of 11. Back then, they weren’t nearly as racy as they are now.


    She  wrote my first romance novel at the age of 14 and received rave reviews from my friends. She tapped out 89 pages on a typewriter and called it Captured Heart. Eighty-nine pages on a typewriter with no revisions. She couldn’t do that today. Thank goodness for Microsoft Word. In 2008 I started freelance writing, and in 2009 she gave fiction writing a try again, which resulted in my debut novel, The Arrangement.

    Colin Barrett, Jonathan Odell & Susan Wilson

    in Books

    On this episode, we'll highlight and give away two novels and a short story collection written by three acclaimed authors:



    Colin Barrett on Young Skins. A multi-award-winning debut short story collection set in the fictional, rural town of Glanbeigh, Ireland--a desolate spot where buffoonery and tension simmer and erupt, and booze-sodden boredom fills the corners of every pub and nightclub.
    Jonathan Odell on Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks League. Inspired by Odell's childhood in pre-Civil Rights Mississippi, two young mothers--one wealthy and white and the other poor and black--have only two things in common: the devastating loss of their children, and a deep and abiding loathing for one another. As their relationship and beliefs grow, so does an unexpected friendship.
    Susan Wilson on The Dog Who Saved Me. After his faithful canine partner is killed in the line of duty, Officer Cooper Harrison finds himself jobless, on the verge of divorce and in a self-destructive rut. Then he becomes an animal control officer back in his hometown, where he works to rescue a wounded and gun-shy yellow Lab gone feral.

    Hugh O'Brian: Actor and Humanitarian

    in Movies

    Hugh O'Brian, best-known for portraying legendary lawman Wyatt Earp, talks about his acting career as well as HOBY, his successful youth leardership project, in this special episode. O’Brian’s movies include such popular releases as The Shootist, Ten Little Indians, Come Fly with Me, and Twins. With the help of his lovely wife, Virginia, he’s also written a memoir titled Hugh O’Brian, or What’s Left of Him -- just in time to celebrate his 90th birthday on April 19! One of the few remaining classic Western stars, O'Brian has amazing stories of an era in entertainment that there soon will be too few who can share in first person. Friends, family and fans have been encouraging Hugh to finish his autobiography for several years.  The book chronicles many never before published stories about Marilyn Monroe, the Marine Corps, living at the House of Seven Garbos, meeting Albert Schweitzer, and being shot between the eyes on the set of The Shootist because the director wanted a film shot without interruption, which wouldn’t allow for the use of a stuntman. O’Brian’s impressive showbiz resume includes 7 Broadway shows, 33 films and 450 television shows. He has a well-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a Golden Globe Award.   


    Virginia O’Brian, film historian James Colt Harrison, and Classic Movie Guide founder Diana Saenger will also participate in this celebration of Hugh O’Brian’s upcoming 90th birthday. Happy Birthday, Hugh!
