    The Author Chat Show with Lynda D. Brown

    in Books

    Author Tiffany Campbell joins us to discuss her book, Scared of Beautiful. This is Tiffany's first appearance on the Author Chat Show.

    About the book:

    To be an aspiring photographer, the thought of beauty strikes fear in a young Bobbi Cochran; a fear that had paralyzed her since losing her love to her very best friend. Her world became dark, the hatred she felt in her heart plaguing her relationships with people and even the view she had of herself. Needing a fresh start, she relocates to California where a collision with a young and equally fearful Donovan McCall, changes the course of her life forever. Love was a word and an emotion that was non-existent in Donovan's world. He lived the selfish lifestyle of a young entrepreneur, owning a tattoo shop in West Hollywood. Women were magnets to his good looks, success and charm making it easy to maneuver around any emotion before it turned into something more. Women were disposable. He was never challenged, and when he was , she was replaced. It isn't until he runs into a rude Bobbi Cochran, that everything he had become so accustomed to turned foreign. Love and the art of it all was something both wanted to devour into but the fear of the beauty within was holding them back. Will they let go and allow love to take control? What are they so afraid of?

    Let's Talk Too! Author Daniel N. Collins

    in Books

    I'm your host

    Author Sharnel


    Daniel N. Collins,

    He was born on September 4th 1975 in Newark NJ, but he was raised in Elizabeth NJ. Elizabeth is where he first put the pen to the paper in the 11th grade. Daniel has moved on since then and published his first poem in 2002 in a book called "Flood of Contentment", and with this he received the editors choice award for his poem called "moving on".
    Today Daniel N Collins has published two books of his own called "The soul Vs Flesh" / Life 2 Lyrics, which even has a sequel called "The Soul Vs Flesh" / Lyrics 4 Life. The Soul Vs Flesh is a series and a collection of events that has happened in Daniels life put together in a lyrical display. What Daniel did was give his flesh its own voice and his soul it's own voice and let them talk amongst each other round after round as he sits in the middle and tries not to add a bias opinion. The Soul Vs Flesh is basically Daniels own spiritual warfare put into lyrical form. What's intriguing about Daniels first book is that it was written on a blackberry tour in a span of eight months. Daniel fervently writes about life as he sees it so he needs an electrical device within an arms reach at all times. Daniel is an exemplary writer but is also inspired by other writers as well such as Langston Hughes, Tupac Shakoor,  D H Lawrence,  Dr Cornel West, and Lil Wayne. Daniel is a true renaissance man, he enjoys Jazz, Hip Hop,and  R&B.
    Daniel enjoys reading or siting in silence listing to his heart as he plagiarizes what his mind tells him to write.  Over all Daniel is an outside of the box kind of guy and the best quote to describe him is one by Brian Tracey and says "Nothing great has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstances".
