SORT BY Relevancy
I’m a Middle School Language Arts Teacher from Lavallette, New Jersey, who leaps out of bed each morning ready to greet my eighty 12-14 year-old students as they come into class complaining and moaning about how they hate to read and write. But I don’t take that personally. Instead, I try to find fun and innovative ways to get them to love it as much as I do.
I enjoy sharing ideas with my colleagues at school, and participating in professional development opportunities on Twitter (@susankotch). Join me each weekend on Saturday mornings at 7:30 EST at #satchat, and on Sunday mornings at 9:00 EST at #sunchat!
When I’m not in the classroom, you can find me out and about town in Lavallette, a seaside resort town that is home to beautiful ocean and bay beaches. The winters are quiet when the tourists go home, and the island is given back to the “locals”.
Once the weather warms, you can find me kayaking, boating, sitting on the beach reading, swimming, strolling the boardwalk, biking around, and then grabbing a frozen custard. Sasha, my Golden Doodle, is part of the town’s Goose Patrol, keeping the fields free of geese. Believe it or not, winters bring plenty of snow to the island. We were all affected by 2012’s Hurricane Sandy.

“Earl Javorsky's bold and unusual DOWN SOLO blends the mysterious and the supernatural boldly and successfully. The novel is strong and haunting, a wonderful debut.” – T. Jefferson Parker, New York Times bestselling author of FULL MEASURE and THE FAMOUS AND THE DEAD.
Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes suspense and crime fiction writer Earl Javorsky (also known as Dan Howard). I have to agree with Jeff Parker and say that Dan's books are powerfully intense and immeasurably enjoyable. Here is a little more about "Earl" (and he promises to explain the pen name). " I was born in Berlin and emigrated to the US when I was two. My father had been an aerial photographer under Rommel in North Africa and worked as a cinematographer in NYC. My mother remarried when I was five and we were off to Hollywood, where my step-father had a contract with Paramount. Oddly, he had been a lieutenant in the US Navy off the coast of Italy. I was a weird kid and made the appropriate adjustments. After a long stint trying to make it as a musician in LA and clawing my way up to mid-level management in the chemical entertainment industry (just about killed me), I went back to my first love: writing. I had the good fortune to run into Lou Aronica, my editor at The Story Plant. I work as a proofreader/edito"r (www.theproofreader.org).

A sample from Peter Mack’s book, AYANA CHERRY & THE TABERNACLE GLORIOUS Includes Rev. Mathias Lovejoy's sermon, "Satan's Whisper"
Ayana Cherry's education in the power of seduction will be put to the test when she is taken in by Rev. Mathias Lovejoy and given a place to live and work at The Tabernacle Glorious. Her stride of seduction is on full display as she navigates the inner sanctum of a church that is rife with blackmail, sex, secrets and lies, all pitted against a reverend who has plans to build a grand cathedral to rival the biggest in the nation. When Rev. Mathias Lovejoy calls on Ayana's help, she has a perfect opportunity to get her friend, Peaches, released from jail in the process.
After seducing the reverend, satisfying a judge's request to be sexually dominated, and exposing a thieving, adulterous, blackmailing deacon, Ayana Cherry is a half-a-million dollars richer and on her way to California to find love.
Peter Mack is the highly acclaimed author of A Neighborly Affair. His follow- up novel, The Seduction of Ayana Cherry, was also met with high praise. Peter Mack was born in Los Angeles, California.

"On the night of October 21, 1989, nine glowing objects appeared over an empty stretch of the Mojave desert—and turned a couple’s quiet weekend into an unearthly nightmare of terror. Elise and Tom Gifford say they were held captive in their camper by nonhuman creatures—and through love and prayer were able to live through psychological torment as their captors manipulated their minds with telepathic power. The Watchers hovered over them for a day and a night, they say, stealing their thoughts and emotions, making them relive their most painful and intimate memories, bringing them to the brink of madness. Hours later they were alone again—alive but the visits continued and the nightmare wasn’t over. Called "The most frightening UFO book ever written", The Mojave Incident touches the subconscious fears deep in all of us". Available on Amazon
Fallen Acres: A Girl's Voyage Beyond Life Without Her Parents ~
When You Face Your Greatest Fears, You Find Your Truest Self... The Elliotts are a typical American family: they look content and functional to outsiders, but really, they’re navigating difficult family dynamics. Two introverted parents with passionate feelings who have learned to master and subvert their anger find themselves confronted by a drama-fueled oldest daughter, and a self-absorbed middle daughter. The author, their youngest daughter, tries as hard as she can to be the perfect child—she doesn’t cause trouble, she stays away from angry scenes. But the repression that makes her passive and avoidant causes her reckless nature to come out in other ways…in a series of bad decisions that lead her, at the age of 40, to a place where she is determined to do the right thing for her parents during their late-life crisis. Her story is one of heartache, loss, lessons learned, truths uncovered. It’s about the ways in which God and fate intervene to show us what we’re made of. It’s a powerful testament to the need for compassion and realism with aging parents and end-of-life issues. But most of all, it’s a story of identity and redemption—and how one girl ran away from her hurtful family issues only to find that immersing herself back into her family’s world was the way to claim who she really was. Lyrical, honest, and vivid, Fallen Acres is a memoir both deeply relatable and profoundly valuable.

Challenging the Rhetoric welcomes Ms. Chery who is with News Junkie Post. This is PART 3 of the interview.
This interview was conducted by Anita Stewart and originally aired on Wise Women Media Radio on August 5th, 2015.
Dady Chery is an activist, broadcaster and author. We will be talking about Haiti extensively and her new book titled WE HAVE DARED TO BE FREE. The book was written between 2010-2015 and is definitely a story that needs to be told.
A bit about the book: about one half of all US households donated money to various charities for Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake. There is information in this book that will help many understand why Haiti has not been rebuilt on a large scale and why the relief situation there has not improved.
