SORT BY Relevancy
Everyone needs a hobby. And, like most people, I hope one day that my hobby will liberate me from my mind–numbing day job. I chose writing. Not one of the easier ones. I chose it at the tender age of 14, churning out terrible science fiction novels that heaped on the cliches and barely hidden tropes of all space operas. Thankfully, those creations reside in the prison of an old Commodore 64 hard drive and several 3.5" disks (kids, ask your parents) in a landfill somewhere. And, let me be clear, the world is better for it.
Along the way, I kept writing. Through college. Through grad school. Through the beginning of my career, such as it is. I like to believe I picked up skills. I wanted to write novels that had things I wanted to see. Hand of Chaos, my debut novel, brings together elements of a spy thriller and a police procedural with dark and urban fantasy. I followed that with Scarred Earth, a serial alien invasion novel I'm releasing entirely through tumblr. I'm probably going about this all wrong, but I don't know any other way.

Bonnie Kaye welcomes author Elizabeth Upton who is originally from Los Angeles, California. She is the author of Secrets of a Nun: My Own Story, which was first published in the 1980s and will be re-released later this year. She earned both a B.A. and an M.A. in Abnormal Psychology from Syracuse University and Chapman University and has worked as a family counselor, social worker and probation officer specializing in troubled teens and abused children, for over thirty years. She and her husband live in Santa Barbara, California.
The Shaman and the Mafia, Elizabeth Upton’s thrilling debut novel, explores themes of devotion, loyalty, guilt and faith as three unlikely allies must work together to solve the murder of their friend. Like Marietta, Upton joined a convent as a young woman. Her decision to become a nun was inspired by her very difficult childhood, which involved two years in an orphanage where she witnessed the suffering of many other children. Determined to live a life of service and help others, the convent seemed an obvious option, until certain factors, including a forbidden love affair and many conflicting emotions about spirituality, drove her from the convent and into a new life helping children and teens who were abused or struggling with drugs. Upton artfully draws upon her eclectic life experiences, as well as her years studying mysticism, reincarnation and spirituality, to excellent effect in The Shaman and the Mafia.

Celebrities like Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, George Michael, Michael Douglas, Eric Benet, Charlie Sheen, Ted Haggard, David Duchovny, and Jesse James. What do they all allegedly have in common? They each had an addiction that almost ruined their lives and the lives of the people around them. While the media revealed these sexual indiscretions for the whole world to see, they stopped short of analyzing the root of this addiction. Too often we don't hear the documented progress these men have made in picking up the pieces of their broken lives. Although it might be beneficial to see the progress, recovery doesn't make great headlines. So observers are left to make assumptions without all the relevant pieces to this most complex sex addiction puzzle. For National Recovery Month, we will go deeper to reveal the naked truth.
In Sex and Surrender: An Addict's Journey, author A.D. Burks graphically recounts his addictive cycle, which lasted roughly twelve years, and almost ended his life. Through a dream Burks realized he had to find a way out. Therapy and spiritual counseling gave him temporary respite and inspired him to devise a four-step process to manage his addiction. Yet Burks' true breakthrough came when the root of his pain was uncovered and he realized that sex does not equal love. During this show highlighting recovery, Burks will provide us with tidbits from his book to give us a taste of his addiction and recovery process.
A.D. Burks is a native Texan and renaissance man. He sang with the Grinnell Singers at Carnegie Hall, earned a Bachelors degree in Chemistry and an MBA from Rice University. Through Sex & Surrender, Burks returns to what he considers his calling -- to use his life lessons to inspire creativity and spiritual growth. To learn more, go to www.sexsurrender.com.
