    Indie Books #80 (David Robert)

    in Books

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


    Author David Robert joins me this week to talk about his book: Wanderlush.


    When David, a self-proclaimed anxiety-ridden introvert, convinces himself he’s dying of cancer, he invites his delightfully unpredictable, -popping, chardonnay-swilling mother on a series of international good-bye vacations. By doing so, he unwittingly opens a Pandora’s Box of hilarious and humiliating events that will test just how far they are willing to go to get a laugh.


    David knows the trips will be anything but boring because he and his mom have been causing a scene for as long as he can remember. He describes her as a cross between Bea Arthur and Karen Walker from Will and Grace, and she is notorious for bending the rules.


    But nothing can prepare him for escapades that include digging his mom out of a rain gutter in Costa Rica and being dragged across the Arabian Desert by a psychotic camel named Forrest Hump. As the vacations unfold, David discovers that although he and his mom are having the time of their life, she is ready to share a secret that will change everything.

    THE POE CONSEQUENCE:


       In a section of Los Angeles near Dodger Stadium, two rival gangs rule the streets. For the Alvarado Street Diablos, it's been a year since the murder of one of their closest members at the hands of their sworn enemy, the North Rampart Lobos. A drive-by killing in his honor is planned, but things go wrong and an innocent bystander is the victim. Several hours later the one who pulled the trigger suffers a horrifying death, caused by something never before seen in its uniqueness. Many more such cases follow, all involving only these two gangs among the hundreds throughout the city. And each death occurs at the same time of day. The exact same time of day. What can these two enemies do to survive against an unstoppable power intent on their mutual destruction? How is a gang-hating young boy's attempt to save the life of a gang member tied into preventing a loved one's soul from eternal damnation? What does a mysterious psychic's prophecy conveyed earlier in New Orleans have to do with all of this? Exploring both the darkness and hope that define our emotions, The Poe Consequence integrates social and ethnic divisions through acts of fate and supernatural horror for the reader to observe and imagine.

    Bio


     I was born and raised in Southern California, attending a private, Catholic school from first through eighth grade. Never once did I think of myself as elite or different. That was school, a place I went Monday through Friday for hours when I could have been doing what any normal child does, climbing trees, figuring out ways to drive my parents nuts, or riding my bike, without safety gear since we didn't even know what that was in the 1960s. We made hopscotch's on the sidewalk with chalk and played for hours. Riding a bike up and down a sidewalk was often accompanied by jump ramps where we attempted to fly beyond gravity to reach the moon, like the astronauts we so admired. Skateboards whizzing past were not unheard of, again without safety equipment. Sure, we skinned knees and elbows and bumped heads but we were up and running within the few minutes it took our mothers to clean up the mess and advise us to 'be more careful next time'.

    Bonnie Kaye's Books of Excellence with author Bob Weintraub

    in Books

    My guest tonight is author Bob Weintraub, who has been a life-long fan of the Boston Red Sox. He grew up in Dorchester, Massachusetts, just eight miles from the famous Fenway Park. Bob played baseball in college at Brandeis University, and following  college, he served two years in the Army where he was stationed in Germany. When his military career ended, he returned to Boston, enrolled at Boston University School of Law, and studied law for three years. After graduation, he went into the law field of labor relations. He practiced for six years in Washington, D.C.and in San Francisco before returning to Boston.


    It wasn't until later in his life that Bob tried his hand at fiction writing. His first short story was about Irving, a man who had survived a pogrom in Russia years earlier, and had promised God at the time that he would devote his life to prayer and being a moral and ethical person if he wasn't killed in the attacks. Irving did survive and kept his promise. The problem begins, however, when he is admitted, reluctantly (at the urging of his four children) to a Massachusetts nursing home and feels that it's incumbent upon him to persuade the other residents of the Home to live their lives as he was living his. Irving is loved by most of his fellow residents, but even love can go so far.


    His first story was accepted by a distinguished literary magazine in North Carolina called "The Sun," and this was the beginning of Bob's career as a writer.


    Tonight we'll hear more about Bob, his writing, his books, his upcoming projects, his great love for the Boston Red Sox, and his great recognition of his work by some very famous people.
