SORT BY Relevancy
Recently, a new movement has risen. It's a call for more diverse books. It became known during the Book Expo where, from what I'm told, there was a startling lack of diverse books available.
Part of me thinks it’s about time.
During my journey to publish as a Christian author, I found myself floored by how many traditional publishing houses neglected to buy my book -- not because it wasn't a good product but because it has an interracial couple. One would think in the 21st century, this kind of attitude is archaic. Shouldn't we have arrived by now?
I guess not.
Join me as I talk about the need for diversity and Christian fiction. Our guest co-host is author Unoma Osiegbu-Nwankwor. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or you can download the WLUV Radio mobile app. Any way you can, join us.

All About Nigeria Lockley
Authors bios are usually plain old boring if you ask me and there is so much more to say or to be told than where I live and how many degrees I have. So, here’s the unauthorized bio. Here’s the stuff you want to know and don’t want to know about me.
My favorite color is blue. I like pralines ‘n’ cream ice cream. I’m on the church choir, but I really can’t sing. God bless my choir director and pastor. I was always a writer, but I wasn’t always into Christian Fiction. Poetry was actually my forte and my first love when it came to writing. I was born on a major holiday, which sucked as a kid, got progressively better as I grew up, and now it is just another day. I’ve always dreamed of becoming an author and now with confidence I can quote Matthew 6:33 which says that if we seek the kingdom of God first, and his righteousness, everything will be added unto us.
If you want to know more about me send in your questions and if they’re not on the wild side I’ll certainly entertain you. If you’re looking for the traditional author’s bio scroll way, way down on the bottom for the polished version. Want more of me, my antics, and my Jesus? Then join me on Facebook and on Instrgram at NewNigeria. See you in cyberspace and hopefully face-to-face someday soon.

While her sister lies on her deathbed, Abby Fischer prays for a miracle. What Abby doesn’t expect, however, is for God’s answer to come in the form of the handsome Dr. Robert King, whose experimental treatment is risky at best.
As they work together toward a cure, Abby’s feelings for Robert become hopelessly entangled. Separated by the tragedy of the mighty San Francisco earthquake, their relationship suddenly takes a back seat to survival. With fires raging throughout the city, Abby fears for her life as she flees alone through burning streets. Where is God now? Will Robert find Abby, even as the world burns around them? Or has their love fallen with the ruins of the city?

Christian Authors on Tour (CAOT)
We have two guests on The G-ZONE today! Cynthia Rutchi starts the show off at 11:00AMEST and then Sue Badeua grabs the last half of the hour starting at 11:30AMEST!
Here is a little bit on each author:
Taking multi-tasking to new heights (or depths, depending on your perspective), Cynthia Ruchti is the author of recent releases "When the Morning Glory Blooms" (novel) and "Ragged Hope: Surviving the Fallout of Other People's Choices" (nonfiction). She makes potato corn chowder for her husband of 41 years, loves on her three kids and five grandchildren, recently retired from 33 years of writing and producing a daily radio broadcast called THE HEARTBEAT OF THE HOME, writes devotionals for TheChristianPulse.com, is past president of the 2,700-member American Christian Fiction Writers and now serves as ACFW's Professional Relations Liaison, all while working on more book projects in addition to the six already on the shelves.
Love children (mom to 22, grand mom to 35, great grandmom to 7!) chocolate, camping, road-trips, writing, reading mysteries and more, standing up and speaking up for those without a voice. I have worked in children's services, policy and advocacy for 35 years. Married to my best friend, I divide my time between my home and kids in Philadelphia and traveling to speak and teach on the topics I am passionate about - healing and hope for children who have experienced trauma, foster care, adoption, permanent families for all kids, and more. My faith is my rock. After the 3rd of our 3 terminally ill children passed away in 2012 we decided the time had come to write our story and so we are proud and excited to share "Are We There Yet? The Ultimate Road Trip Adopting & Raising 22 Kids" with you all!
Today we are fortunate to have two guests to start off the weeks worth of shows! Narration by George starts off the show and then Cindy Noonan drops in at the half way point.Here is a little bit about both guests:
Narration by George:
As the son of an author/artist father and an author/actress mother, I inherited a love for the written and spoken word. It is my passion to bring words to life; to make them meaningful to the listener; to have them express the most meaningful feelings, concepts, and actions. I do that with my voice.
I have spent my adult life communicating ideas and concepts, teaching about products and ideas with positions in sales, sales management, retail management, and customer service. I’ve done this for major and minor corporations and as a U.S. Government employee.
Now, it is time to put these talents and experiences to use in my new venture, Narration by George. It is my desire to voice the books of Christian authors; books of all types – fiction, non-fiction, children’s.
Cindy Noonan has researched Underground Railroad history in Pennsylvania and New York and has included many authentic sites and characters in DARK ENOUGH TO SEE THE STARS. She resides in Northeast Pennsylvania with her husband of forty-five years, Frank. After raising five children, they now enjoy time with their nine grandkids, especially at the beach.
Parents, are you looking for an exciting read for boys ten to thirteen? Look no further. Boys won't want to put down this story of twelve-year-old slave Moses and his quest for freedom.
Teachers, add some adventure to your curriculum. DARK ENOUGH TO SEE THE STARS will make learning about the Underground Railroad exciting for any middle grade or junior high student.
