    Children's Book Author Bruce Coville on ETs for Children

    in Books

    How do you have to think unconventionally to write great stories for children? Join us as children's book author Bruce Coville talks about extraterrestrials and other oddities for kids.


    Bruce Coville was born in Syracuse, New York, in 1950. His family lived in farm territory north of Syracuse and he grew up around the corner from his grandparents’ dairy farm, where he spent a great deal of time dodging cows and chores as well as he was able. As a young reader he loved Mary Poppins and Dr. Dolittle, but also read lots of things people consider junk (Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, Tom Swift, and zillions of comic books). 


    In 1978 he published his first book, The Foolish Giant, a picture book illustrated by his wife, Katherine. Since then he has published over 100 books for children and young adults, from picture books to young adult novels. Among his best known titles are My Teacher Is an Alien, Into the Land of the Unicorns, and Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher. His work has appeared in 16 languages, and won children's choice awards in numerous states. 


    A frequent speaker at schools and conferences, Bruce has 3 times been opening or closing keynoter for the national conference of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. He travels the world to speak in schools, and has presented at American or International Schools in Sao Paolo, London, Madrid, Shanghai, Delhi, Seoul, and many others.


    In addition to his writing, in 2001 Bruce founded FULL CAST AUDIO, an audiobook publishing company devoted to producing full cast, unabridged recordings of great children's books. He has produced over a hundred audiobooks, frequently also directing or performing. 


    Bruce lives in  Syracuse, New York, with his wife, author and illustrator Katherine Coville.

    Ep 136: Valerie LaPenta Steiger on Lessons for Strong Women

    in Books

    Join Dr. Angela Lauria of Book Journeys as she interviews Valerie LaPenta Steiger on the writing and publishing of her book, Mafia | Kitten: Lessons for Strong Women on Finally Letting Go, Feeling Safe, and Being Loved. 


    Valerie Steiger is a life coach, a leadership consultant, a writer, and a retreat specialist. But above all else, she describes herself as a "mafia-kitten" which is a pet name to herself that describes her strength spectrum that ranges from being SO STRONG (mafia) to helpless, weak (kitten). As the subtitle of her book states, she's written it for women and how they can let go, feel safe, and be loved. It is for women of both mafia and kitten poles and dissects what makes them vulnerable through stories that actually happened. 


    Valerie's choice of topic for the book would seem quite a lot to absorb at a time, but it makes sense since it's really a vehicle that represents the hundreds of women that she has worked with and coached who've experienced, as she had, what it felt like to be forced to be strong, to build walls against criticism and abuse, and to be left feeling alone, afraid, confused and yearning for happiness and love. 


    Tapping into her own experiences, Valerie's intention for the book is to guide women to release hurtful memories and haunting thoughts and to be secure once again in life, grounded in hope, faith and self-love that nurtures the true strength that lies inside them.

    Meet the creator of Ofo Ase (the powers of the word) by Poetic Soul

    in Poetry

    Poetic Soul first made a name for himself on Atlanta's poetry scene at the infamous Patti Hut Café. As a breeding ground for up-and-coming word artists, Patti Hut had developed a reputation for a spot for “intimate poetry”. 
    This is where he fine tuned his craft and skills in front of an audience of 100 plus. After joining the Atlanta based  poetry troupe called Klub Kummba and getting a feel for the Atlanta open mic scene.  Poetic Soul's career as a writer gained momentum, so did his work as a poet. "[My poetry] is about making things matter. Making those invisible, intangible ideas and dreams, things that you can touch, that you can feel," he said. So far he has done this in his new book of poetry " OFO ASE'  (the powers of the word). . Soul acknowledged the privilege he felt at being able to share his poetry on stage and in literary form. "To be a young poet and publish books is quite a blessing, because publishers print poetry like churches sing hymns--to maintain some sort of traditional stance," he said.  In the spring of 1995 his first self published book of poetry hit the streets  entitled  "Bullets & Blood", which was  distilled from seven years of journal writing. He went on to produce six more books of poetry (1997) The River Is Overflowing With Words, (2000) Love Serenade, (2008) The Son Of A Warrior Griot, (2009) Lovin U, (2010) Ubran Griot and (2012)
