    Writestream Tuesday: 'Surviving Camp Inca' with Julienne Burleson

    in Books

    What have you overcome in your life? For Southern California native Julienne Burleson, it was a set-up by "friends" that led to her unjust imprisonment in a Third World prision: 

    In 1995, Julienne Burleson was just a naive’ Southern California girl living a carefree life of fun in the sun. All of that changed, however, when an acquaintance invited her to Ecuador and asked her to bring back some artwork—artwork that, unbeknownst to Julienne, is filled with cocaine. Thus begins Julienne’s multi-year ordeal in the Ecuadorian prison system.

    Chronicling her harrowing journey in vivid detail, Julienne describes what life is like in a third world prison. Yet despite the cruel conditions, Julienne manages to find light, hope, and even forgiveness in the darkest of places.

    How can some people live through such an experience without letting prison destroy their minds, while others crumble and are ruined for the rest of their lives? Find out in this inspiring memoir and discover how Julienne refuses to let this horrific experience define her.

    For more information on Julienne, visit CampInca.com. During the live interview on January 26 at 1 p.m. Eastern, call in with your questions at (347) 945-7246, and press 1 to get into the queue.

    Writestream Tuesday: 'The Witness' with Robert Borelli

    in Books

    Writestream Tuesday kicks off the New Year with the compelling, real-life story of mobster-turned-minister Robert Borelli:

    Born in Brooklyn, New York, Robert saw three kinds of people: those like his parents, who worked hard but didn’t seem to get anywhere; those who were addicted to drugs and alcohol, living on the streets; and those who had it all, but lived a life of crime. At a young age, Robert was attracted to the latter and became an errand runner for a local mobster.

    As he began his ascent through the ranks of the Gambino crime family, he fell into a life of crime and drug addiction. Eventually Robert’s crimes landed him in prison, looking at a very long time separated from his family – particularly his daughter.

    After being encouraged by a friend to read a Bible, the Lord began to do a work in Robert’s heart that would lead his life in a new direction. In the midst of this spiritual transformation, Robert began to cooperate with Federal authorities and agreed to testify to the things he had seen and done while in the Mafia. 

    Today, Robert shares his story with audiences throughout the U.S. By putting God’s love into action and sharing his own experiences, Robert is proof of how God can give anyone a new life, no matter what they’ve done.

    Daria Anne interviews Robert about his book, The Witness: A Tale of the Life and Death of a Mafia Madman at 1 p.m. Eastern. Call in with your questions at (347) 945-7246.
