Tonight's special guest host is Barbara Ochoa from San Francisco, a returning NAASCA family member who has been with us several times.

Each year for the past three years, Barbara has produced a series of events celebrating what's become known as Male Abuse Awareness Week (MAAW -- the first week of December). Each year, recognizing that young males have an especially tough time even talking about being abused as kids, Barbara reaches out to this frequently undeserved group with videos, music events, dance and special guest appearances (Help4Guys.org). She encourages victims of abuse to seek help, justice and recovery through her music and nonprofit organization, the P.Luna Foundation. Barbara will be joined tonight by her guests Patrick Donaldson and DeWayne Watts. Patrick is engaged in revealing Male Military Spouse abuse issues and manages the web site www.MachoSpouse.com. DeWayne is the author of several books including the novels "The Boy in The Wood" and "David's Mark" and writes a blog at www.DeWayneWatts.com, where one can keep up to date on all his current projects.

Join author, blogger, writer and internet radio host Dariaanne for Writestream Tuesday when she welcomes romance, mystery and suspense author Carmen D'Sousa to the program.
As most writers, Carmen has been reading since she could hold a book and writing since she could hold a pen. In college, she’d dreamed of a career in publishing, but friends and family insisted that a business degree was the safe way to go.
After twenty years of climbing her way to the top of the corporate ladder, though, she wanted a change. In 2000, she left behind a fifteen-year job with a guaranteed paycheck where she had to where suits every day and opted for the comfort of her home office and PJs. Twenty-nine months later, her first book, She Belongs to Me, was published.
Carmen characterizes her stories as modern-day fairytales, as they are overflow with romance, mystery, suspense, a hint of paranormal sometimes, and of course, tragedy. After all, what would a fairytale be without a tragic event setting the stage? All of her novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic and will hopefully make you cry, laugh, love, and hope.
During the interview, we invite listeners to call in with their questions at (347) 945-7246 and join us in the live chat room.
In the second hour, stay tuned for some "Public Service Satire" with the Luminaries of Liberty Ms. Always Right, Scary Smart, and The Prince of Whitebread!
