    Vivek Tiwary Dishes on Epstein Graphic Novel!

    in Pop Culture

    Tonight meet the creative genius behind The Fifth Beatle, the new graphic novel on the life of Brian Epstein. Winning award after award, this artistic rendering of the "life of Brian" is flying off the shelves because it's quick to read, lovely to look at, and a wonderful work of art to collect. Join me as we talk about the line Tiwary draws between fact and fiction...and as we discuss elements of the book that stray from the historical time line. You'll be able to call in and sing this author's praises...and ask him your questions! I'll be taking calls around 8:15 pm CT.

  • Join David Homick, author of a metaphysical novel

    in Spirituality

    After years of working in the banking industry in Central New York, David Homick left his suits behind for a more casual gig as a freelance Web Designer. "I love the creative aspect of my work, which was not something that was encouraged growing up.” Perhaps it is all that pent up creative energy that has motivated him to express himself now between the covers of a book.


    It took 54 years for Homick to pick up the pen, or in this case the laptop, and start writing his first novel. That's a lot of life experience to draw on. Much of his inspiration comes from his recent interest in spiritual, metaphysical, and so-called paranormal activity.


    His first novel, A Lifetime Last Night, is full of metaphysical wisdom and inspiration that is woven into an intriguing, contemporary love story. One of the underlying themes of the story, as well as his life, was inspired by a favorite quote from George Eliot. "It's never too late to be what we might have been."


    A second novel, as yet untitled, is currently in the works. "It's who I am now. I'll never stop writing." Homick dreams of quitting his day job to pursue his writing career full-time.

    INTO THE GO-SLOW is a novel about sisters, the legacy of the Black Power Movement, and the troubled bond between African Americans and Africans. 


    It’s 1986, and twenty-one-year-old Angie is adrift in her hometown of Detroit. Her older sister, Ella, had disappeared in Lagos a decade earlier, and Angie decides to retrace her steps. Against a backdrop of Nigeria’s infamous go-slow—traffic as wild and surprising as a Fela lyric—Angie begins to unravel the mysteries of the past, and opens herself up to love and life after Ella.
