    Linda Joyce is an award-winning contemporary romance author born on Christmas Eve. Her Louisiana family’s roots run deep, and they’re intertwined with her Japanese heritage.

Now she lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and their three dogs: General Beauregard, Gentleman Jack, and Masterpiece Renoir.


    Linda penned her first manuscript while living in Japan as a U.S. Air Force dependent. Her classmates lined up at recess to read her latest pages. Linda is a self-professed foodie and has the kitchen of her dreams. She enjoys painting when she can fit it in. She and her husband, Don, love college football. They frequently go RVing, and at last count, they’ve traveled to twenty-one states with “the boys.”  Find out more about Linda on her website and Facebook.

    Taiwan-Discovering The Beautiful Isle's Food Paradise

    in Travel

     


    Keelung’s Miaokou Night Market has a reputation of being one of the most popular night market’s in Taiwan. The Main street where the Dianji temple first started drawing patrons to the area is lined with food stalls serving some of the most popular dishes and snacks found in Keelung. 


    This is a very tourist friendly night market with translations in Japanese and English, some are loose in their descriptions. Honestly lots of great tasting food but I wouldn’t consider alot of it nutritious.


     One of my favorite stalls serves oil rice, a sticky style rice with mushrooms and a delicious soup served with lumps of fresh crab meat. Being a port city there is an abundant selection of seafood and other interesting tasty treats.


    Further south, in central Taiwan lies the city of Taichung. The climate is drier in this part of the island making for a perfect environment for night markets. Taichung is world-famous as the place where bubble tea was invented.


    If you ask most Taiwanese people where their favorite place to go for a weekend is many will say Tainan. This city located in Southern Taiwan was once the capital of the island before the Japanese began their 50 year rule of the country and moved operations to Taipei. There are lovely Japanese colonial era buildings everywhere but most people come to Tainan for the food. 


    This is the Anping area of Tainan with the oldest streets on the island. People travel from all over Taiwan just to visit and try the many special snacks only made here, like one of my favorites, Coffin Toast. Excerpts from "Taiwan-Discovering The Beautiful Isle's Food Paradise".

    David Fischer with Landmark Capital Gold Group talks the economy, retirement, gold, and coins. He says signs show we're moving into a recession. The world is pulling away from backing our debt, and our debt is still growing. Citizens will have to bail us out. It's called a "bail in."

    Did you know socialism is working out well in Sweden? At least according to one Bernie Sanders supporter interviewed by Jesse Watters.


    Uh oh! FBI has launched an investigation into Hillary Clinton having a private email server.


    Are you ready? We're losing another 50,000+ jobs! Must be because the economy is recovering, right?


    Do you know who's NOT included on the unemployment rolls, even though they are technically unemployed?


    Bernie Sanders says middle class will pay more in taxes and that will save them money. #LibLogic


    Hr3   Starting with a little history lesson on Valentine's Day. Do you know how it started?


    Dr. Michelle Skeen joins Joe to discuss the fear many men have leading up to Valentine's Day and help us understand why women have such high expectations on that day. Shouldn't we show our loved ones we love them all year round?


    Time is the most valuable gift we can give each other.


    And... what NOT to do when you're travelling without your spouse, that men are doing in Japan to avoid cheating.

    He Said, on Next Steps Radio

    in Books

    February and April are He Said/She Said months on Next Steps Radio!


    Does gender count when it comes to writing thrillers? Are there differences between the two sets of authors and the books they write? And the biggie: is one gender more likely to be successful than the other?


    First up, the men. Please join host and award-winning suspense novelist Jenny Milchman as she talks to three male authors about whether sex matters.


    Matthew FitzSimmons was born in Illinois and grew up in London, England. He now lives in Washington, DC, where he taught English literature and theater at a private high school for over a decade. THE SHORT DROP, a political kidnapping conspiracy thriller, is his first novel.


    Barry Lancet’s third book in his award-winning international thriller series featuring Jim Brodie is PACIFIC BURN. Previous books are JAPANTOWN (Barry Award Winner) and TOKYO KILL (Shamus Award Finalist). Lancet divides his time between Japan and California.


    After graduating with a Journalism degree from the University of Oklahoma, Tim Washburn spent several years working in the television business both in Oklahoma City and Little Rock, Arkansas. His first book, POWERLESS, deals with a geomagnetic solar storm that destroys every power grid in the northern hemisphere, flinging the human race back to the Dark Ages.
