    CONVERSATION WITH ROSANNE SMALL-MORGAN

    in Health

    Rosanne Small-Morgan


    Born and raised in St. Vincent, radio host, newspaper columnist, wife, mother and advocate drew on the strength gained from overcoming major life challenges to drive her to achieve her goals. Affectionately called ‘Rosie’ by her many fans, readers and social media followers, she is on a journey to enlighten and inform the masses on this important topic of Autism, and to provide support to families with Autistic children. Rosie’s passage to becoming a public face and voice for this cause was inspired by her 12 year old son Zane who is autistic. Even though Zane is quite high functioning and smart, as a parent she has battled several instances of adversity in getting him adjusted in society. Utilizing therapeutic blogging, she shared her family’s journey with Zane as well as his pitfalls and triumphs which in turn led to other mothers and household revealing their stories and “coming out of the closet” about their own experiences with autism. In order to keep things ‘light’ when imparting information on this topic which is often regarded as ‘heavy’, the dynamic Rosie uses her God-given talent for storytelling and her experience in stand-up comedy performance as her general approach. During her lecture/speaking engagements she would often wittily integrate stories about raising Zane and many times give feedback to the audience on how she and her family handled those particular challenges Blessed with a familiar, identifiable personality and a distinct gift for comedy and with new speaking platforms and projects on the horizon for this unwavering advocate for autism awareness, the possibilities are limitless as to where Rosie’s journey may lead her.T

    CONVERSATION WITH ELLEN BRAZER

    in Health

     


    Ellen Brazer Award winning author speaks with Lorna Owens about her new book So It Is Written.


     


    Meticulously researched and controversial in scope and imagination, And So It Was Written travels to a time when a Third Temple is built and the Ark of the Covenant holding the Ten Commandments is found. The year is 132 CE, and the proclaimed Jewish Messiah, Bar Kokhba, has defeated the Roman army and rules Judea. As the Romans prepare to reclaim Israel, the book follows two sets of brothers-one Roman and one Jewish-whose friendships, hatreds, and lives intertwine. For characters you will dream about, And So It Was Written is the ultimate treat. You will smell the spices in the markets, see the blood on the battlefields, rage with the injustice of brother against brother. From triumph to defeat, this is a saga of courage, conquest, familial loyalty, honor and love-showing man at his best and his worst.

    in Self Help

    Ready to make a BOLD step into your future? This is the woman to show you how. The Miami Herald called Lorna Owens a “pioneer and the mother of reinvention.” It's true. Lorna Owens knows a thing or two about what she calls “massive change.”

     

    A TV commentator for Nancy Grace and high powered criminal attorney, she got the call years ago to change her life's direction. Today, the author of “Daily Sustenance” and “Everyday Grace, Everyday Miracle” says she has no regrets.

     

    "I was an Assistant District Attorney under Janet Reno. I had a great law practice. I was doing very well by anyone's standards: little girl from Jamaica makes it big in America."

     

    Two years ago she was watching CNN and saw Anderson Cooper do a piece called “rape as a weapon of war.” It told the story of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. As a result of these gang rapes
