    in Lifestyle

    BlaccTopp was raised on the streets of South Dallas, Texas. After the death of his father, feeling as though he had nowhere to turn he turned to the gang. The neighborhood gang, Dixon Circle 357um Gangsta Crips is where he would learn to become ruthless and unfeeling. Although he was deep in the gang and game he continued his studies for fear that his mother would make him move to Florida.
    By the age nineteen he had been shot three times and was on his way to the Texas Department of Corrections with a forty year prison sentence for distribution of narcotics. While inside he lost his youngest sister to the violence of drugs in 1996. After serving seven years he was granted parole (mainly due to his mother's efforts). He used the education that he obtained inside to land a job at a top engineering firm in Texas. He used his love of word play to push himself to local fame on the hip-hop scene in Texas and Florida but, he would lose his mother to cancer in 2006, only to lose his oldest sister to cancer in 2008 and he knew something had to change. He began to chronicle his life, his mishaps and his capers which gave birth to The Hustle Chronicles, his debut novel and soundtrack of the same name. He is a father to three young children and husband to a beautiful and supportive wife. They reside in the state of Florida.

Smith had been arguing with his live-in girlfriend Jennifer Chiba and according to Chiba, she locked herself in the bathroom when she heard Smith scream, and emerged to find him with a knife in his chest.

    Former police officer turned author David Putnam is LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes David Putnam, retired cop turned author.  

    During his law enforcement career, David Putnam worked primarily in California on teams for Patrol, Investigations, SWAT, Narcotics, Violent Crimes, Criminal Intelligence, Internal Affairs, Detective Bureau and as child protective services coordinator.  He rounded out his law enforcement career with a few years in the Hawaiian Islands as a Special Agent-part of a real-life "Hawaii-50″ team. He's now retired from law enforcement and spends his time growing organic California avocados and writing, with his wife Mary and their three dogs.  On his inspiration:  "I was working a surveillance out in Lucerne Valley, flat desolate desert. We were watching a meth lab. When not on point, the chase cars could to do what they wanted, as long as we were immediately available to the radio in case the suspect went mobile. Some detectives watched portable TVs in their cars, some played softball and others just hung out. I always kept five or six books in my backseat for these types of investigations. I came down to my last novel and started to read it. It didn’t hold my attention. I thought: “I can do better!” So with a yellow pad and pencil I penned my first four novels, and found it much more difficult that I’d thought.

    My wife, Beckie Ledbetter Crain, and I have raised our five children in Caldwell Parish and now are blessed to have five grandchildren being raised here. It is my desire to see Caldwell Parish and its citizens prosper without the fear of the drug criminal element infesting our schools, homes, and neighborhoods.

In 1997, I graduated from the North Delta Regional Training Academy. While working in Sheriff Thompson’s administration, I made numerous narcotics arrest and diligently worked to rid our parish of illegal drugs due to the fact that the majority of all other crimes revolve around the drug trade....

    Reader's Entertainment Presents: Shane Gericke

    in Books

    Tune in for a special event on Friday, September 4th at 5pm EST! Meet thriller writer Shane Gericke and enter his world of intrigue, suspense and heart-racing adventure as we talk about his new novel The Fury! Held at knifepoint, hit by lightning, and shaking the cold sweaty hand of Liberace, he was born to write thriller novels! 


    Book Blurb:

    If a grief-blinded cop can’t find the man who murdered her husband, millions will die in a doomsday attack on the United States . . .

    The Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico washes a secret cache of Cold War doomsday weapons onto a Mexican beach: VX nerve gas bombs laced with anthrax, invented by the Nazis during World War II and perfected by the United States to use against Russia during the Cold War. The bombs soon fall into the wrong hands and create an unstoppable opponent—a cartel boss consumed with hate for America. Only one Chicago Police detective stands in the way of those bombs being exploded on American soil. Reeling from the recent murder of her husband, as well as allegations of police misconduct, Detective Superstition “Sue” Davis is thrown into an undercover assignment filled with treachery, assassination, double-crosses, and death. She infiltrates the Mexican narcotics cartel responsible for the death of her husband, Derek, in order to get close to the cartel’s sociopathic enforcer, Jiménez “Jimmy” Garcia . . .

    in Radio

    ...a Milestone of 20 years of continuous Sobriety? Join me as I approach one week closer to my 20th anniversary - free of alcohol consumption, reviewing what it was like when I was out there drinking, what happened to get me to stop drinking, and what life is like now - 20 years later after complete abstinence from drugs or alcohol. Staying close to and being invol;ved with the 12 Step Program - has certainly been an important factor in keeping me on the straight and narrow. What would it take for you to find SERENITY free from the effects of your Addictive personality and free from your "DRUG OF CHOICE" whether it be Alcohol, Pot, Presciption Meds, Gambling, one thing I have learned - is that "I DID NOT HAVE A DRINKING PROBLEM" - I HAD A THINKING PROBLEM - and once I stopped using alcohol - I had to face the effcts of my Stinking thinking and work to clear the debris of my past to keep it out of my future.

    While my life may not necessarily be the poster child portrait of being Clean and Sober - it most certainly is one I am proud to be living, one filled with Gratitude to my Higher Power - (With Whom I choose to call - JESUS CHRIST). Join me every Sunday as my journey intoSobriety continues and meet some of the wonderful people I meet and interact with on almost a daily basis, as we deal with "LIFE ON LIFE'S TERMS"

    Our call in number is 323-580-5755 and join us LIVE every Sunday evening from 7 to 9 PM CST.
