    Thats Novel interviews ZB Heller

    in Books

    Join Stephanie on Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015 when she interviews Author ZB Heller.  


    "As a little girl it was always a dream for Z.B. Heller to become She-Ra Princess of Power. Since this dream was unobtainable, she spent what was probably way to long in college trying to "find herself". Becoming an artist scratched the creative itch until the stories in her head were getting to be to loud for her to get anything else accomplished. She lives in St. Louis with her husband, son and Flemish Giant rabbit Chloe. In her spare time she likes to read, stalk celebrities on Twitter and create the type of art that people scratch their heads about.

    The Chronicles of Moxie is Z.B. Heller's debut novel."

    Ep. 19 Theadora's new song - One More Day (Rough Demo)

    in Music

    Today's episode is simple. I recorded a new demo yesterday and I am going to play it for you on the show today. 


    It's rough, it's not mixed or edited, and there are apparent noise issues, but it's raw, it's real, its me.


    I wanted to write a song that captured a very tender and vulnerable mood. It is easy to be angry and scream, but exposing your deepest vulnerabilities in songwriting is a whole other thing. It takes bravery to show a vulnerable side, it takes a certain level of self acceptance and fearlessness to expose your soul to the world. However, the experience was quietly transformation for me in writing a song like this. 


    It was a smooth process. Ronald E. King (accompaniment) and I really jived together as we often do and it was a wonderful moment, as it always is when a song comes together so effortlessly. 


    This song is a long way from being a song still, and has many fine tunings and evolutions before I discover it's true personality. However, I think there is something magical about this recording and wanted to share this moment.

    Writing a novel is a balancing act and how well you balance your plot, your characters, and your world building determine the quality of your novel. The ability to do this takes practice.
