    IndieReview Behind The Scenes MAVERICK MOMENT with Author CATO!

    in Entertainment

    ~~Hello Everyone! My name is Michelle Cornwell Jordan, I am your host! 


    ~~The definition of Maverick is an unorthodox or independent-minded person.


    Also called a TrailBlazer! I have the pleasure of chatting with one of these "Thinking Outside The Box Artists"  Urban Fiction Author CATO!


    CATO is an author at Lock Down Publications.


    Born and raised in Florida, CATO was acclimated to the streets at an early age. A former hustler who had been involved in some gangsta shit during his sojourn out in the streets, CATO attended college and pursued a paralegal degree after doing a short stint in federal prison on a gun charge and has plans to pursue a law degree in the future.


    While behind the fence, CATO rediscovered his childhood love for writing stories and began putting together a string of stories that have bestsellers written all over them. A blog talk radio show host and blogger, CATO’s other passions include social activism, poetry, the outdoors, working out, cooking, baking and spending time with family and loved ones.


    As of right now, CATO is single, but is currently waiting patiently for the Queen who can help him rule the kingdom. Remember his name and look for big things from him in the future as he makes his pen known in the literary world in different genres. http://www.facebook.com/Cato.Cato.9406 http://twitter.com/AuthorCato http://www.instagram.com/AuthorCato

    Living with MST Brain Lewis

    in Military

    Brian enlisted in the Navy in 1997, attended initial training schools, and advanced to the rank of Fire Control Technician Third Class. During his tour on the USS Frank Cable (AS-40), a superior non-commissioned officer sexually assaulted him in August 2000. He was ordered by his command not to pursue a report of this crime with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. After this crime, Brian was misdiagnosed with a Personality Disorder by a Naval psychiatrist and discharged by his command in August 2001. He received a disability rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs in June 2002 for his post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from the military sexual trauma. Brian’s petition to change his discharge from a general discharge for a personality disorder to a medical retirement for post-traumatic stress disorder was denied by the Board for Correction of Naval Records in August 2004.


    Brian holds an Associate of Applied Science degree in Paralegal Studies from Anne Arundel Community College, a Bachelor of Science degree in Paralegal Studies from Stevenson University, and a Master of Science in Forensic Studies from Stevenson University in December 2013. His master’s thesis was written on military sexual trauma and nominated for publication in the Stevenson Forensics Journal.


    Brian is currently a second year student at Mitchell Hamline School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota where he is pursuing a joint JD/MPA program and serves as Treasurer of the Mitchell Hamline Veterans Association.


    He hopes to continue serving by litigating and continuing to advocate for veterans and military sexual trauma survivors.

    An excerpt from Ishaq Mu'min’s “The Evolution of a G"   Izzy grew up in the Mid 70s and late 80s, Between Harlem and the Bronx, New York City. During this era was the last of a dying breed of hustlers-last of the Mohegan’s-the true underworld gangsters. There are many hoods all over in American cities across the United States, but it is no ancient Chinese secret that: long before the crack epidemic, the heroin trade in the Bronx and Harlem was on another level and that this level could never be reached again.

    B.Fly Welcomes Author of Love The Real You Charron Monaye

    in Lifestyle

    Meet Our Guest Charron Monaye: Charron’s work as an author and playwright takes social issues, such as antibullying, police brutality, and father’s rights, head on in unconventional ways using an ‘Educate with Entertainment’ approach. The proof is in her published books of poetry “My Side of the Story” and “Living Laughing and Loving My Way Through” promoting self-love, positive relationships, and the power of healing. After her success with poetry, Charron took her writing to the stage in her first play “Living Your Life”, with the hopes of reaching a larger audience. She went on to write four more stage plays; “Get Out Of Your Own Way,” “Why Can’t We Be Friends”, “Pawns” & “Saving Our Sons”. “Why Can’t We Be Friends” was a sold-out success story on anti-bullying showcasing her son, Christopher Hopson as the lead character. It pays to be a dreamer. Charron has received several acknowledgements and awards for her work. In 2013 she was an honoree of the Girls on Fire Awards in Cleveland, Ohio; receiving the “Presidential Award” and “Best Independent Author” award. In 2014, she won “Real Life Based Stage Play of the Year” for the production “Why Can’t We Be Friends” at The DPI 3rd Annual Playwrights Awards in New York. She has a B.A. in Political Science, Masters in Public Administration, and a certificate in Paralegal Studies. She currently works as a Senior Veterans Service Representative with the Department of Veterans Affairs. She is a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Epsilon Rho Zeta Chapter & Order of Eastern Star, Ruth Chapter #66 (PHA~ PA), and The Visionaries.
