“Earl Javorsky's bold and unusual DOWN SOLO blends the mysterious and the supernatural boldly and successfully. The novel is strong and haunting, a wonderful debut.” – T. Jefferson Parker, New York Times bestselling author of FULL MEASURE and THE FAMOUS AND THE DEAD.
Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes suspense and crime fiction writer Earl Javorsky (also known as Dan Howard). I have to agree with Jeff Parker and say that Dan's books are powerfully intense and immeasurably enjoyable. Here is a little more about "Earl" (and he promises to explain the pen name). " I was born in Berlin and emigrated to the US when I was two. My father had been an aerial photographer under Rommel in North Africa and worked as a cinematographer in NYC. My mother remarried when I was five and we were off to Hollywood, where my step-father had a contract with Paramount. Oddly, he had been a lieutenant in the US Navy off the coast of Italy. I was a weird kid and made the appropriate adjustments. After a long stint trying to make it as a musician in LA and clawing my way up to mid-level management in the chemical entertainment industry (just about killed me), I went back to my first love: writing. I had the good fortune to run into Lou Aronica, my editor at The Story Plant. I work as a proofreader/edito"r (www.theproofreader.org).

This prerecorded conversation between two young women: one in the United States; the other in India shows the similarities as well as the vast social differences between their two worlds. The intention of the program, produced by Voice of Evolution Radio in partnership with The Other Side and Melanie Closs, is to connect and share the natural curiosity we have about the people and things of which we know very little; to show that we are all so very similar despite our cultural differences.
Since this program was recorded in part in India at the Kingdom of Dreams Contact Center and in part in the United States, there may be some background noises as the young women share their monologues. Please stay with us and listen to the entire broadcast. There is much to learn from these two!
Guest Melanie Closs moderates the drama exchange. As always, Linda Lombardo hosts.

Allen Jay born Alan Jackson Jr. in the city of Gastonia NC on January 5th 1988 began his journey of music like most R&B singers, in the church. In 2005 he was introduced to the studio, the pen and pad and it was love at first sight. He began to build his fan base as a gangster R&B singer. Living the life in which he sung about he ended up in prison in 2008 for armed robbery. While incarcerated like any other artist he began to build on his craft. Upon his release in 2011 he ran into engineer and producer Brian "Dufflebagg" Duff who introduced him to the Carolina Crooks. From then on hits began to be made such as Hate To See You Cry and About Last Night among plenty of others. In addition to being a member of the Carolina Crooks Allen Jay and Dufflebagg started their own movement Steady Entertainment where they push their own artist. With so much talent and humbleness the sky will never be the limit for this origin
Greetings to all God's people throughout the earth. I pray blessings over you and your families. Thank you for your support and prayers. My guest tonight is a woman who has overcome much isolation and abuse Ms.Jasmine Inari Jarden to the platform.
This biography is all true except the birth location and the college name due to the use of the pen name. Jasmine Inari Jarden was born on December 19, 1962 in Knoxville, Tennessee. She grew up a military “brat” traveling the world like a little jet setter. She is the oldest of four girls and life was hectic, erratic, and dramatic to say the least. After high school, Jasmine went directly to college. She spent two years at a Historically Black College/University (HBCU), and two years at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Jasmine graduated with a BA in English in 1985. Unable to secure a substantial position within her chosen career field, she decided to join the United States Army. After all it was an opportunity to learn another job skill quickly and to pay back the government for using her biological father’s Government Education benefits.In the military, Jasmine found discipline and a regimented lifestyle, just the medicine she needed to help her unorganized life in order, make a plan for the future, and work toward new goals. She remained in the Army for 20 years. She recognized her leadership skills and rose to the position of Major before retiring on September 17, 2008. Jasmine started writing as a personal means for another outlet she encountered. She decided to come out and share her story — a story that would eventually empower fellow women.Alarming as it is, another brave soul decided to share her story to heighten the bar for awareness of a phenomenon that wraps the country. “Grandfather’s Favorite Girl
Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910),better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "The Great American Novel."
Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which provided the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. After an apprenticeship with a printer, he worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to the newspaper of his older brother, Orion Clemens. He later became a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River before heading west to join Orion in Nevada. He referred humorously to his singular lack of success at mining, turning to journalism for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise. In 1865, his humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County", was published, based on a story he heard at Angels Hotel in Angels Camp, California, where he had spent some time as a miner. The short story brought international attention, and translated into classic Greek. His wit and satire, in prose and in speech, earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.
