    Anthony Anglorus, the Highwayman Aficionado

    in Writing

    Here’s what Anthony Anglorus, our guest, had to say about his book, The Prince of Prigs.


    “Writing this tale was an utter joy, but I had a problem. Two, actually. One, the start of the book must catch the reader's eye.


    There is nothing especially fascinating about a teenager arguing with his father and leaving home even in the seventeenth century, so I elected to start the book sixteen years later. Two, by starting at this point, I was rejecting a lot of fascinating stories, and to make matters worse, eight months later he left the country to fight abroad, and there is little information about this later period.


    So I wrote his tale covering the eight months, and then hit a problem; it was way too short. However, history was roiling around him in this period, so I decided to show some of the events which coloured his actions. In doing so, General Thomas Lord Fairfax caught my eye and I researched him before weaving him into the tale. But the story still lacked depth and a proper conclusion. So I introduced Zachary Howard, weaving his tale around the existing story, and because of some of his actions, I was able to create a totally fictitious but utterly satisfying conclusion to the book.”

    A Conversation w Author Paul Lewis, "After The Devastation"

    in Spirituality

    In 2024, the world is on the brink of nuclear war and environmental disaster. Nora Del Bosque tells her husband, Aden Delaterre, she must go to Chicago, to the new headquarters of the Un, to report on a crucial meeting. With the world situation looking grim, Aden fears for Nora's safety. As an environmental specialist, he understands the danger all too well. His fears are confirmed when global disaster strikes during Nora's trip, and the two are lost to each other. In the ensuing years, they each lead lives in isolated communities without modern technology or the conveniences once taken for granted. Both become leaders within these fragments of civilization, facing a wide range of conflicts. In the process, Nora and Aden discover their own intuitive awakening and come to know and rely on their personal spirit guides-in hopes of one day finding each other. In this tale of romance, political intrigue, and mysticism, humanity faces a post-apocalyptic crisis of devastating proportions.

I love having meaningful conversations with people about their Love of Life and what it means in relation to prayer and eradicating the fear of death. It makes me crazy how American society sweeps death away and no one speaks about it. This is why I’ve created a daily podcast called "Kate Loving's P.R.A.Y.E.R.

    The Late Late Shift with Steve - Episode 23 (The Self Incriminating Edition)

    in Entertainment

    These shows rarely have a topic or theme set up beforehand, but this one will be an exception. I was asked a question loosely related to Insane Clown Posse for my last episode, the Listener Q&A one, and intended to tell a sordid loosely ICP related tale. I ran out of time, though, as the story is too good to skim over. 


    So I won't. It's getting its own episode, and a special weekend one, at that. It involves misdemeanor crime, Juggalos and comics, among other things. I hope I can do it justice in telling it, as it's one of my favorite stories in my head.


    So yeah, join me as I potentially incriminate the crap out of myself and tell my tale. Should be fun stuff.

    Adoptions Joyful & Painful Moments with Kimberly Smythe & Edie Weinstein

    in Self Help

    Edie Weinstein welcomes Kimberly Smythe whose book entitled Letting Go Again: A Birth Mother’s Tale of Adoption, Re-Union, Separation and Growth highlights the idea that re-uniting with the daughter she gave up for adoption has its joyful and pain-filled moments. 


    When Kimberly Smythe was a teenager, she became pregnant and hid the fact from her family until it became evident and from the birth father until well afterward. The shame she felt carried over into all areas of her life. A re-union with her daughter did not go as planned and her artfully told story sheds a light on the emotional roller coaster ride that ensued.


    After living the nomadic life of an Air Force brat, Kimberly Smythe spent twenty-six years in Hawaii, which still holds a special place in her heart.  She has four grown children, three of whom call her mom.  Today, Kimberly lives in the great Northwest where she shares a home with her wonderful husband and their two dogs.   www.lettinggoagain.com


    Edie Weinstein, LSW is a colorfully creative journalist, inspiring transformational speaker, licensed social worker, interfaith minister, BLISS Coach and the author of The Bliss Mistress Guide To Transforming The Ordinary Into the Extraordinary. She calls herself an Opti-Mystic who sees the world through the eyes of possibility. www.opti-mystical.com
