    La Literati welcomes three talented writers and friends to our show

    in Books

    Join Niles and Tosha as we spotlight the work of three talented writers and celebrate the beauty of their words. 


     Debra (D.S.) Levy is a writer of short stories, flash fiction, and essays. She's had work published in the Alaska Quarterly Review, Columbia, Little Fiction, The Pinch, and others. Although she's never considered herself a "poet," she believes that whatever she's writing has always begun with a poet's concerns -- concision, compression, sound, and the desire to capture moments of being. Since blogging at C-Dog & Company, she has begun (shyly) to share some of her free verse.


     


    Geetha Balvannanathan Prodhom is an Indian writer born within a multicultural family and raised between India, Tunisia, Europe and the Middle East. She writes poetry in English, French and Arabic and has published a collection of French poems in 2011 with another collection of poetry in English to be published in 2016. A fervent admirer of the Japanese art of Tanka and Haiku since 2010 and writing her own Haikus in English, French and Italian since 2014, she also writes short novels in English and in French on the themes of human feelings and interaction. She is currently working on a manuscript in English depicting the varied life she led.


     


    Christian Marc is a writer and blogger born in New Jersey, who lived in L.A., but is currently moving to Seattle. He is a two time recipient of the Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence.

    Tonight's Special Guests - The very Talented Film Director Shanice Williams
    Shanice says in her Bio
    She has been telling stories since elementary school, when she wrote her first play about a little girl who faces some harsh adversity. She continued to write throughout her school days, wowing her English teachers with her creativity and natural storytelling ability, which she attribute to many hours spent watching television as a youngster. Martin and Law & Order SVU are two of her all-time favorite television shows, and Malcolm X and What Dreams May Come are two of her favorite films of all time. 

    But she says her love of story was born by reading novels. She enjoyed reading different authors, including Terry McMillan and John Steinbeck, and she thoroughly enjoyed novels by V.C. Andrews and Stephen King. Taking in all these aspects of storytelling, She was bound to create her own alternate universe at some point. Her dream was realized in 2014 with the production of Waiting Room, her first short film, which won Best Film at the TPN Film Festival, December 2015, in Atlanta. She is currently in pre-production on a project in which She co-wrote the screenplay, Family Stranger, and she is developing two scripts for the web and cable television as well.
