Tamika's passion for writing began at an early age. In college she majored in English with an emphasis on creative writing. Tamika wrote short stories both for class assignments and for pleasure. Her dream of becoming a published author began as a junior in college. Although Tamika knew that someday her dream would come true, she needed a career in the meantime. She attended law school while raising two daughters and working full time. She had very little downtime but whenever she had a moment to herself she wrote. During this time her first novel, Anytime Soon was created.
By the time her oldest daughter went off to college Tamika had finally finished her novel and began working to get it published. In 2010, tragedy struck when Tamika's mother died unexpectedly and the writing project was put on hold. Two years later, a close friend reminded Tamika of her dream and encouraged her to continue with her writing project. Knowing that her mother would want her to move forward, Tamika again began the journey to becoming a published author. BQB Books has been the first step in completing her journey.
Today, Tamika is excited about her novel and busy working on her next novel.
Join us this Sunday as we "SPOTLIGHT" another outstanding Author.
Call in at 347-326-9139
Please join the hosts as they welcome in their special guest, Tamika Christy. Tamika is a Bay Area native and began writing at an early age, prompted by the gift of a journal for Christmas. With pen in hand, she continued writing throughout college where she realized her talent for creating intriguing plots and multidimensional characters. Tamika continued to nurture her love for writing while attending law school, where she gave birth to her first novel, Anytime Soon.
Tamika’s life experiences have been filled with rich experiences and a loving cast of delightful family and friends. Her stories embody characters and plots that are based on the premise that we are all flawed in some way but our individual imperfections make us uniquely who we are. Beyond writing, Tamika enjoys cooking, running, and, most of all, spending time with her two beautiful daughters. She continues to reside in the Bay Area and, although she is enjoying the release of her first novel, she is currently busy working on her second.
The chat room will be open for questions and comments. See you then!

Salvation can be a very perplexing subject for Christians, especially with so many denominations saying so many different things about it. Please listen to Mark Joneschiet, The Running Pastor, as he shares from I Thessalonians, Chapter 5 about this important Biblical topic.
Black Socrates and co-host Christy Gaynell open up the dialogue on race and racism. Is racism really a problem in America or are we so sensitive about the subject we create more problems. Does the media over emphasize race? These questions and many more explored this Saturday. At the top of the 2nd hour our "Money and Power 15" (11:00-11:15am EST) will feature a financial expert to discuss economic empowerment in the community.
Wholeness And Recovery, With Host Tamika-Todd-Horace.
A legend in the business, the beautiful Christy Canyon joins Tony and the gang for another Girl Next Door Segment.
Brought to you in partnership with Vivid Radio & Vivid Entertainment.
We find out stuff that even Tony didn't know about her!
This is no ordinary interview with an Adult Film Star. This is not about asking them the same old tired questions that everyone asks. This is an interview "Tony Bruno Style".
What our listeners said:
@Bulletbob32 is that the REAL Christy Canyon?
@ChipReid2014 @ChristyCanyon11 Crushed it tonight! Thank you! Can't wait to listen in tomorrow.
@RealTommyPro Big ups to @MissRobinAustin. What a saucy minx with some good ol' fashioned TCOB. That's "Takin Care Of Business!"
@robwiii @ChristyCanyon11 @VividRadioSXM Great segment!
Elizabeth M. Christy lives in Northern Virginia with her husband James, son Jimmy (5), and daughter Lucy (newborn). She is the best-selling author of the children’s book "Why Does Mommy Hurt? Helping Children Cope with having a Caregiver with Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, or Autoimmune Disease," and blogs on parentswithpain.com and potomacfallsmama.blogspot.ca. Additionally, she works as a Systems Integrator for TASC. In addition to basic survival, Elizabeth enjoys writing, sewing (especially in straight lines!), and reading good memoirs.
“Why Does Mommy Hurt?” is a great resource to talk to children about chronic pain and illness. On this episode, we'll discuss the guilt and shame many parents suffering from chronic pain feel about their parenting. The fact is that parents with chronic pain or illness can be just as awesome as “normal” parents when it comes to raising kids, and if you love your kids, that’s all that matters. We may not be able to walk a mile to the playground, cook a 7-course organic meal from scratch, or volunteer on a field trip to the amusement park, but that’s not what really matters. If you love your kids, you will find your own way, and your kids will know it. Also, many parents in this situation feel very alone, especially when first diagnosed. There are millions of families out there in the same situation, you are not alone, and you have support out there waiting for you!
