    Tired of feeling invisible? Sick of getting no respect? Not willing to take it anymore? Three women of a certain age come together on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show to talk about fighting back with attitude. Joining Halli at her table are the authors of THE NEW SENIOR WOMAN: REINVENTING THE YEARS BEYOND MID-LIFE: Dr. Barbara M. Fleisher and Dr. Thelma Reese, and Cheryl Benton, aka the “head tomato,” the founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”.

    Barbara Fleisher and Thelma Reese, the founders of the popular website Elderchicks.com, for women over 60, are members of the fastest growing part of the population: senior women in their retirement years also known as “Women of a Certain Age.” Wives, moms, grand moms and successful college professors, the two “old” friends came together, serving as catalysts for witty, candid, and inspirational conversation for women entering their retirement years with their amazing book THE NEW SENIOR WOMAN, REINVENTING THE YEARS BEYOND MID-LIFE, a compilation of conversations with women from 60+ to 100.

    After running her own successful ad agency on Long Island, Cheryl Benton sold her agency to one of the largest ad agencies in the world, and spent nearly 25 year in the New York City ad agency world of mad men and women. Benton, aka the “head tomato” then founded and became publisher of The Three Tomatoes.com, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”. Having lived and worked for many years in the land of size zero twenty-somethings, she was truly starting to feel like an invisible woman. She created The Three Tomatoes “just for the fun of it” as the antidote for invisibility and sent it to 60 friends. The rest, as they say, is history.

    Neil Haley Interviews Author Debra Yates

    in Education

    Debra Yates is the author of Woman of Many Names, is about her ssixth-great-grandmother, Nancy Ward, who had ties to Daniel Boone and George Washington, including having saved the latter’s life (and, it’s believed, vice versa) – yet she’s not in the history books!  A role model akin to Joan of Arc, for young girls, Ward has been memorialized in Benton, Tennessee, by a federal historical marker.  Known (among other names) (hence the title of the book) as Nanyehi, she also foretold one of the great American tragedies, the Trail of Tears.

    Urban Teen Magazine's Celebrity Interview with Vedo!

    in Entertainment

    Vedo is a 21-year old American singer, songwriter and entertainer most recognized for his stellar performances on season four of NBC’s popular talent competition, The Voice. Born and raised in Benton Harbor, Michigan Vedo began singing at the age of 9 when his mother discovered his vocal ability was above average, impressing anyone that heard his distinct tone, range and perfect pitch. Although his voice was certainly a gift, it was a curse as well, bringing more attention than many of his peers in the form of admiring girls and fast crowds.

    SWAG Radio Presents: Blacc Topp and Satoya Smith

    in Books

    Blacc Topp was born to a father who was a gangster turned preacher and a mother who was a singer, artist, and scholar. Blacc Topp was born in Benton Harbor, MI and raised in South Dallas, Texas. At the age of 13, he lost his father who was very instrumental in ensuring that he walked a straight and narrow path.  After the death of his father, feeling as though he had nowhere to turn, he turned to the neighborhood gang, Dixon Circle 357um Gangsta Crips. Although he was deep in the gang he continued to excel in his studies for fear that his mother would make him move to Florida if there was a slip in his academic performance. 

    Even though Blacc Topp did well in school, the gang still remained a big part of his life and he was headed down a path that could only lead to jail or a casket!  By age nineteen, he was on his way to the Texas Department of Corrections with a forty year prison sentence.   Through his pain, he began to chronicle his life, his mishaps and his capers which gave birth to The Hustle Chronicles, his debut novel and soundtrack of the same name, which was released November 23, 2012.  Blacc Topp has gone on to release five other titles, The Hustle Chronicles 2 and 3, Tainted, Corporate Amerikkka and the newly released Tainted Too!  Blacc Topp is the first African American Urban Author to have a mobile gaming app created and named after his Hustle Chronicles Trilogy novels, which was released, November 29, 2013.

    Satoya Smith is a native of Daingerfield, Texas. She has been an author for just about a year. Her debut short story titled “Tied In A Bow” chronicles true to life events. With her debut book, she hopes to empower and motivate. She is currently going to school to obtain her Bachelors’ in Psychology. She plans to continue with her writing, bringing her stories to life. She hopes to focus her writing in the fiction & non-fiction genres.
