    A Kind Voice on Books and The Writer's Block

    in Books

    In the first hour on A Kind Voice on Books Jason Lawrence will interview Dr. James Millhouse. Dr. Millhouse is a licensed psychologist out of Atlanta Georgia who provided mental training for sports performance to athletes from the amateur to the professional and Olympic level in almost every sport. He has also been featured on NBC Nightly News during the Olympics as the next breakthrough in athletic training. One of his most recent accomplishments, however, is the publication of a great new book called, The Parents Manual of Sports Psychology: A Practical Guide to Achieving Athletic Success. It’s a great new guide based on Dr. Millhouses years of experience working with athletes of all ages, and it lays out a comprehensive plan for re-training the mechanics of an athlete’s mind so as to ensure they always play at the top of their game.


    In the second hour on  The Writer's Block, Bonnie Marlewski-Probert will interview Cynthia Brewster-Keating and on the topic of FEAR. Fear of publishing, fear of sharing your kind voice, fear of success, fear of failure... FEAR is what holds most people back from living the life they were meant to live and for writers or artists, that fear can be paralyzing. 


    Cynthia just published a book written by her mother when her mother was just a teenager. Sadly, even though her mother was fearless when it came to horses, when it came to publishing her work, she was unable to muster up the courage to do it. However, after her passing in 2009, Cynthia discovered the unpublished manuscript and made it her mission to see her mother's dream become a reality. The book is entitled, Over Hill n' Dale and it tells the story of two tween BFFs who love horses and share adventures over the summer.

    A Kind Voice on Books and The Writer's Block

    in Books

    In the first hour Jason Lawrence will interview Young Adult fiction author, Ms. Kendare Blake. According to Kendare she writes horror, mythology and dark fantasy novels. Her most famous work - so far - includes Anna Dressed in Blood, which was a Kirkus 2011 Top Ten and NPR 2011 Top 5 pick, and is being developed for film by Stephenie Meyer's Fickle Fish Films. However, her latest publications are the Goddess War series, which include Antigoddess and its sequel Mortal Gods, both of which follow dying Greek gods in the present day and the teenagers whose lives they ruin, teens who just happen to be reincarnations of great Trojan heroes.


    In the second hour Bonnie Marlewski-Probert hosts the Writer's Block Segment where we discuss some of the challenges faced by writers.  Bonnie will interview Jim Pendleton about his WWII book, The Special. Jim is now tackling a much bigger project… a series that focuses on the tensions that existed between world powers in the 1930s and 40s. What is so interesting about Jim's work is that while his stories focus on the events of WWII and the world at that time in history, they are really about  relationships,  love, and people coming together and learning to understand each other better.


    Among his challenges are determining how many books there will be in the series, framing up what will be covered in each of the books and creating a story arc that will run throughout. Jim's challenges are the same as those of any artist who takes a blank canvas and creates something memorable from that blank canvas.
