Diane Cox is a native Georgian, but has lived all over the country. She is an entrepreneur and has always harbored a secret desire to write since high school, but somehow the words didn't come.
All the women in her family have always loved to drop off the main road and pursue some unpaved track (pig trail, as they call them in Georgia) to look for the undiscovered.
One day Diane realized that when she didn't find excitement on those side roads, she could create an imaginary world to satisfy that need.
She has been writing for six years, and has won a third prize for short story fiction from the Atlanta Writers Club.
Typewriter from Hell came alive in her mind and demanded to be published, although Diane has completed a first novel and is working on a second.
Diane hopes to continue to offer surprises to her readers and looks forward to building a fan base.

This is one show you won't want to miss. Her book is based on a true story -her Story. Twenty-five-year-old Laura resides in Littleton, New Hampshire with her three-year-old daughter, Emily. Her husband, Kevin, a marine, has been called out to sea for six months. Laura has just given birth to her second daughter, Hannah. "Uh-oh. We've got a problem here. I'm hearing a significant murmur." Just thirteen days after giving birth, Laura's life was changed forever by those words from the pediatrician. This is the raw and honest recount of Laura's unexpected journey into the world of parenting a medically fragile, special-needs child. Will her marriage survive? What about her relationship with her older daughter who presents challenges of her own? Will Laura keep her sanity?

She will be discussing their efforts to be the best parents and educators they can be. Over the years they handle life as it comes and are very successful in their efforts.

Join author, blogger, writer and internet radio host Dariaanne for Writestream Tuesday on April 22 at 1 p.m. Eastern when she welcomes author Randy Kadish to the show. From the author's Amazon page:
I'm a native New Yorker. After a good deal of disappointment, I gave up writing. Then my mother passed away, and I found that fishing helped ease my grief. Almost accidently, I wrote and sold a fishing article. Afterwards, my articles and memoirs appeared in many publications, including The Flyfisher, Flyfishing & Tying Journal and Yale Anglers' Journal.
To me, much of my writing is about how the challenges of fishing and the beauty of the outdoors helped me come to terms with loss and with a world I can't always understand. In a sense, my writing is autobiographical, as it reflects my own gratifying, but at times, difficult journey of emotional and spiritual recovery.
On the long road of my journey, I slowly learned that, even when I don't have answers, I must strive to find forgiveness and self-worth and to connect to the good in the world. (This is how I define spirituality.) I therefore love books where the main characters struggle against inner and outer conflicts and then try to do what's right.
Please join Dariaanne and Randy on April 22 at 1 p.m. Eastern for some enlightening conversation. Your calls are welcome at 347-945-7246.
The Importance of Empowering Teens
It is very important for parents to empower teens to be their best. Teens struggle quite a bit nowadays and they have many problems that we didn't have when we were adolescents. The culture demands certain things from adolescent girls and boys. But it is important for them to do mor than mimic what their peers and culture is saying and doing. They need to become authentic individuals. Here are a few ways that parents can empower teens:
Talk to your kids a lot about what their beliefs and values are as opposed to what the culture is dishing out to them; Empowering our children to be the best that they can be by believing in them and helping them be more responsible; Not beating them up when they make mistakes but to talk to them at length and try and correct them in the future; Developing a relationship of unconditional love with our children and teens; Developing honest and open interaction with our teens by having face to face chats on a consistent basis. By taking these steps we could saving our children to become the best that they can be. And this will help them be authentic adults as well--individuals who know what they like and dislike and can follow their inner voice.

Super stoked to interview a prolific and inspiring writer C. Hope Clark who I've admired for years. During our time together, I'll be interviewing her about The Carolina Slade Mystery Series and most recently, Palmetto Poison, the third book to the series, which was just released in February 2014
Here's a bit about C. Hope Clark. I hope you can join us for what will be an informative and interesting interview.
C. Hope Clark was born and reared in the South, from Mississippi to South Carolina with a few stints in Alabama and Georgia. The granddaughter of a Mississippi cotton farmer, Hope holds a B.S. in Agriculture with honors from Clemson University and 25 years’ experience with the U. S. Department of Agriculture to include awards for her management, all of which enable her to talk the talk of Carolina Slade, the protagonist in most of her novels. Her love of writing, however, carried her up the ranks to the ability to retire young, and she left USDA to pen her stories and freelance.
Hope is married to a 30-year veteran of federal law enforcement, a Senior Special Agent, now a contract investigator. They met on a bribery investigation within the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the basis for the opening scene to Lowcountry Bribe. Hope and her special agent live on the rural banks of Lake Murray outside of Chapin, South Carolina, forever spinning tales on their back porch, bourbon and coke in hand.
She also currently manages FundsforWriters.com, a weekly newsletter service she founded that reaches 45,000+ writers to include university professors, professional journalists and published mystery authors. Writer’s Digest has recognized the site in its annual 101 Best Web Sites for Writers for thirteen years.

Lynne Hinkey is a marine scientist who spent "donkey years" in the Caribbean, hanging around marinas and boaters. She currently lives in Charleston, South Carolina, with her husband, two cats, and a dog. She is the author of a number of short stories, essays, and travel articles, and is a reviewer for The Internet Review of Books. When not writing, Lynne is an adjunct professor of biology at Trident Technical College and the University of Maryland -- University College.
Now, in her own words, "For as long as I can remember, I've been a writer, mostly of fiction (even when keeping a journal -- my own adolescence just wasn't exciting enough to document without embellishment.)
I wrote my first book at age 8: a self-illustrated guide to "School Rules." My parents locked themselves in the bathroom to read it so their laughter wouldn't hurt my feelings. They didn't discourage me, and I finished my first two (unpublished) novels while still in high school.
Life took me down another career path--one that ultimately gave me the stories I'd write, and let me find my voice. I decided to pursue this road seriously in 2005, and in 2008, my first short story found its way into print.
Since then, a number of my other stories, essays, travel articles, and book reviews have been published in print and online. The release of my debut novel, Marina Melee, (Casperian Books, 2011) is only the beginning of this journey. My second novel, Ye Gods! A Tale of Dogs and Demons, will be released by Casperian Books on April 1, 2014 (no foolin'!) and I have more stories to tell after that."
