  • Author Cheryl "Cherry Bomb" Winley

    in Writing

    Native New Yorker, Cheryl “Cherry Bomb” Winley was born and raised in one of the most affluent counties in the eastern most part of Long Island. The progeny of scholarly and dignified parents, Cherry’s childhood not only mimicked richness and decadence it encompassed balance and an avid love of the English language. However, being gifted with a passion for English and poetry wasn’t her only reward; Cherry’s parents would reward her every action with monetary treats. By the age of 15, Cherry’s lifestyle would consist of limitless credit cards, fine dining, cars, and shopping and more shopping. The excessive gratification from her parents would in turn increase Cherry’s desires and by the age of 16 she would meet her first real boyfriend, a drug dealer, who would change the suburban girl into a lady and a hustler’s wife. Fast money, fast living, diamonds, designer brands and fancy cars; Cherry’s years as a young adult would be a ‘glamorous life’. Cherry decided to pen her strategy, thus, her authorial debut I Am Not a Hoe – a handbook that details Cherry’s best possession; her game, her time, and her attention and as Iceberg Slim would say “the game is to be sold not told”.

    in Writing

    Author Jim Keck joins Rated G Radio to talk abou this book "The Big House: Story of a Southern Family." Live 10pE/7pW.  Call 323 657-1493 to ask a question! Coming of age in California, James Keck (“J. Keck”) grew up with a Southern heritage inside the home, and a West Coast identity outside of what the family called “the Big House.”  The home was a gathering place for extended family and friends, many of whom were expatriate Southerners as well.
    Between the warmth and storytelling of the home, J. Keck has been inspired by the culture and tales of many fine and memorable characters.  Numerous trips and stays to visit relatives and family holdings, along with a nearly three-year stay in Texas, further deepened his appreciation and understanding of the culture.
    Attending both Texas and West Coast colleges and universities, J. Keck received a degree in journalism, and an advanced degree in psychology, minors in business, anthropology and geography.
    Once having entered business, writing became a personal pastime until the publication of one of his short stories in a cultural magazine.  Additional publications of his writings followed:  the short story, “The Dark Forest,” his novella, “Homeless:  The Dollmaker’s Web,” and his recent novel, “The Big House:  Story of a Southern Family.”  Currently, J. Keck is working on a sequel to the novel entitled, “The Big House:  End of An Era.”

    in Writing

    The Virgin Islands Literary Festival and Book Fair will feature several events highlighting the historic Crucian writer and   activist, Hubert Harrison, the weekend of March 26-29. Saturday evening, March 28th, there will be a performance of David Edgecombe’s play “Hubert Harrison".
    Today we meet two gentlemen who diligently worked to bring the biography of a forgotten Virgin Islander to the forefront. One, an author, the other, a playwright, but they both wrote about Crucian-born Hubert Harrison,
    David Edgecombe, writer, director, instructor, and playwright has worked at the University of the Virgin Islands from 1990 to present. In 1992, he became director of the Reichhold Center for the Arts. He's "internationally known for several plays, including "Strong Currents" and "Coming Home to Roost". Upon returning to the Islands, David joined the faculty at the University of the Virgin Islands and became their artist-in-residence, premièring his play, "Heaven".
    Jeffrey Perry, formally educated at Princeton, Harvard, Rutgers, and Columbia, preserved and inventoried the "Hubert H. Harrison Papers" and helped to place them at the Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Columbia University and to develop the "Hubert H. Harrison Papers, 1893-1927: Finding Aid." He is the editor of A Hubert Harrison Reader (Wesleyan University Press, 2001) and the forthcoming "Writings of Hubert Harrison."
    Jeffrey will deliver a keynote address and a presentation discussing his work uncovering Harrison’s writings and documenting his story and work in Perry’s book, “Hubert Harrison: The Voice of Harlem Radicalism, 1883-1918” (Columbia University Press).
