    Warrior Saints -- Write Stuff -- 8/25/2020

    in Books

    Mary Hunter just found out she's part angel. Now all she has to do is find out what demon is trying to kill her in this supernatural superhero series. Strange days have come to the halls of Stonehaven Academy. From brutal fights in the supernatural realm with a demon-like presence, to battling obstacles in the halls at school, Mary knows she’s different. She just doesn’t understand why. Then it gets even weirder. As her supernatural battles increase, she is drawn into friendships with others who seem to be as confused about their bizarre abilities and encounters as she is. Now that Mary, Deacon, Scout, and Ivy have found each other, what is their purpose and why? And who gifted these newly-named Warriors, and how do they manage their powers and maneuver the confusing maze of school, family, romance—and the occasional demonic force?

    Kurdish Author Ava Homa Joins Host Susan Wingate on Dialogue!

    in Books

    Set in Iran, this extraordinary debut novel takes readers into the everyday lives of the Kurds. Leila dreams of making films to bring the suppressed stories of her people onto the global stage, but obstacles keep piling up. Leila’s younger brother, Chia, influenced by their father’s past torture and imprisonment, and his deep-seated desire for justice, begins to engage with social and political affairs. But his activism grows increasingly risky, and one day he disappears in Tehran. Seeking answers about her brother’s whereabouts, Leila fears the worst and begins a campaign to save him. But when she publishes Chia’s writings online, she finds herself in grave danger as well.
    DAUGHTERS OF SMOKE AND FIRE is an evocative portrait of the lives and stakes faced by 40 million stateless Kurds and a powerful story that brilliantly illuminates the meaning of identity and the complex bonds of family, perfect for fans of Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner and Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun.
    Ava Homa is a writer, journalist, and activist specializing in women’s issues and Middle Eastern affairs. She holds an MA in English and creative writing from the University of Windsor in Canada. Her collection of short stories, Echoes from the Other Land, was long-listed for the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award, and she is the inaugural recipient of the PEN Canada-Humber College Writers-in-Exile Scholarship. She was born and raised in the Kurdistan Province in Iran and now divides her time between Toronto and the Bay Area. Daughters of Smoke and Fire is her debut novel.

She inspired me to work with children who had reading difficulties. She is now a consultant and has written many books to help teachers with students who have learning disabilities. She is on the show because not only has she written a picture book but now she has a brand new memori, Avanti, which is about her family.  During this pandemic it is always fun to learn more about authors and poets you might not know. David Lewis Paget has written over ten books both poetry and fiction and non-fiction. He has a very interesting background I know you are going to want to hear about.I know that you are going to love this show. As always there might be some surprises and serious callers are welcome to call into the show to ask a question of our guest.
