    Was Arrow Air flight R1285 JW an act of terrorism or neglect by the DOD?

    in Books

    Mike Essen will be filling in for Karina Schmitt when we talk to former Flight Attendant for Arrow Air, Saul Montes-Bradley, II about the fatal crash of Arrow Air flight R1285JW, which was chartered under contract with the Department of Defense to ferry troops from the Multinational Force and Observers. For over 30 years, Saul has wondered if there would ever be a serious investigation of the crash at Gander. Was it willful blindness that marred the initial investigation of the disaster at Gander, which continues to misguide policies that have only enabled and strengthended Islamic National Socialist movements in the Middle East and around the world. Was the crash neglect or terrorism covered up?
    Saul Montes-Bradley, II is the author of Gander: Terrorism, Incompetence, and the Rise of Islamic National Socialism, which is available on

    Close Up Radio Spotlights Author Jeffrey C. Parker

    in Books

    Pittsburgh, PA – Jeffrey C. Parker is a social worker specializing in addiction recovery and the author of Take the High Road: It's Not Where You Begin, It's How You Finish, a memoir of his battle to overcome addiction.
    “We are the chosen ones who can’t put it down once we pick it up,” says Parker. “You choose the drug, but once you become addicted, it chooses you.”
    Parker says he was on a path of self-destruction from the time he was small child. The youngest of three in an abusive environment, he had run away from home before he was seven years old. He started drinking at the age of 12. By the time he was a teenager, he was getting blackout drunk three times a week. Even worse, he suffered from epilepsy and struggled with his concentration, sleep, anger management and impulse control.
    Through hard work and determination, Parker was able to change the course of his life from self-destruction to success and happiness.
    Take the High Road is a must read for anyone struggling with addiction.
    Though Parker has been clean and sober for 23 years, he still considers himself an addict.
    “When you start thinking you have this beat, you're on your way toward a relapse,” says Parker. “I won't take credit for getting clean, but I will take credit for staying clean. I've had plenty of reasons I could have returned to it and every day I've chosen not to.”
    Take the High Road: It's Not Where You Begin; It's How You Finish is available on Amazon

    in Books

    The Pat Conroy Literary Center and the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network proudly present executive director Jonathan Haupt in conversation with novelist Grady Hendrix, author of The Final Girl Support Group.
    "Take slasher movie adoration, critique, and satire, mix with compelling, flawed characters and neck-breaking plot twists, and drop it all into an industrial blender with large blades. Voilà, you now have Grady's maniacally clever and compulsively readable The Final Girl Support Group."—Paul Tremblay, author of Survivor Song "The Final Girl Support Group is a deft examination of how our culture's obsession with misogynistic violence destroys the lives of women and how those women are able to keep fighting and living after unthinkable trauma. The beating heart of this book is empathy and it's set into a lightning-paced, vicious thriller. Reading it was a catharsis. Absolutely unmissable."—Mallory O'Meara, author of The Lady from the Black Lagoon
    GUEST: Grady Hendrix is an award-winning novelist and screenwriter living in New York City. He is the author of Horrorstör, My Best Friend's Exorcism, We Sold Our Souls, and the New York Times bestselling The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires, which is being adapted into a series by Amazon Studios.
