The Power of the Voice, interview with Lisbeth Hultmann

Being a person who earns a living with her voice, I was very excited to speak with Lisbeth Hultmann, author of “the Power of the Voice”.  Lisbeth is an opera singer who crafted a book not about singing, but about the voice.  Everyone’s voice and how to know it well.

“The voice reveals the body’s secrets—but it is also a tool with which we can resolve our obstacles.  Everything we forget, our body remembers. And everything the body remembers is reflected in the voice. Our conscious mind reacts to words, but our emotions react to the voice. Words can lie, but the voice never lies. The voice closes the deal—or bungles it for us and therefore it can be of great help to be conscious about our own voice and the signals it reflects. The Power of the Voice offers you the tools to understand which kind of Voice Type you are, which advantages and disadvantages it gives you, and how to work with it.”

It was truly enlightening speaking with Lisbeth.  Enjoy!

Florida Author, Mellissa Thomas, Talks about “Faded Diamonds”

As you know, I read A Lot!!!  When Mellissa Thomas contacted me about her book, “Faded Diamonds”, I didn’t know what to expect.

“Faded Diamonds” is

“An indie novel that touches on some of the deepest societal issues of our day: the broken home, absentee fathers, and the ripple effect the domestic discord has on the children who witness it, specifically daughters — poor self image, identity issues, mental disorders, and the seeming absence of hope.”

But it was so much more than that.  I couldn’t put it down.  Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to chat with Mellissa about it…and I can’t wait for the sequel.

Author, Kimberly Silva, Talks “Life at the End of the Tunnel”

This week I chatted with author, Kimberly Silva.  Kim wrote a beautiful book called “Life at the end of the Tunnel” about the loss of her husband, Kevin.  She talks about her experiences of loss and grief, and how life takes you in new directions.

Kim is now married to musician, Joe Silva, who was also a guest on the show.

She had me in tears during the interview.  Both tears of sadness as well as joy.

There is indeed a “Life at the End of the Tunnel”.

Director, Composer, Author, Brian Russell

I can start off by saying that Brian Russell has been married to Cheryl Ladd for 32 years. But I won’t….wait, I just did.

Brian is a 30 year veteran of the entertainment industry.  He wrote music for Elton John’s label, Rocket Records, produced movies and now he has written a fantastic book called “Scribe”.  I read a lot, and couldn’t put “Scribe” down.  I enjoyed it so much, I’m going to include a teaser.

“The idyllic Scottish country town of Kilbride hides a bloody past. Once home to a murderous tyrant and site of an epic battle for independence from England, now the quiet town’s biggest source of excitement is the pub band led by local beauty Moira McLeod. In Brian Russell’s SCRIBE (Kengorus Publishing/Amazon; September 23, 2013), the arrival of Hollywood director John MacIntyre and his beautiful movie star wife, Valerie, means things are about to get a lot more interesting. And deadly.”

Brian is such a nice guy, and I really enjoyed chatting with him.  If you like to read, I strongly recommend checking out “Scribe”

Interview with Anne Rice’s Assistant, and author, Becket

I have to say, Becket is a truly fascinating guy. He was a Benedictine monk who now travels the world with international, best selling author Anne Rice, as her assistant.  Cool!

Becket is the author of two book series: “Blood Vivicanti” and “Key, the Steampunk Vampire Girl”.  So how does a guy go from a cloistered life as a monk to an author about vampires and assistant to one of the most famous authors?  Give a listen and find out.

Oh yeah, he also composes music.  :-)

Catching up with American Idol Finalist, Scott MacIntyre

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to interview American Idol finalist, Scott MacIntyre.  I was so excited to be able to catch up with him a few years later.  Needless to say, no moss has grown under his feet.

He released a book “By Faith, Not by Sight”, that I can’t wait to read.  He has a new album out called “Heartstrings” featuring the beautiful song, “I am Hope” which I played on air.  It’s my new anthem.

Scott is finishing up his new Christmas album which I can’t wait to hear.  As you can see, I am a huge Scott MacIntyre fan.  He is a great role model for everybody, proving that no matter what life throws at you, there is always hope, trust and …music.

Amazing Lion Rescues

As a kid, I got excited about the circus.

All the acrobats, the ring master and of course, the animals.  As I got older, I learned that all is not what it appeared to be when it came to the circus.  The animals were not always treated well, and often times suffered horrible abuses at the hands of their handlers.

So, I stopped going to the circus.  It didn’t really change anything for the animals.  Sad to say, I never really gave it much thought.

In come Tim Phillips and Jan Creamer, two extraordinary people who risked everything to make a difference.  Their organization, Animal Defenders International, gives animals a voice and more importantly, a life.

Lion Ark, the movie

“Lion Ark is a vivid behind the scenes account of probably the most ambitious animal rescue ever undertaken, the finale of which sees 25 lions rescued from illegal traveling circuses across Bolivia being flown to safety in the USA.”

I had interviewed Tim and Jan while they were in post production of Lion Ark. This film documents Tim and Jan’s incredible efforts.   I’ve never imagined anything like it.  I found it difficult to sit through the documentation of the abuse of these majestic creatures, but it was worth it.

What a beautiful film.  Tim and Jan not only saved these lions, but created a sanctuary for them to live happy, healthy “lionlike” lives in Colorado.  They kept families together, including a mom and her cubs.

You can’t help but fall in love with these lions, and with Lion Ark.  It is a must see.
