Interview with Travel Memoir Author Jill Dobbe

Author Jill Dobbe joins BookGoodies host Deborah Carney to talk about writing her fascinating travel memoir.

Here-We-Are-exterior-ver1JPG
Who says you can’t travel with kids? Dan and I find out we can do just that as we set off with our two very young kids, first to live and work on an island far out in the Pacific, then on to the continent of Africa with a few stops in between. Armed with strollers, diapers, and too much luggage, we travel to over twenty-five countries throughout a ten year span, while working together as international overseas educators.

After surviving typhoon Yuri, almost being mauled by lions, and, nearly being shot by a presidential guard, we happily endure all of the good times and bad, while living life to the fullest. A decade’s worth of experiences and lifelong memories remain with us, as we return to the U.S., now with two teenagers in tow, and begin to experience our very own version of reverse culture shock.

Author Bio:
Since writing HERE WE ARE & THERE WE GO, her first memoir about her travels, Jill has lived in Cairo, Egypt; Gurgaon, India; and Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where she now resides with her husband, Dan. Jill continues to work as an elementary administrator and writes on the side. She and Dan have weekly chats with their kids, who now as adults, can’t seem to stop traveling either. Her daughter graduates college soon and will travel to Honduras to teach. Her son is currently away at his first year of medical school. Every June, they travel from their separate locations and meet up together again, at their home on a lake in Wisconsin.

Wrestler Richie Frieman Talks About Writing Children's Books

Author Richie Frieman joins BookGoodies host Deborah Carney to discuss writing, publishing and all things book related.

Bio From Amazon Profile:
A Modern Day Renaissance Man, Richie Frieman has had a career spanning everything from professional artist, to columnist, to journalist, entrepreneur, inventor and even professional wrestler. With the release of Terple, Frieman is quickly becoming one of the most poetic and talented voices in children’s literature today. “Terple – Always Dream Bigger” (Trust Your Cape Publishing) is the follow up to Frieman’s 2008 release, “Terple – The Sky Is Just The Start”.

“Terple – Always Dream Bigger” is a winner of The 2012 Gelett Burgess Children’s Book Award for Best Poetry and Rhyme book, as well has been awarded the Literary Classics Seal of Approval. An avid philanthropist, Frieman uses Terple to give back to those in need by offering a portion of his profits from his book sales (for the life of it) to a different charity every month.

Believing that every great idea starts with a pen, paper and a vision, Frieman launched his award winning internet magazine The Pen’s Eye View (www.PensEyeView.com) on April 1, 2007. To date, PensEyeView.com has featured over 1,000 consecutive interviews with a different artist, musician, and visionary from all over the globe – a different one every 48 hours – from emerging artists to Grammy winners.

Frieman was awarded a Laureate medal at the 2008 Computerworld Honors Program (formerly known as the Smithsonian Award). He is the youngest recipient of this award and PensEyeView.com is the smallest company to ever have this honor bestowed on them.

Frieman is also known as The Modern Manners Guy for QuickAndDirtyTips.com (Macmillan Publishing) – a humorous weekly column and podcast about manners and etiquette. Inventing and entrepreneurship has also been one of Frieman’s passions, having launched his revolutionary fashion accessory called Collar Keeps which helps eliminate the fly away collar on dress shirts. He is also the Co-Founder of Charm City Babies, a vintage rock n’ roll, pop culture inspired baby clothing line.

Along with Frieman’s work in the arts, he has been known as the professional wrestler, “The Thrill From Israel” Buster Maccabi since 2000, having won more than a dozen titles in various federations throughout the country. Please visit www.RichieFrieman.com and on Twitter @RichieFrieman

Author of Short Scripts Genevieve Sipperley Interview with @BookGoodies

Author Genevieve Sipperley joins BookGoodies podcast host Deborah Carney to talk about books, writing and current projects.

From Genna:
I was born and raised in Alaska. My town, called North Pole, was pretty small and I spent many nights writing away in my room as I watched snow fall outside my window. When I was younger, I started off writing mostly poetry and short stories. I was first nationally published when I was 16 and my first volume of poetry was published when I was 18. I had some minor success as a poet and short story writer, but after I graduated high school and left home for Chicago, I went to film school and that is when I knew I wanted to make the transition to screenwriting. During film school I studied Motion Picture and Television Screenwriting and I’ve been writing screenplay and scripts full-time ever since. I’ve sold a handful of short scripts and currently have a feature script being optioned.

“Lights, Camera – Wait, What?” is more than just a book of short scripts. There are notes on filmmaking that are ideal for new or independent filmmakers, as well as a quick guide on how to read a script. This book is filled with screenplays to film, scripts to read as short stories, or notes to use as a guide when writing or filming a script. Enjoy all of the different genres, characters, and ideas in this book of collected original short screenplays.

Author Rob Riley joins BookGoodies host Deborah Carney to talk about his book, how he choose a publisher, his writing style and tips for writers.


Author Bio:
I live with my wife, Mary Lynne, in southeastern Wisconsin. I spent thirty-two years as a Milwaukee police officer: Seven years doing undercover narcotics investigations and twenty-two years as a major crimes detective. Writing and reading have been lifelong passions; I began by writing short stories more than thirty years ago. Of course, police work provided both the insight and inspiration for my PI mystery novel, Portrait Of Murder. Two additional novels that feature my main character, Private Investigator Jack Blanchard, have been completed.

Gregg Feistman Author Interview with @BookGoodies

Author Gregg Feistman joins BookGoodies podcast host Deborah Carney to talk about books, writing and current projects.

Gregg Feistman is an Associate Professor of Public Relations at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He resides in Southern New Jersey.

From Gregg:
I had my debut novel “The War Merchants” (a political thriller) published by a print-on-demand publisher, Strategic Book Publishing. My route to publishing was rather unusual. Without an agent to pitch my work, I was referred to them from another traditional publisher who asked if I minded if they sent SBP my manuscript! It was my intention all along not to go the self-publishing/vanity press route. I wanted a more professional look to my work. I’m currently finishing my second novel and intend to pursue traditional publishers again.

One thing I have learned about being an author however, is that much of the marketing and promotion falls to me. I have used a combination of traditional and social media to promote my book, from Facebook, LinkedIn, websites, blog interviews, podcasts and internet radio interviews, to book signings, book fairs and mass media interviews. I think my experience would be valuable to new and experienced authors alike.

Curtis Kessinger Author Interview Podcast With @BookGoodies


Curtis Kessinger, Founder of Film School Now and Success Minded Coaching and author/publisher of two books Just Shoot It! and The Ultimate You joins BookGoodies host Deborah Carney to discuss how and why he decided to write his books. He also shares his views on publishing and his writing style.

From Curtis:

The initial reason I self-published my filmmaking book Just Shoot It! is that the big name in filmmaking books told me I would probably never make a dime if I published the book myself or even had him publish it. Six years later the money keeps coming in, so I am of the ilk to always prove people wrong when they say something cannot be done. Everything is possible.
My second book The Ultimate You: Achieving Greatness is my success book which gives people the information they need to be successful in whatever it is they choose. It is meant for those underdogs out there who have dreams they need to achieve and this book will give them the tools to do it.

Podcast With Work At Home Mom – Author Victoria Marin

WAHMoms/WAHDads host Deborah Carney is joined by guest Victoria Marin.

“I would like to share that my son is featured as a Youth Luminary for his courageous rise against bullying and for his passion for helping raise awareness for the power of dance for all those with special challenges.” – Victoria


Tell us a little about yourself:
Victoria Marin graduated from New York University in 1995 with a degree in Occupational Therapy. Early in her career, she was an instructor for the Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants Program at Rockland Community College and was a member of the faculty at Dominican College. Now, as a stay-at-mom of 5 children, she is an author of children’s literature. Her first book, Aiden’s Waltz, is about a young boy with Autism who overcomes his challenges through the art of ballroom dancing. Aiden’s Waltz was awarded 5 stars from Readers Favorites Book Reviews and was recommended as a teaching tool for parents and educators.

As a work at home parent what is your biggest challenge?
As a work at home parent, my biggest challenge is finding a quiet area to write and conduct interviews. With 5 children, it can be very noisy and distracting at home. Quite often, business phone calls are made from my car! My younger children do not understand that I am working from a home office, therefore, interruptions are frequent. Nonetheless, with organization and determination, I am able to succeed as a work at home parent.

What is the biggest advantage to being a work at home parent?
The biggest advantage to being a work at home parent is that I can schedule around the needs of my family which allows me to be an active part of my children’s lives.

As a work at home parent what advice would you give other work at home parents?
I would advise other work at home parents to schedule “office hours” which fit into the hectic lives of your children. Another bit of advice would be to fall in love with your crock pot. By doing so, I am able to prepare home cooked meals which we can enjoy as a family each evening.

Author Shel Horowitz joins BookGoodies podcast host Deborah Carney to talk about books, writing and current projects.

“I make the world insist on knowing why you’re special, and I help the world see the value in your values.”

My primary niche is green marketing: braiding together the commonalities between professional communication and personal activism. I’ve been in both the marketing and environmental worlds since the 1970s, and for the last dozen years, have worked to combine them more systematically (though I actually had a few green clients all the way back to the early days).

A butterfly lights beside us, like a sunbeam…

and beauty belong to our world…
but then it flies on again, and although
we wish it could have stayed,
we are so thankful to have seen it at all.
~ Author Unknown

Review of The Adventures of KatGirl!

Author: Katherine Magnoli

Review Link:
(http://nadiajwriter.com/2012/08/09/introducing-katgirl)

The Adventures of KatGirl does a good job of capturing that first day at school with a bunch of kids who don’t really understand disabilities. The misconceptions the children have, as well as the curiosity and the questions they ask are true to life and it brought back a lot of memories for me. I liked the fact that Katherine is depicted as someone happy and even though she is upset by the comments that Timmy makes she stays true to herself and ends up making a new friend. I believe her ability to stay positive is her true superpower. The book stays primarily with the message that bullying can happen to anyone and that it can be overcome. It does not focus on or describe Katherine’s disability. The only time it does focus directly on the disability is when the children are asking questions, with the most insightful question being: “Can you walk at all?” To which Katherine replies, “yes, with crutches.” In my personal experience, when people see a wheelchair they dismiss the possibility that you can walk at all, and so I was glad for this clarification. Perhaps it will help young readers to understand those that look differently from themselves and open the door to find more answers to their questions. Overall, the book depicts a girl who is defined by her personality and not her disability…And really, isn’t that how it should be?
