"Kari Moran did a wonderful interview with me. Many unique questions, and for a change, this interviewer had read my book, "The Cavendon Women". Her charming manner also added a lot to our conversation."

 

-Barbara Taylor Bradford

"A Woman Of Substance" & "The Cavendon Women"

"It was great to talk with Kari Moran for her BookRadio show and a real privilege to be invited to respond to properly challenging questions which ranged wide and delved deep, posed by someone who'd undertaken a 20:20 inspection of my novel, and to find myself entering into the best kind of book-chat. And, then I started listening to the archive of BookRadio interviews. What a delight!"


-Elanor Dymot

"Every Contact Leaves A Trace"

Heroin, Cocaine and "the evil weed" Marijuana, were first banned in the U.S. a century ago under the Harrison Narcotics Tax Act. Harry Anslinger, the Federal Bureau of Narcotics Chief who launched the drug war in the 1930's, targeted Latinos, African-Americans and Chinese. His Agents hounded singer Billie Holliday for her heroin habit but covered up Judy Garland's. In "Chasing The Scream", Journalist and Author Johann Hari embarked on a 3 year, 9 nation quest to examine the societal impact of the drug war. Today, other countries are setting an example of how to lower the demand for illegal drugs by decriminalizing them and treating addicts who use drugs to mask their pain, be it psychological or physical.

It's 1968 when 13-year old Riley learns her beloved older brother Mick has gone missing in Vietnam. Her world was anchored around him at her family's Montana farm, but it begins to crumble. At 16, she meets Darrell, an older boy from the neighboring reservation. When he too is sent to fight, she's left on her own again but he doesn't know she's carrying his child. Leaving the baby with her parents, Riley heads to San Francisco and eventually, to Saigon. Her odyssey to find her way in the world spans 25 years of social change in post-Vietnam America. Along the way, she becomes both rescued and rescuer to a host of memorable characters...will she ever be able to rescue herself and find the courage to go home?

“ROCK

THE

BOAT”
How to Use Conflict to Heal and Deepen Your Relationship


By

Resmaa Menakem, MSWS, LICSW

resmaa menakem 

Most of us try to avoid conflict in our intimate relationships. But Couples Therapist and Domestic Violence Prevention expert Resmaa Menakem says non-violent confrontation is necessary if we truly want to deepen our connection and forge a stronger, more loving bond with our partners. In "Rock The Boat", he explains that the purpose of loving and making a deep commitment to someone is to achieve growth and transformation...not to lock into a power or control struggle that results in an emotional stalemate or violence. "Rock The Boat" explains the aspects of relationship conflict, how therapy really works and what couples can learn as they honestly confront what isn't working and evolve together in harmony.
