ONE LOOK AND IT'S ALL OVER...- Episode 157 - Aaron Ryan
ONE LOOK AND IT'S ALL OVER...MEET THE AUTHOR Podcast: LIVE - Episode 157Originally aired Wednesday May 22,2024Featuring Multi-genre author AARON RYAN.ABOUT AARON: Aaron Ryan lives in Washington with his wife and two sons, along with Macy the dog, Winston the cat, and Merry & Pippin, the finches. He is the author of the "Dissonance" series, several business books on multimedia production penned under a pseudonym, as well as a previous fictional novel, "The Omega Room." When he was in second grade, he was tasked with writing a creative assignment: a fictional book. And thus, “The Electric Boy” was born: a simple novella full of intrigue, fantasy, and 7-year-old wits that electrified Aaron’s desire to write. From that point forward, Aaron evolved into a creative soul that desired to create. He enjoys the arts, media, music, performing, poetry, and being a daddy. In his lifetime he has been an author, voiceover artist, wedding videographer, stage performer, musician, producer, rock/pop artist, executive assistant, service manager, paperboy, CSR, poet, tech support, worship leader, and more. The diversity of his life experiences gives him a unique approach to business, life, ministry, faith, and entertainment. Aaron’s favorite author by far is J.R.R. Tolkien, but he also enjoys Suzanne Collins, James S.A. Corey, Marie Lu, Madeleine L’Engle, C.S. Lewis, and Stephen King. Aaron has always had a passion for storytelling.Links to watch or listen to all episodes at:https://indiebooksource.com/podcast

WILL THERE BE MORE MURDERS IN MAGNOLIA BLUFF_ - Episode 155
MEET THE AUTHOR Podcast LIVE - Episode 155 - MAGNOLIA BLUFF CRIME CHRONICLES 2024 Reveal Part 2Originally Streamed LIVE Wednesday May 8,2024  Featuring Underground Authors April Nunn Coker and Joe Congel.ABOUT APRIL: I love words. Mostly written words. I love to write them and read them. A good book is a treasure. I have loved to read from the time I learned to recognize words, and as long as I can remember, I have loved to write. After I discovered Harriett the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh in my elementary school library, I determined to follow Harriett’s lead and observe the world around me, without spying, of course! That is when I began putting words on paper and creating worlds and characters and events from my imagination. Soon I was sharing stories with my friends and teachers. I received good grades on writing assignments and later became editor of my high school newspaper. I wanted to be a writer. God had other plans for me. I taught high school English and science for 30 years first. Then I became a published author. Life is full.ABOUT JOE: Joe Congel grew up in Syracuse, NY, and currently lives in beautiful Charlotte, NC. He got his first break in the world of publishing when he illustrated the humorous book, Housetraining Your VCR, A Help Manual for Humans, published by Grapevine Publications back in the early ’90s. A few years after Housetraining set the world on fire, Joe decided that he was better suited as a writer rather than as an artist, so he began crafting stories that allowed the reader to use their own imagination to add the visuals to the narrative. Since he’s enjoyed reading murder mysteries and PI detective stories all his life, he felt he had a pretty good grasp on how to create an engaging character in the world of private detecting. DEAD IS FOREVER is the first book in the Razzman Mystery Crime Files series, featuring Tony Razzolito, PI. The book is set in Syracuse, NY, and Charlotte, NC, with upcoming books in the series concentrated more in and around the Charlotte area. Joe is uniquely qualified to write about both areas of the country since he lived in Syracuse for 36 years and Charlotte for the last 25 plus years. When he’s not writing, you will most likely find him spoiling his three grandchildren.Watch or listen to all episodes at www.IndieBookSource.com/podcast

STORY TELLING AT ITS BEST- Episode 147 - SEAN O_NEIL
STORY TELLING AT ITS BEST.MEET THE AUTHOR Podcast: LIVE - Episode 147 - SEAN O'NEILOriginally Streamed LIVE Wednesday March 13,2024Featuring Author/filmmaker SEAN O'NEILWho hasn't had dreams about becoming a writer? The image of great writers and of their success is compelling. Their freedom in life appeals to many people and it certainly appealed to me.I did not come to this place naturally in life. I'm an MBA Grad and former CEO who left the executive world behind to ultimately opt for a life of adventure and writing. I've spent the last twenty-plus years journeying the world and finding human stories that spark my own stories. I look beyond the standard sites and tourist traps; I look for the human side that is often hidden behind them and the stories that others simply don't find. I was gifted with the ability to connect with people, regardless of background. I hold friendships from the Philippines to India and the Middle East to Central America. I have worked and lived on four continents and wherever I have been, I've found the path less traveled.I write from the heart and soul. I'm a natural storyteller. I do this because I want others to find the same joy in reading as I did when I was young. In my youth, my first book was Lord of the Rings, a gift from my father. From the day I picked that book up, I never stopped reading. I had always hoped that one day I could inspire someone to feel the same way about reading as I did then.Watch or listen to all episodes at www.IndieBookSource.com
