Bill welcomes authors Tyron Greer and Beth Weir to the show, who were two of seven contributors to the essay and poetry collection Writing While Masked, a book born from the challenges of lockdown.
Tyson Greer is an award-winning writer who, for twenty years, ran her own media company, Tyson Greer….Writes, writing on topics from art to virtual reality for national, regional, and local magazines. She also wrote and directed corporate television and documentaries, which aired on local cable and KCTS-9, and taught screenwriting for the University of Washington. Tyson authored a book for the Microsoft Press Strategic Technology series that was published in eight languages and has contributed to, ghost-written, or edited other non-fiction books. She is also an accomplished visual artist whose works are in U.S. private collections.
Beth Weir is a former elementary teacher and college professor in education with an interest in literacy acquisition. She has had a life-long interest in oral storytelling and is the author of Introducing Children to Folk Tales. She has published articles in airline and gardening magazines and blogged on behalf of Dunn Gardens when she worked as the director for five years.
Susannah Kathleen Douglas hails from the beautiful twin-island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. She is the last child of Merlin and Lloyd Douglas. At 44 years old, she is a divorced mother of two children, both of whom have challenged her to be the best version of herself.
As a disciple of Jesus Christ, Susannah believes that the Bible is the best book ever written. An entrepreneur, Susannah’s passion is connecting with people. Her desire is to see them fulfill the will of God for their lives and to walk in Authenticity.
With a Diploma in Cosmetology, Susannah has helped to transform people from the inside, and out, believing that true Beauty radiates from within. After years of running away from the call to write, Susannah finally surrendered this aspect of her life to the Lord - writing had always been a passion but she never felt equipped or qualified to do so. In 2021, she signed up for a "Writing to Heal" class and with the support and encouragement from the class teacher, she began writing again, with purpose.
Susannah's love for poetry was ignited. Something about poetry caused her to express her once silenced, suffocated feelings and gave her a new level of hope and fulfillment. Susannah began to write her books, hopefully soon to be published, and began to share her poetry with a few friends. She went deeper and wrote more with the support and encouragement received.
Believing in God’s timing, she knows He is orchestrating this season of her life by aligning her with the right people. For Susannah, the future is filled with the manifestation of all that God has promised with His Holy Spirit as her guide. She knows that when the time is right the Lord will allow all her books that HE has placed inside of her to be published.

Adam Lankershim's life has been extremely hard and good luck free. Unable to afford decent healthcare in an America that has evolved into an impoverished and crime ridden nation, he seeks out the help of a veterinarian who gives him a dire diagnosis. He has less than a month to live. Finally, he decides to live life to the fullest- despite the fact that he only has weeks to live. With his faithful cat Miss Fortune and his best friend and lesbian soul mate Sara by his side, he heads off to Las Vegas to live out his dreams. Accompanying him on his mission he brings a whole lot of newfound cash that he retrieved after witnessing a deadly drug deal gone bad. This all happened in a secret tunnel beneath the tanning salon where he worked. With involved nefarious individuals seeking him out, it was another good reason to flee to the bright lights of Vegas.
But Adam's ultimate destiny will be to rescue a woman from a reality TV show where immigrants are held in cages and compete to become Americans. Will Adam's bad luck life change and how will this final journey he is on impact the others in his life?

American history is full of larger-than-life characters, many of whom made a difference that went unnoticed and unrecognized. One of those was William Gould (W.G.) Raymond. His descendants, brother and sister William and Donna Burtch have rectified this, in "W.G. - The Opium-Addicted, Pistol-Toting Preacher Who Raised the First Federal African-American Union Troops," on Sunbury Press Books.
Joining host Lawrence Knorr, the Burtches tell of Raymond's early life in the Finger Lakes Region New York State, his later move to Pennsylvania, and how he went from a Baptist minister to enlisting in the Union forces. Appointed by President Abraham Lincoln, Raymond served as a hospital chaplain in Washington, DC, and was the first commanding officer responsible for raising what became the 1st United States Colored Troops (U.S.C.T.) of the District of Columbia.
While poiltical infighting pushed Raymond's role out of the history books, he could not be fully erased. Drawing from his autobiography, "Life Sketches and Faith Work," plus that of Civil War scholars, the life of Raymond is examined during tulmultuous professional and personal times, including an addiction to opium, and how his spirituality, Raymond found, surpassed any denomination.
An author and essayist, William Burtch has written for several publications and anthologies. Donna Burtch has published a biography of their late father's life, "In the Key of the Sea: the Life and Times of William A. Burtch. They both live in Columbus, Ohio.

“Grease, Tell Me More, Tell Me More is a fabulous rockin’ and rollin’ origin story with every juicy inspiration that went into creating it. . . . A must read for all Grease fans.” —Didi Conn, Grease’s “Frenchy” Grease opened downtown in the Eden Theatre February 14, 1972, short of money, short of audience, short of critical raves, and seemingly destined for a short run. But like the little engine that could, this musical of high school kids from the 1950s moved uptown. On December 8, 1979, it became the longest running show—play or musical—in Broadway history.
Here are stories—some touching, some hilariously funny—from names you may recognize: Barry Bostwick, John Travolta, Adrienne Barbeau, Treat Williams, Marilu Henner, Peter Gallagher, and others you may not. Tom Moore directed the original Broadway production, eight national tours, and two London productions of Grease in the West End. He also directed Broadway’s Pullitzer Prize–winning ’night Mother, the subsequent film, and other Broadway productions receiving two Tony nominations. Moore directed many years of film and television, earning three Emmy nominations along the way. His most recent project was the documentary on the Flying Trapeze, The Flight Fantastic. Adrienne Barbeau won a Tony nomination and Theatre World Award for her performance as Rizzo in the original Broadway production of Grease. She has appeared in over four hundred films and television shows, including the hit series Maude and HBO’s Carnivale.

Late Night... Another late night and my thoughts wander... drawing from my memories, strong emotions, needing to be expressed. My pen almost burning in my hand as I hold it firmly, trying to begin. My thoughts jumbled together, the only common thread is the emotion. Suddenly, my pen glides on paper, sentences appear, first one then another. Verse after verse, each yearning to be heard and understood. Seeking refuge in the quiet of the late night. These confessions calm my soul. Jean The Curtain Opens ... The Stage is lit...C'mon ... Step Up... Grab Up The Mic and Say Something!!
