    Close Up Radio Spotlights Author, Entrepreneur, and Church Leader Darran Crager

    in Books

    Nampa, ID - Happily married for 37 years (with bumps along the way), author and spiritual coach Darran L. Crager and his wife Shelly, are working together to teach couples and individuals how to grow a joyful and content marriage that is full of hope.
    As an avid storyteller and reader, Darran has always had visions of storylines. About seven years ago, he started putting pen to paper, and soon had a manuscript that a publisher accepted almost immediately. Guarding the Past has helped changed reader lives, “by opening their eyes to lost truths in the world and through spiritual growth.”
    Since then, Darran has written six books, publishing five in four years (his next book, Hiding in the Cloud is scheduled to be released in September, 2024).
    In Battle in the Bedroom, Darran explains the four stages of intimacy and marriage. Is Your Life Out of Order? offers practical tips and strategies to restore balance and take charge of your life. His action/thrillers fiction books with Christian themes include In a Warrior’s Quiver, Guarding the Past, and Journey of the Hidden.
    According to Darran and Shelly, the biggest challenges facing marriages are communication, sex, and money. Sex in marriage is one of the biggest reasons for fights and divorce.
    What lies ahead? Darran working on several more thrilling fiction books. He and Shelly are planning a book together focusing on parenting, and they will continue holding marriage and parenting seminars through churches and private/Christian schools.

    Fake It Till You Make It (The Calvary Brothers Book 1) https://a.co/d/3h6jpmb
    Debbie Mason meets Lizzie Shane in this small-town romance where a burned-by-love veterinarian arranges a fake partnership with a down-on-her-luck city girl in order to save his family business.
    When Amarie Walker goes for something, she goes big—including starting over. Leaving her cheating ex and entire D.C. life in the rearview, she crash lands in a small town with no plan, no money, and no job. An opening at the animal clinic is the only gig for miles, no surprise considering the vet is a certified grump. If Eli Calvary ever cracked a smile, Amarie might faint on sight from shock. At least his adorable golden retriever appreciates her fabulousness…and shares her love of daily treats!
    When Eli took over his late father’s practice, he quickly discovered the clinic was facing foreclosure. So there’s no time for social niceties, especially not flirting, even with someone as gorgeous, bubbly, and business-savvy as Amarie. Yet when Eli needs to invent an investor on the fly, it’s her name that comes to his lips. Now, for the sake of their furry clients, Eli and Amarie hustle to save the clinic, trying to ignore the nonstop sparks between them. Because while their partnership may be fake, their connection already feels way too real.
    . .
    Cousins: All We Got Is Us https://a.co/d/5XcC7YW
    In this coming-of-age story, the Walker cousins face their own individual challenges while growing up in Washington, DC, during the 80s and 90s. In a world where it's easy to feel alone and lost, they lean on each other and vow to stick together. But one day, a tragic event tests the bonds of their unity, as family secrets begin to unravel. Soon they discover that their enemies were never those on the outside but the ones within their midst.

    Brown Posey Press Show--C. Flynt, Author of "Promised Rewards"

    in Books

    "Promised Rewards" is a tale that takes the reader through 9th Century England, and follows an aspiring Bard, who tells the tales of the axe-wielding hero Sigurd. They don't quite start out that way, but seeking adventure means conflict, friendship, and perhaps even love as the two make their way through uncertain times.
    The story is one of many from Clif Flynt, who joins the Brown Posey Press Show to discuss how Bard and Sigard came about. With a background in folk music, computer programming and as a technical author, Clif has turned his skills toward short stories and the soon-to-be ongoing epic of his heroes.
    Clif is also the author of "You're Not From Around Here, Are You?" These and other works can be found on his website. He lives Michigan.

    After Midnight with Rex and Pam...

    in Poetry

    Stop in After Midnight, We at L-N-P's After Midnight invite you to- dine on the words, voices of those giants; those ministers to the maelstrom brewing third eye bright, screamt from that reality, billowing, with their breaths. You've suckled with Bukowski, published obscene odes with Ginsberg, went on the Road with Kerouac and broke on through the other side with Morrison. Come .... walk past the edge of Midnight, open those doors wide and step through that portal. And as your eyes see, then the mind becomes a playground, a vast universe,  Unique. Free, of the constraints born in preconceived theories, where your voice, will be uncloaked, Heard.

    Glenn Interviews the Distinguished & Accomplished Actor Tomas Boykin S7 EP10

    in Performing Arts

    Born and raised in the "City of Brotherly Love," Philadelphia, PA; Tomas Boykin was born to a musician father and a stay at home mom. It could be said that the trajectory of Boykin's career as a creative was set early in childhood. He was encouraged to act in plays as early as the 3rd grade. "I was fortunate in that I had a few teachers in the Philly public school system who were also creatives and pretty active in the Philadelphia theatre scene when I was coming up. With my parents also encouraging me to express myself through the arts, performing in school plays seemed like a natural segue." By the end of his college career, which by the way was pre-law with a major in criminal justice, Boykin's resume included "A Chorus Line," "Pippin," "Finians Rainbow," "Oklahoma" and "The Little Foxes" as well as many other musical productions. Boykin trained and performed professionally in both Philly and NYC.... ...award winning performances in Sheri Bailey's theatrical adaptation of Nella Larsen's novel "Passing" where he originated the role of Albert Brickhouse at LA's historic Towne Street Theatre in 1997/98 and a decade later playing the role of Crooks in John Steinbeck's classic "Of Mice and Men" at Theatre Banshee in Burbank, CA. Ever the ascending, journeyman actor, Boykin's onscreen credits include his feature film debut in 1999's "Among Thieves," "Haunting of Winchester House," 20th Century Fox's riveting religious drama "I Am," "Voodoo Possession," "Lazarus Rising," "Junkie," the multi-award winning anti-apartheid thriller..."
