This Sunday Books that Make you host Desiree Duffy will be talking about Books That Make You think about issues revolving around ethnicity, sexism, and spirituality in these tumultuous times.
It never ceases to amaze how fiction mirrors real life. The fictional book, Dishonor Thy Father, is inspired by the real-life issue of “honor killings” set in the throes of racial protests in Los Angeles.
Today’s world is complex, and this book really makes you think about the layers that shape our world and our way of thinking. The brilliant aspect of it, it does it as a heart-pounding mystery thriller that keeps the pages flipping.
Desiree not only has one author with her, but the threesome who joined forces to bring Dishonor Thy Father together. Marilyn J. Anderson and Richard Rossner write under the combined alias of M.J. Richards. Having written the screenplay, they then teamed up with novelist and literary editor, Mike Robinson, to bring this novel to life.
Mike is also the author of The Enigma of Twilight Falls, The Prince of Earth, Skunk Ape Semester and the Atheist. Marylin wrote for TV on Murphy Brown, FAME, Friday the 13 the Series and was also on staff for Carol & Company staring Carol Burnett. She’s also authored other books like How to Live Like a Millionaire When You’re a Million Short (which was discussed on a previous show).
Richard was on the writing staff of Full House and he also wrote on the historic Live Aid Concert. He hosts several international podcasts, and he and his wife run workshops, The Power of Play, for cancer patients.
It is a heart pounding 30 minute discussion with Host Desiree Duffy Sunday February 7th at 8 or 11 pm eastern on MyStar95.com.Share:
