Life Interrupted, Its Not All About Me

 

Author Chris Tatevosian, was the guest speaker tonight. He is host of Blog Talk Radio‘s “Winning Life Through the Pain” along with being a motivational speaker and a columist. He shared about himself, how he dealt with the MS. He gives advice a key suggestion of communication in any relationship with or without a disability. You can check out his website at Life Interrupted and you can up for his book at http://www.tatepublishing.com/

“Life Interrupted-It’s Not All About Me by Chris Tatevosian guides others with chronic illnesses to deal more positively with feelings of anger, self-pity and diminishing self-worth in order to keep their relationships strong and loving. Open, frank and filled with invaluable advice, this is a book for anyone who wants to deal positively with illness”

We discussed from the beginning when he was first told he had MS to discuss about the failure of his first marriage, meeting his current wife and writing the book along with his challenges to his accomplishments. I truly enjoyed talking with Chris. He is a delight to have on the show.

 

The 11th of November is a day we honor those service men & women who serviced in the military..our US Veterans.

It was the Veteran, not the reporter,

who has given us the freedom of the press.

It was the Veteran, not the poet,

who has given us freedom of speech.

It was the Vetran, not the lawyer,

who has given us the right to fair trial.

It was the Veteran, not the campus organizer,

who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the Veteran, who salutes the flag,

who served under the flag,

and whose coffin is draped by the flag,

who allows the protester to burn the flag.

On a sidenote: I had sent Chris a “Thank You” for particpating in my show. I received this today…

 

Hello Cat,

Thank you for the opportunity. You do a fantastic job facilitating an interview, which I have found to be a rare gift. I truly enjoyed being on the show and thank you so very much for letting others know about my book. Please let the folks in the chat room know that their questions and participation were awesome. If you are ever in need of a guest just let me know. And, thank you for sharing your life, as well. It was a pleasure meeting you. Please keep in touch and have a great weekend.

Blessings,

Chris

Tonight I had one of the authors, Ann Werner of the book “The Virgin Diaries”. She assisted her daughter Kimberely Johnson in putting together the book. I have the link on the side so that you can check it out. The interview was approx 45 minutes long..not bad. I am happy with the out come and I had a guest in the chat along with my other loyal listeners. This show is marked MATURE, only because of some of the things discussed. I need to remember to stop bringing in my personal stuff. Its difficult not too..just got to remember that for next time. Besides, who really listens anyway? People who already knew me and how I am and what I am all about…so, it shouldn’t be a huge shocker.

Well, last nights show was one of the biggest ones I have ever done. I had 12 live callers and 5 members in the chat. Matt Beckoff of The Beckoff Show along with his other co-host Rob called in to discuss horror films. They did really good and I think I did good as far as the production of the show. Still need to tune down the flirting, I try but I get caught up in talking to my “sausage feast” groupies. Too Funny, I love all my guys..they are great, supportive, loyal and loving.

Imagics and Other Family Stories

[the audio quality is poor was first recorded on Blog Talk Radio,  click here to view the show page] Cat's Tales Podcast

 

Francine Trevens was the latest guest on Cat’s Tales. We discussed her recent book titled “Imagics & Other Family Stories”. She has also written “Stories of Fairies; Elves and Little People. In High School she won a Boston Globe poetry contest, selling her poem when she was a teenager. She’s been writing, selling and winning prizes ever since. A native New Yorker, her family moved to Massachusetts where she married and had 2 daughters. Janine Robin founded and runs TADA! Youth Theater  in New York. Melissa Thea is a special education teacher and author of Melissa Thea’s Alpha BETTER BOOK. Francine was a theater/dance critic for the Springfield Daily News. After divorcing she returned to New York with her daughters, where she worked as a theatrical press agent, free lance writer, including the musical theater segment of McGraw Hill’s Encyclopedia of World Drama, magazine editor and stage director. Francine has had 6 books published, her last a 2010 Next Generation INDIE finalist award winner and currently writes dance features for the Art Times Journal. She has 5 grandchildren. She is chairperson emeritus of The Greater New York Independent Publisher Association and member of Dramatists Guild, Association of Theatrical Press Agent and Managers and Independent Book Publishers Association.

Neither of my parents suffered from any prejudices, and they raised me to think and judge for myself. So, when I returned with my 2 teenage daughters to my native NYC after divorce, it was not surprising I worked for theaters which had or were facing prejudice:An Irish theater, Jewish theaters  and gay theaters. I dedicated time and energies to getting them into the mainstream – and was instrumental in moving TORCH SONG TRILOGY from off off Broadway to Off Broadway and finally, Broadway. When a friend who ran a gay theater died, his publishing company had no takers.  An actress friend of mine and I took over the company and kept the works alive. That was 16 years ago. Gay theater has, to a great degree gone mainstream. The publishing company expanded to also publish works for the edification of learning challenged children, poetry and paranormal stories. It is my aim, now that I am sole proprietor after her death at the turn of the century, to awaken minds to realize they must judge for themselves, not merely parrot or rebel against what their parents or peers tell them. I strive for this in my own writing and in the books I publish. 2010 Indie Next Generation finalist award winner for the anthology of 27 plays by 14 authors. – Francine Trevens

Francine was a great guest to have on the show. She is very friendly and down to earth. We discussed some paranormal stories, mostly discussed her book and how the stories are about her real family members, like her mother and herself. Tho its not a scary book, the stories make the reader feel different emotions, from happiness to sadness. Worth the read for sure.

The “afterparty” was me, the host, talking about upcoming shows and Halloween being right around the corner and I was planning on playing some songs but couldn’t due to the switchboard disconnected on me. Oh well, next time for sure…I had a new loyal listener  …Jennisinindiana, she’s great gal, very supportive and looking forward to having a long friendship with her. Model T was there as well, love having him there. He comes up with great questions and opinions. I will try and continue to update my blogs, but those that know me know that I get bored quickly and drop the ball on most things.
