Jim Greenwald and Mike Mullins some of the questions answered on this ten minute interview.
 

What caused you to write this book?  He wanted to attempt to make PTSD something that a non-sufferer could feel thru us in order to improve understanding.  Spouses and family have real difficulty in dealing with those who have the problem.

How did you get started writing?   I have written since I was a kid.  As I neared the end of my work career I thought it was time to do it.

Do you plan on doing another? Yes.  God willing, more than one.

Do you have a favorite poem? No. 

Which do you enjoy writing more, poetry or prose?  I love poetry.  I love prose. I love words.  I feared that the different approach to writing prose would hurt my natural instincts regarding poetry.

Do you have a favorite era?   I appreciate the unity of the 40s and the chaos of the 60s.

Will your next project be similar?   I am spreading my wings and in the midst of trying fiction.

What is reader response to OtM?  Last weekend I had a vet who bought the book in June.  He had a message from his wife.  She read it as well, which was our hope.  She told me “thanks for allowing her to feel what her husband feels and making PTSD even more real for her, in terms of the way it works on the mind of a vet.

ValerieOrmond retired as anavalintelligenceofficer and founded her own business, Veteran Writing Services, LLC. Herfirst novel,Believing In Horses”won theMilitary Writers SocietyofAmericaGold Medaland other awards. Her second novel, “Believing In Horses, Too” is currently a finalist in the Military Writers Society of America book awards for 2014. Valeries non-fiction stories have appeared in numerous books, magazines, and newspapers, and sheholdsmemberships inwriting, equine, and veteransorganizations.

Valerieowns and ride horses andserves as Secretary oftheMarylandHorseCouncil. She is happily married to Navy veteran Jaime Navarro.

 

“BELIEVING IN HORSES, TOO” by Valerie Ormond - Synopsis

Sadie Navarro worries about her Navy father serving in Afghanistan. She turns to her love of horses to distract from her secret problems in her thirteenth year. Sadie commits to showing at the largest local horse show and volunteering for a therapeutic riding program – both brand new to her. With her belief in horses, a goal to make her father proud, and the support of family and friends, Sadie feels life moving in the right direction again.   

That is, until one of the therapeutic riding programs arranges for Sadie to assist wounded warriors. Sadie wants to back out, but knows she can’t. That’s not who she is. So instead, she wonders how she will find the strength to face her deepest fears head on.

And then there’s the first horse show. Unnerved by the enormity of the event and discovering how hard it is to show her inexperienced horse, Lucky, Sadie panics. An unwelcome show ring rival, Rachel, makes matters worse. But strong-willed Sadie makes it through the day with the help of her quirky and caring friend, Brady. Sadie only has to breathe deep and stay calm through two more shows to reach her goal of competing in front of her dad.

Sadie gains confidence through experience with the horses and the people she helps through equine therapy. She develops friendships and learns about bravery, patience, and compassion. Standing up for Brady to a school bully comes naturally. She becomes the mentor others have been to her. Sadie learns to compete. 

             Days before Sadie’s father returns home, rival Rachel injures Lucky in a riding accident. Rather than admit defeat, Sadie decides to show one of her barn’s rescue horses in the final competition. Sadie understands by choosing his horse, she likely won’t win, but takes her chance on the underdog. Against the odds, she wins Champion of the year in front of her newly-returned war hero father. At the end of the show, Sadie finally confronts Rachel over her consistent rude behavior and unkind remarks. Sadie knows she should have stood up to Rachel earlier, but she didn’t have the strength to do so until this time.

              Although elated with her year-end win, Sadie doesn’t think her father appreciates how hard she worked or how much she grew up during his absence. At a unique equine therapy demonstration for military families, the horses help bring out unspoken human emotions in the Navarro family. Sadie comes to realize she earned her father’s respect through her actions and who she has become -- not her winning performance in the show ring.

Most of us hate looking at analytics. I of course being the Effective Detective, LOVE looking at analytics. But even I know that it is way too easy to get hung up about one or two numbers. Numbers are important to your business, but sometimes you need to step away and take a different perspective - look at numbers from a different angle. I'll tell you about my own experience with this problem in the video.

Pickysaurus Mac

 

by Sandra Miller Linhart

Illustrated by Sean M Wright

 

Pickysaurus Mac Byline:

     When food tastes like mud, smells like trash and feels like mush, what's a hungry dinosaur to do?

 

Pickysaurus Mac Synopsis:

     Pickysaurus Mac is not your typical dinosaur.  Mealtimes pose a special problem for our picky little friend.  Sometimes foods smell too gross to eat, they taste different than they look and their textures feel like garbage in his mouth.  His friends tell him to eat right to stay healthy, but some things you just can't fix with words.

 

Talking Points:

Sensory Processing Disorder

     Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), also referred to as Sensory Integration Dysfunction, is a neurological disorder most often diagnosed in early childhood; it is not synonymous with learning disabled.  Many children diagnosed with SPD are intellectually average or above average in intellect.  Understanding the challenges they face daily is the first step for caregivers in guiding them in learning to tolerate the senses, and ultimately succeed in society.

     SPD children must learn to navigate through the "wires crossed" between their senses and their brain receptors.  Symptoms span a wide range between oversensitive or under-sensitive to stimulation of any, some, or all of their senses. 

     One symptom of SPD is the adverse affect food (taste, smell, texture) has on our senses.  Often children who have SPD are labeled as "picky eaters," punished for a condition over which they have little or no control.  These children have a small selection of foods called "safe foods" they're able to tolerate, making meal times unpleasant.  Encouraging one's self to experience new textures and foods in a safe, unforced way helps the SPD child learn sensory tolerance.

     For more information, contact the Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation at http://www.spdfoundation.net


Author Bio:

     Sandra Miller Linhart was born and raised in the somewhat isolated, but nonetheless beautiful, mountainous town of Lander, Wyoming.  Here she was able to cultivate her love of reading, due in no small part to the fact the nearest decent record store was a good two hour drive away, and the one local radio station played only country and classic music.  Were it not for this, Ms. Linhart might today be a rock star, or, at the very least have better taste in music.  As it turned out, however, there was a well-stocked and constantly updated library much closer and much less expensive than the local movie theatre.  Thus, the young Ms. Linhart often found herself taking much longer journeys into the wonderful worlds created by authors like Ursula K. LeGuin, Judy Blume, Madeleine L’Engle, Stephen King and, of course, Erma Bombeck in the dusty basement which was the children’s section of the Fremont County Public Library.

     Growing up in poverty, Ms. Linhart’s escape from her stark reality came at no cost to her on printed invitations neatly tucked between the beaten covers gathering dust on the library bookshelf, yearning for attention.  Not content to simply travel to these exotic places created by the wordsmiths she admired, Ms. Linhart soon knew she wanted to craft her own destinations for others to enjoy.  She applied herself wholeheartedly to her studies, knowing diligence and discipline would avail her in the pursuit of her goal of becoming a successful author.

     Ms. Linhart’s formal education includes CA Barstow College, where she studied and excelled in Art & Design, as well as receiving a degree in Sociology, focusing on family and child psychology, both of which were of great use to her as she had both a family and children of her own.

     Ms. Linhart also attended the University of Georgia, where her picture book manuscript, Daddy's Boots received the 2005 Dixie Lee Connor Award for Best Children’s or Young Adult Manuscript at the Harriette Austin Writers’ Conference in Athens, GA.

     Ms. Linhart currently resides in Colorado where she’s knuckle deep in her second installment of the Jones, JEEP, Buck & Blue book series, Stuck in the Middle, which follows the foursome’s adventures in Middle School.  Additionally, she’s working on a YA book series, Hallie of the Harvey Houses.  Two more picture books are in production and are due out in late 2013; Mixed Up!, and What Does a Hero Look Like?

 

Author Awards:

     In addition to being awarded the 2005 Dixie Lee Connor's Best Manuscript in the Children and YA, Daddy's Boots was named the July 2010 MWSA "Book of the Month," and it took the Silver Award at MWSA's 2010 Writer's Conference in the Children Under 12 category in Pittsburgh, PA, and a Gold Medal (1st Place) at the 2010 Branson Stars and Flags Book Award Program in Branson, MO.  Momma's Boots shared the prize in the same contest, and took the Bronze at the MWSA's 2010 Children Under 12 category.  The year prior, The Elementary Adventures of Jones, JEEP, Buck & Blue took 3rd place in the Children's Under 12 category at the 2009 MWSA Annual Writers' Conference in Orlando, FL. Pickysaurus Mac was nominated in the MWSA 2013 Children Under 12 category in Dayton, OH.

Synopsis of FLYING SOLO

French Cajun Nora Broussard Greenwood was born with the wanderlust. Her adventurous spirit doesn’t fit the sedate expectations of catholic 1960s New Orleans suburbia. On a whim, she takes flying lessons to become a pilot. Experiencing the freedom of flight is liberating. However an illicit affair with her pilot instructor forces action. When she confronts her ruthless husband for a divorce, she is cast out sans her children and threatened with her life. Desperate to get them back and gain liberty, she steals her husband’s plane. Trials and tribulations erupt as she navigates the turbulence her life has become. In a bizarre twist of fate, she serves as caregiver to her lover’s sickly wife as a means to survive; hoping he will decide she is his soul mate. But is that to be? Nora must make the make the most difficult decision of her life in order to get things back on track.

FLYING SOLO…the first book -

SOLO VIETNAM….the second book

More Bad News from Facebook 
I admit to never having had a great affinity for Facebook and other types of Social Media - at least for marketing as I see a lot of people use it. A recent article from Ad Age just pushed me further away (but not from ads - I'll be discussing that more in the future.) However, I think my position is misunderstood. Check out this week's video and see what I mean.

Sunday, March 16 was the last night of the beautiful, interactive art installation Congregation in Market Square. For more than three weeks, Congregation turned Market Square into a wonderful playground as people of all ages, shapes, and sizes interacted with the lights, the music and each other.  
 
This installation was truly a social event got into the act as players waiting to be hi-lighted by a spotlight that sensed where the people were and sensed movement.  It was interesting to watch as participants watched both the screen and the outlines in the center of the square to see where their movement would be picked up.  Josh Kurnot, WVU commented that this was a "live social media event' as he watched people taking pictures and videos. this was truly an innovative art installation that was enjoyable to five years olds or 85 years old and the great part about is it was free, another Pittsburgh first.

Boys of Diamond Hill

Boys of Diamond Hill Book Cover
Military Writers Society of America2012 Gold Medal for History

The Boys of Diamond Hill is a biography about a family of soldiers from Abbeville County, South Carolina.  The events of the 1860s swept them from their farms to distant battlefields covering almost every theater of the war they were fighting for independence from the northern government.  They left behind an extensive collection of letters detailing their experiences.

This work was released March 24, 2011 from McFarland Publishers.

This work follows brothers: William, Daniel, Pressley, Thomas and Andrew Boyd along with Fenton Hall, the husband of their eldest sister. Daniel, Pressley and Andrew served in the Seventh South Carolina Infantry; William in the First South Carolina Rifles; Thomas in the Nineteenth South Carolina Infantry and Fenton in the Sixth South Carolina Cavalry. This sweeping work tracks their participation in the war on nearly every front that the Confederacy fought on. Northern Virginia, Mississippi, Tennessee and the Charleston coastal defense. Finally it follows Daniel Boyd as he fights with Johnston’s Army of Tennessee in the Carolina’s Campaign up until the surrender at Bennett Place near Durham, North Carolina.

Also covered extensively are close friends and relatives often mentioned. As a result, one family — the Alewines — are followed after the war on their journey into the western wilderness of Arkansas where they became one of the pioneering families in that section.

The Boys of Diamond Hill by JK Jones is now available for order from Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
