My friend and author, Pauline Baird Jones, referred me to Genie Davis when I asked if she knew any other authors who might like to be on the show. I am delighted that Genie agreed and I can’t wait to interview her!
Hello there, I’m a juggler. I think that fits me more than saying I’m a novelist, journalist, screenwriter, or blogger, at least right now. A lot of times I wish I could just sit down and work on one book project, or one screenplay – something I have done in the past, but that’s not the way life is going at the moment.
Right now, I’m working on a number of different projects, and keeping them all from crashing to the ground is pretty much what I do. Each has its own sphere of influence in my heart.
At the moment, I’m just getting a fairly major blog off the ground. It’s called DiversionsLA, and while a lot of the events I write about take place in or around Southern California, you don’t have to live in the City of Angels to enjoy it. The sub-title is “Art, Film, Food, Fun and Travel” and that pretty much sums it up. If you like contemporary art, independent film, cool restaurants, or you’re looking for some off-the-beaten path travel that you don’t have to sell your car to afford, then check us out. One of the things I love best about writing the blog is that I can write whatever I want to write, describe things I absolutely adore. So I’m very passionate about that, and about being to present artists and films and destinations that people might not have otherwise heard about. It’s very visual, too, most of the photos in each story are from Jack Burke, whose photography is really pretty amazing. If you don’t believe me, check out his awesome photos in the “Stars Over Moab” story about a glamping vacation.
Another big project right now is a really exciting Young Adult novel I’ve co-written with my writing partner on a number of projects, the very talented Linda Marr. The Cannibal Hunter” is a near-future coming of age story with a strong female protagonist, the first in a series that touches on love, family, government corruption, and yes, a cannibal virus. It’s entered in the Amazon Scout program, and if you click this link to help us nominate it for publication through that program, you can read a short excerpt, and if the book is published through Amazon Scout, you’ll get a free copy. Kind of a win/win. If you like romantic suspense, we have two releases out now, “Between the Sheets” and “Animal Attraction.” Let us know you’ve purchased one or the other and we’ll send you a fun short as an extra.
Another awesome shared project awaits: I’m writing one of a two novella set with my wonderful friend and brilliant writer Pauline Baird Jones for Holiday release. Very excited indeed about this new collaboration! (Editor’s note, Pauline B. Jones has also appeared on Ten Minutes in Tinsel Town.)
I’ve also got several solo projects out there, including a mystery I’m really attached to, which has been nicely compared to Sue Grafton’s style. “Marathon” is also the first in a series, but I’ll have a new stand alone, “Gun to the Head” out very soon.
And then of course there’s my marketing communications work and magazine writing. I write for both print and e-zines, on subjects from travel to toys, wine and beer, technology, and finance. You name it, I write it. In the mar/comm area I do corporate videos, write brochures, blogs, and social media.
Want to hear more about me juggling, tune in Tuesday! See the interview LIVE on Blab.
Genie loves checking out cool art exhibits; road trips; and reading with her kitty. We have a few things in common. It will be a great show.
Join us on Tuesday, September 8th on the next episode of Ten Minutes in Tinsel Town LIVE on Blab.im
We will talk about Genie’s NEW books -and republished books.
We will also discuss what it is like moving from traditional publishing to indie publishing.
I will find out about Genie’s new romantic suspense releases.
Since we are both bloggers, of course we will talk blogging and how it was for Genie when she started her art blog, DiversionsLA
Genie and I will definitely get into what she is passionate about including screen and novel writing.

I asked Roma what she wanted to tell me about her life’s work and she said she would love to talk about the tools in her book, The “Perfect” Parent, 5 Tools for Using Your Inner Perfection to Connect With Your Kids.”
Here are some of the questions and points that Roma discusses with parents:

Tonight on Ten Minutes in Tinsel Town you will meet my friend, David-Dorian Ross. If you already know of him or have met him on Meerkat or Zoom or Blab, here is a chance for you to get to know him a little better and hear his message. We will discuss why we should care about harmony, peace, and positivity.
My name is David-Dorian Ross (notice the hyphen!)
My guilty pleasure is watching British and Canadian murder mysteries on my iPad!
I’m passionate about human beings! I think they are amazing and wonderful and beautiful. So the work I do is really about reminding them about how amazing they are, so that they can act more in alignment with who they really are. That’s where Tai Chi and Mindfulness comes in. They are techniques – methods, strategies, tactics – whatever you want to call them – for that kind of wake-up.
What is Harmony – and why should anyone care?
Health for the Body…Mind and Spirit.
There’s a ton of ways to reach me:
I am not a “Hollywood hanger-outer,” but let me recommend an awesome spot for breakfast in Portland, OR – Jam on Hawthorne. Guaranteed to have waiters and waitresses with more tattoos than you – and will serve tequila for breakfast (not that I’ve ever done that. OK, well there was that one time.. but that was 1977… and it was Mexico!)
