Good Life Detroit
Good Life Detroit is a lifestyle blog which features topics about beauty, culture, entertainment, family life, fashion, motherhood, and recipes. As an African American writer, I am passionate about promoting diversity for all cultures, especially within the African American community. The demographics of the blog are as follows: the majority of readers are women who have families. Their ages range from 25 to 45 and they live in the U.S. I would love to connect with authors and artists who are available for an email or phone interview/quote. If you are in the Detroit area, then we can also meet for an in-person interview. Looking forward to meeting you! Thank you!

Alpha Media - Lincoln
Musicians are always good, and so are people who can articulate agricultural perspectives to an urban audience. I am into organics and the environment, so authors in those areas are always welcome. I stay away from politics (enough of that going on), otherwise I'm open for nearly anything. I record shows from 9am CENTRAL to Noon CENTRAL Monday through Thursday.

I've been reviewing books since 1988 in print and on the radio, and interviewing authors for a weekly 30 minute show since 1991. I like to read the book before the interview. Interviews are recorded in late afternoon (4 PM and later CT) as I teach journalism in the mornings at Troy University. My interests are Christianity, history, science/health.
