Writers’ Podcast Promises an Exciting Start to Summer with Its Author Offerings
Nashville, TN, May 30, 2009—The Writers in the Sky podcasts for the month of June will present a series of interviews that will be both educational and inspirational for the listeners. The month will begin with a woman whose background and proven excellence in editing and author assistant services will be of interest to anyone involved in the business of writing. The next week features another editor who has received accolades for her services, and who is also a ghostwriter as well as the author of her own mystery novels. Anyone looking for tips that will lead to greater success in any profession will want to tune into our next podcast, which features an interview with a dynamic personal and business coach. Writers in the Sky will end the month with a Jewish man who survived Nazi-occupied France and has spent his adult life teaching others his family and cultural history.
The weekly podcast will present its first guest for the new month on June 5, when Writers in the Sky owner Yvonne Perry welcomes Karen Reddick. Karen is the author of the book Grammar Done Right!, which offers quick and easy access to the most common grammar, usage, and style rules laid-out in alphabetical format and making it a perfect companion to keep by a writer’s keyboard.

The last podcast interview of the month will take place on June 26. Barbara Milbourn will share her discussion with Leo Abrami, author of the new book Evading the Nazis. Mr. Abrami was taken by his mother to hide with farmers in Normandy, France during World War II to avoid the inevitable persecution by the Nazis. Although Jewish, he pretended to be Catholic and lived safely with his adoptive family until France finally was liberated by the Allies. Evading the Nazis tells Mr. Abrami’s story of survival during the war and his determination to investigate his family and cultural history once he was free. Tune into this discussion to learn more about one boy’s amazing experience during war, and the man’s later determination to speak for others who could not.
