“A Touch of Grace: Interview with author, Michael Charles Givens”

Nothing breathes life into the spirit, humbling it and dismantling it like life experiences.  Michael Charles Givens, a Northern California writer, will join me on “A Touch of GraceTuesday, December 7th, 2010 at 6pm PST and 9pm EST to tell his riveting story and how it manifested into the remarkable autobiography, “The Dopeless Hope Fiend“.

This exceptional piece of non-fiction has been rated 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon by readers, and the most earth shattering quote that I’ve read so far has to be the one that said “As a police officer he was sworn to uphold the law.  As a drug addict he was compelled to violate it.” I first met Michael on the Steamy Creative Trails writers page on Facebook, and have been memorized by his sincere, honest, writing style.

His courage is inspiring.

His dedication to helping others is selfless and admirable.

His inner strength is unbelievable.

This is one interview that you won’t want to miss.

The author, Michael Charles Givens

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
