“A Touch of Grace” Interview with Author & Humanitarian, Elaine Newkirk

A humanitarian is a selfless individual with warming arms that hold those in need of hope tightly.  Their hearts are touched by God’s very Grace, and in the center of their smile all that is divine can be seen.  This description of an Angel best defines an incredible writer who goes by the name of Elaine Newkirk.  She authored the heartwarming book, “The House With Dirt Walls“, and within her inspiring list of accomplishments she is also parent extraordinaire.  With one biological child, she also opened her home up to four pre-adoptive children (with disabilities).  Over the past ten years she has fostered sixty others in a quest to make lives better for youth in need.

Without a doubt, she is extraordinary.  In addition to her novel, she has also written 4 screen plays ( Two feature-length and two television sitcoms).    Her list of accomplishments also include Ordained Minister through The World Council of Independent Christian Churches, and a guest appearance on The Dr. Phil Show.

On Saturday, December 4th 2010 at 6:00pm PST and 9:00pm EST, “A Touch of Grace” has the honor of having her as a featured guest on the show, and as the producer and host of the show I will say with the utmost confidence; this is one hour that you definitely don’t want to miss.

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…
