A Touch of Grace: Interviews Authors; Charles Burgess & Jerrmond Walker” at 8:00PM (PST), Tuesday, August 8/16/2011. 

Introducing, Charles Burgess:

Charles Burgess, born August 15, 1970 in Providence, Rhode Island, moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin as a child and attended high school at Pulaski, North Division, and Washington. Upon finishing high school, Charles decided to take a Bank Specialist job at State Farm Insurance Company. While working there, Charles completed his first book titled, “Homies”.

Since then, Charles has taken the literarycraftsmanship more seriously and began writing novels fulltime. “Don’t Say You Do If You Don’t”,  “Bee-Wildered”, “The Ghetto Sopranos: Rise of the Family”, “Midnight Love” are the recent titles completed by Charles Burgess.

Now 40 years of age, Charles is currently single and has chosen to dedicate his time to completing a seven book series titled “The Ghetto Sopranos”, while also working on more titles for in-between releases. Cricket & Honey, Instant Message Me, Trigger Words, Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say, are just a few that Charles has in the pipeline.

Charles enjoys helping others manifest their craft in the writing world. He started Underground Publications, which took on a few first time authors and helped them release their books. In 2011, Charles decided to start an erotic anthology, Chocolate Rose, where he helps authors get their names out into the community while helping them make money on the sales of their books. This year, Charles had also decided, with the backing of Az Publishing Services, LLC, authors would have even more opportunities. The new Charlie’s Urban Angelz series, which has its first book debuting in September, is set with smaller stories with the urban kick to them.

Charles is looking to deliver two hundred books or more in his continued career, and hopes to captivate his readers with tantalizing stories.

Introducing, Jermond Walker:

Jerrmond “JDub” Walker was introduced to poetry as a means of personal therapy. A friend brought him to a local poetry set and his love for the art flourished almost immediately.  Known to Milwaukee’s poetry scene as “JDub”, listeners of his work understood that when he hit the stage -the truth would flow. Bold, strong and sometimes even crass to the sensitive ear, JDub’s stories of tainted love, social and community dissatisfaction, and an occasional sexual exploitation won him the favor and respect of a thriving poetry community…

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…
