About the Author, Tj Haynes:

Broken Gems” is the recently re-released novel by a remarkable young man by the name of “Tj” Tasonn Haynes, and his incredible journey as a writer is both inspiring and encouraging to readers and fellow authors alike. 

His life’s light first spewed it’s hue in his birth place of New Haven, Connecticut, a place where he still resides and calls home.  He is the proud and humbled father of an amazing little girl that he is raising.  Of all his accomplishments, she is, by far, his number one joy.  He feels that if he can consistently provide her with positivity and lead by example, then he truly has accomplished something extremely significant in this life.

His genuine love for writing stems from his desires to be a vessel that can take people to places where they can learn lessons from the stories he creates. The inspiration behind this particular novel came from a maternal place, his mother’s strength, a mother,that passed away two years ago. When he reflects on her courageas a human being, he describes her as being “wonderfully dynamic, and the epitome of a person who was met with tremendous adversity in her life, adversity that she always found a way to rise above and beyond…”

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…
