“To help yourself…” (reflections of a writer) GD

Every now and then something rattles my creative spirit and has me questioning my abilities, regardless of all the accomplishments I’ve made. Some call it doubt. Others recite the passage “And This Too Shall Pass”, and I guess I tend to levitate somewhere in the middle during these transitional periods. The 2012 summer season of my blog talk radio show, “A Touch of Grace”, has been inspiring and productive. I’ve had the opportunity to interview some pretty talented and amazing people during the 30 minute segments, and in my heart I know that it is a blessing that they even allowed me the honor of the interviews. I am grateful for all of my blessings, and I will chant that over and over. They aren’t meant to be taken for granted — ever.

I suppose the restlessness comes from a spiritual place where my ambition lies. It’s in a corner designated for dreams, hopes, and prayers.

You inquire silently and ask yourself; when, knowing very well that “it will happen in time if destiny choose it to be so”.


Book number 6, “Daddy,” looms there, as do my future literary endeavors — the books still yet to be completed, “Anomaly”, “Red”, “With Arms Around Me,” and countless others in progress.

There are only so many hours in a day, and I stepped into this literary life to fulfill what I had in me, a passion for written expression.

It saved me.

So, I decided to write something today…

To share; knowing that, in sharing, you help yourself as well.

And these are the…

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…
