Writers Showcase Featuring Jennifer Lieberman
makeyourownbreak.wordpress.com/ www.jenniferliebermanactor.com/ Make Your Own Break was founded by Award-Winning Writer/Performer and Producer Jennifer Lieberman to help writers and performers realize their creative goals by providing the tools to learn how to produce independent productions with little to no resources. After years of pounding the pavement and knocking on doors with no success of breaking into the entertainment industry, Jennifer decided to take matters into her own hands and created the solo-show Year of the Slut. This show proved to be her break and the play Year of the Slut went on to win the Audience Choice Award in New York City and is now the novel Year of the What? Since deciding to make her own break Lieberman has appeared in over 30 international stage productions and has produced over 40 independent film and theatre productions. She has penned a number of stage and screen plays and her short films have screened at the Festival de Cannes Court Métrage among other international festivals. She is currently gearing up to direct her first feature film. During the 2020 Covid Pandemic Jennifer had the opportunity to help Executives and Business professionals hone their on-camera skills as the business world was forced into virtual communication. During this time she came up with a simple seven step program, implementing her filmmaking and performance skills, to help anyone and everyone master their virtual meeting every time. Based on her coaching experience she has published the book “Make Your Own Break: How To Master Your Virtual Meeting In Seven Simple Steps” making her method accessible to everyone looking to improve their virtual presence and presentation skills.

Author Kristine Raymond, interviewed by author Jennifer Anne Gordon
www.kristineraymond.com It wasn't until later in life that Kristine Raymond figured out what she wanted to be when she grew up, an epiphany that occurred in 2013 when she sat down and began writing her first novel. Sixteen books in multiple genres later, she's added the title of podcasting host to her resume, thus assuring that she will never be idle. When a spare moment does present itself, she fills it by navigating the publishing and promotional side of the business. When not doing that, she spends time with her husband and furbabies (not necessarily in that order) at their home in south-central Kentucky, reads, or binge-watches Netflix. To find out more about Kristine, please visit her website at www.kristineraymond.com and follow her on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and BookBub.

Mark Russell interviewed by Jennifer Anne Gordon
Mark Russell is the author of God Is Disappointed in You and Apocrypha Now. He also writes the comic book series Prez and The Flintstones for DC Comics. He lives and works in Portland, Oregon. God Is Disappointed in You is for people who would like to read the Bible... if it would just cut to the chase. Stripped of its arcane language and its interminable passages of poetry, genealogy, and law, every book of the Bible is condensed down to its core message, in no more than a few pages each. Written by Mark Russell with cartoons by New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler, God Is Disappointed in You is a frequently hilarious, often shocking, but always accurate retelling of the Bible, including the parts selectively left out by Sunday School teachers and church sermons. Irreverent yet faithful, this book is a must-read for anyone who wants to see past the fog of religious agendas and cultural debates to discover what the Bible really says www.amazon.com/.../B01D0D3OLK%3Fref=dbs_a_mng_rwt... www.goodreads.com/author/show/7163477.Mark_Russell Hosts: Christie Stratos christiestratos.com Jennifer Anne Gordon www.JenniferAnneGordon.com Heather Gooden www.hmgoodenauthor.com
