Hello, happy Thursday, today I am posting an internet radio address below for anyone who would like to tune in on Friday, December 5, 2014 at 8:15pm to listen to yours truly being interviewed about why I have chosen to write a book about my father, Eddie Green. If you are a fan of OTR (old time radio) or you like trailblazer stories or are just looking for something a little different to enjoy, try this:

We will begin at about 8:15 Pacific and should be finished in 45 minutes to an hour.
Since starting this blog, I have written about 14 posts and almost every one of them has some mention of my father, or of the book I am putting together regarding my father. While focusing on getting this blog up and at the same time researching my father’s life from 1950 back to 1896, I never even considered someone might want to interview me. I had, of course, hoped to build an impressive group of followers to have something to show potential publishers, and then, once I got started, I realized I really did want to be that person who helps others find inspiration. But to actually have someone point me out and bring me forward and have me speak out loud to a live audience, is something that just had not occurred to me. Well, truthfully, I thought it would probably happen to me after I became famous.
What I am learning is that part of this blogging and book-writing process, is me going out and making myself visible, if for no other reason than to get ideas that I can then pass on to others with similar ambitions. Actually, this blog is late in the process, as I made the decision, at least 15 years ago, to write a book chronicling my father’s accomplishments. It is only in the last four years that I have actually done the necessary footwork it takes to gather material, such as birth certificates, copyright information, newspaper clippings and photographs. I understand now that with exposure and active research, I will learn things that may help another blossoming writer, things like the fact that people want money to give you pictures of your father, pictures that they own. Meaning people in museums and people who work at newspapers. I have learned also, that there are people out there who are more than willing, and able, to help another person achieve positive results in their endeavors. I absolutely look forward to this experience and I will blog about it.
In the meantime, and in between time, I am still adding and subtracting elements to my site and I have received some good feedback that I really appreciate. My intent is to post pretty much in the realm of inspiration through examples, motivational stories and poems, and about daily happenings. Comments and shares are welcome.
