Tonight I had two guests on my show "A Book and a Chat". Lisa and Mathew Ball are both authors in their own right, and part of a very talented family.
Mathew as well as writing poetry and some wonderful children's books "Minnie & Melvira" and "The Worm & The Caterpillar" is a fantastic boogie-woogie and blues pianist (he is known as "The Boogie Woogie Kid) and has produced two books. The Art of Boogie-Woogie and Blues Preludes 'Music Scores'.
Lisa as well as being an editor and a dab hand with the tambourine, has also written a book called "Booze House". Raised in a home of instability, addiction, and violence, this is the story of a young girl fighting to navigate a path to normalcy amidst the turmoil of a family held hostage to alcoholism, betrayal, autism, and pain.
On top of that, they have also created William Joseph K Publications is an independent publishing house established in memory of "Billy-Joe" Kiel, whose life ended abruptly from conditions related to his Autism. Not only that they have brought out an anthology of stories and poems from various authors, called "Episodes of the Norm". Fifty percent of the proceeds from this book are donated to the Autism Society of America.
But it does not end there, with a talented father, and two brothers joining in with the production of the books, there is so much to listen to and enjoy in this jam packed thirty minute show...
