A Whole New World: Travel and Change

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-qmqp9-953181

This episode is all about travel and culture…moving forward rather than getting stuck in the past.  Embracing change.  We talk about the benifits of travel with a young man who’s done more than his share of budget travelling, and he provides many useful tips for travelling on a budget.  Sponsored by Blue Jinni Media, www.bluejinnimedia.com   For more works by Dedra L. Stevenson, please visit, www.dedralstevenson.com

A New Edition Coming Soon and a Play!

I’ve worked very hard on a new audio play based on this novel, and plan to finish writing it very soon. Personally, and I don’t mind saying this myself, I believe that this story is going to be absolutely amazing as an audio performance!

Additionally, I am getting ready to release a second edition of Desert Magnolia very soon, so that it can take its’ proper place in the literary world.

Oh, and just one more thing. I have a short film script for this story, and a brilliant location in Ajman for filming. Are you interested in helping me produce this film? Let me hear from you.

Missing the Southern Life When Trapped in a Big City

I live in a big city in the Middle East. This city has it’s good points, but I find myself missing the beauty and peaceful feeling of a small town.

When I was a kid, I never realized how lucky I was to grow up without noise, crowds, pollution and rudeness.

How I miss the open spaces, the sound of the crickets chirping at night, seeing all the stars in the clear night sky, the mountain fresh air…

I miss people who knew that it’s rude to stare. I miss the iced tea, the fresh roasted peanuts, and people who didn’t mind doing their own gardening!

And above all, I miss the people who go out of their way to help someone when they need it. Oh sure, they may gossip about you later, but until your crisis passes, they will hav your back!

Small town life…miss you more all the time…

This is just a little-unscripted episode to say Howdy, and to get back in touch! Peace and Light to you all.

CATCHING UP!

2016-02-01-10-52-58-370Wow, what an exciting month this has been!  I’ve been working on my own personal podcast, the podcast I  Co-Produce with my partner at Blue Jinni Media, my new cookbook, a children’s book, and a new film!  I wonder if a woman with a family to manage can put on any more duties and responsibilities?  Gosh, I certainly hope not!

The new podcast is called, Desert Magnolia, just like the novel, and I really hope that you’ll enjoy it.  I’m truly just doing that one for fun, and I’m talking about topics that I want to talk about, with no real ryme or reason, pretty much discussion / talk show style.

If there’s a topic that you’d like to hear about, please let me know!  Give me a shout out at any time, and if it’s possible, I’ll talk about it.  Be nice now, and take it seriously.  I truly do want to offer topics that matter.
