About This Fantastic Biography:
.
*** FIRST PLACE WINNER of the Florida Writers Association 2014 Royal Palm Literary Award for Biography ***

Begotten With Love is a sometime turbulent, sometime rollicking story spanning 150 years of American history and five generations of an immigrant’s family. The stories on these pages are tales of courage, triumph, folly and forgiveness. You’ll laugh and cry as the author brings each generation to life and lets you live the experiences as the characters and plots unfold. As one reader put it, “It reads like fiction . . . but it’s not!”

Based on the author’s 30 years of research, the book brings to life each generation and lets the readers live the experiences as the characters and plots unfold.

“My family is a writer’s dream,” Glim said, “filled with remarkable characters but then every family has its share of dreamers and doers, cowards and cads, heroes and heroines. I hope after reading Begotten With Love you will love my family as much as I do . . . warts and all. More than that, I hope you will love your family even more!”
.

About The Author:
.
 Award Winning Author, Jo Ann V. Glim
.
Jo Ann V. Glim‘s professional career (as a disc jockey and copy-writer) began in the late 1960s in Chicago on the all jazz¬†radio station WSDM-FM when she answered a help wanted ad in the Chicago Tribune which ¬†boldly ¬†stated: No experience necessary.¬†The 24-year-old ¬†(whose ¬†personal ¬†life ¬†was ¬†in shambles — a ¬†six-year marriage on the¬†rocks and no marketable job skills) laughingly thought,¬†“For once, I qualify”!
.

.
That ¬†was ¬†the “glamorous”¬†side of her career.¬†One she is¬†grateful to have enjoyed but she was¬†also¬†fascinated by the ¬†inner ¬† workings of business management and¬†now, remarried¬†and¬†living in the suburbs, wanted to experience corporate¬†life. Glim began as a¬†file clerk with Kelly Services and throughout the years took advantage of every business class Kelly and local¬†junior colleges offered.¬†¬†Sixteen years later, Glim retired as an on-site manager at “Baxter¬†Healthcare’s Human Resources (IV Systems) division” . . . still employed through Kelly Services.
.
The one constant in Glim’s life has been writing. As a forty-year veteran of freelance writing. with¬†credits to her name for “Hallmark Cards” and one-liners for nationally known comedians . .¬† . And for the rest of Jo Ann’s fabulous life story, you just have to visit her Author Website at:¬†www.BegottenTheBook.com¬† … You can even read a sample of her book while your there too!
.
I have known Jo Ann, my “Florida Girl”¬†for a long while now, and I believe we met through Twitter & Facebook. But we do see each other a lot on Social Media. She has always engaged and interacted with me on both sites, and when she sent the direct message of her good news of winning this fabulous award, I told her I just had to “Spotlight” it¬†for her!
Then, …. I got sick with an upper ling infection. So I’m sorry girl this took way to long to share your *Special Honor & Award*!! “But you know Jo Ann¬†I always got your back dear”!! Now I do have her book added to my Goodreads “Want To Read” book list, and when I’m done, I’ll be doing a nice Blog Post Review her for you when I’m done reading!
.
See, that’s what it’s all about, authors helping and networking together to help all of us be Successful as authors & writers!
So I Thank Jo Ann for letting me share her book and award with all my readers and blog friends. And if you’re a reader on Goodreads? Please connect with my good friend Jo Ann V. Glim on Goodreads and grab a copy of her award-winning biography at:

I Welcome Guest Author, “Agathe von Kampen” To My Writers Blog Today!

Hello Readers, Friends, And New Visitors,

 

Today I have the honor and privilege of introducing you to a good friend of mine, who happens to be a fellow author and the best ‘Story Teller’ I know, Author Agathe von Kampen- (Turrell).¬†S he is a delightful woman who has been through so much than any one woman should have to endure in one lifetime! ¬†She inspires me as a writer and author truly.

We first met through our publisher, as¬†we both are from¬†‘The Kodel Empire Publishing family’¬† http://kodelempire.com/ in¬†So. Oregon where she resides. I was given a copy of her current book, “The Chocolate Bar” and when I began to read it, and¬†I seriously could not put it down.
.
I was so taken aback about what Agathe had gone through in her life, that I quickly learned she was one wise and a¬†strong woman. I’m so inspired by her true story her life she was brave enough to share with the world, and I know she will also inspire all who read her book.

Here is a little more about Agathe and her wonderful book “The Chocolate Bar”…

The Chocolate Bar
.
Book Information:

The Chocolate Bar ~ by Agathe Von Kampen

“With no point of reference for a life of “normalcy,” seeking acceptance and security in a country not accommodating to immigrants, the author relied only on survival instincts, leading to her years of co-dependency, self-doubt, and utter despondency. She finds herself seeking refuge in controlling religious factions and abusive relationships.
.
This life struggle reminds her constantly of her experiences in WWII where she spent her first six years on the front lines in Russia and as a refugee in Hitler’s Germany. Her lullabies were the sounds of gunfire and exploding bombs. Her arrival at Ellis Island was promised to be the beginning of freedom, ¬†instead, it was only the continuation of abuse and control-intimate and personal relationships of psychological warfare.
.
This is a compelling account of life as it was back “then” and how this child of war endured as she did, blossoming into a young woman, in a new land called America. A life’s journey, as told by the author with such honesty, innocence, joy, humor, lessons and revealing horrors and sins, ¬†is it any wonder how this broken soul did in fact, survive
.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

“After the first ten years of my life as a refugee on the front lines, I had survived unspeakable horrors and was looking forward to immigrating to America when I was a teenager. Having heard stories about life in the United States from the American G.I’.s occupying Germany, giving me hope that I could achieve the American dream too.

But, with good intentions my mother married me off to the first American man who showed an interest in me. With unexpected, horrible results, at sixteen I found myself married to a diagnosed sociopath. After living in emotional hell for thirteen years I found myself having to support two small children without the benefit of an education or any job skills.

This led to a lot of poor choices since I had never learned to choose for myself – only to follow orders.
Through a lifetime of errors I corrected one mistake at a time until now, at age seventy-eight I am finely living the dream I’d always hoped for!

I am married to a very kind and loving man who treats me with the respect I deserve – as any human being has a right to. I live life in beautiful So. Oregon, in a lovely home, nice community, and have the pleasure of my children being respectable, contributing citizens of society.
It has been a long journey but worth it.
.
I hope you will read my book, take the journey of my words with me, and see how much one ‘Human Being’ can endure…”
