Sarah Skilton, the author of Bruised is here with Paul Strickland today. The debut author of Bruised, is her new book. She wanted to write about a real life situation. A series of what-ifs like, “where would someone go without a path, changed relationships, or facing a gun?” the story is based on her life’s experiences with martial arts. She herself is a black belt, and the story is about a 16 year old girl who is also a black belt. Sarah is also working on a new novel, which is being kept relatively underwraps for effective, debuting! But, from what can be shared, it is another young adult
Now Jeff Barber is here with Paul, discussing the arts and events that are happening around town. Last night’s event was the light themed, Light Slam!, and next month’s event will be the Green Slam! While the Light Slam! was a success, we were rained on unexpectedly! most of the setup was designed to be outside, and so reorganizing everything to be indoors, in the library was a challenge, but it worked out great, and we had about 600 guests watching visual animation projections, interacting with light painting stations, and are amping up for the new Green Slam! next month.
Alexandra and Katherine Meyering. Now our last two guests are a mother and daughter with artistic genes embedded within their very DNA. Alexandra has already written several novels and a novella and now, recorded her first album at the amazingly young age of 23. While her mother, Katherine, is a well known and busy actress here in the Santa Clarita Valley. Now Alexandra album is called, “Our Best Laid Plan” and even designed the cover of her album. She is an amazingly talented artist, and can play the flute. There are few things this young woman cannot do! And March 16th 4-6m, she will be playing music from her new album at Salt Creek Grille in Valencia.
