60 Heroes. 60 Stories. 60 reminders that anything is possible. Best-selling author and Decoded host Brad Meltzer joins Vicki today to discuss a book 6 years in the making. Later, we chat with an expert who breaks down sibling rivalry and how to keep it at bay! Tune in to Conversations Live every Monday at noon Pacific on KKNW 1150AM!
Brad Meltzer returns to Conversations Live with a book that was six years in the making. Heroes For My Daughter was written during an emotionally turbulent time in Meltzer’s life as he experienced tremendous losses over the course of choosing the women (and a few men) who would serve as ideal role models for his daughter. From Rosa Parks to Christopher Reeve… from Marie Curie to Lucille Ball… every hero in this book is a fighter. The culmination of six years of searching for heroes worthy of his daughter has resulted in a book that will at once serve as an inspiration while at the same time bringing a tear to your eye. Meltzer is a world reknowned suspense writer who has spent many weeks on the New York Times Bestselling list. He has lived every boy’s dream of being a comic writer, working on Superman, Batman, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and many other fantasy and super hero books. Currently, he hosts Brad Meltzer’s Decoded on the History Channel while continuing his exhausting schedule of writing and making appearances!
Written with humor, compassion, and understanding by two parents of 3, Siblings Without Rivalry is the sanity-saving help that parents everywhere have been searching for! Using action-oriented, easy to understand anecdotes, it challenges the notion that constant, unpleasant conflict among siblings is natural and unavoidable. Co-author Adele Faber joins Vicki today to discuss what contributes to sibling rivalry, why it carries into adulthood, and what parents can do to prevent it. She will also discuss why siblings often revert back to childhood at family gatherings, and what can be done about that as adults. Faber received her Masters in Education from New York University and taught in the New York City high school system for eight years. She and co-writer Elaine Mazlish have been honored with their inclusion in Who’s Who In America.
Also joining Vicki today is Marley Gibson to discuss her 12th novel which is based in part on her real-life experience overcoming cancer as a teenage cheerleader. Radiate is a highly emotional story with an overwhelming message – with a positive attitude, you can overcome any obstacle in your life!
