Award Winning Author And Speaker Alice Rene Chosen To Appear In '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading'

Ms. Rene was chosen as the result of publishing her award winning memoir, 'Becoming Alice: A Memoir'. Her book vividly details her Jewish family’s escape from persecution, and their life as refugees in Portland, Oregon. She writes about the cultural clash they experienced and her own identity crisis. Compounded by the turmoil of a troubled family, Becoming Alice showcases, with both pathos and humor, her triumph over adversity

Alice Rene, author of 'Becoming Alice: A Memoir', was recently chosen to appear in '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading'. The book is produced by The Authors Show. Ms. Rene was chosen from from among hundreds of interviewees.

"I am honored" stated Ms. Rene, "to have been chosen as one of the fifty authors to be included in the book, 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading. Even though my memoir has succeeded well beyond my expectations, my aim to expose it to as many readers as possible remains my main objective and with the publication of this book, I hope to promote it further."

As a six-year-old, a young girl named Ilse watched Nazi soldiers march down her street in Vienna, Austria. It was the beginning of an odyssey that would take her to Riga, Latvia, and end in Portland, Oregon. Becoming Alice chronicles Rene’s Jewish family's harrowing escape and their struggle as immigrants to fit into the American landscape. The added problems of growing up within a troubled family clouded her childhood and adolescence. Hoping to fit in with her classmates, Ilse changed her name to Alice, but it was not until she moved into a boarding house in Berkeley, surrounded by girls from a patchwork of cultures, that she made peace with her true identity.

“I wrote this book after my grandson chose the Holocaust as his subject for a class assignment and interviewed me as part of his paper,” said Ms. Rene. “That event triggered a thought in my mind that perhaps I should write this story down so that it would not be lost with the passage of time. I took some writing classes and joined a writing group in which we read our work. The first draft was received so enthusiastically by this group that I set about having it edited, and eventually published. I am pleased that it has done so well in the marketplace.”

Becoming Alice has placed and has won numerous industry awards, the most recent being chosen Winner in the Hollywood Book Festival 2009 Contest, Teenage Category. It was a finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards for 2008 in the Autobiography/Memoir Category; it was also a finalist in The Forward Magazine Book of the Year Award 2008 in the Autobiography/Memoir Category. The book took First Place in the Young Adult category in the 2007 Reader Views Awards Program in 2007 and was a semi-finalist in the Autobiography/Memoir category of the same year.

An excerpt from the book entitled the Camel Hair Coat was a finalist in the Southern California Genealogical Society Short Story Contest in 2007. Cashmere, another excerpt, received Honorable Mention in Byline Magazines 2008 Short Story Contest. The book was also chosen as a Publisher’s Choice Book by iUniverse in April 2007 and was chosen as a Star Book by iUniverse in March of 2008.

Ms. Rene is available speaking engagements and interviews. She can be contacted through her website, www.alicerene.com or using the information below. Becoming Alice is available for purchase online at www.Amazon.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, iUniverse.com, and from local Barnes and Noble Bookstores. '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' is available at The Authors Show site at www.TheAuthorsShow.com.


Alice Rene grew up in Portland, Oregon and attended Reed College before moving to California where she received a Master’s degree in Social Welfare from the University of California at Berkeley. She worked as a Medical Caseworker at UC Hospital in San Francisco, teaching the house staff the importance of social and emotional issues in understanding and treating patients.

While raising three children, Alice worked as a travel consultant with a special interest in packaging and escorting groups to exotic foreign destinations. These trips were documented on film and shown at schools, clubs, and private gathering for entertainment and educational purposes.

She began writing seriously after a grandson interviewed her for a high school history assignment. She realized then that her story might be of interest to a wider audience. After studying the art and craft of writing for several years, she wrote her memoir, Becoming Alice. She now lives in southern California with her husband and Golden Retriever.

Author Richard Palombi Releases His Hilarious Third Book, 'Big Son N' Little Son'

Author Richard Palombi has released his third book, 'Big Son N' Little Son'. In this book Palombi offers a wildly entertaining look at growing up in Texas

Author Richard Palombi has released his new book, 'Big Son N' Little Son', The book serves as a follow up to his first two novels, 'Open The Door Richard' and 'The Geronimo Corndogs'.

Big Son ‘n Little Son is a humorous tale of two farm boy cousins growing up in Texas. Half the size, but oh-so-much smarter than his mammoth cousin, the pintsized Big Son narrates the story. The dimwitted Little Son is a giant square peg in a world of round holes. The better part of the county passes him up in school while he languishes in sixth grade. Saddled with an evil little sister and a tool ban for “bendin’ all his Daddy’s hammers out of shape,” it isn’t long before his day of infamy on Grandpa Jack’s farm costs him his tractor privileges. Of course, when one of your only two friends starts wearing an executioner’s mask to keep folks from recognizing him, you pretty much know the cards are stacked against you.

"I wrote this third book," stated Mr. Palombi, "as sort of a modern-day salute to Tom Sawyer, with a dose of The Beverly Hillbillies for added flavor."

In a recent review, Donetta Garman of Allbooks Reviews said, 'Author Richard Palombi has done it again! In his newest release, Big Son ‘n Little Son, Palombi uses his storytelling skills and sense of humor to weave an entertaining tale. . . . I recommend Big Son ‘n Little Son as a great way to escape reality and to put a little humor in your life.'

Mr Palombi was recently interviewed on The Authors Show Radio program. In this interview he discussed his comedic writing style. He also talked about his past life as a joke and monologue writer, his street ministry for at-risk teens in Houston, Texas and his involvement in prison ministries.

Richard Palambi is available for media interview. All of Mr. Palombi's titles are available at the Stonegarden Publishing website at www.stonegarden.net, Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com and at most large Internet book retailers.

Retired with five grandchildren, Richard Palombi wrote jokes and monologues for various stand-up comedians in the seventies and eighties. He later started a street ministry for at-risk teens in Houston, Texas and became involved in prison ministry.

He was also a chaplain at Harris County Jail until moving to Austin, where he worked in various psychiatric hospitals and alcohol and drug centers. He’s written three novels: 'Open the Door, Richard'; 'The Geronimo Cordogs' and 'Big Son ‘n Little Son'.

Author Gene K. Garrison To Be Featured In 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading

Gene K. Garrison was recently chosen to be featured in '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading'. The book is produced by The Authors Show. She was chosen as the result of her release entitled 'From Thunder To Breakfast'

Author Gene K. Garrison was recently chosen to be featured in '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading'. The book is produced by The Authors Show. She was chosen as the result of her release entitled 'From Thunder To Breakfast'

"I am very pleased," stated Ms. Garrison "to have been chosen as one of the "50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading. It's a privilege."

Gene is originally from Delaware. After moving from Phoenix to Cave Creek, Arizona to work on the New Dick Van Dyke Show, she founded Desert Artists, Inc., a cooperative gallery, in the Carefree/Cave Creek area During this time she started a writing career by freelancing an article to Arizona Magazine, a Sunday supplement to The Arizona Republic. After reading several of her stories, the editor of Carefree Enterprise Magazine offered her a job as feature articles writer where she worked for 20 years.

Ms. Garrison then relocated to Sedona AZ. In a scenic town where there are approximately 50 art galleries, artists tend to give art lessons. She found the experimental, abstract, expressionistic art that she relates to and took intensive five-day workshops at th Sedona Arts Center. Her latest educational involvement was a Yavapai College Arts and Technology course titled Digital Storytelling, which involves the melding of photography, writing, narration and music. In Sedona she joined the The International Society of Experimental Artists, the Sedona Camera Club, The Sedona Writers Salon, Q-2 Artists, and the Professional Writers of Prescott.

Two of her books were published by traditional publishers, "From Thunder to Breakfast" and "Widowhood Happens." After they reached out-of-print status, she discovered print-on-demand, and got them back into circulation through Xlibris.com. The next writing project happened because she had photographed javelinas in Cave Creek, so she wrote text to go with the photos — and had a children’s nonfiction book about wildlife on the desert entitled 'Javelina - Have-uh-WHAT?' . Her latest endeavor is a book published by Lulu.com, titled "There’s Something About CAVE CREEK (It’s The People)." She had written more than 550 magazine articles on a variety of subjects, but the people she wrote about in the 1970s and 80s remained clumped together in her mind. She knew she was writing recent history at the time, and in 2006 it all came together. 'From Thunder To Breakfast' is a book about lifestyles, a gentle Western — intimate conversations with cowboys, prospectors, strong women, pioneers, and just people doing what they had to do to get along. It’s a peek into the kinds of lives that we might have been living if we had arrived 75 years earlier.

Ms. Garrison is available for interview and can be reached using the information below or by email at gkgarrison@npgcable.com. More information is available at her website at http://www.authorsden.com/ggarrison. '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' is available at The Authors Show site at http://www.TheAuthorsShow.com. 'From Thunder To Breakfast' is available at most online book retailers.

Author Madeleine Herrmann To Be Featured In 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading

Madeleine Herrmann was recently chosen to be featured in '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading'. The book is produced by The Authors Show. She was chosen as the result of her release entitled 'Partita - A Psychological Mystery'

Madeleine Herrmann was recently chosen to be featured in '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading'. The book is produced by The Authors Show. She was chosen as the result of her release entitled 'Partita - A Psychological Mystery'.

"When I look at my life," stated Ms. Herrmann, "and remember coming to the States in the fifties, with a little suitcase and no money but a scholarship, when I look back at my inability to speak English at the times, I feel very proud to have been chosen today to rank among the 50 great writers featured in this book! Life is amazing!"

Partita is a psychological mystery as complex as the extraordinary violin solo music by Bach. Ernst Feidler, a brilliant linguist psychologist and violinist, commits a shocking and unexplainable suicide at the height of his career. His devastated wife, Manou, is left to raise their four children and piece together the hidden motives behind the death of her beloved Ernst. The iconoclastic European couple rode the intense post World War II world into the cultural upheavals of the 1960s with tireless energy. Through Manou's progressively deeper scrutiny of their life, she unveils his descent into psychosis and her own participation in his decline. Finally, she gives birth to a new self without him.

Herrmann, 80, has lived in Taos since her retirement in 1991. She says she writes when she’s inspired and is working to complete a second novel about romance, idealism and relationships.

Born in Lyon, France, Herrmann lived during World War II in German-occupied Nantes, where repeated U.S. bombing occurred. After the war, she became an athlete who won French national track-and-field titles and competed in the University World Games in Budapest in 1949.

She earned admission to a school in Paris and studied physical education, which she notes was a rare course of study for women then. Out of 800 applicants only 40 students were enrolled in the Ecole Normale Superieure, where Madeleine entered number 1. After two years she won a Fulbright scholarship to study physical education in Iowa.

“The war darkly colored my parents’ attitude about life — made them rather gloomy even after it was all over — so I came to America to try to reinvent myself,” she says.

In Iowa she met Fred Herrmann, her future husband, who had been recruited into the Hitler Youth in Germany as had all young men of his age in those times, but he was never called to serve, she says. Defying historic animosity between the French and Germans, they bonded and moved to California to pursue the American Dream.

Herrmann had her four children by the time she was 27 and earned a master’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley in 1962. She taught women’s physical fitness, but primarily taught French at public schools in California, she says. She went back to college in 1983 for a master’s program in transpersonal psychology, which studies higher states of consciousness and the intersection of psychology and spirituality, according to the Journal of Transpersonal Psychology. A few years later, in 1986, her book of French poetry was published, which she says she intends someday to translate into English.

More information is available at her website at http://www.MadeleineHerrmann.com. '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' is available at The Authors Show site at http://www.TheAuthorsShow.com. Ms. Herrmann can be contacted using the information below. 'Partita' is available at the authors website, from Plainview Press at http://www.plainviewpress.net and from most online book retailers.
