Four Years of Writestream Radio

Four Years of Writestream Radio

Thanks to LinkedIn, I received a reminder that Writestream Radio is now  four years old. Between out-of-state visitors and Writestream Publishing projects, I’d forgotten all about it. It’s hard to believe, but at the time I was freelancing as a ghostwriter, copywriter, content writer and blogger. I thought an internet radio network would help my clients (and other authors) become more comfortable with discussing their books.

After publishing the first edition of Water Signs in 2008, I soon discovered that people were as interested in me as they were in my novel — which surprised me a little. That’s when I realized how critical it was for indie authors to put themselves out there in cyberspace and real life. Having spent the previous four years co-hosting a political show, I saw firsthand the power of internet radio to connect authors with their audience. And since many authors I knew had an aversion to public speaking, it also provided a non-threatening forum to discuss their work since it’s off-camera. (Ah, the days before Facebook Live 😉 ).

With that in mind, I contacted Lisa Tarves and John Gresham to ask if they wanted their own shows on the network. After they happily accepted, we began airing the Sunday of the first week of March 2013 with Just Believe with Lisa Tarves.

Sadly, our friend John Gresham passed away in July of 2016, but his memory and voice live on in the form of multiple excellent Military Monday broadcasts, which can be accessed on our Blog Talk Radio Show Page.

Today, our network broadcasts a variety of unique, uplifting, and informative programming:

Just Believe with Ilene Gottlieb ~ The Heart Healer

The Mentor In Me on Writestream Radio

Create Your Life with Tasha Chen

Partners in Crime with Sue Coletta and Kimberly McGath

The Formula with Jefferson Keith Langley

Love Liberty & Lip Gloss with Donna Lyons

Speculative Fiction Cantina with S. Evan Townsend

Get Fit Feel Fabulous with Britt


After a several month hiatus, I’ll be back to weekly hosting on Wednesdays at 11 AM Eastern, beginning on April 5 with The Writestream with Daria Anne. Write. Publish. Succeed. And soon, Kris Kees will be hosting a weekly money/finance program, Kees to Invest. I’ll post more details as we get closer to his debut.

Thank you to all of our exceptional hosts and listeners. We appreciate you and look forward to many more years of top-notch broadcasting!



Writestream Tuesday with ‘Mobster-Turned-Minister’ Robert Borelli

Please join me on Tuesday, January 5 at 1 p.m. Eastern when I welcome author Robert Borelli to Writestream:

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Robert saw three kinds of people: those like his parents, who worked hard but didn’t seem to get anywhere; those who were addicted to drugs and alcohol, living on the streets; and those who had it all, but lived a life of crime. At a young age, Robert was attracted to the latter and became an errand runner for a local mobster.

As he began his ascent through the ranks of the Gambino crime family, he fell into a life of crime and drug addiction. Eventually Robert’s crimes landed him in prison, looking at a very long time separated from his family – particularly his daughter.

After being encouraged by a friend to read a Bible, the Lord began to do a work in Robert’s heart that would lead his life in a new direction. In the midst of this spiritual transformation, Robert began to cooperate with Federal authorities and agreed to testify to the things he had seen and done while in the Mafia.

Today, Robert shares his story with audiences throughout the U.S. By putting God’s love into action and sharing his own experiences, Robert is proof of how God can give anyone a new life, no matter what they’ve done.
