Type.Tune.Tint.

Tom Kranz uncovers the ways in which authors, artists and musicians find their creativity, especially those who find it later in life or hidden under layers of denial. Artists, writers and musicians aren't necessarily born that way. Or, maybe they are and just don't know it.

Escape from Addiction, Embracing the Good Life
Australia’s pre-eminent recovery guru brings his positive energy to the world. It took sheer exhaustion from a 17-year heroin addiction to simply stop the madness. And in 2009, he cleared his head and began living a life devoted to better health and commitment to helping other addicts."I'm incredibly blessed to be where I am today,” he says.At age 48, Danny Shannon is a college graduate, an expert on helping addicts get and stay sober and the developer of an online program and mobile app designed to allow addicts to create video journals to help chart their progress. And thus was born Encapsulator, an easy way to record a video journal, born of his early use of video during sessions with other recovering addicts. This is Danny’s remarkable story of recovery and rebirth.https://encapsulator.iohttp://dannyshannon.com.au/https://www.facebook.com/sobersquaddannyshannonTK Books LLC Contemporary fiction and science fiction; ebooks, softcover, hardcover and audiobooks.Support the Show.

The passing of a friend
I lost a friend of mine recently. I was fortunate to reconnect with Rob Feldman after going our separate ways for several decades. I was even more fortunate to be able to speak with him at length during this podcast episode in January of 2023. I learned so much about this individual whom I only knew dribs and drabs about even while working with him for a couple of years in the mid 1980s. He lived a remarkable life and I thought you might share my remembrance of him here for a couple of minutes. You may also be moved to listen to the entire episode linked above. Support the Show.

From Junkie to Judge
Of all the author stories I’ve encountered in five years, this is probably the most amazing of all. Mary Beth O’Connor is a retired federal administrative law judge who survived a childhood rife with physical, sexual and emotional abuse followed by 20 years of hard core alcohol and drug addiction. Faced with never-ending feelings of abandonment, danger and marginalization, she persevered through high school and college, made it into law school, dropped out, then rejoined finally tackling her addiction in her 30’s to become a judge. She writes about it in stark terms in her memoir From Junkie to Judge: One Woman’s Triumph Over Trauma and Addiction.  Now 30 years sober and living a stable life in the San Francisco Bay area, Mary Beth tells her story with candor and self-deprecation that will hook you and reel you in. She is also an advocate or hope and recovery and offers several resources, listed below, to help those trying to overcome addiction and other trauma.Website: https://junkietojudge.comLifeRing: https://lifering.orgSheRecovers Foundation: https://sherecovers.orgTK Books LLC Contemporary fiction and science fiction; ebooks, softcover, hardcover and audiobooks.TK Books LLCContemporary fiction and science fiction; ebooks, softcover, hardcover and audiobooks.Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

Home Studio Musician: Stock Music is Everywhere
The combination of musical talent and digital technology has created a new breed of artists who can create amazing music at home using a computer and a keyboard. It’s one thing to create tunes as a hobby. It’s quite another to identify a market for that music and sell it. In this episode, we meet Evan Oxhorn who has done just that. He’s recorded hundreds of songs and stock music tracks that have earned him thousands of dollars from video producers, YouTube posters and commercial television programs such as 90 Day Fiancé and The Real Housewives of Potomac. Moreover, Evan is teaching nascent home-studio musicians how to do it all, from purchasing the right gear to creating a library of music, licensing and selling it.Evan’s website: https://www.stockmusicmusician.comTK Books LLC Contemporary fiction and science fiction; ebooks, softcover, hardcover and audiobooks.TK Books LLCContemporary fiction and science fiction; ebooks, softcover, hardcover and audiobooks.Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

Sister In A Brotherhood: Pioneering female firefighter’s story
As recently as the 1980s, women firefighters were rare, especially in light of the tough road a group of New York women had in achieving their dream of becoming members of the FDNY. But they did it and around the same time a young woman in Florida named Cindie Schooler-Ball embarked on a career in the fire service there. A product of poverty in Ohio, then jumping from job to job as a teen and young woman in Florida, Cindie was encouraged to become a firefighter by some of the men in her local firehouse. The rest is history as she completed a successful career as a firefighter, EMT and paramedic in several Florida communities, retiring in 2015 at the rank of Captain. She documents her story in Sister In A Brotherhood, her book that is the subject of our conversation on Type. Tune.

Were you a Toys R US Kid?
Sal Panicci wasn’t looking to work retail in his youth in New Jersey, but the blind ad in the Newark Star Ledger was inviting. Seeking to get out of jobs that were unstable, he went for the interview and discovered the job was for a management trainee at Toys R Us, the nationwide chain of toy stores that dominated the market for a generation. His short book In the Toy Box is a recollection of his almost 30 years working for the pre-eminent toy chain in America. Remember the Cabbage Patch Kid craze?

Holiday Edition 2023: All I Want For Christmas is you GONE!
The title is a tad snarky but it’s all in good fun as we hear from writer/singer/producer/actor Sudi “Rick” Karatas about his newest song and music video. The title is a play on the famous Mariah Carey song, but the words and concept bear no resemblance. It’s a lighthearted tune about holiday betrayal. It’s played for laughs with slapstick and humor. And in an unusual twist, there are two versions of the music video, one in which the male protagonist is betrayed by his girlfriend, the other in which he is betrayed by his boyfriend, or as Sudi calls it an LGBTQ version.I’m always about getting as many of you to listen to these podcast episodes. But this time, I urge you to watch the video which includes both versions of the music video plus a holiday song about recovery from addiction.

Inspired by a child’s friendship
Elementary school teacher Sabine Posy did her share of virtual teaching during COVID while her two young children learned virtually in the next room. Her daughter Nora was a social butterfly who got antsy sitting in front of a monitor. Her son Nate, younger and already a shy boy, worried her. When the lockdowns were lifted and it was time to go back to school, would Nate’s socialization be harder?She was pleasantly surprised when Nate made a friend in preschool, another boy named Harry. “Their friendship was very inspiring. He made friends with Harry. They helped each other.”That inspiration moved Sabine to write and illustrate her first children’s book, Nate and Harry Are Great Friends, a story emphasizing the simple concept of friendship.“The pureness on their friendship, the pureness of their love, it’s like no matter where they were in the building, after dismissal when they’re going home or during drop off, you know, they would greet each other with the biggest heartwarming hug.”Sabine, an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher, still sees some kids catching up from social and academic deficits caused by the isolation of virtual learning.

A wife and mother of two young children, her mind raced to cope with the possibility of an early death and how she could possibly tell her kids.

A Flicker In The Water: Man vs. Fish
A lifetime of fishing presented a challenge to Bob Gonzalez in writing his book  A Flicker In The Water. Was it possible to capture the visceral sensations of being on a boat miles from shore in the Gulf of Mexico, breathing the salt air, feeling the ocean spray and getting the adrenaline rush that ensues when a big fish bites and takes you for an hours-long battle? I submit that he met the challenge.  His book of fish tales is based on his experiences deep sea fishing. Bob’s passion for the sport shines through in his vivid descriptions of high-seas exploits accompanied by his 82-year old father and trusted companions aboard a boat called Twister.

Unconventional With Unwoman
The Handmaid's Tale, the dystopian vision of women as fertile slaves to a ruling elite, describes the Unwoman as the lowest class of woman who is shunned because she protests, thinks for herself, expresses independence and follows her own path. It's no wonder, then, that musician Erica Mulkey chose Unwoman as her stage name, a performance persona dedicated to being her own advocate. This independent songwriter, singer, musician and performer, who's elevated DIY music to a new level, is about to release her ninth original album. With a degree in music and her trusty electric cello, Unwoman has traveled around the country bringing live performances that are nuanced shades of electronic music with lyrical and sometimes dark messages. Along the way, she's made no compromises. Listen to one of her studio recordings and you have to remind yourself it's all one person doing the multiple vocals, instruments and electronic sounds. Hear more in this episode which features music from her latest album, Desire Paths, due to be released on September 22, 2023. TK Books LLC Contemporary fiction and science fiction; ebooks, softcover, hardcover and audiobooks.TK Books LLCContemporary fiction and science fiction; ebooks, softcover, hardcover and audiobooks.Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

Wishes and Knishes
Children's books are harder to write than one might think, according to Yona Diamond Dansky whose new book, Wishes and Knishes, elevates the Jewish pastry called a knish to a place of importance for young Kaley and her grandmother whom she calls Bubby.  The author's story contains a number of simple lessons parents or teachers can impart on their kids including the joy of cooking, responsibility and the importance of passing on family traditions. The author, a Bubby herself, is a life-long educator who gave herself permission later in life to sit down and write children's books. She also illustrates them herself, tapping into a talent she developed in a past life of teaching.

The Steampunk Explorer with Stephen Beale
There are a lot of people worldwide who are into Steampunk, and almost as many ways of describing it. Wikipedia says Steampunk is "a subgenre of science fiction that incorporates retrofuturistic technology and aesthetics inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. " As we find out in this episode, Steampunk is a form of creative expression among people who enjoy crafting, sculpting, painting, dressing and otherwise expressing themselves creatively. Its 19-century themes are enhanced by 21st-century sensibilities. And there's no one who knows more about the history, practice and sheer fun of Steampunk than Stephen Beale, a career journalist whose authoritative website https://steampunk-explorer.com/ is the first and last word on the subject.

Not Just Any Jeep: Jennifer Lane's Car Stories
Author Jennifer M. Lane turned her passion for an old Jeep into inspiration for her novel Of Metal and Earth. It's the story of a Jeep and the seven people who own it over its lifetime. The trials and tribulations of those humans form the heart and soul of the book and it may appeal to anyone who's had a soft spot in his/her heart for a car.  But as you might imagine, it is Jeep owners who have launched Of Metal and Earth into Amazon's Best Seller ranks. They are loyal and passionate and can't get enough about their Jeeps, other people's Jeeps and fictitious Jeeps. Jenn's book is by one measure an homage to one of America's storied motor vehicle brands and by another measure a look into the emotional ties people have with cars. Give a listen!

Don Berman and Dick Valentine both settled in Seattle more than 30 years ago. They found each other more than a decade ago and realized that they shared a common sensibility--breaking out of the traditional musical boundaries they grew up with and venturing into the art of free improvisation. While it's not understood by all, those musicians who express it are fully committed to telling stories through motifs and sketches. They leave it up to listeners to feel the sound and draw their own conclusions.

Action! The Re-Re-Relaunch of Steve Gabe
For a life so packed with creative ventures, work, music and acting, it's hard to know where to begin telling Steve Gabe's story. So, I started out with music and his colorful past as a singer, songwriter, drummer and guitarist. Life as a blues and rock musician was his passion. Along the way, there was acting school, a stint as a stand-up at Gotham Comedy Club and Caroline's and, oh yes, his career as an attorney. He had to make a living, right?The acting bug got its due when he studied at HB Studio in New York, then again just as COVID was ebbing when he auditioned and was chosen for the role of Daddy Murphy in the Summit Playhouse production of Bright Star. That led to other opportunities including  a significant role in an industrial film. He's hoping more acting comes his way. Meanwhile, he's still a practicing entertainment attorney and has a podcast called Live from the Vault where he tells stories of his brushes with greatness and plays music he wrote, performed or just plain loves.Join us for a fast 30 minutes with Steve Gabe who at age 65 is re-re-relaunching himself one more time!-----------------------------Steve's Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/stevegabeSteve's YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/@stevegabeTK Books LLC Contemporary fiction and science fiction; ebooks, softcover, hardcover and audiobooks.Support the Show.

Do You Know You?
How many of us have found ourselves living someone else's life? It's a reality that dawns on many of us  too late. But for Jazmine Stevenson, a woman in her 20's who has already experienced enough pain and mental anguish for a lifetime, the discovery came just in time.  With the help of a strong family support system, her faith and a good helping of determination, she found the strength to look at herself the way she really was and make positive changes. Her book Getting To Know Yourself: Do You Know You? is a perfect starting point for anyone seeking to do the same. We talk about fearlessly examining the person in the mirror, speaking out loud the unspoken, and how it opens the door to self-realization, self-confidence and personal honesty.  TK Books LLC Contemporary fiction and science fiction; ebooks, softcover, hardcover and audiobooks.TK Books LLCContemporary fiction and science fiction; ebooks, softcover, hardcover and audiobooks.Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.
