Kathryn interviews Author Victoria Lowery.Therapist and bestselling author Victoria Lowery introduces the concept of the shadow self (the embodiment of one’s hidden elements) to the newest generation of young adult readers. Lowery brings us a kid-friendly story that shares the journey of Polly Parker, who has waited 14 years to meet her shadow and learn the six secrets that are prophesied to save the world from ancient, evil bloodlines.The six secrets have been kept hidden for millennia by a small group of so-called Freethinkers who wish to keep the rest of the world uninformed and underprivileged. The time has come for the seers to demand fairness and a new world of unity for all. But this directly affects the Freethinkers way of life, and they will stop at nothing to stay in control. She has been a radio host, a cable talk show host, a newspaper columnist and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Ohio. She also served as a Make-A-Wish Ambassador.Kathryn also interviews Author Afarin Bellisario PhD. While other Iranian girls of the early twentieth century cook, sew, and dream of a family, Gohar climbs trees, reads books, and fantasizes about traveling. But when her forbidden correspondence with a local boy is discovered, the prospect of banishment alarms the fatherless Gohar. She welcomes the protection of Saleh Mirza, a powerful nobleman who adopts her, and accepts his choice of husband for her: a 55-year-old politician, Haji. Aged just 14, she vows to enter her marital home in a white chador and exit in a white shroud. But fate has much more in store for her. She risks her life—and her marriage—to join activists seeking modernization and sovereignty, inciting the wrath of colonial powers: Russia and England. As Gohar struggles between tradition and modernity, between her vows and her attraction to a man she’s never spoken to, Russia invades northern Iran, and everything changes. Born and raised in Tehran in a family with its feet in the past and its head in the future, Afarin Bellisario led a successful career in high-tech and international business in the US after earning her PhD from MIT.
