Deborah Kobylt LIVE: Marcela Benson

“Love, Peace, and Vegetables,” the title of this stunning book by #MarcelaBenson, which sets the stage for a marvelous discussion about how what we feed our bodies reflects in every way on how we move through the world physically and mentally.

The book is a stunning 444-page Bible of recipes, thoughts, photos, and more about mindful eating, cooking, and treatment of self. It’s about taking a moment to understand how we treat ourselves, and the fuel we need to be our best for ourselves, families and our communities. She also talks about her children, and how a healthy combination of foods helped heal certain ailments that some wanted to treat with pharmaceuticals.

I’ve interviewed many authors about their journeys with food, Marcela is someone I truly connected with from the inside out. Now, if only I could cook like her! Please enjoy our show on all audio and video platforms of #DeborahKobyltLIVE, and invite your friends too. We look forward to hearing from you. #DeborahZaraKobylt #health #food #vegan #lifestyle

Deborah Kobylt LIVE: Karen White

Ever had an idea for a novel but didn’t know where to start? Then please join us in welcoming best-selling author #KarenWhite, who never took a writing course, and didn’t start writing until 10-years post college. Thirty-one books later, with two-million copies sold in 15 languages, she’s glad she took a chance, ditching the world of business for the adventure of writing historical fiction.

Karen grew up in London, in a house full of brothers, and she would fine her peace by reading. She talks about getting lost in books, often fantasizing she was one of the characters in the books.
Karen’s latest novel, “The Shop On Royal Street,” is due out in March.

She’ll be joining us, with a special guest who is a frequent recurring character in her novels. But I’ll keep that as a secret. She also wants to encourage other writers to pick up a pen and write if they have a story in them. No need for formal training, just write. And read. A lot.
