She now coaches people on how to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle; she’s an avid plant-based nutrition advocate and educator, chef, plus a yoga & meditation lover.

It's Valentine's Day 2014 - and due to a snowstorm we are postponing the live interview scheduled for today (John Geiger with "The Angel Effect." ) I was looking for a past show that would fit with the theme of the day - LOVE in all it's myriad forms - and I believe it is fair to say that is Larry Baker's prevailing theme. I hope you enjoy this rebroadcast.
Iowa City author, Larry Baker, has written five novels, including "Athens, America" and "The Flamingo Rising". His most recent book, "Love & Other Delusions", presents a fresh take on the story of a married woman having an affair with a younger man.
Larry Baker is currently an adjunct Assistant Professor for the University of Iowa, as well as an adjunct instructor at Kirkwood Community College. Baker is also working on a documentary about the creative process, focusing on the writing of "A Good Man," in which Baker drew on, or "stole" as he would say, from a variety of predecessors. Check out Monica's review of "A Good Man" at http://www.writersvoices.com/books-review/books-review/good-man-larry-baker/. <--break->
Snow. I've had it up to here...literally. And I'm gesturing about chest-high. And that's about how high the pile of snow next to my driveway was at its largest. Some warmer winds have blown into Chicago and the pile is beginning to shrink. But there is still dribs and drabs(my father's phrase) of snow in the forecast. Mind you, I was born and raised in rural Iowa. So I've seen some snow and some winter in my days. But this one has gone on quite long enough. If anyone out there has control of this winter weather, please knock it off...now.
BREAKING NEWS: Due to the snow, Caroline can't make it to the station today so we are postponing this interview until March 7. Tune in today for a rebroadcast of Iowa City author Larry Baker with "Love and Other Delusions"
Today's guest on Writers' Voices with Monica and Caroline, John Geiger, is perhaps best known as the writer of "The Third Man Factor," which explores the oft-reported phenomenon of an unseen presence, or "third man" offering guidance and support to people, such as Arctic explorers, who are facing life and death struggles.
After that book was published, Geiger was flooded with stories from ordinary people who'd had a similar experience in times of crisis. In "The Angel Effect: We Are Never Alone," Geiger shares some of these first-hand accounts,and delves into research on various explanations for The Angel Effect, ranging from the scientific to the mystical.
Whether you believe in angels, or find the power of the human brain to create illusions to be a more convincing explanation, you will find this a fascinating interview.
