Today Jeffrey Marshall talks with me about writing techniques, writing style, and his thrilling mystery book - Undetected. This is episode 299 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

Jeffrey Marshall has spent many years reporting on facts and truth for various newspapers and publications, including The New York Times and the Associated Press. Once part of a team nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for reporting, he now has turned his attention to fiction and has just released a psychological thriller that involves a narcissist and sociopath and revolves around a family in an affluent community where things are not what they seem. This riveting thriller takes us into the lives of the 1% -- and why their relationships and problems really mirror the 99%.

Jeffrey is a retired journalist and the author of three books, including Little Miss Sure Shot - a historical novel about Annie Oakley. He has been published widely in newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times and New Jersey Monthly, and was at various times a reporter, editor, feature writer, columnist, and book reviewer.

A little about Undetected

Suzy Perry, a lovely, accomplished older woman, has married into a new family in Westchester County, N.Y after being widowed not long before in Atlanta.

Her new husband, Dean Perry, is besotted with her, but his son Alex and daughter-in-law Lisa are troubled by how little they know about her. Who is she?

Little by little, clues and tidbits of information persuade Alex that he needs to know more.

As the questions pile up, Alex, a journalist, elects to hire a private detective to probe Suzy’s past, without informing his father.

Over time, it becomes clear that Suzy changed her name when she moved to Atlanta -- and that she had been married for many years to a car dealer in Missouri who died suddenly shortly before she left.

Is all this innocent, or something more sinister? Once circumstantial, the evidence becomes more concrete -- and then Suzy is on the run.

Jeff has a bachelor's degree from Princeton and a master's in journalism from Northwestern.

His interests include tennis, golf, fly-fishing, travel, hiking and movies. He and his wife, Judy, have two rambunctious dogs, Maggie and Blaze.

Thanks for listening.

Today I'm talking with Hannah Stevens the author of Borneo Experience. Hannah and I talk about her writing, traveling, and her desire to help protect endangered wildlife. This is episode 298 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, my audio podcast. Here is a little about Borneo Experience

 For the past several years Jeanie Williams, former war correspondent-turned-wildlife activist has been traveling the world reporting on the plight of the wildlife on our planet. After having been on assignment in New Zealand, South Island, she was ready to return home when her boss at WorldCorp News in New York City contacted her and asked if she would travel to Sabah, Borneo to report on pet trafficking of the wildlife in that region. When he told her about orangutan babies being ripped from their mother’s arms, she could not resist. Once she arrives, however, she finds the problem more complex than she ever imagined and the powerful trafficking cartel is again trying to thwart her efforts to tell the world about the cruelty they inflict on the animals.

This is the fourth in a series of mysteries by Hannah Stevens based on her world travels. The first was Murder on Safari, set in Kenya, Africa, then Iceberg Murders, which takes place on the Antarctic Peninsula and most recently, Bird House Adventures, based in New Zealand, South Island.

Hannah Stevens, author, is also a freelance travel writer, writing for publications locally and nationwide under her real name Elaine Mays. After a long career as a software design engineer with several large corporations, Elaine wrote and has published seven novels under the pen name of Hannah Stevens; The President’s Wife, the sequel Madam POTUS, She Sleeps with Dogs, Murder on Safari, The Iceberg Murders, Bird House Adventure in New Zealand, and now Borneo Experience.

She is also a cancer survivor of nine years. She lives with her two dogs, a Brittany spaniel, Lily and a Weimaraner, Sophia - in Phoenix, Arizona.

Tre Gammage notes, “As an entrepreneur, podcaster, and speaker my purpose is to make it easier to do what you love.” This is episode 297 of Teaching Learning Leading K-12 where Tre and I talk about living your dream, consulting, his book Every Decision Counts, and The Dash Podcast.

Tre was born and raised in South Bend Indiana where football was his first love, and it carried him to his first dream - To play division 1 college football!

He recalls that his dream taught him a lot, “all we did was lose and half the time I rode the bench. Fortunately, while I didn’t fit on the field I found my way off the field - Committing my time to diversity affairs, global perspectives, and decision making. These experiences made me well rounded and helped me realize my ambition to add value to everybody I have a conversation with. I didn’t decide to chase my dream until one of my professor’s asked, If money was no object what would you do with your life?”

Tre says, “When you see someone live their dream it makes you want to help them reach that
dream or live your own. Every day I wake up and do what I love to and leave a blueprint
for the next generation. “

Tre founded The Gammage Consulting Group. Its primary service is helping K – 12 schools implement social and emotional learning programs. He uses a 5 step process that takes you from managing multiple behavior systems to one school wide framework that supports growth
in Students and Educators. He also recently released Every Decision Counts: 8 Lessons I Wish They Taught Me in School. He is the producer and host of The Dash Podcast. Since 2015 Tre has spoken to over 100 audiences totaling more than 10,000 people.

Lots to learn today!
