First time author, Vernelle Nelson, uses down to earth everyday language to help guide readers to inner peace, balance & self confidence. Vernelle resides in Southern Florida – her experiences range from teacher to head of On-Air Promotions at National Public Radio headquarters, radio disc jockey, as well as being a television & radio producer. She has published poetry, human-interest stories & news articles in the past. Vernelle was featured today on the
Authors Read radio show to read from her debut non-fiction self-help book: Favorable Conditions. The author tells me that the book is a great tool for individuals as well as classes & home study groups – & is designed to help readers maintain a focus & balance in life.

While you are there, take some time to browse through the archives to see if there is anything you would like to listen to - or would like your children to listen to... we have lots of children's authors reading thier stories on

-- Quote of the Day --
In keeping with the genre that was featured on Authors Read this morning, I'd like to share with you the following quote of the day:

“…I was feeling really negative about things, I just curled up and was just waiting to die, I was so negative and depressed. And then I met with a Buddhist lama …and he told me to stop feeling sorry for myself and start focusing on the happiness of other people - and I was a little bit offended at first. I thought, you just don’t understand… but the more I did, the better I felt. …(examples of random acts of kindness) inspiring messages on people’s windshields at the cancer center where people are getting treatment …buy a person’s lunch …we’ve taken flowers into the hospital and asked the nurses to give them to the patient who needed them the most… we complement clerks to their bosses… Plant a tree, call an old friend, send a thank you note, send a Christmas card to a seniors center for a senior who doesn’t have relatives … there are so many free, simple and low cost things we can do that can make a huge impact on peoples lives…
