In war-torn Congo, Mama Nadi keeps the peace between customers on both sides of the civil war by serving everything from cold beers to warm beds. This shrewd matriarch both protects and profits from the women whose bodies have become battlegrounds “ruined” by the brutality of government soldiers and rebel forces alike. Inspired by interviews conducted in Africa, this searing play is an engrossing and uncommonly human story told with humor and song, revealing the immeasurable loss and hopelessness of war, yet finding affirmation in life and hope.

by Matt Smith - Sep 26, 2014

Though many viewers were teased that the final season of PARENTHOOD was said to tie up loose ends (and while it may still indeed do that), you wouldn't know it from watching their first episode back from their summer hiatus. Straight from the get-go, we're in the hospital and the “cliffhanger” (Ruined by a particularly spoiling promo aired this summer) confirmed what we all were thinking: Amber's pregnant with Ryan's baby. I'm a little upset they didn't keep this cliffhanger going a little longer, but considering it's their final season, they've got much more to do than keep us wondering if the baby is Amber's. (Now we can focus on: will she keep it? With who else will she share the news? (more...)

S. N. Deinscheiss Pens Legal ThrillerS. N. Deinscheiss Pens Legal Thriller
by BWW News Desk - Oct 20, 2014

S. N. Deinscheiss always dreamed about writing fiction but never imagined his first book would be inspired by injustices in America's legal system. Now he taps that research to write his first novel, 'Wuwpoo,' book one of a three part series of thrillers that explore the impact of a justice system gone awry and its impact on families. Assaulted and tortured by law enforcement. Betrayed by his own lawyer in a custody battle. Financially Ruined by the opposing lawyer's tactics. The twists and turns attributed to the main character seem a little far-fetched to be real. 'With a little research, anyone can find examples of people going through similar adversity,' said Deinscheiss. But what does an ancient prophecy have to do with the courtroom drama? 'Absolutely nothing,' says the author. 'The book is a suspense thriller written for entertainment and the curse provided a nice twist for the story.' The setting and characters are allegorical depictions, including the author's pseudonym. Even though the plot is reality based, there's a significant amount of storytelling weaved in. 'There's a lot of the obvious that gets presented so extraordinarily different,' said Deinscheiss. About the Author: S. N. Deinscheiss grew up in the mountains of east Tennessee and Virginia where his love of the outdoors flourished and his interests in writing began. Just a passing notion more than twenty years ago, his urge to write was born again when he decided to change career tracks and become a full time writer. For more information about WUWPOO, please visit smashwords.com. You can also email the author at wuwpoo@gmail.com. (more...)
