BWW Review: Clever L.A. NOW AND THEN Shines at LACC
by Don Grigware - May 16, 2016

What a lovely surprise! I know that Bruce Kimmel is quite the clever gentleman and would not expect anything less than superlative work from his camp, but stepping down to the college campus level to review is not something that I particularly savor. These actors, with the exception of Robert Yacko and April Audia, are students, not yet professional performers as such. Needless to say, I was overwhelmed, not by the singing, but at least by the acting and overall drive and energy of the performers who delivered a mightily informative, nostalgic and fun show. It's called L.A. Now and Then, and it's a revue with songs and monologues that take a glance back at Los Angeles Through the Years and compare past with present cultural values. Kimmel as director maintains a great pace throughout: no lags; the show moves! (more...)

STILL MISS MAX Revised Edition to be Published
by BWW News Desk - Jun 9, 2016

Advance copies now available only from The Campaign - Official release soon. Missing Max is a compelling story of one mother's journey as Julie recalls the extraordinary events surrounding the death of her Marine son, Corporal Max W. Donahue, who was killed in Afghanistan in August, 2010. You will share her despair, fears, tears and finally, her hope as Julie moves through the days and months following word of Max's injury, and then his death. Missing Max is a must-read for anyone who has lost a loved one. It encourages the reader to live a life focused on making their lost loved-one proud. Julie writes of moving through the grieving process and, through her faith and the love of family and friends, begins the healing process and going forward with her life. Julie's hope in writing Max's story is that it will provide strength, hope, courage and faith to those who need it. And she hopes that Max, and all fallen soldiers, will never be forgotten. 'Still Missing Max: The Expanded Version' tells of the intimate way God carried Julie Through the Years following Max's death. Even if the reader doesn't share her faith, most won't dispute that something miraculous was and is occurring. The War Writers' Campaign is a literary nonprofit with the mission of generating social change for veterans and their families through written awareness. This book is one of many to come from The War Writers' Campaign, a nonprofit publisher that aims to support veteran and family member programs. 100% of all proceeds, beyond a royalty to the authors, are utilized for transformative transitional programs that promote storytelling in our community. 'There are some wonderful resources out there for those who have had a loved one die while in service. There's TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors), Gold Star Wives of America, and American Gold Star Mothers, to name a few. And then there's Julie Schrock. She lost her son, a Marine dog handler I feature in Soldier Dogs, to an IED in Afghanistan. Since his death she has devoted her life to inspiring people via talks and a book to live the best lives they can, and to cope with losses. She has been through so much, and is a true inspiration, whatever your religious views. This mom of a hero is a hero herself.' - Maria Goodavage - NY Times Best Selling Author - Soldier Dogs Julie Schrock - Author and Mother of Max W. Donahue Julie Schrock has experience and training in a variety of fields, none of which are traditional qualifications for writing a book. What qualifies her to write THIS book are her experiences as a mother of a Marine son deployed to and killed in Afghanistan. On that topic, she is a subject-matter expert. Julie is available for speaking engagements and personal appearances. She can be contacted at The War Writers' Campaign is an independent book publisher.

BWW Blog: De'Ja Williams - Introducing Me
by Guest Blogger: De'Ja Williams - Jul 6, 2016

I think it's only fair, dear reader, that I tell you a little bit of myself. If you are to continue indulging in this relationship we are forming it would only suffice that you know a bit about me and where I come from. I am a rising junior attending the private prep school MICDS in Saint Louis Missouri. I am an actress, poet, and story teller. I have always known I was an artist. Details often jump up at me and claim my attention. Sometimes they were sights or smells--vivid and demanding to be translated into art. The world has always been a bright and lively place to me. Through the Years my mediums have danced about: from singing to dancing, painting to acting, drawing to modeling; however, the stage has always been my true home.   (more...)
