Actress and Director…

AMY LANDECKER Visits with Ric

She’s Back for Season 4 of the
Emmy®-Winning and Critically Acclaimed Hit

TRANSPARENT   Returning to Amazon Prime Video Friday September 22nd.

Landecker is best known for playing the first-born child in Transparent, Amazon Video’s groundbreaking series about a transgender woman and her chaotic yet lovable family. She stars opposite Jeffrey Tambor, Jay Duplass, Judith Light and Gaby Hoffman. Additionally, Landecker made her directorial debut on Transparent: The Lost Sessions, a 10-episode off shoot of comedic shorts for Funny or Die using Soloway's world of Pfeffermans and the cast of characters surrounding the often dysfunctional family.

Transparent‘s fourth season takes the Pfefferman family on a “spiritual and political journey as they dig deep into their family’s history.” That includes a trip to Israel, where Maura is chosen to speak at a conference and makes a “startling discovery.”

On the big screen, Landecker has completed production on A Kid Like Jake, an independent drama also starring Claire Danes and Jim Parsons, which is based on a celebrated Lincoln Center play about a couple trying to raise a 4-year-old-son who prefers to dress up as a princess instead of G.I. Joe. She most recently appeared opposite Salma Hayek and John Lithgow in Beatriz At Dinner.

Well Nourished: Mindful Practices to Heal Your Relationship with Food, Feed Your Whole Self, and End Overeating by Andrea Lieberstein

Many people use food to nourish themselves when what they are really hungry for is other forms of nourishment. What if we were living a life where we felt well-nourished emotionally, intellectually, physically, psychologically, spiritually, socially, and creatively? What if we were mindfully present to receive, experience, plan for, and engage in nourishing activities, moments, and practices regularly that fed us on many levels.

What if we were able to maintain an inner sense of balance and nourishment even when things are not perfectly in balance, and have the tools and practices to do so rather than turn to food at those times?

This book will show readers how to develop a mindful relationship to food and craft a well-nourished life with step-by-step examples, tools, and mindful practices that can be individualized to their unique needs.

Andrea Lieberstein, MPH, RDN, RYT, is a registered dietitian nutritionist, mindful eating and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) instructor, and coach. Andrea was a leader in developing and implementing mindfulness and mind-body programs at Kaiser Permanente Northern California for over 20 years and is a contributing author to the chapter on meditation in The Stress Reduction and Relaxation Training Workbook(5th edition), New Harbinger Press.

Andrea incorporates mindfulness-based eating awareness training (MB-EAT), MBSR, and other mindful eating and mindfulness-based mind-body practices in her private practice working with individuals on a wide range of nutritional challenges: nutrition for optimal well-being, disordered eating, overeating, weight management, body image, and stress-related issues and health concerns.

Andrea holds degrees from Stanford University and the University of California at Berkeley.

DEEP BLACK ROAD author Allen Scovil

Thirteen-year-old Ricky Sheppard really wants to get into robotics-something he has a definite talent for-and follow in the footsteps of his father, a professor and engineer at the University of Pittsburgh. He also has a crush on Suzanne Harrington, the only child of the extremely wealthy industrialist Bennett Harrington, but she doesn't care if he exists. Then they both find themselves roboticized, and must quickly find their way and their destiny in a world that has little time for robots that can think for themselves. When the two of them finally team up, they run afoul of Dr. Mella, the self-proclaimed emperor of the world, and must keep themselves alive long enough to work out their own considerable differences before Ricky must face the 'great and terrible' destiny that God gave him when he first became robotic.

Allen Scovil was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, and then went with his family to Ontario before he was five. He’s spent the rest of his time living in various places in Ontario ever since, getting educated, raising four children, and struggling to keep working (He’s an Aspie).

Now that he’s finally retired, he has the time to indulge his hobby of writing, which he began in 2003. He’s always been fascinated by science fiction and fantasy stories, and has searched for a way to make them Christ- and God-centred, instead of technology- or magic-centred. He has so far self-published six such books (print and ebook). The first, titled ‘Deep Black Road,’ is a science-fiction novel about a boy and girl who get roboticized, and are then tasked with saving the regular humans from themselves. The other four are in the series called ‘The Parables of the Game Master,’ which is a fantasy about a boy who is transported to a mysterious Land of the Heart run by the enigmatic Game Master, where there are mysteries to be solved, and lies to be untangled.

You can find his author pages on Facebook and Amazon.

He currently resides in Tillsonburg, Ontario, Canada, and is the proud grandfather of two boys and a girl.

He is a Faithwriters.com Platinum 500 member.

Are We Introducing Drugs To Children Too Early?

  Dr. Ed Carlton (www.carltonneurofeedbackcenter.com) is using his experience as a mechanical engineer and a health care professional to help patients who suffer from brain-based disorders find relief through a drug-free solution. Through a brain-training method known as neurofeedback, he has helped patients who suffer from the likes of ADD, ADHD, bi-polar disorder, PTSD, autism, epilepsy, insomnia and traumatic brain injuries. Carlton – author of the book The Answer – views neurofeedback training as a cross between engineering and medicine, using the best of both to provide long term, drug-free relief for patients. Carlton believes that through neurofeedback training, many symptoms caused by brain-based disorders can be eliminated without the use of pharmaceuticals.

She proudly displays collages, watercolors and photographs, many depicting colorful scenes that represent her vast worldview in one of the most exciting cities in the world.  Eve is also a very private person, and is humbled by all of the attention she has received through the years.

Whether it's peering through the lens of her camera or dipping her brush into watercolors, Ms. Blohm vividly brings images to life. From collages to watercolors to photographs, she enjoys creating art for herself and for others.

The artist has recently tried her hand at working in a new medium, felt-tip pen drawing. "I love it. It's like watercolor, only you use ink. It's beautiful," she said.

Jharrel Jerome & Justine Lupe Join Ric

The Busy Young Actors Rev Up the Action in
AT&T AUDIENCE Network’s Mr. Mercedes,
Based on the Novel by Stephen King.

Jharrel Jerome made his feature film debut in the Academy Award® winning film Moonlight. He recently wrapped production on the film Monster, based on the award-winning novel of the same name; and he plays a leading role in the upcoming movie, First Match. The Bronx native began his career in lead roles such as The Laramie Project and In The Heights. In addition to acting, Jharrel writes his own poetry and is a talented rapper, having been freestyling from the age of 11.

Denver native Justine Lupe started her career in Noah Baumbach's Frances Ha, opposite Greta Gerwig and Adam Driver and in Not Fade Away, opposite James Gandolfini. On stage, she has starred in the Philip Seymour Hoffman-directed drama A Family For All Occasions. Currently, she can be seen in John Singleton, FX series Snowfall. She was also a series regular on Younger and ABC’s Cristela.

In AT&T AUDIENCE Network’s drama series Mr. Mercedes, Jharrel co-stars as 'Jerome Robinson', a high school student who inadvertently becomes involved in an off -the-books investigation led by Hodges. Justine plays 'Holly Gibney’, a young woman with issues, including OCD and a sensory processing disorder, who is terribly observant and unfiltered. Both whip-smart, tech-savvy, and dear to Hodges, Holly and Jerome work together to help the retired detective uncover the identity of the Mercedes killer.

Mr. Mercedes is based on the book by Stephen King and tells the story of a psychopathic killer (Harry Treadaway) who drives a stolen Mercedes into a crowd and the recently retired detective (Brendan Gleeson) who tries to bring him down. The series is executive produced by King, Jack Bender (Game of Thrones) and David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies).
