Authors on LUTV


April 15, 2016

This morning I hosted two IMPART programs for LUTV at Lindenwood University’s educational station. IMPART is a program that explores media, communications and public affairs. It can be seen on Charter Communications and U-verse in the St. Louis area. Out side of St. Louis you can watch it at

I had the opportunity to talk with Don and Dianna Graveman, authors of Legendary Locals of St. Charles and Chris DiGiuseppi co-author of The Light Bringer Trilogy.

The Graveman’s book traces the history of St. Charles, Missouri by tracing the lives of those who pioneered the community and those who make it a vibrant and successful community today. The Gravemans have also written historical books on other communities in Missouri.

They are very nice people who write historical books that go beyond the traditional stories and introduce you to interesting and facinating people and stories whose importance might have been overlooked if not for Don and Dianna Graveman.

Chris DiGiuseppi and his co-author Mike Force have impressive careers in law enforcement and have written a different kind of crime story. In their three books, The Light Bringer, The Fallen and the last and most recent story, The Risen. Chris and Mike take you on a “police ride along,” that will take you places you would never expect to go. A crime story rooted in the real world with a good measure of the supernatural, a good mix.

All of these books are available on Amazon.

And as soon as we get it in gear to get the cover photo completed, we hope Death By Lethal Affection will be available soon, as well.
