PTSD - World Of Ink Special


Please join Marsha for an open discussion on PTSD with Author Peggy Griswold and Reviewer Angela Rackard Campbell on Friday December 16 at 4PM EST 3PM CST.

Peggy Griswold, a Psychology student, wanted to specialize in Ptsd. "Be careful what you wish for," She writes. She met a soldier she eventually married who has severe Ptsd. That's when the real lessons started. Her story spans a 16-year period, and is written in two parts. She chronicles how others' Ptsd, especially her husband's, has completely changed her own life. She endured loneliness, loss of dreams, domestic violence, jealousy, isolation, lack of understanding, and discrimination, but she also learned about true love and compassion.

Peggy is opening up her private world; most people who live with Ptsd are very guarded about what they deal with. Divorce and suicide rates among veterans are very high; she hopes her story will help others understand Ptsd, and see that it's possible to be happy and thrive while living with someone who has Ptsd.

Angela Rackard Campbell has reviewed Peggy's book and she will be on the show to discuss her feeling about how a book like Peggy's should be reviewed with good taste and a knowledge of the subject. Angela is a book reviewer who tells you what she thinks and reviews with a great sense of honesty.

Besides hosting Radio shows Marsha is an author, screenwriter and a media consultant. Her shows reflect today’s world in both non -fiction as well as fiction. She is currently working on her screenplays and her shows will reflect her true love for unique stories in books as well as movies.

Understanding Dyslexia By Emily Lapkin

  • Ciara Knight - In The Spirit Of Life


    A friend once told me that I live eighty percent of my life in my imagination and twenty percent in the real world. I can’t deny this. I know growing up I drove my family and teachers insane. In my defense, I wasn’t intentionally ignoring my fifth grade math teacher by watching an ant crawl across the wall for several hours. I was on a grand adventure with a special-ops army ant that was defending his colony from the evil palmetto bugs.

    In sixth grade, my adventures came to a screeching halt when I was moved from the regular education classroom to, what my classmates referred to as the stupid trailer, hidden behind the school. Okay, that wasn’t the word they taunted, but the other word shall not be used. This was the day my best friend said she couldn’t be my friend anymore because I was too dumb. For years, I fought my imagination, believing it was something evil that kept me from learning, but it never felt right to me. 

    When I graduated high school, I tried junior college because I didn’t know what else to do, but when I read about dance auditions at Walt Disney World, I knew I had to try. It was a long shot, but I auditioned anyway and made it. I’d like to say I got the part because I was such an amazing dancer, but honestly, I wasn’t. Instead, after many grueling days of auditions I made it to the final round. After being lined up, the judges stated there were five spots remaining. When they reached halfway down the line, and only had one spot left to fill, I stepped forward and said, “what about me?” The judge in charge said, “Okay.” Yep, that’s how I got the part, and how I learned if you want something you have to go after it. 
    This door opened into a world full of imaginative people like myself. I felt like I’d arrived home. Unfortunately, after a year and a half, at nineteen years of age, my dance career ended due to a foot injury. With my tail between my legs, I returned home and went to college. I again, abandoned my imagination and worked hard to prove I could be as smart as everyone else, earning a 3.89 in my first two years. For a decade or so, I worked and studied, avoiding the voices in my head, or the settings that drew me from the real world. Although, I wrote a few short stories that were published in literary magazines during college, I never fully embraced my imagination until after I married and had children. 

    When my kids were young, my husband and I decided I should stay home with them. It was a tough decision, after spending my life proving that the little girl with a speech impediment and language disorder could succeed. At first, I struggled with the extra time and lack of socialization, but then my husband gave me a gift I’ll never forget, a swift kick in the butt. He told me to get over myself and write the damn book. 

    Knowing my husband is always right; I embraced my adventures into ‘ciaraland’ instead of trying to push them from my mind and wrote my first novel. Even though my first novel wasn’t published, the minute I wrote ‘The End’ I knew I’d found my true calling. After completing some craft classes, I embarked on another grand adventure full of fantastical elements and crazy plot twists, and then several more. I’m proud to say each of the following books have been published, receiving accolades beyond my wildest imagination. 

    I’ll always struggle with attention span, public speaking and language issues while writing. I know telling stories is what I was born to do. If I even inspire one person, lifting them to a place beyond their everyday world, then I’ve accomplished more than I’d ever dreamed possible.

    The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
    -Eleanor Roosevelt
